The high point of my morning was finding these fungi when Dog took me out first thing. That probably tells you how exciting my day has been and that I haven’t been out on my travels again.
The next thing we saw was the barriers around the excavation in Dog’s stubble field had fallen into the hole and across the footpath
And in this very hazy picture what you see is a site worker hastily standing them all back up again as the boss approaches!
I have had another lazy day listening to the buses going by – in particular one of the wee ones, which I should have started off on but was still in bed; it makes a “wheeeeeee” noise as it passes and it makes me smile!
I searched for other blogs that mention sea glass; enjoyed reading some of the posts and left a few comments and likes in my wake. Then Dog and I had a “preparing for Pup” interlude which involved checking out all the small collars and leads I had from when Dog was a wee chap … and Dog deciding to remove the stuffing from a toy rugby ball he found (I had probably taken it off him and hidden it in the cupboard when he started to destuff it originally!)
I made a collation of photographs for the weekly photo challenge and then because I mentioned it yesterday I have hunted out a collation that I made using GIMP to show you what I mean. Each of these photos is okay on it’s own but not necessarily exciting or well composed so I have edited them – cut some of them into a different shape or cropped them – and then assembled them to illustrate the concept of taking only photographs and leaving only footprints. This is a digital collation and so when I have the individual elements arranged as I want them I have created a mat and used sheer gradients to include texture behind the photographs and finally I added shadows to make it more 3 dimensional.
I use this technique quite often and you can find other examples in my deviantArt site.
Other than that I have completed a first draft of one of the sample walks I mentioned yesterday complete with maps – now I need to persuade some testers to want to do the walks and maybe raise some charity funds … but before that I am torn between another day at home tomorrow or going out … hmmm choices choices! I think I should go out because after just three days I am finding it harder to settle to sleep and then I don’t sleep well and then I don’t want to get up and my day is getting skewed into hibernation mode already! It wont do Dog any favours getting used to me being here all day either – although in a few weeks I will need to be here most of the time for Pup’s arrival and settling.
Hopefully you will come back tomorrow to see what I decided and what exciting things I get up to …
