It's sunny this morning, and currently about 50 degrees F. The weatherman says that today's temp will hit about 64 degrees. That will be nice because Tootsie and I have a few errands to do today.
First errand this morning will be to pick up my new PC at Staples. Boy oh boy, will I ever be glad to get Vista out of my life. It has been a craw in my neck since day one. I have to say that when Microsoft puts out a bad product, it is a REALLY BAD product. That's what Vista has been. I know that a lot of folks might like their Vista, but it has never given me a good day. I finally stopped using my PC unless I absolutely had to.
I also want to get outside and start cleaning out my gardens. There are lots of plants coming up and I need to make a list of what I have to buy for this year's planting. I don't think my Hibiscus plant made it through the winter, but I'm hoping that my Rose of Sharon made it through. I would like to plant more of the Rose of Sharon.
Yesterday, I shared a gorgeous bird photo that my friend Mary Ann sent me, and today I have two more of her bird photos to share. I've seen a Baltimore Oriole on a couple of occasions, but I've never been able to photograph one.
This next bird is a Pyrrhuloxia, otherwise known as a Desert Cardinal, and is found in the American Southwest and Northern Mexico. I believe this one is a male.
Mary Ann, this is just fabulous! You're raising the bar for me with this photograph. One can almost count the hairs on this beautiful bird. Great job my friend!
For those of you who are new to my blog, you can click on any photo posted and a new window will come up with larger images.
Today, I'm learning my way around this new laptop. It's really quite nice, except for the pesky fingerprint thingy that keeps popping up and disrupting whatever I am working on. I'll have to find the user manual and learn how to use the fingerprint for my passwords. Maybe then it will stop pestering me.
Now I need to get busy here and start my day. Janet will be coming by later, so I also have to decide what to make for supper. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a beautiful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
