June's stupid life · Photo essays

Picture book. Pictures of your dogs-a, and your antipasta, a long time ago. Or, yesterday.

I asked all y'all all all to send me pictures of what you were up to yesterday, and here they are.

Siren
Siren sent me the first photo of her happy-go-lucky self, right at midnight Sunday morning. She did not tell me her locale, but she said "Eastern time," which leads me to believe she is somewhere in the East.

And by the way, when I said give me your locale, I meant where geographically. You have no idea how many of you said, "Locale: in my kitchen." Sighhhhh.

I like Siren's hair. I wish I could achieve that disheveled-on-purpose look, but I never can. Too coarse. My hair, I mean.

Justtrytogetinhere
I took this one at 12:15 a.m., Greensboro, NC, when I was trying to get into bed and fricken Noah's Arc was in my way. Look how Tallulah looks so put out.

Betty
Mrs. Blue took this at 7:05 a.m. She said she is happily homeless at the moment. Now we gotta look at her blog to see why. In case my cousin Katie reads this, when someone's name is in blue, it means I linked to their blog.

Spot front
Joanie's cat Spotte, who is one of those half-a-face kitties I love so much, was annoyed that it was 7 a.m. in California and he had to pose rather than get fed. Both halves were bugged.

Dearest
Mommy Dearest showed us the sunrise in Florida. Beeyotiful.

Regjo
Regular Joann's family at 8:30 in the morning.

Michigan
And in a direct juxtaposition from the Florida morning, hello Barb's back yard in Michigan.

Twelvedays
Faithful Reader and one of my favorite people TwelveDaysOld snuggled with her cat at 10 a.m. in Oregon.

  Newarkten

Teechurchtenfifteen
Tee in Georgia was in church at 10:15. Holy cats, that's a big congregation.

IMG_0924
Here is Hulk, who I think cheated and took his photo on Saturday, ice fishing. Eeek. All i can say is thank heavens for beer.

Mycyclamen
Linda took a photo of her cyclamen, then went on my blog yesterday and reported that she did so, which lead Siren to spend the rest of the day wondering what a "cyclamen" was. She thought maybe cyclamen were men who don't commit.

And by the way, if you sent me your picture and then two hours later sent me another email saying, "I forgot to tell you my blog link/time of day/location" I just had too many photos and emails so slog through to go back and find your photo and add the info. I am sorry. I am a cyclawoman.

Lidsville
Kelly watched Lidsville on the West Coast at 10:30 a.m. Lidsville. Hold on to your hat.

Stephani
Here is a fancy shot of Tampa, Florida, taken by Stephanie at 11:33 a.m.

Jennifer
Jennifer didn't feel well and was trying to convince herself to eat this blueberry toast at noon in Florida. I must be big in Florida. Do any of you know Barry Gibb? Tell him I said hey.

DuckinWater
The Zadge's dog Harry dropped his duck in water. I guess he didn't want it to feel like a duck out of water. BAH! Anyway, Zadge, Harry and the duck live in Denver.

Lisapie
LisaPie in Texas enjoys reading the obits on Sunday while she eats tacos. Kills me. So to speak.

Shelleytwelevetwentyseven
At 12:27 p.m. in Texas, Shelley had this healthy snack. If I ate this much fruit my body would turn inside-out from confusion.

Othererin

Amishannie
Amish Annie in Iowa took this picture of her 130-year-old barn at 11:30 in the morning, and I realize we've gone back in time, but I just spent 30 minutes trying to get this picture on here. I have no idea why it caused any trouble. My mother just called to say hi and I was all, eff off. Have I mentioned I never should have started this task?

Anyway, this is the kind of barn Marvin and I would go into and never leave again for 12 hours. LOOK at all the stuff.

Lucyphoenixtwelvethirtytwo
Lucy went for a drive to Gramma's at 12:32 p.m. in Phoenix. She belongs to Amy.

Jess
At the same time, Jessica shopped for books in Nashville. 

Tile
Texas Kari's family was picking out tile at 1:40 p.m. She said for people to tell her which one they like best. I like the bottom-left one.

Amyonefortyseventenn
Here's Amy at 1:47 p.m. in Tennessee. She is really small.

Dot
My friend Dottie, who found that kitten I showed you who STILL NEEDS A HOME, also found a butterfly, in January in Michigan at 2:10 p.m. This would only happen to Dottie.

Target 003 Here are Faithful Readers Target Steve and his wife, Beth. They are hilarious, and apparently, Target Steve really works at Target.

Snow on the deck
Lucy posing
If people sent me more than one picture, I only used one, but Faithful Reader and ridiculous commentor Cosmo's dad sent me snow on his deck, which sounds dirty, and I liked that picture, and then of course I could not resist a photo of his dog, Lucy. They are in Maryland.

Faith
Faith sent me several laundry photos from Connecticut. Felt bad for her.

Tired all da time
Tired all da time too
Clearly, you can get away with sending me more than one picture if your dogs are involved. Faithful Reader Jill Munroe sent her tired-ass dogs resting on a Texas afternoon. Don't you think the bottom dog, so to speak, looks a little Edsel-y?

