Jump for joy

I spent far too much time playing with this little bit of silliness
 but I just couldnt resist.
Silly is good!

Play day.

Today I spent some time with the girlies. We had fun just playing.
Then I came home and played some more.
This time with some new photo editing techniques.
While there is nothing wrong with the original,
I thought the new version showed more of the fun we had.
Plus Emily's fav colour is yellow.  

                                          From this
                                          To this.

Looking Back

I have been looking over some of my archived photos. 
 I really loved this photo from the past. It reminds me of my childhood,
 even though the subject is my Grand-daughter.

The birds have been flying south. I have seen very few of the little songbirds that visit for the summer. 
This guy will be here all winter. As pretty as the Canada Jay is they still annoy me. They are big and bossy and great hoarders of seed. But in the frozen winter it is kind of nice to look out and see this kind of beauty.

U R My Sunshine.

This is a photo that I took last week at a special photo shoot of a Mom and her young son. I thought it was kinda sweet.

First Day

Today is the first time I have logged on to the internet with my new computer.
The first post from my new editing software.
Seems only appropriate that I should post this pic of another first day.

Fraud with a camera.

 Wandering aimlessly around my yard with my camera , at a loss as to what to shoot, feeling like a fraud with a camera. I dont know maybe it's the weather that makes me feel this way. Yup she is losing it. The bottom pic is the view from under my hammock in the yard. I miss the leaves.

Hello Sweet Pea.

Around here the sweet pea is a cherished addition to the flower garden.
An old fashioned flower grown by sentimental gardener types.
It seems that those who grow them really love them. The other day a friend stopped by for a visit.
She had clutched in her hand a lovely bouquet of Sweet peas swaddled in moist paper towel.
What a lovely symbol of friendship, a gift from the heart.
Every time I get a whiff of the sweet soapy scent I am grateful to have such special thoughtful friends.

The other day I was having a bad day.
I thought it might be theraputic to go out with my camera.
 My idea was to give in to the cold , foggy, dreary , decaying feeling that I had inside,
 and that seems to permeate outside, now that fall is in full swing.
 I was on the lookout for the most depressing images I could find...
oh yeah I was going to depress the socks offa you guys.
Seems like the universe had other plans for me. 
 Turns out there is inside me,
something that has a yearning for beauty,
an eternal optimist,
 a dreamer,
 a hoper
 and a sense that good always wins.
Sometimes I just need to have it pointed out to me.

Colour me delighted.

Look what I found today in my internet wandering. Are these not the neatest things ever? I have to say I love love love the pencil image at the bottom. Done by a carpenter named Dalton Ghetti. This would make a wonderful framed print. and would look great even without the alphabet carving. Sorry the image is so small . I guess I have alot to learn about borrowing images from google. And finally, just to cover my butt, I just want to tell you that these are not my images. Kudos to the creative types that did these awesome carvings.

Foggy Morning

Foggy and cold this morning.
This is the view near the end of my driveway.
Looks to me like winter is 
just around the corner.
