Read, nap, repeat.

Yesterday was another lazy day. I read until I couldn't keep my eyes open, then I napped for a bit. When I woke up I would read again until I couldn't keep my eyes open again. I went back and forth between reading my kindle and reading blogs. You know, so I had a little more variety in my day. It was one of those kinds of days that was perfect for it. Sort of dark and dreary with a little bit of rain thrown in.

There was one other thing I did yesterday. I did a little playing around with a new picture of Gibbs.

This is the original.

I took out the white cord in the background then darkened and blurred it. I sharpened Gibbs and gave his eyes a little bit extra pop.


Then I thought I would try cropping it in closer.

Then I tried it in black and white.


He doesn't appear to be happy with any of them.

It's a good thing...

...I didn't make any plans for this vacation. So far I have done nothing. I'm feeling like such a slug because I have absolutely no energy or ambition to do anything.

At least I convinced myself to get a few more pictures ready for a blog post. Back to the parade.
There were old cars


Old tractors being driven by old men.



And of course there were marching bands.

There used to be several school bands that marched in this parade but the last couple years there have only been two. The one pictured isn't the local school band. This is from the next town over. The kids from the school here were wearing black shorts and shirts and these kids looked more like a band so they get to be on the blog.

I also heard that there was only one girl who ran for fair queen this year. I can't help but wonder if our little fair isn't losing it's appeal.

Day 1

Other than the parade, day one of my vacation was very uneventful.

There was no clowning around whatsoever. At least not by me.

Notice the sign on the side of this ones shoe shine box. She had a flashlight that she shined on your shoes and that was her super shoe shine.

If that doesn't get your goat maybe this will.

You can't tell by the picture but not only is this goat pink but it's a glittery pink.

The rest of the day was spent snacking and napping. A headache set in after the parade and I had no energy to do anything.

I have more pictures from the parade, maybe I'll show  you more tomorrow.

Oh what a feeling

Walking out of work at 2:00 yesterday was the highlight of my week. I had considered going to the fair last night but after I had my dinner I just didn't feel like doing much of anything. I did however take a walk down to the fair on Thursday. I made one trip around and then sat and listended to the band that was playing.

This morning will be the parade so I'll be sitting out in my front yard with my camera. After that who knows what I'll do.
