Straight Out of the Camera Sunday

Time flies when you are having fun and here it is Sunday already which means doing Straight Out of the Camera Sunday, a meme from Murrieta 365. There are two rules: 1) photo must be taken by you, and 2) no tweaking. Cropping is not considered "tweaking."

This the third weekend of the month or the Fredericksburg Trade Days are in session. When I first called my friend this Thursday about going, the sun was shining and it was deliciously warm but not too warm! Old Man Winter did not want us to get too excited because a huge rain storm came in Friday night along with high winds and a much cooler temperature. We almost cancelled but decided to go to Johnson City, 14 miles down the road, for lunch with the hope that the winds would die down and the sun come out. It was not to be.

We had fun anyway because we went to our favorite cafe in Johnson City, The Silver K. The food is great. I had Caesar salad with grilled chicken, the house Caesar dressing on the side, and a cup of baked potato soup. My friend had one-half of a sandwich of sliced turkey with avocado on toasted fococcia bread as well as a cup of the potato soup. Gad, it was delicious.


Since it was too cold to walk around the booths at Trade Days, we went to an antique store where I found the ugliest Christmas tree I've ever seen. Isn't it dreadful?


Now if you want to see pink on a tree, the red bud trees are "budding." lol Spring is here; the weather just doesn't know it yet.

Pop over here to see more SOOC photos.

Until next time, God bless.

PS: I'm on dial-up since the broadband is down for some reason. Even with optimizing the photos it took forever to upload. I had to do one at a time because when I tried to upload the three photos and the logo, my computer froze. It still took forever. Nothing like getting totally spoiled with speed. :D

Hey I have a tree just like that...;) We don't have buds on our trees yet up here in New England but soon.

Ain't it the truth? We get used to speed on downloads and when it goes away, it's a good reminder of how much better computing is when you don't even have to think of it. That lunch sounds great, and oh yes, HAPPY SPRING! :-)

The tree falls in with the silver tree that my parents put up when I was a child. I do like the red bud trees tho...I'm glad spring is coming.

Too bad about the weather, but it seems you had a grand day, in spite of the rain and cold. Love your photos; hate the pink Christmas tree.

Hi!
Great shots! I kind of like the pink Christmas tree. Reminds me of Charlie Brown's Christmas tree. Have a great day!

Sounds like fun, even if the weather didn't behave that well. It's the first year in three years I haven't been in Hill Country (Leakey, specifically) for spring and summer...so sad!

Love the red bud tree! I notice the trees were getting flowers and foliage this morning on the way back from church.

I hear you on the speed of dialup!

Back again...

Just letting you know that I've moved my blog, Blahwg! There is a link to the new location on the old page. Might as well UN-follow the old one... I won't be posting there anymore. Didn't want to lose you.

Great pics, I love those gorgeous pink blooms. Our tree are giving us colors too.

I almost fell off my chair laughing when I saw the pink Christmas tree. When I was in my early teens my dad decided we should have one of the new colored foil trees, we had no idea he had picked out a pink one! He thought his daughters would love it. We did because he picked it out for us.

Lunch sounds yummy.
