Recent treats:

     Perhaps because this has been such a wet summer, I've noticed an abundance of tiny toads lately. In fact, on Thursday, I had to kick two of them out of my apartment! Here's a photo of one I spotted today so you can see how small they are. Adorable!

     Friday evening was shopping night, and on my drive back home I was regaled by a simply stunning sunset. It wasn't colorful, but it was extremely dramatic, with intricate, back-lit clouds and tons of crepuscular rays/godrays. It was just amazing.

     Pleased in my thinking about upcoming book 5 progress to realize that the way my timeline falls out means I won't have to start writing 'Discoveries' in order to finish book 5. Glad for that, as I haven't gotten around to doing much prep-work for it so far this year.

     More fun making avatars this weekend! Above is the waterfall one I made this morning, and I also made a mountain one using the oft-seen lake applet. Here's a bigger version for my mom to see if she recognizes the location!

The toad is really tiny. Are they baby ones?
The waterfall is sure pretty. Is it from one of the trips?
Thanks for posting the bigger version of the mountains. It looks like
the Grand Tetons.

Yes, I'm guessing they're just a week or so past the tadpole stage. =)

The waterfall is Hidden Falls in the Grand Tetons.

And yes, you got it! That morning by Jackson Lake when the water was super calm and the mountain reflections were staggering.

Wow, that is teeny tiny! I do hope they don't invade your apartment. They'd be a pain to get out from under you fridge.

Seems like a weekend for spectacular sights from nature, what with those gorgeous icons and the sunset.

Haven't seen any inside this weekend, which is just fine by me! My cats would definitely notice if they were hopping about.

I'm getting excited to see mountains again, and pouncing on avatar ideas I come up with, since I still have 60 spaces to fill. =)
