Pictures over the Recent Few Weeks

On Monday the 22nd (?) I took pictures in the Kleinau again (Lightbulb), and here are just a couple of my favorites!

Checking out a Prism

Talking to Art, the 6ft imaginary frog.

On the Davis & Elkins College campus, walking across the bridge to the library...

B'day gifts for the nieces, bought from Etsy!

Pictures from August...

I'm obviously behind, but here're a few of the pictures I took during the month of August. Enjoy!
Moving from Illinois to West Virginia--Dr.Blueberry drive the Budget truck, and I drove his car behind him the whole way...boring!

And, yet, when we arrived in WV, this is what we found---beautiful! The bottom half of the house in the back is built into the mountain, and the front yard is short (picture below) with a mountain on the other side of the road.

A (non-vegan) chocolate eclair, not eaten by me, but by my friend Satoshi. Doesn't it look delish!?

I stayed at a friend's place for a couple of weeks, and the day I mowed the lawn, I looked out and saw this adorable little friend hanging out. He clearly liked the smell of fresh grass also!

Next to the Recycling Center in town...I was only slightly freaked out, for just a brief moment!

As I cleaned my office in Carbondale, I came across this little gem. My colleague Chris had drawn it out during the Fall 2010 semester as part of a conversation about ethical eating. I love this picture so much!

A picture perfect tree on the Davis and Elkins College campus.

Dr.Blueberry's new office is on the third floor, maybe the 4th or 5th window from left...

Isn't the Davis and Elkins College campus gorgeous?! Such character!

A beverage in town was necessary on this day....this Yuengling was delightful!
