Bored with wicked hot summers, bored with the monitor and keyboard all day and night, consumed with concern about family, work, and post ideas, I made a decision to walk around the house aimlessly in the evenings, bonding with my camera (I love its smells and sounds), tending to regular chores, my small wildlife habitat, and without caring to visit my laptop. No rushing. Before bedtime I checked e-mail, downloaded photos, played a few games of Free Cell, and then shut it down. Done. And I liked it. I still do. My blogging community is like family to me, so I was hoping I’d hear news via e-mail if I needed to know something.
I own this cursed but blessed addiction that made me fight off the urge to post and share three times a week but I didn’t let it beat me! So here I am again with old news. I’m ready for a shot of blog.
I sang rainy day theme songs to Chloe and Bella while we watched it downpour for five or six hours straight. Outdoor play was suspended. “It’s a rainy day, it’s a rainy day, it’s raining outside so we can’t go out and play…” (an 80's Sesame Street jingle I remember, do you?) Hey guys, it’s a Lipton’s Home Style Chicken Noodle Soup and grilled cheese night!
Most of Fay’s fury flowed down the hills into the streets… Our soil is resisting moisture but the new wildflower patches I have soaked it up.
Then, the quiet calm.
Back to hot sun and dog days.
The only Heron.
Noisy goose and duck convention.
I had intended to show this photo of a Great White Egret on my last post,
Loving my camera.
Hanna spat on Charlotte.
We'll be watching Hurricane Ike.
