Sleeping Beauty Is Waking Up

July 16, 2010

Today, it's good afternoon. I've slept so much since Monday morning that I could not sleep last night. Instead, I scrapped a bit, and fell asleep around 6 am this morning. I suppose it will take a day or so to get back to my norm.

Before I forget, my friend Yvonne is going on vacation for a week, and I want to wish her a relaxing fun-filled week. Hope it's a good week for you my friend.

The layout I worked on last night features my youngest grandson, Kevin, better known in the world of baseball as The Koolaid Kid." He's a fantastic pitcher, and can give the ball a really mean smack when it's his turn at bat. When he got ready to wind up on the pitcher's mound, I followed him all the way through the pitch with my camera, and used the photos to make this layout. Pretty cool, huh? Can you tell how proud I am of this fantastic little guy?

As I sit here, I see a bit of a breeze through my living room window. Dare I hope that it means a bit of cooling off and a speck of wet stuff for us? I would love to go outside in my nightie and dance around in the rain right about now. Unfortunately, the neighbors would see to it that I was carted off to a funny farm before Moo could get back home to save me from them. Hmmm, but it was a beautiful thought!!

How about a couple more pictures from the "Lion King?" I loved the aerial acts, and these two photos feature the lions. Hope you like them. They were so exciting to watch.

Did I tell you that last week I treated myself, and ordered another rental lens? Oh yes I did. I've been wanting to try Tamron's newest lens, the 18-270mm DII VC, ever since it came out last year. So I rented it, and it arrived this past Monday.

You got it!! I haven't even been able to go out and play with it, and I have to send it back in just a few more days. What did I do to deserve this, I ask? I can almost hear Mr. B. whispering to me "So just buy it Baby if that's the one you want." Did I mention that he spoiled me a lot? Yes, he did! Well, in all fairness, first I have to get out next week and try this lovely lens to see what it can do. I hope it's all I'm expecting because it's just the right weight for me to handle with my camera.

Okay, that's enough babble for today. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a marvelous day.
