Brain-dead

Hello…. I’ve been downloading things like Photohop Elements 8 and textures and actions for two days, plus viewing tutorials on said programs, and…my brain is fried. As usual, I’m trying to cram in everything as fast as possible, because I’m so ready to learn something new. It’s just my way.

I’m realizing now that it’s a learning curve and I need to slow down and do one thing at a time. This will require huge amounts of patience on my part. Not easily accomplished. I always thought of myself as a patient person, but…maybe not.

Since everyone is probably sick of seeing flowers on here (I know I am!) I’m putting up a few pictures I took on our honeymoon in Spain last year.  I had never been, and neither had my husband, so away we went. I kind of wish I’d taken him to France, because I’m fluent in the language, but I did OK with my Spanish.

Here’s a shot of a side street in Sevilla in southern Spain:

The thing I liked most about Sevilla was that orange trees were growing everywhere. The colors of the buildings were beautiful too.

We did tons of walking, because our hotel was a mile away from the main sites and there wasn’t a lot of public transportation, except for some trolleys near the cathedral. We were only there for a weekend, so didn’t really have time to figure out the bus routes. And we needed to walk off all the paella!

I love the way this building looks in the setting sun:

Right after I took this picture, we had ice cream at the most beautiful little cafe with lots of dark mahogany wood trim and old-fashioned tile. The coffee ice cream was the best we’ve ever had. Hands down.

My poor husband had kind of a hard time with the meal schedule in Spain. Many places wouldn’t even serve us until 9 p.m., so we’d go to tapas bars, but never knew how much to order. One time we ordered a tapa that seemed to translate as “lasagna with apples.” I even looked it up on my little pocket translator. Sure enough, it was lasagna with meat sauce in between layers of sliced apples. Bizarrely good. Oh, it was enough to serve an army too. No dinner that night.

These pigeons were perched in the old walls outside the Real Alcazar, the royal palace in Seville, built in the 1500’s.

I loved the gardens at the palace and we spent a lot of time just wandering around them. A very cool oasis in the middle of the city.

This building was very near the Alcazar…the light in Seville is really beautiful.

 Thanks for stopping by….
