Dreary Dreary September Day

Kitten Prayer

Last week was just gorgeous. This week has started out dreary and rainy and just plain yukky! The Seahawks kicked butt yesterday, though so that was good! But I hope the little kitty above is praying for more sunshine. Mama needs it!
 
I have been working all morning and was getting kind of down so I started my music and that always makes me feel better. I get most of my music from Amazon, one song at a time. Just got the latest Sheryl Crow song, "Easy". Really like it, too. Most all of my music is country, but since Sons of Anarchy is my favorite TV series, I have downloaded some, but not all of the music from the show. Some of it is too 'hard rock" or whatever they call it now.  We just finished watching all 5 season of the show again. Can't wait till next August when Season 6 comes out. I keep telling my husband, I have to live long enough to see the final episode of SOA!
 
I love reading mystery books and read them on the Nexus 7 I won from Brand Thunder. I found a site called Freebook Sifter. You can sign up for emails and they send out a list every day of hundred of free books. The books are actually on Amazon so easy to get on your e-reader. The problem is I find one or more every day and can't read that fast. But I found out if you find one you like you better get it that day, cause it won't be free the next day. There was one yesterday I kind of thought my husband would like and didn't get it. Yesterday it was free, today it was $9.99! Live and learn, I guess. So he won't be reading it!
 
You all have a great week. I guess I will have my afternoon coffee and get back to work. See ya soon!

September 11th

Where were you on September 11th 2001? I think everyone remembers exactly where and what they were doing on that day. My husband and I had ridden our motorcycles to Winthrop, Wa and stayed in our favorite little cabin, Mountain View Chalets. We didn't turn the TV on that morning so when we went out to get on our bikes to ride home, the other visitors were talking and said to us "What a horrible day." And I remember saying, "What do you mean, it is a beautiful day?" So they filled us in and we couldn't believe what they were saying. So we went back in to the cabin and turned the TV on. The reception wasn't very good but we could see the towers falling, etc. All we wanted to do was go home, so we got on the bikes and left for home. It is still unbelievable in a way, that our country, where we feel so safe and secure could be attacked in this way. 

A few days later a guy asked me to make a Persona theme so I did. At that point I didn't know much about Photoshop Elements so made a simple design. 
Ground Zero Spirit


To change the subject, I told you about my bee sting on my last posting.
Well it turned out to be a very bad sting. I actually don't know if it was a bee or what it was. But I ended up at the Dr. getting the blisters drained. Actually it was 1 big blister by the time I went to the Dr. I still have to wear a dressing on it or I can't wear a shoe!

I have been busy working on fall designs and may do a few Halloween ones. It doesn't seem possible that Halloween is just around the corner. I see the candy aisles are full in the stores.


Morning Light on Jungle Waterfall

I thought the above design turned out real well although it isn't a fall design. Took a lot of time to add the trees, bird, clouds, etc. but it looks very tranquil, doesn't it?

There has been a big discussion on the Persona forum about copyrights. One designer thinks she can take any photo, wallpaper, etc. on line add a few birds to it and then copyright it! I can't believe she actually thinks she can do that. I do copyright a design or wallpaper that I have made from a totally blank canvas or from a photo I have personally taken. 

School is in session again and I imagine there are a lot of Mom's out there that are breathing a sigh of relief. I can remember how excited the first day of school was for my kids. Myself, what I remember most about the first day of school was what I was gonna wear. For some reason that seemed awfully important! I imagine it is still the same out there.

Aspen Leaves Gold

Our weather has been superb. And is over 80° today and gonna get warmer. I love it, I can hang laundry out, the laundry is smaller because the pants are short and the sleeves are short or no sleeves. I hate wearing big bulky clothes and coats. 

Have a great September if I don't get back on the blog again this month. But I am trying to do better!
