I believe I mentioned that I got a new phone this week. And I believe I told you that it does everything but take out the trash. At school the other day, when one of my co-workers asked me what my favorite feature about my Droid was, I had to admit it was the camera.
One of the first free apps I downloaded was listed in the photography category. It’s called Retro Camera and the app comes with 6 different old-school camera styles.
I’ve been taking pictures throughout the day using the phone ever since I figured out how to upload them into my computer. The images here are untouched with the exception of two, which were lightened a bit.
The day began with my husband packing up the car with the recyclables and asking me to take them to the dump. As my reward, I took myself to McDonald’s for breakfast.
I swear to you that I rarely ever do this. But I don’t know what’s gotten into me lately.
Damn, hash browns are good when they’re cooked right. Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
I’m just saying.
I parked here and ate, then headed home.
The entrance to our driveway.

Exciting, isn’t it? You still awake?
My husband came home with this the other day:
He said it was a gift for me.
I drank enough this morning to get all my chores done and then did some more. When I was done, I took a picture of the foyer.
I washed all the woodwork and polished all the furniture.
I even cleaned the front door. This old door has seen better days and was really dirty on the side that faces out. I’ve decided to paint it and clean the brass knocker, a chore I’ll tackle soon.
Then I went out to get vacuum cleaner bags.
The search was fruitless, however. The Lowe’s where I bought the crappy little vacuum 4 years ago doesn’t sell them anymore, so they don’t carry the bags. Some day, I’m going to have the vacuum of my dreams and it will be a Miele Neptune Canister.
At least I know what I want.
On the drive home, sad songs were playing on my CD and I didn’t change them, which turned out to be a dumb move.
I passed the nursery across from where we used to live at the horse farm and thought the sky looked pretty enough to take a picture.
Don’t worry. There were no other cars on the road.
Over the C & D Canal . . .
. . . and up the driveway to home.
It’s where the heart is.
And it's where the cocktails are.
I’m just saying.
