The Hunt…

For Elaine...

Yesterday was a full day. First, Katy Blogless and I went to Yarntopia! for their “it has been a year since we decided to open the shop” sale. All of the summer yarns are on sale at GREAT prices. (If you are in the Houston area, it is going on through Saturday, so GO!) 30% off Calmer; 40% off GGH Bali, and Katy got enough yarn for a sweater for under $40. Under $40! You can not beat a deal like that!

Then I came home and made my “Gee’s Bend Inspired” ATCs for the Houston ATC meeting, which happens to be at the same Cafe Express as the Central Stitch & Bitch. I drove to Elaine’s house and she drove the rest of the way, because we had some photo hunting to do at the same time. Before the meetings, we headed to the River Oaks Shopping Center for some Assignment: Houston photos. Then the meetings and dinner, followed by more shots at the River Oaks Theater and then a sign hunt for me. I love the creative spur that I get when I go on photo hunts with Elaine, and it always amazes me that while we are both shooting at the same place, our photos never look the same – we end up capturing different things all the time.

All in all, a great day. Many successful plans completed for me, which was a good feeling. I have just over a week before school starts, and a lot to get done by then. Today it is off to the North Harris campus to get books and meet with the advisor for my scholarship, then another sign hunt, and a quick stop at Twisted Yarns to see the Friday knitters. Then podcasting and possibly more photo hunting tonight. I have my eye on a prize, and I really, really want it.

Very nice echinacea! You really are good with the nature shots, you may have to become a master naturalist so you can i.d. what you shoot. They have a couple of chapters in the Houston area. Okay, AFTER you finish school. I gotta call Yarntopia and see what’s on sale!

Actually, I am pretty good with a lot of flowers (unless they are outside of my normal “regions” – then I might not know them); I told Elaine that I wanted to stop and shoot the coneflower, and this is the Purple Coneflower with a scientific name of Echinacea purpurea. (Yeah! I got it right last night!) I just forgot to label it when I posted it here.

In Biology in high school we had to gather and identify 20 wildflowers – we had to include leaves, stems and the flower itself. I got a 105 on the project and still remember many of the common names of them to this day.

Guess I have to admit that I like Biology after all…
