Finally, The Sun Is Shining!

October 16, 2011

The sun is shining this morning, but it's quite breezy outside.  Yesterday wasn't such a good planting day, so we will go out in a little while and get the bulbs in the ground while the sun is still shining.  I didn't get my new Photoshop installed yesterday either.  After reading the instructions for uninstalling and de-activating, I decided it would be best to call Wayne and have him do it for me.  He will come by Tuesday.  While he is here, he will show me once more how to move my programs from DVR to DVD.

I worked on the November collab kit for a while, did a couple of jigsaw puzzles on my laptop and then had a nice long nap.  After supper, Tootsie and I crawled back into bed to watch some TV and I promptly fell asleep.  I think it's my cold that makes me tired, or maybe the cold medicine.  I'm not complaining though because the sleep felt good.

I'm watching "Top Chef Just Desserts" on TV, and it's really quite comical.  The contestants have to bake pies - with only one hand.  The other hand has to stay behind them.  It's really quite interesting to see how ingenius some people are.  Ever try opening a bottle of water or juice with only one hand?  Or maybe try cutting fruit for the filling?   Definitely a fun challenge!

On my way to work last Tuesday night, the sky was filled with dark clouds and weird patterns.  When I stopped at Duncan Donuts to get my coffee, I pulled over to take a photograph.  Isn't this interesting?

Friday at work, it was raining.  This makes for some very pretty photos.  I know I've photographed this particular hibiscus plant quite often, but it is so pretty with raindrops all over it.  A lot of the drops of water have rolled down into the center of the flower making a little pool.

Another interesting item was the handle on the recycle container.   The barrel part is dark blue and the cover is yellow.   The drops of rainwater on the underside of the handle relected both colors.  Every other drop was dark blue with bits of yellow, and the next drop would be yellow and white. 

That's about it for today.  Now I'm off to get dressed and outside to plant some iris bulbs.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

You are not particularly fond of rain, (like me) but on the other hand your are as excited as a little child when it has rained, cause you can make some lovely photos of things with raindrops LOL! Wouldn;t it be interesting to see a real closeup of the waterdrops on the bin's handle? Curious what we might see in it!
Have fun planting your bulbs!

I saw some lovely autumn crocus at the von Trapp lodge on our trip. they had them planted among the hostas and it looked like the hostas had an exotic bloom. Need to add some of those.
