Sunday Morning - Is it August already?

It's Sunday morning and I am still hoarse and now also have some pain (swollen glands, maybe). I am beginning to wonder if I should go to visit my Mom tomorrow or not. I guess I will call and let her make the call.

I went to check for the newspaper (it isn't here yet) and noticed some shadows so took a picture for today's post. I need to start carrying my camera everywhere so that I can get shadows in between Sundays so that I don't always have to get outside in the morning and hope for some sun.

I had a visitor to my yard yesterday and was fortunate enough to get some pix. He is so skittish, I frequently go to get my camera only to find that when I return, he hears me and takes off. He is surely a beauty. I think I should try to draw him.

I have some laundry to do and need to get packed as I would like to set off first thing tomorrow if I am actually going, so I think I will get a move on.....


  1. yea... tell me about it! time really flies!! wow ... you have a pond in your yard? that's so cool!!

  2. Hi Luthien,

    Thanks for stopping by. Actually we have a meandering creek through our back yard and have put some big rocks at the big bend just off the deck so we have lovely "rushing water" noise.


  3. that's even cooler!!! a meandering creek ... that's on my english country cottage wish list! (unfortunately i think the chance is quite slim :( )

  4. Sorry to hear you're feeling yucky - hope you feel better soon. The shadow pic is a good one, and the bird is really cool! I'll make a great painting. hugs, nancy

  5. I hope you're feeling better very soon, sweet Vicki!!
