“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliott Erwitt

Call Me Sleepy

 Raining off and on all day.

 At 10am a photographer came up (Glenn Emerson) to do a photo shoot for our campaign.  99% of the time I am the one taking pictures, so this was rare.  Had a ball.  5 different settings with different clothes.  Can't wait to see them.

While I was doing that, Gary picked up Finn and Coop.  They went out for brunch and then headed toward Hamlin Beach, where they collected some stones and went for a 3 mile walk.

 We decided to put them in quart jars filled with water.

 Tony and Claire stopped in for a few minutes on their way to dinner.  They needed a garlic fix.
We don't get to see them very often as the live in Saratoga in the warm months and Florida during the winter.  Always fun to catch up with them.
 Going out to dinner at the Kutz House tonight, so I made a big bowl of coleslaw.
Red cabbage, craisins, apple, red pepper and grapes.
 Once again it was raining when I went out to do evening chores....
the sun was shining at the same time.

 Got cleaned up at went over to one of my all time favorite houses.
 Quaint, gorgeous, warm, comfy....perfect.

 Twelve of us were there...

 and we were able to catch up with Randy and Judy who are visiting for a few days.
They had a house in Brockport for several years and sold it many months ago, making their full time home in Florida.  They are missed by all of us.
 Great company.  Great meal.

 Archie gave me a t-shirt so I could trade it for a larger one and didn't I leave it there.
I'm pooped.
Night all.


  1. So great to catch up with old friends, Lori. We seem to be doing this more and more as we get older! I love that old house. Will we get to see you for a change, once you post the photos from the shoot? I am never in a photo, for the same reason as yours. However, today I have a VIDEO of myself feeding my young pup! Quite strange. Have a great day. Jo

  2. It looks like a great time was had by all!

  3. I just love reading your blog and all your spectacular photos. What an enchanted life you lead. :)

  4. Friends, fun and food, how can it be any better?
