Saturday, December 6
I have to tell you what just happened!
I’m sitting at my laptop staring at the blank space on the screen wondering what to blog about. It’s 5 o’clock and, the days being short at this time of year, already the daylight is fading.
Gee, I don’t have photos for a blog entry. (It’s a lot easier for me to write a post when I have photos ready to insert.)
Lately the days have been dark and chilly.
I don’t feel like sightseeing in the damp chill. Bridget and I stay at our camp outside Oak Flat Campground near Superior, Arizona, snug inside the Best Little Trailer.
I take advantage of this sequester from the world to work on money reports, to take care of other online business, and to read.
(Note: Money reports are now complete up to and including August 2014! I’m also near the end of the Outlander series by Diane Gabaldon. What a story!)
Anyway, as I was saying . . . .
I stare at the laptop monitor wondering what I’m going to write.
Darn! I wish I had some photos! At this precise moment I look up and see a glow out the window. What is that? I grab the camera and rush out the door with Bridget on my heels.
“Look at the light!” I exclaim.
Maybe those two photos don’t seem spectacular to you, what with the prevalence of photos online being jazzed up with photo editing programs, portraying the world as if it’s in a constant state of neon flash. I think we become jaded by those photos. Then when someone shows the real deal, what a scene really looks like in person, when it’s “jazzed up” by Nature rather than artificially, it doesn’t have the impact.
These photos weren’t enhanced in anyway.
I giggle as I take the photos. “I wanted photos and it looks like I have some, Bridge. Isn’t the light gorgeous!”
We go back inside, I load the photos into Picasa, put a border around them, transfer them to WordPress and . . . .
“Oh my gosh! Now it’s pink out there!”
Again I grab the camera and rush out the door with Bridget on my heels.
Oh yeah, the PTV . . .
Of course, it being the weekend, I’m still waiting for the day when the body shop will have a door to replace the damaged one. I’m getting restless. I’ve even thought about moving to a new camp until I get the word from the shop that a door has been painted white and is ready to install. Then come back to this area.
It’s not that there isn’t a lot to see and do around here. I’m simply weary of the dull, dreary days, the soggy ground and mud, and the damp chill that keeps us indoors. On the other hand, if I don’t move camp, I might complete more money reports!
Readers tell me my blog is relaxing, peaceful, calm…
In keeping with that description I’ll sign off with the one photo that was captured yesterday evening. It’s quite a contrast to today’s gold and pink photos shown above!
Y’all good and relaxed? Great! Now go get your holiday shopping done!
