Olivia, The Good Dog

Feeling very photogenic, some recent photos from a day in the life of Olivia, our Labrador-Border Collie mix:

Very happy

Rolling around on her back

Saying her prayers so sweetly
Ready for bed
p.s.  Had to add this funny note:  Apparently dogs can see things on a computer screen, because Olivia just went nuts when I showed her the pictures of herself on my computer.  I don't think she was indulging me because three times she actually put her feet up on the desk to see better (only the one with her rolling on her back did not elicit the same response) and twice went to look behind the desk, as if there were some other dog there!

Bungee Ballet

Love this bungee ballet scene from the Lara Croft Tomb Raiders movie -- it looks like my kind of fitness workout.  I have the double story foyer, but would have to do some major changes before I could do it...  like removing the chandelier, installing hurricane glass in the front window and reinforcing the ceiling!  Probably not a realistic dream, but here is how cool it looks in the movie:

May Flowers

Spring is a really beautiful time of year at our house.  Here are some of the flowers that are blooming now:

Peonies from the front walk make a beautiful bouquet
Lots of blooms in the backyard:

Climbing Cecile Brunner roses along the back deck

More blooms on the back deck -- wisteria
