I spent some time in Pennsylvania recently.

I was there to say good-bye to my Uncle Johnny, who lost his struggle with MS.  I guess you could say I was in a rather melancholy mood during my visit, and I spent an afternoon wandering around my parents’ house taking picture of things.  There’s no real theme to these pictures other than my melancholia, but… here they are.

my brother's old baby blanket, which his 4 month old son now uses


moM's blue ball in the back yard


my great grandmother's button jar


one sad, lonely little flower petal


Nina's uncle Fraidy Cat, who will be retiring to our place in DC at the end of the summer




A lightswitch cover my moM painted a zillion years ago


daD's Navy memorabilia

And the piece-de-resistance (…or however you spell that)…

an egg. in a pepper. on the grill.


The egg thing was more about nom-ancholia than melancholia, I think.  =)
