My World #2 - (and a bit of catch up too)

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all
May your blessings outnumber
The shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.

1. Although it's frustrating to be sick, I'm grateful for time & opportunity to rest this past week as my body battles the bug within. Of course, I've fallen behind on most everything ... but I'm hopeful I'll be my energetic healthy self again soon. Molly's certainly ready for that too!

2. My garden continues to bloom so when I drag myself to the warmth of the patio out front (usually with camera close by) and plop myself down in those blue 'mock' Adarandak chairs, I have lovely flowers and interestingly changing skies to look at.

3. If I'm feeling well enough, tomorrow's plans include lunch with my sister and good friend followed by another camera class at Ritz. I'm delighted with all I've learned from attending previous classes and look forward to learning even more about using the features of my Nikon D60 & Tamron 28-300mm lens.

Love the collage. I wonder if we passed each other and didn't know it. Although... now that I'm thinking about it I was the only Black face out there I would have been hard to miss. LOL! :-D
