End of August ............Already??

Well here we are at the end of August 2009 and it is a bit chilly. Working on scarves, mittens and winter hats totally is practical today :-P It also draws a close to summer nights with fire flies, moths and butterflies. The smell of sunshine on the laundry that has hung on the line to dry and the sounds of neighbors lawn mowers in the evenings, the sun going down close to 9 pm and the sound of kids playing outside until 10 pm.

Yes, I know that September still has some great days ahead but the knowledge of summer ending and fall creeping around the corner makes me think that soon the snow will fly and we will be stuck inside with windows closed and dreaming of warmth and fresh air.

Thank-you Lord, for a wonderful summer - even though people say it wasn't warm enough and the kids proclaim not long enough, but it is here for a remind us that this is what we long for in the middle of winter while shoveling snow.

I did not even make 11 days.....

Well I did not make it, my objective was to take a picture every day and post it. well I made it 10 days...and even then I cheated and took a couple pictures and then posted them on different days or posted more than one picture per day. I can not keep up with it, first part is trying to figure out what to take a picture of.........

Another topic, I got to see a play that I have been wanting to see for a very long time. Last year it was Lion King and I took my Mom & the girls as a Christmas gift. This year for Mother's day I received a ticket to see Phantom of the Opera......

I really was excited to go, and last night was when we used the tickets. The songs, the stage, costumes, scenes and not to mention the sound.....Man it was everything I was hoping it was, we had great seats a couple of rows from the stage. I had seen the movie once before going to see it (shortly before mothers day) my sister had seen it with Mom a few years ago and she has the video (I thought she mentioned 3 of them) and during intermission my sister who also got a ticket for mama's day belted out singing......she got the ladies behind us to laugh, she also was belting out in song afterwards in the parking garage, because the echo was perfect. I had a very good night and was too excited to go to sleep after I got home, I felt it today at work a bit sluggish especially looking at the screen all day.

Thank you Ami for a great evening I trully enjoyed myself ........smoochies

Aug 9

This is my hubbies walking stick, he tends to make an appearance around Halloween when hubby is dressed as death, otherwise he sits in the corner of the bedroom by the small window, somehow I see him every morning as I walk by. Poor guy is ignored by the owner.

My Favorite flower, so much so that I am going to get them tatooed on myself. Morning glories I love that their leaves are hearts and the color of the flower is so brilliant.

This one was taken a while back, meet Digger a buddy of the hubby got a new dog and brought him over, from what I can remember he is a miniture terrier. Here he is 11 weeks old, his head was as big as an orange.

Was missing the camera cartridge so I had to take a past photo. But I did take one today. Will load the cartridge and re-take for another day.

Aug 1 pix

I read in someones blog that they are going to post a pix everyday for the month of August. Sometimes I get sucked into these great thoughts. I am following the same rules, any subject, just post the pix, not always needing comments or reason for the picture.
The first picture I am posting is of some art work that I made for a catalog shoot, never used, I love it. I have it on the fridge (just like when I was a kid).
