Murphy in her sheepskin

This is our oldest cat, Murphy. She's 10 years old.

She loves to sleep in her sheepskin, it's one of her favorite places. She has other sleeping places, but this one is all hers. None of the other cats sleep in this sheepskin.

Tiptoe through the tulips with me

One of our out of town friends went with us to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm in Woodburn, Oregon. Every year in March and April this farm has a Tulip Festival. We were down that way, checking out Fry's and other stores, when we decided to go there on a whim.

Even though it's near the end of the festival (it was supposed to end today, but they extended it a week), there were still some awesome blooms.

I took this with my dad's Nikon D50, which he graciously loaned me to go to the STC conference in Atlanta. His D50 is much much lighter than my D100, and both cameras use the same batteries and chargers. His camera will make it easy to take photos without worrying about the weight of the camera with my shoulder recovery.

40 is the new 30!

I can't believe I'm 40. I remember when I was a child and a teenager, 40 seemed SO FAR AWAY and *old*!

Stub Stewart State Park

Today my husband and I went to Stub Stewart State Park in Buxton, Oregon. It's about 27 miles away, but still in the same county... :)

It's Oregon's newest state park, and just opened sometime in the last two years.

I didn't take a lot of pictures, but I did get a few. It was hard holding the camera and pressing the button on the camera with the same hand. You don't realize how much you rely on two hands to use a camera, until you can't! :) Good thing for hand size point and shoot cameras.

Isn't it gorgeous?
