I Just Had To

I may be repeating
myself.
Please forgive me if
I am.

My Mom had a saying
that went like this:
"My get up and go,
got up and went."
It pretty much
sums up my week.

Oh, I did get laundry done
and had some lovely
impromptu company
(thankfully, they did give me a little notice
as I hadn't showered yet and my house was a mess)!
I watered the gardens
and we swam.
But other than that...
I did not accomplish much.

I did take this picture though...




I'm no photographer
but I kinda like it.

I'm always so
fascinated when I see all
of the "effects"
people do with their photos
that I just had to try it.


Here's what I did...


Pretty fun
(I know, I am easily entertained and it wouldn't
win any awards but I got to play around
and now I can say
I've 'edited' my photo)

If all goes well,
we'll be attending a rodeo
tonight. 
It's a once a year thing.
I don't know
anything about rodeos
except for this...
I love watching
those cowboys!

See ya later.
Maybe tomorrow.
Maybe not.
Until then...
have a good one!

This picture is absolutely beautiful! Award worthy. I had forgotten Mom's pithy little saying. I am going to start using it instead of "lazy daisy."
