Made in the Shade

"There's beauty in the breakdown." - Frou Frou

It's been a lazy Saturday. I stayed in bed until noon. Then I finally got up and did a little housework. I was planning on planting some flowers in my window boxes, but I was much too lazy for that today. I'm going to do it in the morning instead. My plan is to get up early tomorrow morning. Hopefully, I will follow through on my plan. I have a tendency to scrap all plans and rationalize reasons to stay in bed in the mornings. LOL! It was a beautiful day - sunny and in the 60's. There was a nice breeze blowing, so we opened the windows in the house. It felt so good.

I went over to my sister's house for today's photo shoot. She has this beautiful tree blooming in her yard right now. We went out earlier than usual to take these pictures. The shadows cast by the tree proved to be a problem, but I think we still mananged to get some good photos. I'm wearing a knit dress from Old Navy and a cardigan from Anthropologie. This seemed like a nice, comfy spring outfit. I'm also wearing more new jewelry from The Limited. My sister took the last photo. I was talking to her while she was working in her garden shed, and she said "hand me the camera" and took a picture of me. We were talking about the big barn behind her house. She told me that the loft in it was awesome and that I needed to go up there and take some pictures. I told her we had tried but couldn't figure out how to get up there. She told me how to get up there, so I think we might try to get some pictures up there tomorrow.

I went out and bought some flowers this afternoon. I saw my boss while I was shopping. He walked around with me for awhile and we talked about flowers. There wasn't alot of selection. I ended up buying some petunias and snapdragons.

Today's song is "Let Go" by Frou Frou. I enjoyed listening to this song today while sitting in my bedroom letting the cool breeze blow around me. It was a very relaxing, meditative experience.

I feel like the blog has been pretty boring lately. There just hasn't been anything exciting to blog about. I've got a few things planned for the future. First of all, I've ordered a new camera. I'm so excited about it! Also, I've got a special photo shoot in the works with the photographers that did my piano shoot. Finally, next month will be my 1 year blogging anniversary, so I will be having some special posts to mark that significant event. So, stay with me, things are going to get more exciting around here. Have a great night!
