As my English friends would say, "it's bloody hot", as I would say, "it's hot as hell". I ran errands and shopped most of the day. In between stops I would glance at the temperature gauge which would show me it was either 101 or 102 outside. I grew up in weather like this in Texas, but it was supposed to be that hot there, not here.
Oh stop....it sure doesn't do any good to complain about it. Just be grateful that you have an air-conditioned car to drive and an air conditioned house to live in and I am...but I have to say it just one more time....it's hot. OK I'm done.
Along with being hot (oh, sorry, I said it again), I am excited beyond belief. This morning a sweet friend of mine, who follows my blog, (that makes her doubly sweet) called and asked me to be the photographer for a family reunion they are having in a couple of weeks. About 50 people are gathering to celebrate the life of her husband's father & mother while they are both still living. She asked me to come and shoot the celebration, both posed and candid shots. Oh I am ecstatic...so much to think about, so much to plan for. I am giddy. OK, Deanna take a deep breath.
Anyway, needed to share that. And I am just about ready to start printing all of my postcards for Kat's postcard swap then off to the post-office to get them mailed. Not like waiting until the last minute. And I gotta admit the hardest thing about this swap is deciding which image(s) to use.
Prompt Addicts (flickr group) theme this week is bokeh...here is today's entry...my Limelight Hydrangea is just coming into bloom, and I love all this pretty sun-lit bokeh in the background.
My pink hydrangeas are blooming again after the first 40+ blooms pretty much fried due to the heat, hopefully these will last a little longer, but not if we continue to have 100 + degree days. There I go again, talking about the heat. But looking ahead, the temps are supposed to be in the 80's for the rest of the week, maybe you won't have to listen to me squawk anymore.
I have never messed around with the filters in Photoshop Elements, but I did with this...kinda of a neat look.

Until next time....
