Weekend happenings

This is the beautiful sunset I saw while driving home the other night. I wish I would have had my good camera because it was amazing. I took the picture with my phone.

Here are some random things I saw this past weekend.

1. The car being towed from the fatal crash right in front of my apartments.

2. A truck with rolling sign advertisements parked on the side of the road instead of driving up and down the highway. (I guess gas prices...)

3. Two teenage boys (with direction from their mom) got their eyebrows waxed. (At my nail place)

4. A van pulled up in the middle of the restaurant parking lot to load their group. I waited 10 minutes, with cars backing up behind me before they moved. (They were getting in, walking around to the other side, looking in as if they were looking at something on the seat, but not actually getting into the van, then finally, they were all inside the van....but not moving). I was patient for about the first 8 minutes, then I tapped the horn to let them know, we were still behind them and still waiting for their rude behinds to move!

5. A beautiful sunset on the way home.

6. A butterfly on a dog's leg.

Happy Monday! Have a great week everyone.

LeperColony said...

What/Where is Nannbugg?

Lee Ann said...

T ~ Wow, that was fast...I just posted. I haven't even republished yet.
Thank you, you are sweet. I have actually thought I would like to take photography classes.

Lee Ann said...

Lepercolony ~ Hey! Nice to see you over here.
The Castle is here in Birmingham.
I hope to see you here more often.

The Appalachianist said...

That is a pretty sunset, Lee Ann. The sunsets can be pretty here, but, not like the ones back home.

Phain said...

#3 scared me...

Lee Ann said...

App ~ Hey! So glad to see you.
I think you are having an incredible experience. I honestly could not do it myself. Be safe and please stay in touch.
~hugs to you

le chat ~ I know, that one freaked me out too. I couldn't help but laugh (giggle) after they left!

coach said...

what a variety of seemingly ordinary observations but I'd say incredible .
Nice job Lee Ann . Bye , I have to wax my eyebrows now .

The Husband said...

did those teenage boys have a uni-brow?

DaMasta said...

wow. if that's your camera phone, i'm curious to know what kind of phone you have. i thought mine was good, but that pic is just spectacular. wow. oh and butterflies anywhere are amazing huh?

Lee Ann said...

Coach ~ Thank you. Oh, if you do that, can I watch! I wasn't able to watch those boys, but I could hear them!

Carl ~ Well, they may have, but from the distance I was sitting, I did not notice one!

Damasta ~ Hey! Oh thank you.
It is a pretty good camera on the phone. I love butterflies too. So good to see you!

Fred said...

I've noticed that some of the boys at school get their eyebrows waxed. And, some of them have matching lines through them, kind of like a skid mark.

Fred said...

You obviously have a wonderful eye (or two). To see the things you saw this weekend, really see them, takes seeing with your heart.

And the sunset is gorgeous. Amazing what you got from your cell phone.

I do believe you found some "good" this weekend.

Instantiable said...

No pic of the butterfly on the dog's leg though? =)

Nice sunset.

And if you read my comic, feel free to let me know which topic you'd like to see next. If you don't, then ignore this paragraph.

Instantiable said...

...Also, now I kind of want to get my eyebrows waxed... weird.

Lee Ann said...

Fred ~ Is that a new fad....for teenage boys to get their eyebrows waxed? I think I have seen the skid mark thing you are talking about. Hmmmm....

Fred ~ Thank you, that is so kind of you to say. Coming from you, who I know to be insightful, I take that as a great compliment.
I agree, I did find some good this weekend.
Always glad to see you over here.

Instantiable ~ Ok, I will come by after I get home this afternoon.
Let me know if you have your eyebrows done! ;)

MyUtopia said...

Great picture. Hard to imagine teen-age boys getting their eyebrows waxed

Jason said...

Your camera phone works better than mine. Dammit! I have to wait until next year to upgrade. Good picture though. I think you should take more, I bet you'd be great at it.

truckdriver_sefl said...

What and awesome sunset Lee Ann!!

Gyrobo said...

That is a great sunset.

This week will certainly be good for everyone. I'm looking forward to that new show, the one about that town out in the middle of nowhere, where everyone is a super-secret government scientist.


Lee Ann said...

