I Missed It!

Can you believe it? I actually missed my 11th Blog Anniversary Date! I guess this year has really messed up things. So, instead of reminiscing or rambling down memory lane, I will show you our lovely Sophie.

I love to use the features of my smart phone camera to enhance pictures, adding special effects and a frame. I took this one a step further into Autodesk Sketchbook and softened the background because this was just an random picture taken in a cluttered room. Pretty cat but not so pretty backdrop.

Thanks to Sophie for helping me belatedly acknowledge my 11th blogoversary (September 20, 2009).

Project Obliteration

The dog days of summer are brutal here in the South, and sweat runs in rivers before you have taken three steps. Alas, we must push onward. There is much to be done. Unfortunately, I again failed to take before pictures, so my description shall have to suffice.

This has been an eyesore for years with overgrown vines covering fallen sticks and hiding rocks from past flower gardens. The vines were mostly obliterated with the weed eater and out of control bushes were given a dramatic makeover. It's not finished, but at least it is not the embarrassing mess it was.

Project Obliteration shall continue until all the vines have been...well obliterated.

Garden update: We have gotten a number of shishitos from our one plant. The poblano has several peppers, as well as the bells. One tomato plant has some green tomatoes on it. The other, I think, is too chewed off to bloom. Maybe I can get some carrots planted for fall. Right now it is too stinking hot for tender plants to survive.

I'm okay and so are you!

It is a beautiful Sunday morning. 
Let this little red leaf remind you that it's okay to be different.
 Be yourself and enjoy your day!

The Sky Aglow

Never waste any amount of time doing anything important when there is a sunset outside that you should be sitting under! C. JoyBell C.

It would be a shame to let such beauty go to waste, and as you can see, we did not. This was our view over the Gulf of Mexico a few years ago. My advice, when you see a beautiful sunset, is to drop what you're doing and go enjoy it.

What's In Store At DesignRGenes

Hello everyone,

I thought since I had announced my new store on Society6 called DesignRGenes few weeks ago, I would share a random sampling of the types of new products I have. Everything is cheerful and colorful and there are many items available in all-over-print which I am pretty excited about.

You will see below a folding camp stool. When I was a kid, we had several of these, but I don't remember what we really used them for. However, it was our habit on summer evenings when Daddy was home to sit out in the yard after dinner. One evening I decided that we should all sit on the stools, and I carefully placed them side by side, nearly touching, in the yard. Mom took a look at that arrangement and kindly informed me that we all could not sit like that. We opted for our usual lawn chairs and sat in comfort.

I would be delighted if you would drop by and check out DesignRGenes. As with Rosie B. Designs on Zazzle, I don't set the prices, and there are frequently sales. As of the date of this post, there is 30% off  "all things wall". The virtual door is always open, so feel free to browse around any time you like.
