Plan on not making plans

You would think that at my age I would have learned by now that whenever I make plans for something they almost always fall through. Friday after my appointment I was going to take my camera to the dock and the beach and get some pictures. Well when I finished up with my appointment and went outside, it was raining. Just my luck. So, no trip to the dock or the beach. I headed home, which is roughly a 45 minute drive. Halfway home, the sun comes out and I discover that I don't have my prescription sun glasses with me anymore. That can mean only one thing, I somehow lost them at my first stop of the day, because I had them on when I went in (the sun was out then). Now not only did I NOT get the pictures I wanted to take but my mood has done a nose dive because I lost the glasses. I called the place where I had my appointment and asked if they had a lost and found. They did, told me they would look around for them and call me back if they located them. I haven't heard from them so I'm assuming they are gone for good now. Sometimes I could just kick myself.
The weather, from the time I got home till this post, has been beautiful. However, I lost my momentum Friday morning and haven't done anything I planned on.
What I did manage to do was play around with pse and make a couple things.
This was a picture of stones and shells that I took last summer. I took it on a plain white background. I extracted the shells and made a new background. I was going for something that looked like sand. This came pretty close. Not perfect but I got bored with it so I quit here

I made a few kaleidoscopes with Dazzling Reflections then opened them up in pse and made this.

Last but not least I did some minor adjustments on some pictures I took to use as textures. I put together a set of 9 different ones and was hoping that some of you might be able to use them.

You can download them HERE
So what's next? It's hard to say, but I can tell you that I'm planning on NOT planning