My Utopia ~ Thanks! I know, it hit me a little strangely.

Jason ~ Thank you so much. The phone's camera does work nicely. It takes short videos too!

Trucker ~ Thank you Trucker, have a great week.

Gyro ~ Thank you. Is that a real show? If so, it sounds like it will be good.

Saur♥Kraut said...

Boys getting their eyebrows waxed... kinda creepy, though I know one that has to do it or he looks like a caveman.

Killdare said...

I think we all agree, you should take more pictures. It can also be a good form of therapy. At least that's what I've learned.

...and thanks, guess I should leave my email in my profile...

hotboy said...

I wonder if those teenage boys would admit such a thing to their pals. Mocking your pals in the main teenage sport in Scotland! Hotboy

C said...

a butterfly on a dog's leg. That was very random and odd.

Shannon said...

I second what C said...that was very different and unique ....usually a dog would sniff it and the little butterfly would fly off into the sunset, probably a sunset like yours!

Have a great week Lee Ann!

Bathroom Hippo said...

The Butterfly will kill us all!

Hey Lee Ann...I'll finish buying your stock this week. Had to sell today...but will buy tomo.'re in the movie I just made...I'll post it Thursday.

Henri Banks said...

Looooove that sky Pic of yours !!!!

Otis said...

"See the dog and butterfly
Up in the air he like to fly
Dog and butterfly..."

Do you know this?

Becky said...

It was a good weekend for everyone I think, just amazing stuff happened to me too.

Lee Ann said...

Saur ~ Well, I agree! These boys didn't look like cavemen when they first came in, but they looked a wee bit different going out! :)

Killdare ~ Thank you. I think you could be right about the therapy.
Oh, thank you for coming over. Let me know if you leave an email address.

Hotboy ~ Haha, I doubt they can hide it from what I saw!

Lee Ann said...

C ~ I know. I wondered who would be the first to comment on that. It was quite beautiful.

Shannon ~ Haha, I know. The beautiful butterfly didn't hang out too long. The dog did not notice, but got up to move and the butterfly flew away.

Hippo ~ I have noticed all the activity. It looks like fun. Oh, the movie on Thursday? You are so sweet, I can't wait.

Lee Ann said...

Henri ~ Thank you sweet Henri!

Otis ~ Well I stumbled upon your secret place
Safe in the trees you had tears on your face
Wrestling with your desires frozen strangers
Stealing your fires. The message hit my mind
Only words that I could find

See the dog and butterfly
Up in the air he like to fly
Dog and butterfly below she had to try
She roll back down to the warm soft ground
Laughing to the sky, up to the sky
Dog and butterfly

Becky ~ Oh, I am so glad. Weekends are just too short, aren't they?

jamwall said...

if i misbehaved as a child, my dad would fly into a rage and take me to the pedicure place.

my toes were fantastic, all the kids in 3rd grade were jealous.

Spinning Girl said...

wow, that is simply stunning. glad you captured it!

robmcj said...

A good reminder of the joys of observation.

Stunning photo Lee Ann, hard to imagine how it could be better. You must have a good phonecam.

Hotboy is right about Mocking being the main sport in Scotland, and not just for teenagers. Terrible place. Tourists are immune, so don't be put off visiting.

Lee Ann said...

Jams ~ You have me laughing all night!

SG ~ Thank you. Sunsets are one of my favorite things.

Rob ~ Yes, the phone camera is a good one.
Oh, when I come to Scotland, I will call you and Hotboy to give me the tour!

Phats said...

eyebrows waxed haha nice!

Answering your questions.
Yes I have always lived in IN.
I was a college cheerleader had to tumble for that, required was a standing back, so it was easy to teach it :)

have a good one

Mone said...

That sunset picture is so great, I really love it!

Rrramone said...

Wow, what a full weekend. :-)

jiggs said...

stupid rude behinds!

butterfly on a dog's leg!

robmcj said...


Lee Ann said...

Phats ~ That is cool! I have never been to IN!
Thank you, you too.

Mone ~ Thank you, very nice to see you. I hope you will come by more often.

rrramone ~ Oh, so nice to see you too! I you will come visit here more often too.

Jiggs ~ I know, so random, right!

Rob ~ YAY! ;)
