Welcome(d) back

We've sure been getting lots of attention from the boys since we got back. Normally Sam only brings down offerings in the evening, but our first full day back, he started in the morning and brought four down. I think his previous record was two in an evening.

And there's the grooming.

Yesterday was my first day back at the pool, and Tuesday was a great walk at the marina.


It could have been a better morning for time lapses, but at least I found two nice, inconspicuous spots for the cameras. A woman walking her dog saw me fetch this one from its perch. It was funny, I walked the long way around the building hoping she'd be gone, but her dog was having too much fun.

If I knew this one would be mostly sun, I'd have put a prism lens in the case.

My first day back at work yesterday was a lot quieter than I thought it would be, so I was able to take advantage of an appointment that came available a week earlier than what I'd scheduled at the dentist. I've had a chip in one of my front teeth since I was 12 or so, from when I knocked it on a friend's glass coke bottle. We were watching TV in the dark, with me on the couch and him on the floor in front of it. I leaned forward to say something, not realizing he was holding his bottle up. Oops.

The way the chip looked never bothered me, but a few years ago, it started feeling rough. I've had it buffed down a few times, knowing that I couldn't do that forever. A few weeks ago, I noticed it was growing, so I decided it was time to finally fix it. Now I've got a chip-free tooth for the first time in 30+ years. It's taking some getting used to.

Got the 30-year-old chip in my tooth fixed because it was starting to grow.

They matched the color quite well, but I made it black and white because I didn't notice until after I took the "before" picture that my lip was a little dry. Can't retake it now! I'll get a good color photo at some point.

Yesterday was a lovely day for a time lapse.
