Beautiful blue skies in the back yard.
We took J to work and were a little disturbed by the number of vultures hanging out on his building. (Is there a hidden meaning?)
We picked J up from work and drove to get his new-to-him car near the big city. On the way home I drove on major city roads for the first time ever.

On a walk with Finn I stopped to look at the flowers. I didn't know that chickory petals looked like that on the ends.
A neighbor gave us the most beautiful eggs.
He is always building something--we have a huge stash or cardboard and recyclables in the basement.

We were leaving for our big summer vacation early on Monday morning so we were trying to squeeze in as much Finn-time as possible before we left.
We tried to go to bed early because we were leaving bright and early for Montana and the Canadian Rockies.
