It sure has been a long time since I blogged anything here. I started one a while back but four or five words into it, I was no longer into it.
Weather here has been depressing for the most part and I haven't been able to get out to shoot images...and that really depresses me. The weather is improving and I will be heading out either today or tomorrow. But on the days I did get out recently, there wasn't much to shoot or what I shot didn't come out well.
However, a new addition to the household where I live and it has been keeping me a bit busy. A puppy (see photo) arrived around Christmas time and has made a home outside my door. Strange little critter she is...hehehe. She actually belongs to my landlord's grandson, but I have been training her...and have the bites and scratches and all to show for it.
She's a smart thing. Even at five months she knows when she can get away with something and when she can't. But she is learning fast. She knows when she hears my door click in the morning that I will be out shortly to fill her water bowl. She also knows when she hears my faucet run, that I'll be out soon to refill her water bowl. And, I have seen her tip her bowl over and spill the water, then sit looking in my kitchen window with this look of "come on out and fill it again."
But the best thing about her is she is quiet. She rarely barks and when she does, it's mostly when she is playing with one of her toys. I have been trying to get her to "tell" me when she needs to go outside to do her thing by barking or something. But all she'll do is tug at my pant leg. It gets my attention, so I guess it will do.
Anyway, that's what's been happening in my world...and it will improve. I can't wait for the hot, summer days to return. But to prime myself for them, I'll be heading to San Antonio in mid-April. Good time to be there...birds, butterflies, bugs...all sorts of things to shoot.
Can't wait. 8v)
