I love taking pictures. I am not a professional by any means. I am learning as I go. I have Nikon D80. I took these pictures at night in RAW format. I have just started to take photos in RAW. You have so much more control over the adjustments in Photoshop by shooting in RAW. However, they do take up so much more memory. But the end results make it worth the hassle. Let me know what you think.

This last photos if of the Tanglo tree in my gardens. It is loaded with fruit. We should be able to pick the fruit in a couple of weeks. They are so sweet! I feel very lucky to actually still have this tree. Last year when Hurricane Ike hit I just knew I would come home to no trees standing. We actually did pretty well. This tree did not have any limbs broken. The palm trees were the only trees that were actually damaged during the hurricane. But, we were able to save them. They were leaning over the pool. We had to straighten them and then stake them until they were established again.

Bella Boo....

This is Bella! She is HJ's baby.
Even hubby loves her. He won't admit it....but I have proof. Look at them snuggle. See her giving him kisses?
How could anyone not love that little face! She is a keeper. See her toe nail painted blue? HJ painted it but she would not be still for her to paint the others.

Family Time

We spent a great evening around our fire pit.

Hubby is stoking the fire so he can put on some pork chops.

And here they are....Yum!

BJ is enjoying the fire.

And Me....hanging out watching my hubby cook us some dinner.
Love this sun set over the pool and palm trees. It was an awesome evening and amazing weather!

The only things that would make it better was if HJ could have been there too! But we will have more evenings so she can enjoy it with us. She was at a band contest so wasn't able to hang out with us. Contest are over so we will make it up.

Help Me Rhonda....

Help, Help, Help me Rhonda.....I was outside scooping leaves out of the pool when something caught me eye. Hey, that leave is moving! Anytime things move in the pool, I get scared! Last time we had something moving in the pool it was a "Bull Frog"! UGH!!! Note.....I HATE frogs. And, I was in the pool swimming when my sister-in-law notice the frog. Anyway, back to the moving object in the pool. What is it? It's a ity bity baby mouse!

Poor thing must have been swimming for a long time. It finally got on the Kreepy hose. Whew! Saved by the hose!

Poor little guy.....He didn't make it!
