Morning Dew

Gosh I tried SO HARD not to add another picture of Charlie :) But I finally decided...I have so many good ones of him that I want to share, that I am going to have a Charlie Week NEXT week :) Mon - Fri...all Charlie...and his cute little nut...and his big bushy tail...and his fat, plump squirrel body :)


Well, that is unless I absolutely love the theme chosen for next week lol but I can always add a picture for the theme next Saturday...so we'll just see :)

Anyways...since I am on Spring Break...well...it's pretty much over now...but I have been setting an alarm so I can wake up early instead of sleeping in until 12!!! I feel like it completely wastes my day. AND...although it is tough for me to do..I have been attempting to go to bed much earlier than 12 :) I mean...school starts THIS MONDAY !! Darnit. ;)

So I woke up around 8:30 AM...and I WAS going to add another picture of Charlie...but when I looked outside the grass was SOO pretty!! It was all sparkly...and I had to get some pictures :) 66 to be exact. I went kinda picture crazy...but I decided to go with this one..because of the pop of orange and the faded background. Enjoy! :)
so pretty... color vibrant is very good!
cant wait for Charlie's Week =)

Nice shot. Looking forward to Charlie Week. Do you compensate him for his time? Maybe some special nuts for him to snack on? And do you think you could have come up with a few more tags? :-)

posted April 10th, 2010

This is extremely beautiful, Lauren. Love it to bits.

so pretty--- sparkly comes to mind :)

Gorgeous and a little surreal/mystical. I could see this as a fantasy book cover, actually. :)
posted April 10th, 2010  
Great shot!
posted April 10th, 2010  
beautiful! I love it!
posted April 10th, 2010  
Amazing shot.
posted April 10th, 2010  
It's so funny because when I got up at about the same time I thought the same thing. But I didn't grab my camera....I was too lazy to do that! haha! So, I'm glad that you took this picture and were able to show the morning dew...but I think it was really frost. I hope all the flowers are okay. Yes, it's back to school for us on Monday and then 7 weeks to go. Summer will be here soon.
posted April 10th, 2010  
Oh this is really really pretty! Kinda dreamy. Well shot. :)
posted April 10th, 2010  
So pretty, i love the colours! i also cannot wait for the Charlie Week! :)
and it's funny, i've been getting up at midday and sleeping later than 12am and thought the same thing. however, i really haven't been doing anything about it haha :)

The background is the best!

Very pretty! I love all the little droplets.
posted April 10th, 2010  
Lauren, You said I've made the popular page?!?!? Two days in a row. Oh boy. How will I deal with all this celebrity? Maybe it is time for a self portrait to see if I can get my swelled head in the pic. :-)
posted April 10th, 2010  
omg, lauren, this is simply captivating. thanks for this!
posted April 10th, 2010  
Well done!
posted April 10th, 2010  
Mrs. Smith - I think the flowers survived...I went out later to get a bunch of pictures...although it wasnt in my backyard, it was at highland park :) me and some friends went there to hang out. Well...for me I just took pictures lol but still had fun! and yes...school Monday...but 7 weeks isnt TOO bad :)

Her - thank you!! and I'm so happy you're excited :) :) Charlie is too.

Karen - you CAN do it!!! :)

Kathleen - thanks! same to you :D

rayswrld - yes! you did! it made me happy :) because I know you truly appreciate it. and you SHOULD do a self portrait!!! all I can see of you is your forhead in your profile picture because the camera blocks your face. :)

thank you so much everybody! :D
posted April 11th, 2010  
Lauren, this is such a beautifully brilliant shot, it just makes me smile.
Everyday you create such a unique image. Everyday, I look forward to YOUR pictures ( and have felt so bad, missing them the last couple of days! ), maybe even most of all ( though I love so many others, as well! ;-).
My daughter and her fiance started this project today ( under my followers/following - Ian&Kelsey ), and I am so happy..since I can look forward to seeing their daily images from t he UK. Anyway, I told my daughter al about you, so I hope they follow you, too!
posted April 11th, 2010  
This picture is SWEET!!! I absolutely love the drops of dew on the grass!! Well done, you're really good! :)
posted April 11th, 2010  
Barb - thank you soo soo much! that means so much :) and I will DEFINITELY follow them! Is your daughter as wonderfully wordy as you? ;)

Kathleen - wow! thank you! :)
posted April 11th, 2010  
wow this is gorgeous! stunning bokeh
posted April 11th, 2010  

Lauren...everything you say to me, I could say back to you.
I feel like I understand YOU so well, too!
And I greatly admire EVERYthing that you do.
I know that I certainly didn't have the wisdom and understanding at 17, that you have, and I've worked with young people all of my life, so I REALLY know how truly unique you are!
( though, I feel really lucky, because my kids are pretty uniquely fabulous too, as are their partners...but OH...I am just bragging, now! Hee )
posted April 11th, 2010  
Hey, bragging is okay when you're a mother. ;)
and I can only sit and smile to what you have written back :)
posted April 11th, 2010  
PS..no....Kelsey is nowhere near as wordy as me, not in written form, anyway ( And that's a good thing. ) .....though, she HAS written and starred in her own play, which was awesome!

