Ostriches and Flamingos

We used to joke about ostriches, but I think flamingos are in the same head-dunking boat!

Little Glass Houses

Well ... ok ... not all the little houses were glass. They were mostly adobe huts, actually. But the one I spent my morning at was all about glass. It was the Spanish Village where everything is all about art. WOW - was it ever a special birthday gift! I learn how to do "torch work" and I made my first glass beads. It was supremely interesting ... I'll have to take pictures of what I did (and what I make with them) later.

Peaceful Moments

I need to do this more often (except for the circumstances - not feeling well today and trying to do paperwork for a meeting tomorrow). I am suspended in my back yard, intrigued by what I hear from the birds in the tree. I love being outside. It's amazing how it can relax me. This is what I miss about freelancing ... I could work outside!Just as I say that, our neighbor gives a sharp "Shush!" to my dog. That doesn't make me feel peaceful! LOL - but I don't blame him either. Daisy barked at him when he opened his gate. I am sure my dog does her fair share of disturbing the neighbors when I am not home!Sent via BlackBerry by AT&T

Hank The Tank

Our new pup is quite the addition to the family! His arrival is part of my effort to keep Miss Daisy from being lonely. But I think this little tankster might come close to driving Miss Daisy crazy! For the most part, though, she loves it. She isn't sad when I leave the house, and that makes me happy! What will make me even happier is when Hank's skunkish-coffee breath is tamed! Actually, I have to admit, it seemed more like Shredded Wheat tonight.

Neighborhood Celebrations

Ever since I moved here, I have enjoyed a special event in the summer ... the Fourth of July Celebration. While many head to the big publicized fireworks show, I join my neighbors and look into the sky from my front yard. It's amazing to me that people invest so much in their own shows! Of course, I have my camera in hand. But to capture the bursts of light is a big challenge! They are going on all around us and while I've got my camera pointed in one direction, something spectacular happens to the side or behind me, and when I turn to look, I miss the next one. I think I need to invest in a swivel chair.Blogged with the Flock Browser
