That's a picture I took last night of the hopefully-rooting hydrangeas in my hallway just to see what the camera can do. It was totally point and shoot, no lighting arranged, no editing of the photo. I think it is beautiful.
Everything finally got downloaded last night before I went to bed. Or is it uploaded? Hell if I know. August would know. He corrected me on that very subject last week. I think of how easily all of this technology will come to my grandkids and it astounds me. Like I told Nick Anthony yesterday at Verizon, we old people have had to come a long way- when we were young, transistor radios were the hottest new technology while his generation has just absorbed it all from the zeitgeist since birth. I think what I was really saying to him was to be patient with us old boomers, we have actually come a very long way. But oh- how easy they have made some things. After I got all my data on my new phone it was even paired with my air buds and my library audio book was right there, ready to listen to. Which, by the way, is Hannah Gadsby's book, "Ten Steps To Nanette." If you have never seen her comedy specials, you should. I wrote about the one called "Nanette" almost four years ago here if you want to hear what I said. The post also has some extremely darling baby pictures. The book is good. Gadsby is a fine writer and she has had a most interesting and also difficult life. I am fairly certain she wrote it herself.
Today was busy. I drove into town to take Hank to a doctor's appointment. Rachel has a new job and has to take the car and Hank has been having episodes of light-headedness which make him uncomfortable to drive anyway which is why he went to the doctor. Could be a medication he's on which they are taking him off of.
Anyway, after that I went to Publix and Costco and did my shopping. After I got home and had everything put away, I watered porch plants and checked on Darla who is still alive, still not moving. She drank a little water today which is good. She is so thin. I am wondering if going through a brooding period and raising those three chicks hasn't just worn her out. Poor, sweet little thing. Her kids are running the yard on their own now and seem to be fine. Violet's bebe is much larger than she is now.
Lord, Lord. What a world we live in.
