Really Good Things

1. I enjoyed Retired Ladies Lunch on Monday and spending the afternoon shopping with a friend afterward without spending much money at all. It's a relief to know I can exercise such fiscal restraint, finally ;--)

2. Spending quality time with Molly and taking her to Dog Beach to play on Friday morning feels good. Now that the weather is warmer, we'll be able to do this more often together.

Clicking on the collage will enlarge the photos ;--)
3. Devoting time over several days to pruning, weeding, watering and photographing flowers in my front yard all seem like worthy accomplishments.

4. Learning more about Word 7 at Adult School is nifty and I love using the Photoshop Elements skills I learned last year to create collages like the ones in this post to share the photographs I've taken with my new Nikon D60.

5. I had a wonderful phone conversation this morning with my Taos Writers Retreat Buddy and found myself revisiting my early posts here at Sacred Ruminations ... and I'm surprised by what's there ... pretty much undiscovered by anyone. Perhaps I'll share some of those early posts again sometime in the future ... just because.

This is really a wonderful post. All the beach shots make me wish I could walk there with Molly too. And the flowers are so gorgeous. Best of luck with PS. My husband is very skilled at it and I know a few things but not like he does!

Very nice shots and collages.

I was wondering where you did your collages -- I find them interesting. I had been using appleworks for minebut once you make it smaller, it doesn't enlarge that I know of. I recently re-found my Photoshop Elements and might try that in the future. Glad you got out to the beach with your best "friend."

Thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving comments on posts you were catching up on. I ahve a BYB post this week too. Come and see it.

A sweet bunch of flower shadows and I loved the dog beach pics. Looks like a very happy pooch! Have a super week ahead :)

Nice collages, I go to the beach sometimes, I like the sound of the sea, do you?
