And virus induced exhaustion has set in....

And I can't talk, and this is just about killing me.  The MA finds this all quite amusing, which I find a tad annoying.  Humph. In fact a shot of tequila was offered to me and I just can't even begin to stomach the thought of drinking anything.  OY, I must be sick.

So I am going to do a photo post, as I have a lot of pix that haven't been posted and I don't have the mental capacity right now to be clever.  No comments necessary.

This looks like a surreal landscape to me!  I love it.  Going to alter it someday and make a funkier version

Amazing color this year


Looking up at the maple tree in front of our house

Through the branches...

Smith Lake in late evening

Calm and zen


slashes of white birch

nature works hard...

Trees and loon

Flaming tree tops

Morning glory

dramatic morning light


birches and maples

At the end of my driveway

Same tree, different light

You may have seen some version of some of these on Facebook through my Instagram app.  I am an Instagram addict.  I love using it, and just so you know, it is only available on mobile phones.  You can use all sorts of fancy filters that you already have.  And as soon as I get my new iPhone in a few weeks, I will download more filter and effects apps!  Instagram is a photography social network, and it is awesome- so much fun to use.

But there is nothing like traditional photography beauty!

Until next time, be a joy giver!

A Phew Phast and Phurious photos for Phun!

Nothing like a little alliteration to end/start your day

Lol.  Anyway, fatigue is coloring my world right now, and I am missing talking to you all.  I have a few pix and a random thought or two.

First, my son Greg is getting married in just over 2 weeks. I am officially going to be a wreck soon.  Not that anyone is going to know it except for me.  I cover my wreckage well.

Second, my childhood home will soon not be mine to visit......  I can't even express how I feel about this yet.  Well, I guess I did do that in a previous post but this is wrenching.

Third, all I really want to do is take pictures and edit.  Is that too much to ask?  I bought my lottery ticket!  I have been saying that if I win I will be heading to Paris to hide, but until my passport comes it, will have to be New York City, I think.....  is this counting my chickens before they hatch?

Next, I am pretty much loving my job again.  THANK HEAVEN things have settled down a little, now I just have to make a point of avoiding joy stealers and crazy makers.  Of which I have a few lurking around the edges of my life. GIVE ME JOY PEOPLE!!!  :)

Ok, my tiredness is showing, and so this alliteration titled post is done.  Enjoy these rocking Phabulous Phew photos  (hehehe there is the whole "f" thing again!!)

Until next time- be a joy giver!!  And go to bed and get some sleep!

Photo assortment.....

I'm sitting here, awake, but tired..... and wondering why I couldn't sleep longer today.  I have a feeling I will be paying the price later tonight!  Oh well.  I have been wanting to post a few more pictures so I thought I would take advantage of my time here.

Until next time.......

Altogether now......

Be a JOY giver-

and stay away from those joy stealers!
