I like giraffes, don't you? Maybe it's because they are tall that I find them so appealing. I do not, however, have quite as long a neck.


This is from my trip to the Boise Zoo last month. It's a nice little zoo, and I had fun getting photography tips from my brother as we walked around. It was like we had our own little photo safari.

I've been working on my jelly roll quilt. 126 triangles down, 78 more to go. I've started putting pieces up on my design wall and I think I'm going to love this quilt. I really like creating my own originals, sorting through fabric and finding just the right combination, but sometimes it's so nice to just let someone else do all the thinking work, and just enjoy the patchwork zone that I get into, cutting, sewing and pressing.

Winston is laying on his back, paws in the air, and just started wagging his tail for no apparent reason. He's such a happy dog, I can't help but smile when I'm around him. Yesterday morning I was loading the car with bags for Good Will. I left it open while I went back in the house to get ready for work. When I cam back out to leave, a good 20 minutes later, there he was, sitting in the driver's seat, ready to go! I was tempted to take him with me to work, but it wouldn't have been much fun for him to lay under my desk all day.


  1. That is an AMAZING photo and if the zoo has a photo contest (as many do) you must enter it! Beautiful!
    Smooches to Winston!
    I don’t always comment but I always read – thanks for your posts. 🙂

  2. I love that photo too! I love giraffe’s eyes. So sweet.
    As always, love to hear what you’re up to.

  3. Brilliant giraffe shot! Love the eye and is that the tongue or lip? 🙂

  4. Mr.P and I went for a walk by the river the other day and we caught a glimpse of the giraffes over the fence. They’re so cute. I have an affinity toward giraffes, too. I think it gives me hope that being tall can also be graceful and attractive. I’m still working on it.

say something nice...
