The sun is shining, and there is still plenty of the white stuff on the ground. It's 23 degrees F, working it's way up to 34. Wow! A winter heat wave! There is a very large desert in China that is covered in snow. No kidding!
I'm watching the weather channel (what else?). I learn a lot of very interesting things from watching this channel. Like, do you know where the largest desert is located? I didn't, but now I do. It's the continent of Antarctica, which is the world's driest place. The Sahara is the largest hot desert.
Learning has always fascinated me. I've had a love affair with books and reading since I was big enough to pick up a book. During the war (WWII), when I was a little girl, we didn't have much money so my folks would shop rummage sales for a lot of our things. You could buy a whole box of books for very short change. Every trip to a sale brought me a new box of books. Except for my sweetheart, the handsome little boy living across the street, books were my best friends.
This brings me the topic for Photo Art Friday. We are to make a piece of photo art that features a word to inspire or guide us through this new year. After much thought, I've chosen the work "Seek". I am so aware of the beauty all around us, and I want to be able to capture as much of it as I can with my camera. I want to learn more about all this wonderful technology that we have. I just want to keep on learning.
I've just erased all the info pertaining to my photo art for today. When I am able to post photos, I'll re-post the info. For some reason, I cannot upload any photos to my blog. Please bear with me while I check on this problem.
SORRY FOLKS, NO PHOTOS TODAY. I just took a look at Blogger's help posts, and it seems that I'm not alone with this problem. There are quite a lot of folks looking to Blogger to fix this problem. There is no "browse" box for us to upload our photos. I added my inquiry to the list, and now I will just have to wait and see what happens. If and when the problem gets fixed, I'll get caught up with my photos.
Well, I think I'll just have me another cup of coffee and try to unravel my rather annoyed nerves. I used to be so good when problems arose, but sad to say, I'm not so patient any more. I'm going to play with Pogo and maybe do some laundry. That seems to have a soothing effect on me. lol. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
