Parts 3 & 4 "Summer Fun"

Good morning.  Today is supposed to near 90 F, with thunder storms later today.  Well, that sounds a bit cooler from the past few days, so it might be a nice break for us.  Well, most of the my itch had left yesterday, so it was a very comfortable day for me (other than the heat). 

I did not get to visit the animal shelter yesterday because daughter in law did not get here until it was too late in the afternoon.  I did not want to battle with rush hour traffic in this heat.  After lunch today, Deanne and Eddie will go with me to visit the fur baby rescue shelter.

Last night, Wayne came by and hooked up desktop PC with Norton, and took care of the problems with my laptop.  Yeah!!!!  Then, when it was near darkness outside, one of the dwarfs and I went to visit my granddaughter, Jasmine, to practice some night portraiture. 

Well, let me tell you what fun we had.  Not only is Jazzy beautiful, but she makes a great model.  Jazzy girl, I love you!  I had such a time trying to pick out just one photo for the assignment on night portrait, that I ended out picking out several photos and making two layouts.  All the photos are taken with candlelight after dark (outside on the front porch) except for the middle photo on the second layout.  That one was taken with "Night Mode" which fires the flash.

I do believe she and I will have to do this more often.  I have to so much to learn, and a great model certainly does make it ever so enjoyable.   Hmmm, ever think of professional modeling, Jazzy?

The only bad feature was the pesky, constantly biting mosquitos.  I did not count on them being out in such force.  Needless to say, I went home with a few mosquito bites that I did not have when I left home earlier.  I did take my medicine, but today I have a few new (not hazardess) itches to deal with.

I did promise to post my Parts 3 & 4 of "Summer Fun" this morning. So here they are, and do enjoy.

And here your download links:

I won't have Su's previews until a bit later this morning, so I will post that tomorrow.  Her computer woes seem to  have been fixed now, and she says that she will be able to post later this morning on her blog.  So do stop by there a little this morning and pick up her parts.  Don't forget to take a moment to say thank you.

One more bit of "what else can happen?" news.  I was enjoying using my laptop late last night, and stopped for a few minutes to get a bottle of water.  When I tried to get back online, guess what?  I had no internet!!!  I checked my router & modem equipment, but could not figure out the problem.  So I grabbed the phone (land line) to call the cable company.  YUP!  No phone, either!!

Now I had to take my "smart phone" outdoors (after midnight) to call the cable company and report my outage.  When I finally got through, they said that there had just been an outage in my area, and that it would be fixed shortly or at least by morning.  Whew!  This made me feel so much better.  And when I got up this morning at 4:45 am, all was well again.

Now I have a few things to do around here so that my afternoon will be free for my trip to the shelter.  I'm actually getting a bit excited.  Nothing like a lick and a wagging tail to make you feel good!  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Edna, Jazzy is one gorgeous young lady and the candlelight photos are incredible! Fantastic layouts! Although she has a beautiful smile, I am captivated by the far right photo in layout 1.

It's almost sad how abruptly it throws us off kilter when there is an outage of our communication devices, isn't it? Although, without internet we wouldn't have met or share with each other at all. SO let me change my statement; it's AWFUL when our communications devices have interruptions in our life line to the rest of our world! :)

Thank you for parts 3 & 4 of this month's kit. I an envisioning layouts already. Su is on my reader and I'll visit her when she posts too.

Have a wonderful day and try not to scratch the skeeter bites too much!

Hugs, Nani

Great pics with a fantastic model ! I love night pics, specially with candle light as the colours are so warm in the pics and even facial features look less harsh. Have fun browsing the doggy shelter :)

Jazzy is a really beautiful girl, and yes, she could go for a model!
Lovely photos you have made. Like the candlelight effect!
Oh, am am getting almost as much excited as you about your visit to the shelter.
Would this be the day you will find another sweet companion???
Lots of luck!
Have a wonderful day!

Beautiful photos of your granddaughter. Thanks for the idea.....I'll have to take some of Katie in the candlelight.

Hope you had some luck at the animal shelter.

What did we ever do before computers? I know I feel lost when the internet goes out. It's as if I need it to turn the washing machine on, or do the dusting or even to vacuum the floor. Having no internet is like having no electricity.

I missed a day so I am commenting on two posts. Where to begin ... well, I think Jazzy is a great place to start. She is adorable and I love her smile ... but, like others, I think the soft, subdued expressions in the first layout captures her innocence ... she is really lovely and you did a really good job on your night photos.

And, I loved your trip to the shelter. I have a hard time in shelters, my heart breaks over and over because I can't be the one to help each and every little critter that needs some lovin'. I love your little dog ... and I will say a prayer that the surgery takes and she has a wonderful life ahead of her , hopefully with you. I do so enjoy my visits to your blog Edna ... so glad I found you. Have a wonderful day ...
