How are you all doing this week? I've been doing pretty well. Last night I woke up about 12:45 a.m. and just could not sleep. So I went downstairs to grab a cup of milk. Then I came back upstairs, prayed, and played a couple rounds of Sudoku on my cellphone. Sudoku is a really smart puzzle game with numbers. In any case, I'm really loving my new phone. There are two camera apps that I like to use. I take photos on one app. Then I import them to the other app to add another layer of color. It gives me the retro vintage effect that I'm looking for. I seem to be obsessed with retro vintage photographs lately. Here are some of my photos that I took this week:
These pics are slightly different sizes than what I normally post on my blog. I think it will work out fine. It was great to finally find a way to get the look I wanted for particular photos. The apps that I use are free versions. However, I will definitely upgrade to the paid versions soon.
THIS IS MY FAVORITE MOUNTAIN. YOU WILL SEE PHOTOS OF THIS ON MY BLOG QUITE A BIT.
There's just something about a beautiful mountain on a nice sunny day. There are a few clouds in the sky. It's good coffee-drinking weather. In fact, that reminds me, I need to get a cup of coffee!
THESE ARE SOME FLOWERS ON A YOUNG "WEEPING WILLOW" TREE. AT LEAST I THINK IT'S A "WEEPING WILLOW"
I've been watching this particular young tree for the past few weeks. When it first started blooming, they were a very intense pink. Fuschia. They were fuschia in color. Now they're a pale cherry blossom pink. I don't know how much longer they'll last before the green leaves appear.
There are so many trees on this street. It is really amazing to see all the variety in color. I'm really loving springtime, because everything is coming to life. That means an explosion of beautiful color everywhere :)
It honestly looked like it was going to rain this morning. It was rain during the night when I couldn't sleep. However, the sun is making an appearance today. What was really neat is the snow that was on top of this hill. It seemed to have come out of nowhere. God makes everything new and different EVERY DAY :) :)
The church yard sale is on April 30th. They are participating in the city-wide yardsale. So there will be LOTS and LOTS of cool things for sale, and maybe some junk, too. It's all part of the fun. They're planning on having pancakes in the morning and hamburgers for lunch. All of this is to raise money for a missions trip to Uganda. There's a young married couple from our church that wants to go and serve for a couple weeks. Pray that they will raise the funds necessary. I don't know much about the particulars, other than it's a farm that they'll be working/serving with over there.
Now to figure out whether or not to get some coffee this afternoon. Coffee and Walker's Scottish butter cookies...not together. The cookies are spendy, so I don't buy them often. I do have retirement to think about.. ha ha ha ha :) :) Both are on my "favorite treats" list ;) :) That's the news from Oregon today . Extra special love and hugs, Heather :)
