In The Shadows

I've been experimenting with shadow photos just for fun, but also to find things that will work for cutting silhouettes for stencils. The other day when Hubster and I took a walk I shot a few.

I like this one he took of me better because I look much taller and thinner than I actually am. Yes, I think I will use this one!

Berries for Breakfast

Berries for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Dessert! Oh how I love raspberries. This is my first bowl of the season. They have such a short season, so as soon as I see them I get all excited and try to eat them every day. These came from Watsonville, Ca. They are the famous Driscoll Farms, famous for strawberries also. I don't like strawberries nearly as much....unless of course they are from the Farmer's Market or straight out of the garden like the ones we had when I was a kid. I don't know why it is but I like all the things that have a very short season....Figs and Pomegranites are two of my other favorites and I overdose on them both when they are available. Maybe it is because growing up we only had things to eat that were grown in the garden or were in season in the area where I lived. Long before things were shipped in containers from all over the world, and we could have whatever, whenever...but in my opinion most of it has no taste. So I am off to eat my berries, and think about how I will have them again...maybe with some yogurt at lunch, in my salad at dinner...and another bowl tonight. Yum!

Blog Abandonment

Well, not really, but it feels like it. I've had problems with the way this thing is set up and still having computer settings issues. Everything takes time and there have been other things demanding mine. So, no excuses, and none of that "sorry I haven't posted" etc. We all have the same amount of hours in the day, right? I've tried to find more, really I have, hasn't everyone?
I find as I have gotten older I really do need to sleep more than 4 hours a night. For years I could get by on that few, but no longer can I function properly without more. This past week, I have had a difficult time sleeping at all, since the unfortunate front porch encounter with a reptile................ I have problems even writing the word s---e. It was Monday last week, around 7 a.m. I wandered out on the front porch with my coffee, to listen to the birds and watch the neighbors head off to work. I was just standing there peacefully surveying my Queendom, and as my eyes swept over the plants, etc. I see a long yellow and black thing that should not have been there. I screeched and spilled coffee all over the entry way rug and myself, and ran back in the house. Hollering at the hubster, who wasn't dressed yet, then running to get my camera(how dumb is that?) Well, hilarity ensued, and hubster took care of the problem. No details available or needed. Anyone who knows me knows about my history of fear of slithering creatures. Anyhow, the rest of the story, I have been having the heebie jeebies all week. Springtime in Texas. sigh
