Apparently, there’s no more trouble in paradise regarding the color of the year post. I didn’t even have to do too much about it. That’s a win in my book.
Here’s a little story about today’s picture taking moment. The cool brisk air is still. I’ve got a breathtaking view of the bay to my left. The birds are chirping, one is different and I can’t identify it. The resident pigeon, Petie, (he’s handsome and intelligent), flies up to the wire and watches. I tool around with the camera, try to work on the settings. This camera is new, I’m still figuring it out one photo at a time. I could read the manual but this hands-on approach seems to be working for me. I pick up the tripod, walk backwards slowly, slowly, looking at the screen, making sure I’m going to get both my head and my feet in the next shot, when…
…BAM! Left foot in dirt! Balance lost! Arms flapping about! Almost bit the dust! All of this was fine and dandy except for the part about my wearing the NEW shoes!! I’ve never hopped out of flower bed and dusted dirt off a suede shoe so fast in my life. This was a proper shoe emergency just waiting to happen.
(Don’t listen, Petie.) Some choice words were uttered while concurrently brushing the dirt right off, we were back in business. That was just too close for comfort, my friends.
I picked up the red daisy ring Saturday, I don’t have a lot of accessories and tend not to shop for jewelry. I made an exception for this cute little thing. The necklace I got a few weeks back at my local thrift shop.
Today, everyone at work kept complimenting me on my necklace and saying how apropos it was, (ok, they said “appropriate”), for me to wear a daisy. “Like the Green Works daisy”, they exclaimed all day. This would mean nothing special except for this little bit of trivia: I designed the Green Works brand and packaging. Now you know.
(Ouch. I think I just sprained my arm.)
