Autumn is Here Now


SoftTREE, originally uploaded by carolsLittleWorld.

It's pretty much peak autumn right now in Cedar Park. The leaves have all turned red and it's a balmy 75 degrees in the sunshine. I am going to be home this week and have many tasks to do but I'm not going to bore you with those details.

I shot this picture of the big Bradford Pear tree in my backyard a few days ago. I managed to soften it up a bit in camera and took its picture before what's left of the leaves have fallen off and blown away.

I hope to get out some shooting this week but I'm really enjoying my time resting up and getting stuff done around the house. I got a new TV set for my bedroom and set that up yesterday, so now I can watch TV in bed again (the other one, it would appear, just stopped working one day. I don't know why I have such trouble with television sets, I really don't.) Chase is enjoying having me home too, he barks at me and demands that I stop and pet him on a regular basis. I've been doing some pastels too, at least I did another drunken building over the weekend.

Today I'm meeting some friends at Z Tejas at lunch and then I'm going to start working on my sketchbook project. I have to find a "super hero" at the dollar store, at least that's my goal for today. I'll work on the project once I get the super here in place anyway. Watch this space for more details as that project unfolds.

Until next time...

It's still autumn here, though a cold one.

A super hero is...well...just what it sounds. I've gotten a doll to look like a super hero for photographing. Watch this space soon for more details. (Soon, I promise!)

Thanks, Victoria for the well wishes and kind words about the new shots. I hope you had a great holiday too!

Merry Christmas everybody!
