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.
