A pretty sad presentation for storm preparations at the Home Depot. They only suggested water and various light solutions. No whistles, tools, maps, batteries, plastic sheeting and a bunch of other stuff I could think of.

Had a wonderful evening after work with British friends at a farm where we ate organic food, drank beer and wine, and watched sheep being sheared. Most of my friends have cats or dogs but Ann and Robert have a lamb who thinks she's a dog. Meet Lady Georgiana.

Another rainy day at Meadow House but the honeysuckle smells wonderful in the damp air, especially through the bathroom window.

These two bottles of red wine have been sitting on a shelf at work for way too long. Trying to pluck up the courage to take them home, drink them, then just put back the empty bottles....

Hmmm, lots of wood brought home from work. What shall I do with it? Watch this space!

An afternoon spent in the garden, and splitting my huge boston ferns was one of my jobs.

Getting ready for our Tom Selleck paddle. Big Red's looking great!

Met this guy on the trail today lugging around the hugest lens on the end of a Canon that I'd ever seen. He photographs mainly birds.

The production area is empty at 3pm. Everyone had to leave because we were all stuffed and drowsy after our free lunch of the best papusas ever, delivered by a happy client! Or maybe it's just because it's a holiday weekend!

Finally getting my patio sorted out out and ready for potting plants this weekend . I had to move some tree trunks and disrupted an ants' nest. It was pretty cool watching how they 'packed up' and moved everything, and the speed at which they did it.

Kota Kat happened to walk past just as I was taking a photo of a dandelion seed head. Looks like he's caught in a web.

Photoshopping a picture of Den-Den. The full story in Lucent Moments later in the week.

Waiting for work outside a 7/11 in Manassas. Usually there's a group but today he looked kind of lonely there on his own, I wished I could offer him a job.

Mary larking about on a bronze pig at Brandywine River Museum, PA.

Posing next to a Rolls Royce at Winterthur Museum where we've just seen the Downton Abbey exhibit and toured the house.

Severe flooding on the way to work. This is the crossroads at Manassas Battlefields and I'm about to go through the water that is flowing over the top of a bridge which is actually supposed to be a spanning a small creek.

Absolutely humongously massive pineapple I bought at the IGA today. The biggest I've ever seen! Will be taken to work tomorrow in chunks and dipped in yoghurt. Yum!

General Tsao's chicken, one of the few things I can taste at the moment!

Sick, sick, sick. So tired of being sick, on my 6th day now...

Being so sick that I had to cancel all plans was a positive thing for Rosie Lee. She was ecstatic that I stayed home all day.

A trilillium, one of the vast spread that grow not far from Marshall.

One of the cats' toys. I feel like he looks, so sick and zero energy.

First time I've seen a cross profile of a new road, showing large and small gravel and 4 layers of tarmac. This was in Chantilly on Rte 50. Won't be any potholes in this for a while!

A photo of my 50D screen. At Blandy photo club and our subject for this evening's shoot is 'texture'. I think I got it when I spotted this little frog dozing on a warm rock. The image on my camera is much better focused than this shot.

A game of chess has some guys engrossed near China Town this morning.We came across them as we had a walk about after breakfast, before we left the Big Apple.

The view from Staten Island looking across the Hudson, our last stop before crossing Staten Bridge.

A business opposite us has been continuously taking our parking spaces, and today 2 of our guys revolted by blocking in their vehicles. It worked, and a few of the cars were moved.

Because I left for work a little later than usual it took me 2 1/4 hours to travel under 30 miles. The joys of NoVA traffic. I took these images along the route which although was very slow was, for the most part, pretty.
