Random Thoughts and Picasa...
I had to recycle one of my favorite pictures today.
Yesterday, I added a different storage system for all my photos and I decided to use Picasa. One small problem. It won't recognize my camera downloads and I can't find the disk to download it to Picasa. Now I have to wait for my Information System person to get here. That's Mr. Bird Nest and he's at work until at least 7:00 tonight.
I had lunch and shopped in downtown Greenville yesterday with three of my friends and didn't get home until 5:30 p.m. You won't believe it but I took pictures of Christy's garden (we met at her house) and they didn't download. I've already e-mailed her and hope to go back to her house soon to retake them.
The picture above is of a stained glass window Mr. Bird Nest got me for our anniversary a few years ago. He built a new frame around it and we hung it in the living room window. The window faces West and it really glows in the afternoon sun. To me, the colored glass almost looks like an angel.
Anyhoo, last Saturday was Mr. Bird Nest's and my 22nd wedding anniversary. Did I tell you we dated for almost ten years before we got married? We had both been married before and were really scared to do it again. It's been wedded bliss ever since. Not!!! We've had our ups and downs but we learned to communicate better, not to have to always be right and most of all to be a team.
Today, I've got Lauren (5) and Carson (8) here while my DIL Elizabeth (the 1st grade teacher) attends a class. Will it ever be pool time? It's the best babysitter in the world!
I'm off to Haven in Atlanta tomorrow and I have one-hundred things to do to get ready. My worst habit is procrastinating and I may just be the Queen of it. I still have to have a pedicure, take my car washed and cleaned inside, pack my suitcase and heaven knows what else. Tomorrow, I get a haircut at 9:00 a.m. and then hopefully, leave for Atlanta about noon. It's about a three hour drive. I rarely go anywhere without Mr. Bird Nest but he's got himself all organized with meals and lunches while I'm gone.
Sunday, Rick and Noelle had us over to their house for dinner for father's day. Rick and Mr. Bird Nest spent part of the time trying to get Rick's present (a camera) to work. It's a tiny thing used for extreme sport photography.
Here they are hard at work.
Nicholas was installing Skype on his laptop so we can talk to him and he can also talk to his other grandparents in North Carolina. So far, it has been a lot of fun.
Noelle took a new picture of me for my blog and Facebook and she also snapped this picture of Chloe and I. She is such a precious little girl and I love her bunches and bunches.
I've been thinking of having plastic surgery on my eyelids and judging from this picture, it needs to happen soon. I have no eyelids anymore. Oh well, I told you this blog was partly random thoughts and I'm always brutally honest.
I've got to get back to kid watching. Carson is blasting something with guns blazing on Papa's computer and Lauren is watching "Another Cinderella Story" on the Disney Channel. I wonder what time Elizabeth is picking them up.......
