A Golden Orange Butterfly!

July 31, 2012

Today is the last day in July, and it's been quite a month.  Tomorrow as we usher in the new month, I'm hoping that life will settle down a bit; and we can sit back and enjoy the rest of summer. 

With all the excitement lately, I forgot to post my photo for Mandarin Orange Monday.   Last week at work, I went out to the backyard in hopes of getting some new photos of dragonflies.  In one spot, I saw a glimmer or orange and took a few photos.  I  really did not know what the orange was as it was a distance away, but then that's how I get some  really nice photos.

Once I had a chance to look at the photos on my laptop, I was pleasantly surprised.  The orange glow turned out to be a beautiful dragonfly.   The photo wasn't as clear as I would like, but it had a soft, mystical glow about it.  I used a frame and style from Brenda's Scrap Design.

There are some awesome photos posted at Mandarin Orange Monday, so click on the link to have a look.  And, if you like photography, and the color orange, do join in the fun.

Yesterday, Dee Dee, Eddie and Jasmine stopped by to visit with Pogo.  Well, now Pogo was in his element.  He just loves people, and was busy going from one to another to collect all the pats and hugs that he could.  He especially loves to play with squeaky toys, but only while they are squeaking.  Once they stop making any noise, he loses interest. 

Later, Pogo and I went shopping at Petco.  I was disappointed that there were no small tee shirts, but we did buy a new harness, collar and leash.  We also bought a little red squeaky chcken toy, but so far Pogo has shown it very little interest.

The foster mother, where Pogo was living, sent me this photo that she took with her phone of me and Pogo the day I got him.   You can see just how tiny this little guy is.

My new blog book came in the mail yesterday.  I can't say enough about how great these books are.  It's sort of like leaving behind a journal complete with photos. 

Tonight is a work night, so I think I'll keep this an easy day with a nap later on.  That should make Mr. Pogo very happy.  He's a champion napper.  Actually, he's curled up beside me right now, sound asleep.  Hmmmm, maybe we'll do the nap thing now instead of later.  On that note, I'll leave.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Edna B.
