UPDATE and today, out and about! Plus one photo from yesterday that Leland saw and wondered why it wasn't in the blog post

UPDATE: I managed to sleep from about midnight through 6:15 a.m. Hooray! I felt like getting out and about, too. I hope this trend continues.

First, here's the photo that Leland wanted me to be sure post. I took it while sitting in my aluminum folding lawn chair. There's an small tree, some sort of evergreen, between the sidewalk and the low wall alongside the pawn shop's parking lot. I really like how it turned out. What do you think? A-OK? Leland, thanks for reminding me to post it!

Around 11 a.m. today I walked down to the Blue Diamond and sat down at the little picnic table they have at their backdoor where employees take a break. I rested, then continued to the corner, turned east toward home and detoured through the bar's front door. I sat at the bar on a high stool and enjoyed a side salad with ranch dressing. I drank two glasses of water.

Then, I succumbed to a craving I've had for over a week, for a brownie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. They warm the brownie a bit, put the ice cream on it and drizzle the whole thing with chocolate syrup. I feel like a new woman, ha, ha! Plus, I don't have any leftover brownie or ice cream in the apartment, which, believe me, is a good thing!

After I sat outside on the pew in front of the Blue Diamond for a little while, I continued east on Sandy. I stopped to take this photo so that you can see the rose bushes beside the Silver Lining Pawn. The smell so good!

I sat down to rest on the bench in front of the pawn shop and took this photo. I love these balloon facsimilies! I rested there, then continued walking east until I came to the low wall around the bioswale on the corner. I sat there for a couple of minutes before walking over to the Albertina Kerr thrift shop in back of the big building.

Once I crossed the street and before I continued to the thrift shop, I noticed these beautiful flowers and decided to try getting a photo of them that I liked. I've cropped this one and really like how it turned out. I'm very excited about my new camera, which, by the way, is no heavier than my not-quite-full purse.

One more, cropped to let you see it better. I'm thrilled with this photo, y'all. Thrilled!

You are welcome for the reminder. I hope that I didn't spoil today's post by mentioning it yesterday. Were all the pictures posted today taken with the Olympus? They are great! I especially like the flower shots. Oh and the camera with a battery, a memory card and the lense you have weighs 1.66#. I looked it up on the website.

Leland, honey, you didn't spoil anything. You reminded me that I'd left it out yesterday. The only photo taken with my iPhone on today's post is the side salad. The rest are with the Olympus. Glad you liked the flower shots--I did, too! Thanks for that info on what it weighs!

That first shot works beautifully, as do the other plant shots.

I wouldn't mind having that dessert!
