To those who count and appreciate their blessings, they will soar in life :-)

Total of three layers..Two of my photos are combined in layers... I layered a "Lil-Owls" texture in between the two photos :-)

Sunshine

Today started out gloomy and very cold..Now it is pretty outside, still a bit chilly..Simon was  happy to soak up some sun  :-)

I am not sure what these little yellow birds are called..Either they are normally very brave around people or these tiny fellas were hungry..
I like the pretty sound of their chirping :-)

Houston Ice Storm 2014, January 28th

Second ice storm in a week..
Icicles hanging from the edge of the roof of our house..
Freezing rain, thick gloomy clouds without a ray of sunshine..
Oscar and Simon both wonder why their backyard world is so freezing cold under their feet :-/
In the house Oscar and Simon huddle and cuddle to stay warm :-)

And the chase is on

My doggies love, love, love to chase and bark at squirrels..This squirrel teased my doggies mercilessly..There were spectators, lol..My backyard was very lively this morning :-)

Glorious Weekend Jan 2014

This weekend was a beautiful one spent with my sister....At lunch we celebrated our belated Christmas together.. During the rest of the afternoon and evening, we visited places that we used to frequent when our kiddos were in high school/college..We went to Salento's, Paddywacks and Village Firefly..I bought a piece of "Hurricane Art", which is the red heart pictured.. The unpainted heart has been with me for some time...I bought the red heart at the Village Firefly..These buildings are seen outside of Paddywacks..I decided to shoot a pic of the buildings because I loved the pretty play of light and shadow on them, with the moonrise in the background..I shot the pic of the buildings with my cell phone cam..I edited this image of the buildings in Photoshop to add a texture layer :-)
My patio is my outside studio and happy place to spend time working on art/reading and relaxing with the doggies :-)

Surrealistic Frenzy

I recovered this image, and many others, from a thumb drive that I forgot I had.. I played with this shot by adding some texture layers..Quite a different effect :-)

White Pelicans

I spent a beautiful afternoon with my friend shooting pelicans(with a lens).
We went to the Texas City Dike, an awesome place to birdwatch..It was a chilly day, but not too cold for the birds to do their thing :-)