Dr Suess said..."So the writer who breeds more words than he needs, is making a chore for the reader who reads." Sometimes I think he wrote that just for me! ;-)

Anyway, Kelsey and I can certainly talk up a storm when we're together, or on Skype.
Ian is an amazing writer, so you might see him writing a lot.
posted April 11th, 2010  
love your close up especially the water drops hanging on the grass. it is absolutely a perfect picture as all of yours are. so we are looking forward to a week of charlie wonderful he is so cute.
posted April 11th, 2010  
Gorgeous composition! Everything really does sparkle! What a lovely way to welcome the day! Great shot Lauren!! :)
posted April 11th, 2010  
wow wow WOW! this is so amazing
posted April 11th, 2010  
It is amazing.
posted April 11th, 2010  
Barb - that's interesting to know!! nevertheless...I am looking forward to follwing them. are they alternating days or something?? I think Ian is the one who wrote about the first photo. am I right? They seem like such a cute couple :)

bruni -you are just too kind bruni. I cant smile anymore than I am at the moment. that is how big of a smile I have on my face. I think soon I will need to have surgery..to get it removed. I have been smiling WAY too much lately because of this site lol and I am glad you are looking forward to a week of Charlie :) I am too.

Bonnie - ahh! that means so much Bonnie :) :) I thought it was a wonderful way to start off the day too. so beautiful :)
posted April 11th, 2010  
Well, Kelsey took the picture today, but I think it's really going to be mainly Ian's project. And yes, he did the writing today.
They ARE very cute!
posted April 11th, 2010  
Absolutely beautiful!

And this picture made the popular page. No matter how they choose those pics, monkeys or bees, it belongs there. And you seem to be very popular so it fits.
posted April 11th, 2010  
A couple more tags: blue or purple, and bokeh. I say also throw in squirrel and make people wonder if they search by tags. :-)
posted April 11th, 2010  
What a lovely pattern this made! You always have such a marvelous way of caturing things in your viewfinder! ...you know me...looking forward to a week of Charlie! I love that he's so individually special to you!
posted April 11th, 2010  
Ray - HAHAHAHAHHAHAAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA well all be darn...you thought of more tags ;)

Louise - he really is :) It makes me so happy that people are looking forward to a week of Charlie!! I hope he's out again...and that I catch him. I hope to get some more funny shots ;)
posted April 11th, 2010  
Wow, this is amazing!
posted April 13th, 2010  
great shot, and i love charlie (be it boy or girl) keep them coming!!
posted April 14th, 2010  
Oh lawdy!
This is so great! I adore the bokeh.

You should definitely put something bigger to focus on next time, that'd be super awesome.

But nonetheless, I still adore this.
Great job girl!
posted April 14th, 2010  
Wow this the gorgeous!
posted April 15th, 2010  
I think this a fab! The colours are great and i feel like it is twinkling at me! A great way to start the day.
posted April 16th, 2010  
I love this!!!!!
posted April 17th, 2010  
THAT is stunning!
posted April 25th, 2010  
Great pic!
posted April 25th, 2010  
wow, FABULOUS bokeh. This makes me wanna get up early everyday. Sunrises and sunsets really are the best time to get beautiful light. Plus the DEW! gorgeous. I actually have been getting up early a few times each week, but it's only because I'm meeting one of my friends at the gym, so it's not like I have time to take pictures... This makes me wanna get up early on the other days too, though, when I usually sleep until I only have half an hour to dress, eat, and skip along to class.

@briannaleigh - mannn I really need to start working out. but I'm sooooo unmotivated! I'll run one day and say I will for the rest of the week. every day. but nope. that never happens lol
yeah there are definitely benefits to getting up early. I love early morning dew. or frost... depending on the season it is :)
posted March 12th, 2011  
The ONLY thing that keeps me working out is that I meet with my friend Angela. Seriously. That's the ONLY thing. On the days we don't meet, I sleep until it's time to leave for class. Then I just roll out of bed and go to class. I'm just as unmotivated, lol.
posted March 14th, 2011  
@briannaleigh - so I need to find a work out friend in college youre saying? I agree :) I'm kind of like that right now in calculus... the ONLY thing getting me through is my friend Emily. and starbucks :) teeheheee. seriously... having a friend do it with you is FOR SURE more motivating.
posted March 15th, 2011  
lol, I think everyone (no matter what age or stage in life) should have a work out buddy. :) Ahhhh, calculus... I remember calculus... My best friend, Lisa, and I did everything together our senior year. When our calculus teacher had us do group projects with assigned groups, she put us together because she knew we were best friends. She claims that it was because she wanted all the partners to be balanced so that it wouldn't end up with one person doing all the work, but I know it's ACTUALLY because of the best friend thing. :)
posted March 15th, 2011  
@briannaleigh - myyyyy math teacher is more the opposite. she would rather us work with people we dont know so well... which I think its pretty stupid because I KNOW who I work best with and those happen to be people I'm closer to... whatever, I get by ;) but your math teacher seems coooler :P
posted March 16th, 2011  
lol, :), I'd have to agree with you. My math teacher was SUPER cool. Most teachers normally split up the usual groups. And that was okay, sometimes, mainly just for things in class. When you're working outside of class, I think it's better to work with people you know. You're almost done with high school anyway, and you'll probably be able to pick all your partners in college. ;)
posted March 16th, 2011  
@briannaleigh - oooh boy. college. that's a scary thought. hahaha time flies. *sigh*
posted March 16th, 2011  
No, no, no, it's not scary, I promise!!! You'll love it! Time will keep flying, though, so keep living in the moment. :)
