What a week it has been so far. I have found that scheduling my posts appears to be working well because I am seldom at my computer for the reason of reading blogs, commenting and writing my own posts right now.
I have a weekend workshop coming up in a couple of weeks (as part of my studies) and I have a heap of prereading, webinars to attend and assessments to complete before I get there. This is limiting my time for the fun stuff – like reading blogs. 😉
I have taken a few photos in the past week and due to the kindness of a very special person, I am now able to process my photos once more.
I tell you, it is all happening here…
Now that the rain has cleared here (and the mercury is soaring ridiculously high for Autumn) the balloons are out and about in my area right now.
This balloon was one of five one morning. I am actually zoomed in quite a bit as that large gum tree on the left is right at the bottom of my street.
I took the following shot only a couple of mornings ago. I heard a noise and recognised it for a balloon going down so I went outside to look and found one coming in very close over the neighbour’s house. I raced inside and grabbed my camera to take this photo above my roof. You can see everyone waving madly at me. I must confess that as much as I love the balloons, you will never get me up in one. Those baskets don’t look all the safe to someone who fears heights! lol
My little ‘tree of life’ outside the computer room window seems to have less caterpillars on it today. I’m not sure if the birds are finding them or they are moving on. However, here is one of the caterpillars from the other day.
I gave the macro lens a work out. I’m glad that nobody was watching me take this photo as to get it, I had to climb onto the garden bench and balance against the brick wall whilst maneuvering around to shoot this little fellow at the back of the tree.
Once inside, I decided to pester my cat and take photos. I had to discard quite a lot of them due to poor lighting and her inability to pose like a good model should but I still managed a couple.
I scored a scratch on the hand for daring to interrupt her 20 hours of sleep in the day.
Well, I am supposed to be studying right now but instead I am writing a blog post. I guess I’d better go and do some of it or I will not get it finished.
In closing, I’ll share with you my quote for the day on my calendar
Joy in looking and comprehending is nature’s most beautiful gift
– Albert Einstein
He wasn’t only smart, he was incredibly wise.
Blessings to you today.
