Pattern writing makes my brain hurt. So I turn to other, non-taxing activities. Like playing with the iPhone 5 photo lens attachment.

Macro: (the first shot is my in-progress Tea with Jam & Bread, the second two are panels of our dining room table runner)

Fish-Eye: (both of my pal, Otis, just because he’s so photogenic)

And lastly, Macro: (a kitchen shot was the best I could do today … too cold to go outside)



Anyhoo, enough of that. Friday we had a going-away/goodbye party for one of favorite employees. I will miss her terribly. Especially the outbursts of song. And the mustaches.

Yesterday Otis and I took a nice snowy hike on the trails behind the Roosevelt Mansion. Perfect day for  it — a bit wet and muddy, but I think both of us had a good workout.

That’s all I’ve got today. We are enjoying a very relaxing weekend — I think every weekend should be three days long. Wonder if I can arrange that somehow.
