07/02/10 - The Ceiling
When I couldn't access the internet yesterday morning and they said the fix time would be and hour, I headed to Fuquay-Varina with Joey (Johnny was in camp) to run a few errands. I got to thinking that it would be fun to go to the bakery in town that was in the old Varina section, but I found out they were closed. So, I drove down Main Street and found The Sticky Boy Bread Co. Cool! It had been a while since I'd been in a bakery. Somehow in this area it's just not like up home even when people from up home make the food. Anyway, Joey and I were just delighted with the smells and sights inside. I got an Armadillo Frappe (caramel and chocolate and something else), a slice of lemon poppy seed cake with cream cheese frosting, a real pretzel, a cinnamon sticky bun with more cream cheese frosting, and a loaf of multigrain bread. Joey and I sat and enjoyed the frappe and the cake, and I took in the inside of the old converted building. I was just fascinated with the ceiling. Joey asked me why/what I was taking a picture of. I explained that they don't make ceilings like this anymore:-)
I did an HDR and then an equalize filter again. A more original shot is here:
My real favorite shot from yesterday:
It was wow this and can we try that and did you see that Mom? and can we get some of that and... Joey appreciates his food:-)
I started to say something yesterday and held back, but I just can't see going 9 days and not saying anything. Joey and Johnny left with their dad today to go to NY to see his family. This is a first on so many levels, and I am incredibly sad. It's probably best if you don't comment back on this specifically. Only them coming home will help. I just needed to say that I'm not feeling myself. It's been hard for me to do my normal routine for several days now including my pictures.
Beautifully cooler and clear here today...refreshing when I walk out the door.
