I Love This Indian Summer Weather

November 8, 2011

I'm looking out my window, and I see that we have another gorgeous Fall day.  Oh yes, I like it!!  I believe tomorrow is supposed to be nice too.  I'm hoping to get out for a while today or tomorrow and get some new photos while this gorgeous weather is with us. 

My little Tootsie is hanging in there.  Her walking isn't so steady, but she tries really hard.  Sometimes she forgets and tries to run to me and ends up sliding across the floor instead.  So I walk a little slower to make it easier for her. 

Well, my news for today is BIG!  I just finished putting together and uploading my photos, and ordering my 2012 calendar!  It only took me two months to decide which photos to include and to get them all sized to fit the calendar.  I finally ended up calling Vista and asking a sales rep to get info from their graphics department about the correct size for the cover photo.  (This was not listed on the site.)  The folks at Vista were very helpful indeed. 

Yesterday, I went on line and ordered me a couple more Christmas gifts.  Yup yup, I'm getting there.  My cards are almost all addressed, only a handful left to write out.  It feels good to be ahead of the game for a change.  Years ago, I used to be so organized, but in my senior years I've been known to get behind quite often.  Does it bother me?  No, not any more.  I do what I can, how I can, when I can.

I have a few photos to share this morning.  The first is one of our trees wearing it's finest Fall colors.

At work, the Mrs is always receiving beautiful floral arrangements.  This is one that she got for her birthday a couple of weeks ago.

And lastly, this last photo is one that I took on my way home from work one morning.  The sun was just coming up behind some trees, so I pulled over to see if I could get a half way decent shot.  This is one of the things I am working on.  Practice makes one better.

Now I'm off to get dressed and start my busy day.  I have lots of things to get done before I go back to work tonight.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

I have to get to work on the design for our cards before we do end up behind! I design and scrap them and David does the addressing. It’s a good process, but it can’t happen until I start! 

Tootsie running after you reminds me of Baggle when he first met Kaline, well after the few weeks of hate then mistrust that cats go through. He tried to play chase and keep up with her. Funny thing, when she chased him, she could never catch him. She slowed down to keep the game fun.

As always, you photos are wonderful. (an ideal to which I strive) I love all the co0lor in your trees and the Mrs’ flowers! The sunrise if beautiful with the silhouettes in front off it.
