Where is that rain?

we were supposed to get it yesterday and today and it has been another gorgeous day instead. Not that I am complaining, I am loving it. I went in the yard today and took a picture of a living plant since I don't know how long. It's a nice change from shooting icicles all the time.
Yesterday I went out to lunch, it's been a long time since I did that. I met a couple of girls from Karate at Applebee's. We had a great time, it was so good to see everybody and catch up and just BS. I had this enormous glass of Green Apple Sangria, man was that good :) I took a few pictures, but the girls were very picky about what they liked. Am I glad I am not doing this for a living, people are hard to please :)
Aren't they just the cutest?

these girls look sweet but they could seriously kick your behind :)
There is one nice thing about the kids doing the school play, I don't have to pick them up until 4 pm because of practice which gives me a lot of free time.
We had karate in the evening, there were so many kids, it wasn't even funny. He is planning on going back to 2 kids classes, we'll see how that is going to work out. I told him that there is no way I can stay up there for 3 hours, which I would have to if Michael would be in the first class. I am so not doing that. He already said that worst comes to worst he will put him in adult class and Michael is actually excited about that. We changed the way we are teaching the younger ones, different and hopefully easier requirements in the long run, but for now it was utter confusion. They had no idea what we were doing with them.
Today was nice, like I said I took some pictures outside
I didn't touch this one at all
this is moss growing on a rock, I used my 90 mm for these shots :)

I know this one is blurry, even after using unsharp masks on it, but I really like the reflection in the drop. I am going to try again. Macro photography is really hard. Being so close you have to be totally steady which I wasn't. Even if my legs were steady (I was crouching), my hands were shaky for crying out loud. Then there was wind and the little branches kept moving and moving, that much for sharp shots. Fun though
I made this page out of the one shot

this one is from the walk the other day, I have to make a matching side with all the other photos I took

Isn't it funny? It's at a neighbor's, not my kind of decorations, but it was so cute how they were popping back out of the snow. That's probably why he didn't put them away, he couldn't find them! :)

Well, I better get back to making pages, I still have to do last week's 365 page or I will be further behind again...

Wonderful photos, Anke! More supplies for your fabulous layouts! Enjoy your spring weather. Those reindeer heads popping out of the snow are so funny and that water droplet, stunning!

Love the macro works. Good stuff. Your rain is down here in case you were wondering.

Never say Never!

Well, here I am creating my very own blog! I was always very sure I would never get into this blogging "thing", but here I am. I hope you will enjoy finding out a little about my not so interesting life!
