Good morning. I was kind of hoping to get up this morning and magically see the ground dry and the sun shining, but no can do. It could be worse though, the rain could be pouring down. Instead it's a light rain so I guess I'll survive. Gosh, I'm sounding more and more like a wimp!
Is wimpiness (I think that's a word) another of the "golden" perks? I can remember my younger days when I could take on the whole world. Well, I couldn't really but I sure did try. Life threw me so many mountains to climb that when things ran smooth it just didn't feel right. Now, the smallest things make my little boots shake.
Want to know the one thing I've always been afraid of? I don't know why, and I can't explain, but I don't like windows that are dark black on the outside. They really creep me out and make me very uneasy. I have to do a lot of fancy talking to myself in order to get along alone in a room with uncovered dark windows.
Growing up, I used to duke it out in the boxing ring with the biggest baddest kids at the Police Boys and Girls Club. Today, a bunch of ants on my doorstep puts me in a ditzy frenzy and sends me running for a can of ant spray. God forbid I should step on any of the ants and bring them in the house on the bottom of my shoe. See what I mean? Wimp!!! (But I'm a nice wimp.)
Last night I played around in Photoshop for a while trying to make photo art out of a photo of a rhododendron. I used several of my photos, and several of PS's blending modes and came up with this.
The verse I used is from a poem "Spring" by Joyce Kilmer. (I found it on Google) So I'll never be a Monet, but at least it's fun trying. Actually, it's relaxing. You start out at 8:30 with a photo, and the next time you look at the clock it's almost midnight. Tonight I will play with it some more and see about turning it into a pretty QP for you.
In a little while, I have an appointment at the nail salon, so I think I'll take my camera and try to get some more neat raindrop photos. That's one way to validate all this wet stuff. Did I tell you that I was also a little bit nuts? lol. Till tomorrow folks, Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
