Our Weekend

Two of my favorite things that I had yesterday,
"Country Living" magazine and this cookie
from Panera Bread.  This cookie is out of
this world.  I could not resist and it had
been a year since I had one.  (The honest truth!) :-)

One would never imagine that there was lush green
foliage right under these birds high atop a tree.

I cropped it and turned it into black and white.  Just
a scene from our backyard deck.

This photo does not do justice to these emerging clouds
I saw recently after leaving the Asia Cafe one afternoon.
The clouds were such a brilliant white by the way
the sun was striking them.

Once again, playing around with the camera.

Once again we barely escaped some violent weather.  This
was made from our front porch about three days ago.

My computer has some problems, it has become very slow.  I did not think after posting these photos that I was going to be able to add any more words or sentences to the post.  This morning we were up around 4:30 am.  Clint was teaching and singing in the Sunday school class.  We were going to leave thirty minutes earlier this morning.  I was having trouble putting on a sleeveless top, I could not find the arm hole!  The reason was my head was in the arm hole ... duh!  A few minutes later I was  straightening my name tag on my jacket and my name tag read, "Clint Ellison".  We are on the interstate and Clint comes out with a loud OMGosh ... we are in the wrong car.  He had placed his guitar and music stand in the other car.  We had to turn around and come back home and exchange cars.  Since we left early, we still got to church thirty minutes early and all was well.

P.S. Please excuse the spacing error above, my cursor is not working.  :-(

We have fallen in love with humming birds.

Catching My Breath!

If you hear a voice within you say, "you cannot paint,"  then by all means paint, and the voice will be silenced.

It has been a busy week and I am trying to catch my breath but it is not easy when you rise at 5 AM and on your one day off you continue to stay busy! Whew!  Yes, I know I just typed a run-on-sentence just as I live through these run-on-days.

This morning we arrived at church a little after eight and was pleased to see more attendance today.  It is getting a little cooler.

A little lost for words today, I thought I would post a few pictures and try to remember how to do a blog post!

Clint's leaf.

This morning Clint said to me, "You need to come look at something on the deck, it is a sign." There was a yellow leaf on the deck which made Clint happy, he is looking forward to fall and winter. My response to Clint's sign comment was for him to please step over to the counter and see my "sign". Just yesterday when I was leaving work, there was a sign for me right beside my car door. I had picked it up and brought it home with me. We both were rejoicing that we'd seen evidence that fall can't be far behind.
