"Beneath Your Feet"
Sandals. Summer footwear. Great in this hot weather. My favorite flip flops are on the right. My second favorites are on the left.
I took several shots of movement this week, but this first one I took became my favorite. It shows movement in my neighborhood, different than what I normally see. A fireman flushing out the fire hydrant, and an elderly man pedaling away on the bike. Then there's the movement of the water, the movement of the man's arm as he works on that hydrant.
Homemade oatmeal raisin cookies, made as a bar cookie instead of drop cookies. Either way they are yummy. I use the recipe on the oatmeal box. No, there are none left. The lighting? I set this on a windowsill in my kitchen and used natural light.
"Face Your Fears"
It's all about those gas prices. Listening to the news I heard the word "fears" in the context of a segment on gas prices this holiday weekend. I don't live in fear of gas prices...but they certainly make a great impact on how much we do these days. (A Lightroom preset was used to get the look you see here.)
I just took this one a few minutes ago. Currently I am watering my little vegetable garden that is just outside my backdoor. We have not had decent rainfall in at least two weeks, and I'm hoping that will change in the next couple of days. Meanwhile I bought a 'soaker' hose, pictured here, which slowly and efficiently drips the water onto the ground. I'm looking forward to some green peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, and kale in a few weeks.
