Good morning. I sort of feel a bit guilty sitting here typing a post when my little Pogo is looking up at me with starvation in his eyes. Goodness, he knows how to make me feel guilty! Well, he's just going to have to wait a little longer for breakfast.
The strangest thing happened on my way home from work this morning. I came to a set of railroad tracks, and the gates were part way down and the red lights were on. So I stopped and waited for the train. And waited. And waited. Meanwhile there was a line of cars behind me and a line of cars on the other side of the tracks. Finally, after creeping slowly up to the tracks, I hurried across and went on my way. I hope this gets fixed soon. It could be a rather dismal problem.
Further up the road, I went through an intersection where some road workers were putting up orange cones in the road, closing all but two lanes. The oncoming traffic was only using one lane, so I went forward in the other lane, and all the cars behind me followed. A little way up, one of the workers stopped me to say that I could not go this way as he had just closed the road. However, I could not turn around. So, finally the man opened the road and let us all through. The best thing to do in a situation like this is to smile sweetly and act dumb. It works!
I also want to mention that the little bird in yesterday's photos was a chickadee. The way the feathers were ruffled could be a bit confusing, but that's what made the photo so special to me.
This morning, I have another version of last Friday's photo art that I've done for Mandarin Orange Monday. This time I used Bonnie's Dusty Rose Bokeh texture on the photo. The actual color of the bottle is dark orange. The little glass jar is a jelly jar.
Today, Su and I are posting Parts 3 & 4 of our August collab kit "Vintage Garden". Here's my preview and your download links.
When you've finished downloading, do stop by Su's web site and pick up her parts. If they're not already up, be patient and go back again later. I sometimes post early because I either post before I leave work to come home, or as soon as I get home. Here is Su's preview. Let me tell you, her parts are just chock full of goodies.
Now I think I'd better head for the kitchen and whip up some breakfast before Pogo has my leg completely scratched off. He's been busy running back and forth between me and the refrigerator and then he comes to scratch my leg to get my attention. I'm guessing that maybe he's hungry. Good guess, huh? Okay, I'm gone. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
