Here's my photos for this weeks photo challenge. If you missed last week's photos...click here.
Saturday ~ August 28th, 2010 I believe this is a crepe myrtle. These are right outside the building where I work. They are just so bright and beautiful!!!
Sunday ~ August 29th, 2010 It actually rained today...for a little bit. We didn't receive the usual summer rainstorm...however, this was wonderful. It was a nice relief from the heat :) :) :)
Monday ~ August 30th, 2010 This is where the story ends.
BONUS PHOTO for Tuesday ~ August 31st, 2010. I couldn't find anything for today. So this is a photo of one of my pillow cases...LOVE THE RED SATIN :) :) :)
Wednesday ~ September 1st, 2010 First signs of fall. Isn't it beautiful. Every leaf looks like it was handpainted.
Thursday ~ September 2nd, 2010 This is a favorite spot that I love to look at and take photos of when I can...Do you notice that dark red bush in the center? It's another sign of fall/winter :) :) :)
Friday ~ September 3rd, 2010 (Photo actually taken yesterday). This German Shepherd belongs to the father-in-law of one of my neighbor's. He's a HUGE dog...the size of a horse...I'm not kidding...He stands all the way to my hip and he's very wide and very long. He's such a sweetheart of a dog...just a sweetie pie and so very gentle. He came over to greet me :) :) :)
Tales from the Pear Tree
Work has been good this week. I've been doing mostly inbound calls. That's always a little bit easier since people actually WANT to talk with me :) :) Either way, I really enjoy my customers for the most part :) :) :)
Oh, apparently, I'm much better at selling peaches over the phone than was previously thought. I was one of the top two peach sellers last Tuesday. So I came home with a really nice prize yesterday that included Wolferman's Maple Almond Signature English muffins, summer sausage, baklava, cranberry citrus tea cake, dark chocolate cherries. My dad wants the citrus cake...and I'll have the baklava and there will be peace in the household :) :) :) Oh, it was the best prize I have won this season :) :) I LOVE it...
Those english muffins are yummy and the size of tuna cans...no kidding..They're super chubby...just the way I like my English muffins :) :)
My shoulder seems to be doing better...but it's a weird mix of feeling much better when I'm at home and hurting again when I'm at work. I suspect it's the chair I sit in.
Meanwhile back in Heather's regular life...oopps...my regular life...my dad and I went and did a little grocery shopping today. I bought some non-food items because it was payday and I really needed some new deodorant. In any case, we saw a yardsale sign and my dad went to stop there...just for moi :) :) :) I found one thing...but oh, what a thing...it was a set of two sheer w hite curtains that I can put in the front room window...to let some light in but maintain some privacy. I have neighbors not to far away...and we have a perfect view of their back porch and they have a nice view of our living room...or would..if we opened up the blinds all the way :) :) :) They're nice...but I just like a little privacy. Oh, the sheers only cost $1 for both of them together. What a deal :) :) :)
My dad wanted to buy curtain rods. I suggested we go "Depression Era" in our decorating and just use some pushpins and some heavy duty yarn, until we can afford to buy those. Apropos buying stuff, we do need a toaster, so I'm going to look around for a vintage one!!!
It's nice and hot again here in Southern Oregon. That's the news from Oregon today. Extra love and hugs this weekend, Heather :)
