Always Looking For New Toys

June 11, 2010

What a simply gorgeous day it is today. I'm a bit late with my post because I had to go out to do some errands and enjoy some of this beautiful weather. I have been procrastinating all week long about going out to do errands, but today I finally did it. About the only thing I forgot to pick up was the carton of birdie snacks. But then, what a great reason to go out again tomorrow.

We have some new birds here at our feeders. The red-bellied woodpeckers and baby European starlings. ( I think that's they are. I'm looking them up in my books.) We also have the little downy woodpeckers and a whole assortment of beautiful birds. Of course, that also means that every now and then, they use our cars for potty spots. But a little water takes care of that!

I also want to go through my flower catalogues to see if I can find some pretty poppies to plant. Kyra has the prettiest pink poppies in her garden, and now I am a tad bit jealous. Poppies are just so beautiful.

Today, I have two lovely photos to share with you. One taken by my daughter in law, Janet. She is becoming quite good with her camera. These Canterbury Bells are just gorgeous.

The next photo is from my friend Mary Ann. She just got a great new Canon, and was trying it out on this beautiful white peony. What a great shot!!
I'm also looking around at a lot of small point and shoot cameras. I want one to carry in my purse so that I don't lose a lot of great shots. My Canon is a bit big to carry around all the time. Although I usually do have it with me, it's not always possible to get it out quick enough to get the shot. Plus, the point and shoot is a lot lighter to carry and fits right in my purse or pocket.

I know, I know, I'm a greedy little kid. But I'm at that age that I feel it's okay to be a little greedy about some things. I don't buy a lot of make up and clothes and such, instead I spend money on my hobbies. My computer and my camera. As for my clothes, I probably look like a ragamuffin, but when it comes to my camera it's top drawer all the way.

At the store today, I found me some monitor wipes. I never knew they had such a product, but it is really a godsend. For some reason, the computer monitors, television screens and camera viewers always seem to pick up dirt and fingerprints. I usually just use a soft unscented, unlotioned tissue to wipe them so that I don't ruin them. Now I can really clean them with these wipes.

That's about all my news for today. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a funtabulous day.
