Sunday sunrise

Actually I think the sunrise was from Saturday, but let’s not be picky.
Yes, on Saturday I was up in time to watch the sun rise. Hubby took me out and then he tried to talk on the ham radio satellite that went over. He made a contact – sort of. They logged him but he couldn’t catch their call sign. Oh well, it was fun.

Then we spent the whole day watching book 1 & 2 of legend of Kora. It’s good, but different. I initially wanted her to hook up with Mako. Now I’m glad they split up. I guess it shows you what happens when you get your ship.
Sunday we didn’t go anywhere, but we did get that paneling put up:

It needs painted white and pollied still, but it’s looking good.
And now I leave you with a flower because I’m tired:


Have a good one!

A Handful of Random Iowa Photos

I thought I’d already shared these, but I guess not. They’re from our very short trip to Iowa that we took in May – we drove up and back in one day (13 hours total drive time) to visit Hubby’s grandma.  There are a couple of extras, one from the ducky pond and one I finally got uploaded from 2012 – yeah, I am slowly working through the backlog.

Wasn’t that exciting? I am going to schedule this and maybe set up a couple more if I have time. Hubby is going to work on my website re-do over the weekend (which is probably past by now, if I have calculated correctly) so I probably won’t be on since he’ll have my laptop.

PS – seriously, if anyone knows what that bird is, or that weird cloud anomaly, I am all ears 😉

We didn’t leave until after 8pm and spent most of the drive home flirting with a thunderstorm, so….


I did not use a black and white filter on this

I should update my website instead of scheduling blog posts. Alas, I love blogging too much! I read an article recently about eliminating time drainers that do not “forward your goals” – aka the book covers or the books, I guess – and according to it things like this blog should be eliminated to save time. They’re probably right; I could do useful stuff instead of post here. But I get the enjoyment from it, so that’s worth it to me. It can’t be all work 24/7!

Anyway, there was an awesome storm that produced some pretty good photos. It took awhile to get the focus and such right, so I didn’t get as many as I would have liked, but no need to be greedy.

Pink & Purple


Makes me think of My Little Pony. I don’t know why. I bet a psychiatrist would have fun with my weird associations.

And no, I did not adjust the color/levels/curves/etc on these. They came out purple like that and I left it because it was an awesome shade.