London
Nithya, at 2 p.m. in London. Who knew London would be so green right now?

  Jazzy Meanwhile, at 2:07 p.m. in Boulder, Colorado, Jazzy gives the sad-dog look in hopes of acquiring snacks from Jala.

Steve
In the meantime, in sunny Seattle (BAH!), my friend-in-real-life Steve took this picture of his kid vacuuming things. Am so calling Child Protective Services.

Annie
Annie in Florida, where I continue to be big, took this photo at 4:15, because she said children's toys are all she ever looks at. I do not know if this is a result of some sort of disorder or what.

Joann
I wish I could begin to tell you how many photos Joann sent me of her own self. I was in the parking lot at Belk, after buying Clinique Clarifying stuff, and I said I'll just check my iPhone for messages. Nine hundred thousand of them were from Joann. She slays me.

Henrylookingkitty
Apron Strings showed me her Henry-looking kitty taking what is probably a rare and unusual cat nap at 5:14 p.m. in Pennsylvania.

Diane sent us her cute daughter being all pastel and baby-y.

I got some pictures today, which I DISTINCTLY said not to do, and if you felt like someone was cursing you out just now, THEY WERE.

ArtificiallegbayviewcgrockportTX
Linda saw this while hiking in Texas.

Shelley went to Red Rocks in Colorado, and I have been there. I drank beer there. Yay.

  13. Also, you kids making the lentil soup? A tip from our wonderful Greek neighbors who own a deli up the street: A dash of white vinegar on top of the lentil soup – stir it in right before you eat it…You will NOT believe how it ups the flavor of the lentils. It’s unbelievable how yummy it tastes. I know it sounds weird, but just give it a try. It’s totally yumm.

  14. Sadie you’re probably right. It needs to be crusty with lots of air hole inside. Not doughy. But sometimes you luck out and find a Tuscan style bread that is close.
    I love lentil soup and this looks like one to try. Might I suggest a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil when you serve it? Regular old virgin won’t do. This is how my father ate his and he’d dip his hard ass stale bread in it too. Omg, I’m so hungry now.

    Steph, I just sent a message to Andy on FB. I can’t believe this! I was on the phone with him all last week since he was with my hubs on a trip. We’ll definitely have to get together at some point with Andy.
    And here’s the reason I knew that view: My oldest daughter is a film student. She was doing this big film project and needed a posh urban setting to film part of it. Sweet Andy who has known my girls since they were toddlers, offered up his beautiful place to her and her friends to film. He was so lovely. He had food for the kids and was just so gracious. I’ve seen that view about a bazillion times during the editing process, so it’s engrained in my memory.

    Laurie, I’ll try one more time.
    Lentil Soup (easy, just a lot of chopping)
    4-5 slices of bacon, sliced
    1 cup EACH finely diced carrots, celery, onions
    2-3 cloves garlic, minced
    1 tsp dried marjoram (or 2 tsp fresh)
    1 1/4 cup lentils, rinsed and picked over
    7 cups chicken stock or broth (I use Swansons reduced sodium)
    1 bay leaf, optional
    In heavy pot or dutch oven, fry bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove and set aside. Drain all but 2 T grease. Add carrots, celery, onions, garlic and marjoram. Cook 5 minutes until onions are translucent. Add lentils, stock and bay leaf. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes until lentils are tender. Add more stock if soup is too thick. Season to taste. (I normally add fresh ground pepper.) Remove the bay leaf and serve with crumbled bacon to sprinkle on top. Enjoy!

  38. My original plan was to comment of every single photo. It was going to be like a revenge thing for June yelling at us all to stop commenting. I started at the top and worked my way down. Then it occurred to me I was being even more obnoxious than usual. So I stopped.
    Even though I was dying to make fun of how Amish that hand-hewn support post is and at least mention Joann’s lederhosen dude and make note of the fact that Diane’s baby looks way more edible than her breakfast although perhaps not as edible as the lentil soup and refuse to squee at PJ’s dog or Furry’s dogs and why do so many of you have those little kick-me dogs anyhow? Except for Anita who obviously got hers from a LLBean catalog.
    By the way I think June should win the meatload for putting this whole thing together. And I no longer feel guilty about spamming the comments because we’re on page two now and seriously, who reads all the way through to page two?

    Thanks to everyone who voted on our tile. We are building a house and choosing tile is a very intimidating task. Let’s face it, paint colors can come and go, but tile stays down for a loooong time.
    The choices in the photo are for both the kitchen and the master bath. The kitchen countertops are the grayish granite in the background. I think we are going to use large marble tiles which are not in the photo, and the ones on the bottom right, which are more green/gray in real life, for the backsplashes. In the master bath we will use the big square gray tile for the floor but it will be rectangular. We will use the ones on the BOTTOM LEFT (thanks!!) for accent in the shower.
    Y’all rock!
    Anyone want to choose paint? Raise your hands high.

  45. June, thank you, you always amaze with just how much you can entertain. Today’s piece of work was just so strenuous for you. I would say take the day off tomorrow, but I would be killed for doing so. Siren, thanks for your wonderful enhancement of this thing of beauty. And my firepot is not a glorified incense burner. And you and June are both too beautiful.
