Good Morning, even though it is a bit gray at the moment, You're here and I'm here so it's definitely a good morning. Oh boy, I am learning to love my new laptop. At least so far. Even though I have the big black monster PC sitting on my desk, I go into laptop withdrawal when it is not working. I guess a lot of us are in that same boat, huh?
Do any of you have this problem with your pets? When Miss Tootsie is nervous, upset, anxious or in pain she chews on one of her front legs. Lately she has been doing this a lot and her little leg is quite messy. Last night, Moo went to the drugstore and bought us some of that gauze bandaging that sticks to itself. I put that on Tootsie's leg, and so far it has been working pretty good. Now I just have to figure out the reason behind why she has been doing this.
Yesterday while at work, I had a chance to try out my zoom lens. Way off in the backyard, at the very top of some trees, there is a large nest. It is empty, and with the all the leaves falling, it is easy to see. I tried to get a good photo of it (from indoors - through the window) but the wind was blowing and the trees kept swaying.
I picked out the photo that was the least bit blurry, and cropped it to share with you. I will also show you the original photo so that you can see where the nest is. Know any birds looking for a seasonal home to rent? From now till Spring, and it's cheap!!
This photo was taken "hand held" and would obviously be much better had I used a tripod. However, I don't carry a tripod around with me while I am at work. BUT!!! That is next on my list - to get me a new tripod. I do have one, but it is not sturdy enough for my camera. After that, I will attempt to make a nature photo book.
I also tried to take a little movie with my new camera. It was just a minute long, but not so easy to play on the computer because of the mov. format. I just have to figure out how to convert it to avi. format. Or maybe I don't, I will have to study up on this. I ordered me a book to help me understand this particular camera better.
I also ordered two books on learning Windows 7. Vista may have beaten me up pretty bad, but Windows 7 won't get the chance. They have these wonderful books called "Simplified" and "Teach Yourself Visually" for just about everything. I am a "show and learn" person, so these books are fantastic.
Enough babble for today! I have a freebie mini kit for you called "September Rain." This was made for the September color challenge. I hope you can use it. Now it's time for me to make another cup of coffee and start the day. Y'all have a wonderful day now.
Hugs, Edna B.
