Here we are again, with a crazy photog spending precious time trying to take a funky photo of herself reflected in a rainy window. Well, the other options would be to do the dishes, or make something nutritious for lunch. Awe, I think I'll take photos in the rainy window! I can always eat gumdrops for lunch.
As I was coming into the house after dark, right by my entry was this little dandelion all alone coming out from between the grass and the driveway. Amazing that the gardeners hadn't annilated it. I came to the rescue and brought it in to be my model. I have some nice crisp sharp ones but somehow this soft focus one is the one that appeals to me.
Ahhhh, this is better, a trip to Old Town San Diego, California with my photo friends. Much better than taking photos of cereal. But you never know. Some days I may be back there. Maybe it will be at least eggs and bacon next time. This photo is taken from Heritage Park in front of an old restored Victorian Era house. Up on the hill you can see modern architecture looking down on Heritage.
Oh my, I have stooped to taking photos of my breakfast cereal! Am I really that desperate to try and keep photo-a-day on track. Welllllllll... yes I guess I am!!
When we take walks around the yard there are always treasures to find. We have seen these many times sitting up on the bridge column. The kids pick them up, examine them and then put them back. Today we had been down to the trampoline and on the way back up Madi picked these up, examined them and then held them up beside her face and made a "gopher face". Tooo funny, I just happened to catch it. Her mother was verrrrry grossed out.
Today was a day of goofing off. I spent time doing things that I needed to inbetween taking photos and editing them under the ruse of homework. I picked this dandelion because I need to remember that even weeds can be beautiful, and similar to the lemon/lemonaid saying "If life throws you dandelions make dandelion wine" A sandyism. Corny huh!
I have an old desk that I bought myself as a reward for enduring Jury duty several years back. Actually it was soooo charming and small and the price was just too good to pass up. Well, I love to sit at it and communicate with the people I love in the old fashion way, with pen, ink, paper, envelopes, and stamps. I wonder how long until this is obsolete like the stage coach and pony express. I hope not in my time. I like to write.
A few not soooooo old stamps. One of Frank Sinatra that is the only one of that type that I recieved. I really should soak them off and catolog them but then I would have to put my camera down. Oh No!! Maybe I should give them to Dad who WILL work on them.
Never get in the way of a frightened cat, especially a siamese. Mocha got startled when I went into the bathroom to get a tissue. She peeled out across my foot and left this nice long scratch. Not deep enough to need stitches, but plenty deep enough to bleed and sting. Go Mocha!!
Conner has a mixture of disbelief and a little bit of amusement on his face as he sees his lunch fly away.
As soon as we got set at the patio table to eat our lunch, my grandson proceeded with his normal practice of needing to go "potty". I knew it could be a mistake to leave our food unattended. In the past, some very efficient workers have thrown our whole brand new lunch in the trash. Today, there were different workers. When we returned, there were five little blackbirds having a great picnic on our table with chicken and french fries. As we came up they all flew off with Conner's lunch.
We have had a great winter with more rain and snow than we have had in a very long time. Big Bear Lake got more snow at the last big storm than there has been since 1969. When I went up to the cabin it was basically buried. It took a man with a tractor about 1.5 hours to dig out the driveway. This is a view from Menifee out by the college of the local mountains. I believe Mount San Jacinto.
