I love to use the Webshots program as wallpaper and screensaver. They have so many beautiful pictures, and it’s free! Or you can pay them a little something and choose from even more pics.
This hydrangea pic is one of my absolute favorites. I don’t grow hydrangeas, only dream about them. They don’t grow well here, although some people have success with them. My son and his wife have better luck with them out near Rochester. They’ve got a little microclimate going on there because of Lake Ontario. They can grow several things that we don’t have much luck with…like azaleas and rose of Sharon (hibiscus family).
Lest you think I’m normally neat. I’m not! I had to tidy up my desk considerably for these pics. Mind you, I want to be neat, and I do tidy up sometimes, but after an extraordinarily short time the clutter is back! Argh! I need a magic wand. It's nice to have the family pics in the corner to keep me company.
If I look over my right shoulder I can see out through the sliding glass doors to the front porch and yard. I’d like to be facing this view so that I could watch the birds using the feeders while I’m at the computer. But alas, I can’t, so I just scoot my chair back every so often and check out what they’re up to out there.
There’s also a fern hanging inside the glass doors which blocks some of my view, but it’s pretty, and doesn’t ask for much, so I let it stay there.
I like the old desk that my computer and paraphernalia sits on. Its character doesn’t show very well in these pics. The boards on the side are what make it interesting. There are 3 spaced between the legs on either side.
I’d certainly like to have as much space as Alice has on her new desk. Lucky girl, she is. My hubby is going to add some shelves underneath for me. He built a new drawer to replace the original, which was lost…broken and thrown away probably. I have yet to stain it.
Oh guess what I used to take these photos? Yes, our brand new Canon Power Shot digital camera! I’ve been learning to use it and experimenting with it this weekend. I love it!
I hope to post something more exciting and fun soon, but this will have to do for now. I have lots of thoughts about what I THINK are interesting subjects (you may beg to differ), but not enough time to write them down lately. Maybe you should be grateful for that :)
Wait! Here's something funny: I just did a spellcheck and it wanted to replace 'blogger' with 'flogger'. Spellcheck just cracks me up :) Thank heavens for a little levity! Now I can happily get some sleep.
