What happened to this week?

Mercy me!  What happened to this week?  How did it get to be Thursday night already?  I did take my camera out for a few minutes this evening.  It was so humid that I had fog on my lens. 

Here is a shot of one of my volunteer petunias anyway.  I applied the watercolor effect to the shot.  I like the way it sharpens the edges.  It doesn't look foggy now. 


I liked the watercolor effect so much on the purple petunia that I decided to try it on this pink one, too.  I really like it. 

I stayed outside for an hour or so, but I didn't take any more pictures.  I started pulling a few weeds, then couldn't quit.  By the time I wore out, I had a stack the size of a small hay bale!  I went ahead and pulled out some of the summer flowers that were on their last legs.  I want to get some mums in the ground.  Wal-Mart put out their big mum display yesterday.  Now I will have to decide if I want to get all one color, or as many colors as possible. 

I remember to take my camera to work with me this week, but I forgot to take it up front with me.  I still want to get a compact one that I can just slip in my pocket.  I think that is what I will get myself for Christmas.  I made a really pretty cake on Wednesday that I would love to have a picture of.  I work again on Saturday, then spend the rest of the weekend in St. Louis.

    No, not me; one of my peeps, LBeeeze, lives there. (I lived in Columbia for a couple years in the late 1970s.)
