I’m still in the Time Out that my internet service provider has imposed on me and some of the people I work with who I told the story to, laughed and told me that I was always a trouble-maker. But really, I didn’t see this coming (see post below, if you’re interested). I want to thank you all for your comments on yesterday’s post, and I’ll get it figured out. When you’re in Time Out, you get just about enough speed to check your mail, but not enough to get into anything else, like Blogger during peak hours. But it’s not going to deter me. I’m a pretty tough country girl and I’ve been through worse than this. It’s only the internet, for God's sake.
What I’m doing to get around the situation seems to be working for now, at least. I’m writing the posts in a word document in the evening and working on the pictures and getting them ready to upload. I re-size them to almost the size you see them here, and put them in a file. Then I’ll get up a half hour early the next day, get on Blogger, and since it’s not peak usage at 6:45 a.m., I’m able to pop everything into place.
After work today, I went to visit a co-worker who has a house right on the water, near the school, and although we were under a tornado warning, I wanted to meet her new Pembroke Welsh Corgi puppy. I'll have to go back with my camera. After I’d been there for a little while, the rain began to fall in torrents. We sat and watched it pour across the water and listened to the thunder. And when it had abated some, I headed home.
By the time I got here, the rain had stopped completely, and after dinner I took George for a walk down the driveway and back. I took several pictures and afterwards, played around with them in Photoshop, but none of them were anything to write home about. And while I was working in Photoshop, I looked up and out the window, saw the picture you see above. It caught my eye and will probably be terrible-looking when I upload it tomorrow, but I’ve only got a small window of time until I have to leave for work. It’s SOOC (straight out of camera), with a crop, and I’m letting it stand as is. So, for what it’s worth, here’s my offering to you today.
Have a great Thursday, everyone.
