Today, it's good afternoon. For some reason, sleep escaped me most of the night. This morning, I was finally able to fall asleep for a few hours. I will have to talk to the doctor about this when I see him next week.
Janet was here yesterday afternoon and we decided to go window shopping at Staples. This was fun because we were checking out the new laptops, external drives, etc. No, no, no, not for me. Janet might be getting a new laptop and maybe Photoshop Elements. I think this is just wonderful.
When we left Staples, we continued on to Home Depot's Garden Department. Oh my, they had so many beautiful plants and of course, I wanted them all. Especially the pink Butterfly Bush, and more Rose of Sharon. I was very good, and we just looked. Janet remined me that this comng weekend is tax free shopping here in Massachusetts.
I forgot that I will have not one, but two small doggies with me, so I'm not sure how much shopping I will be able to do this weekend. I may just go back and get my plants tomorrow. We'll see.
Tomorrow's theme for Friday Photo Art is our own interpretation of "gift". Yesterday I had taken a rather pretty photo of the sky at daybreak, and to me something like this is really a gift. So I cropped the photo and added the "Never Seen Before" texture from Bonnie at PDPA. I also took the flying geese out of a photo at the park, and placed them in this beautiful new sky. Here's my result.
A couple days ago while I was photographing some of the flowers on the other side of my house, I spotted a brand new fairy village down inside the grass. There were several new homes scattered about,
and a lovely new Fairy Resort Spa. Oh, I would love to see this when all the lights are turned on at night and the fairies are dancing about.
In case you're wondering, I'm still working on my first cup of coffee. Nothing more. Honest! I just see a lot of beauty in Nature. These little surprises were tucked into grass that is only about three inches tall. If I hadn't looked down, I'd have missed them.
Pogo is still exploring and settling in nicely, and I'm pretty sure he's happy with his new home. I know he loves his new diet. Although, why wouldn't he? It's assorted gourmet doggie foods with a mix of select people foods. He also loves meeting new people, and is being a lot more playful.
I'll have to start using the video on my camera and take some short movies. Gosh, I just never run out of new things to do. (Such a problem, huh?) I also want to check back with the camera club that I wrote to earlier in the summer. They will be starting up in just a few weeks and Janet and I would like to join.
Now I must get a move on and stuff this adorable little body into some clothes. Dee Dee is coming by soon with Sassy and I want to at least finish washing the dishes and pick up a few things. So till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
