My first post in a couple of days.

I have to seriously look into getting a new dryer. The last twenty minutes in 100 degree heat just to hang the clothes, albeit they will dry beautifully in it, is too much. This, coming from the quintessential homemaker! I am the one who loves hanging clothes just to be outside. It’s just that hanging whites – all those socks and underwear – takes so long! I am OCDish and every sock must hang with its mate. Do you know how long it takes to sort through thirty pairs of white socks, stockings, sport socks? In this heat it is too long.

Today is the first day of RWA. For those of you unfamiliar with the romance world, RWA is the annual conference for romance writers. It has incredible workshops and gatherings. Fortunately there are some on-line alternatives these next three days. I have signed up for a symposium at Savvy Authors with some outstanding workshops. I will pretend I’m at the conference while I work at my little computer. These are some outstanding lessons.

So… now that the laundry is hung and dried and I have completed my little assignments, I pulled out my camera and followed a bunch of bugs around my yard. Between the dragonflies and the butterflies I kept myself mildly entertained. If you could see how many shots I downloaded you would say it was more than mild.

Here are the butterfly pictures. I have waited all summer to capture one of these and this was so much fun!

I found this critter the second we got in the car to drive into our town. That required my kids to sit in the car the ten or fifteen minutes it took to take fifty or so pictures of my flower garden.

Forgive the redundancy.

This butterfly sampled every flower in this bed. It was so much fun.

Aren’t the colors gorgeous?

This my little piece of heaven and I thank you for allowing me to share it with you.

Love, as always,

  1. Great photos. I too like to take photos like that but seldom get the chance.

    Now, the evil sci fi writer in me says that one of his antagonists could transform such a beautiful creature into a deadly creature for his evil purposes. Can’t you hear his evil laugh as he prepares several of them to be released in the Royal Gardens which the heroine is supposed to be visiting. One sting and she’s toast.

    Rrrippp, slap. MMm mmmm mmm!

    Sorry about that. I hope that the duct tape holds. Have a nice day.
