April desktop

I made a computer wallpaper with an April calendar. I really like using calendars on my desktop. I think I will never buy another paper one again.

I found the missing cord for the camera...these are taken in front of the Customs House in Key West. Loved the perspectives. This 25-foot-tall sculpture by J. Seward Johnson was inspired by the iconic Grant Wood painting “American Gothic.” It is made of hardened styrofoam.

Spring babies are arriving in Key West. We saw alot of new chicks all over town, following their mamas.

Here is another LO in progress. Til next time...

Spring Break

...has arrived here. Natalie practically DANCED in the door. We are headed out to shop for clothes as she is going through another growth spurt.

I went to Key West for the day yesterday and will upload any good photos I got if I find the cord for my camera...I know I just saw that darn thing the other day. I just LOVE my digital camera. I watched the sales on Amazon and got it last year. I will introduce My Favorite Things with (drum roll)...My Canon Powershot A630. I have gotten so many gorgeous shots and some that I was sure wouldn't turn out.
Here are some of the amazing photos I took in recent months.

Look here for my random musings, art gallery, recipe du jour and things of that nature.
