Good morning. Well, this is day two of feeling a bit more human. Sad to say, the sky was all clouds, so there was no moon to entice me outside with my camera at 3 a.m. Darn! I was so hoping for another "moon shoot".
On a tasty note, Saturday morning's cup of coffee tasted like swamp water. One sip and I dumped the whole cup out. Then I made a pitcher of orange juice (frozen concentrate). I really hate to tell you what this tasted like. Again, one gulp and down the drain with the rest.
Sunday morning's coffee tasted a tad bit better. Not quite swampy, more like dirty dish water. Yuk!! I drank about a third of it before dumping it out. Thank goodness my cereal tasted better. Not quite as good as I would have liked, but at least edible.
Before I tried the orange juice again, I asked Joe to try it first. He said it tasted pretty good, so I gave it another try. I struggled with it, but I did finally finish the whole glassful. The good news is that this morning's cup of coffee is drinkable. It almost tastes like coffee. I may even have a second cup later this morning.
You can tell that I'm feeling a bit better this morning, because I've just spent an hour playing on my laptop. Today is Mandarin Orange Monday. I used a photo of my Christmas Cactus bloom, separated the bloom from the background, applied a texture overlay from H.G. Designs and a gradient and several blending modes in Photoshop. Next I used a few of the elements from one of Kyra's kits "Without A Sound". So, this is my contribution to M.O.M.
As promised, here are some photos of yesterday morning's (3 a.m.) moon. This first shot is the moon once some of the clouds moved on by. The second photo is a close up of this shot.
This photo is how the moon looked as I stood in my driveway looking upwards. You can see part of one of the tree branches and a corner of my roof.
This is a close-up shot that I thought was quite pretty. The moon was moving and more clouds were going by, making the moon visible near the tips of the top branches on one of my trees.
When I came back in the house from taking these photos, my little fellow was curled up in his bed waiting for me. Dang it all, he's just a cutie pie!!
Okay, that's enough for this morning. I still have a bit of blog reading to do, not to mention catching up with the tons of email that are waiting for me to go through. So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe, and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
