Good morning. It's not quite daylight yet. Tootsie and I awoke rather early this morning, so we decided to stay up. Of course, we'll probably need a little nap later.
I peeked outside, and it's so quiet. Even the birds are asleep. Speaking of birds, I can hear them singing and calling all day long here, but I don't see them. The closest I've come to seeing a bird for more than a couple of seconds was when a cardinal perched on a fence for just a moment. I couldn't get very close, but I did get one photo.
Yesterday, Tootsie and I found us a flea market, and walked around for about an hour and a half. Did I find any goodies? Of course! I found some really pretty hair bows for my daughter Laura Jean, and a coffee mug for my morning coffee. There is dishware here but I'm not crazy about drinking my coffee out of dainty cups. I like a mug.
I also found some candy called "Juicy Twists". They are the same as Twizzlers, but are made with orange juice. They're pretty good, but I doubt if I'll run back and buy another bag. I also found another birthday gift, as well as a "Just because I love you" gift.
By the time we got home, I was totally worn out. We sat out on the porch and enjoyed a leisurely lunch. I got caught up on some email, and did a bit of blog reading. Then it was time to grab the camera and go for a walk. An hour later, we were back home and in for the day. My clothes aren't flapping in the wind, so I don't think all this walking is making me very thin.
Last night I got some gorgeous shots as it was getting dark. I put them into Photoshop to crop them, and somewhere between then and now those photos got corrupted. Don't ask me how because I can't explain it. I'm just hoping that I get another chance to take those photos again tonight.
Here is a mid afternoon photo of the sky as some dark clouds passed on by. The rays are so soft.
I have another rather pretty photo of palm trees to share. My friend Nani loves palm trees, so this one is for her.
Next, I have a photo of the flowering hedge that grows here. My hedge back home is plain ole green. This one has beautiful pink flowers all through it.
And here is a close up of these beautiful little pink flowers. I would love to have these hedges in my yard back home.
There's really not much more news yet, it's too early in the day. I'm thinking that maybe we'll do a bit of laundry today. Maybe we'll go to the supermarket while it's still cool. On that note, I think I'll get dressed and get started on this beautiful new day. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
