Mamma Mia!

Michelle, Dawn, and I went to see Mamma Mia! today. It was awesome!! I laughed, cried and had a blast singing along with all the songs from ABBA. Now I'll have to dig out my ABBA CD's. Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the page and pause the music player :)

Here's another entry for Roger's Creative Phototgrapy contest.

It's a picture of the top of the lava tube otherwise know as Kuna Caves (see post below). I edited it using Photoshop, but don't remember which filter I used. I just liked the colors (and it matches my current blog colors). This is the original.

My Adventure Into The Deep Abyss

Cristie, Jessica, Emily, Sarabeth, and I went to Kuna Caves yesterday. It was my first trip there in the 31 years I've lived in the Treasure Valley. Let me say, it was not that impressive, but it was fun. My body sure aches from the bending and crawling and bruises to my legs and top of my head. If you ever go, take a flashlight, extra batteries, and definitely knee pads. If we go again, the knee pads are first on my list! LOL! Oh, if you wear pants that are too big for you, wear a belt! Here are the pictures.

Mama sent me this video. Otters are so adorable. They're what I want to see the most if we go the the aquarium. I want a pair! Check it out!

What is this?

It's been so long since we've had rain here I forgot what it looked like. Today we had a heck of a storm move through. Although it only lasted about 15 minutes, it was quite awesome. I LOVE the rain! Obviously I need to clean out the rain gutters cuz I had quite the waterfall, LOL! I tried to get some shots of the lightning, but it didn't cooperate, darn it!

Deep Thoughts

I sometimes feel a sudden urge to run around naked.
But I just drink some Windex and it keeps me from streaking!

What you lookin' at?

Here's another submission to Roger's Creative Photography contest. I took this using the super macro option on my camera. It's kind of cool how the subject is in focus and the rest is a blur. Didn't even have to edit it. Click on the photo to see a larger view. Alternate views here, here, here, and here. I never plan on winning. I'm just in it for the fun and getting to see other photos and reading peoples comments. Thanks and good luck to all other entrants.

Here's yet another entry for Roger's contest over at Creative Photography.

After watering the lawn this morning, I decided to play with the camera a little. I noticed the water droplets on the Trumpeters vine and the reflection of the neighbor's tree in the droplets. What a cool shot! I edited it with Photoshop using the omni effect in the filter options. It highlighted the droplet just enough to enhance the image and make it look like it's glowing from within. You can check out the original here and the enlarged image here. Good luck to all the other contestants!

What is a quirk?

Michelle keeps tagging everyone who reads her blog and I happen to be one of the unfortunate ones! LOL! This time the subject is quirks. What exactly is a quirk? A quirk is an odd habit. Quirk, Quirk, Quirk. Isn't it a funny little word? Anyway....
You're reading my post so now you're tagged!

The rules:
1) List 6 of your quirks.
2) Link back to me
3) Leave a comment to let me know you've posted

Here's my six:
1) Under or Over? My toilet paper has to go on the TP holder to it rolls over the top. If I find yours going under, I will probably change it.
2) My windshield has to be clean and streak free. I will wash my windows while driving down the road if I have to. Right Mom? LOL!
3) The TV is almost always on. Even if I'm on the computer, piano, reading (like I ever read) and even when I go to bed. I like the background noise. If it's too quiet, it annoys me. Yes, it's on now.
4) When I eat dinner, if I have meat, taters, and a veggie, I will always eat the veggies first, then the taters, and the meat last. Don't ask me why. Just do.

How's 4? Can't think of more now. It's bedtime and I'm tired!

Creative Photography

While cooking Chicken Fajitas for dinner the other morning(I work the graveyard shift), I was noticing how beautiful the colors blended together. I usually take pictures of nature outside, but thought, what the heck. Nature created this, too. So, I've decided to intertwine my creative talents in the kitchen and behind the lens. No photoshop here, just Mother Nature and myself in harmony. BTW, the fajitas were awesome!!! I made enough to feed me for 3 days. They were equally good, each and every day. YUM! Check out Roger's Creative Photography Contest and the other entries here.
