last night i woke up at 2:30 am with a horrible migraine headache.
so, i get home, take my excedrin and go to the den to try and stretch and relax and do things that i think might help me unwind.
now, backtracking, earlier in the evening, i got a message from someone in a group i'm in on facebook. we had a page with our favorite quotes and i had put mine as "live the life you've imagined".
also, before falling asleep i started reading a new book called "saved".
it has stories of animal rescues and the people the animals are now with....i read the preface and 1 story from this book before going to bed last night. i had also finished reading "the big leap" earlier in the day.
it's about taking your life to the next level and about how we have "upper limit problems"....that we have a thermostat that is set to let us only feel "so good" and how to go about breaking those barriers....sometimes when people have a good day or have hit a milestone they either start destroying their relationships or get illnesses or what have you.
so, of course in the middle of the night when i woke up with the migraine i started wondering if my migraine was caused from an "upper limit problem"....i had just had a great day off work, had time to plan a nice supper and everyone loved it and i had also gotten the laundry caught up, the dogs were calm, we had decided on what to do with the rest of the decorating scheme in the den....things were really starting to come together....it really couldn't have been a more perfect day.
now, i go back to bed and i have the oddest dream. i go out to my backyard and i have lonnie with me (lonnie is not that great with dogs he doesnt' know) and there is a rottweiler in our backyard. lonnie doesn't seem to mind him and goes back in the house. when lonnie is back in the house i go up to the rottweiler to see if he has a collar or tags on....he doesn't, but he starts talking to me
and then I woke up.
What does this mean?

Once again, I've been playing with my new Flip Video.
Playing on the swings!
One of the many beautiful flower beds...this one overlooks the pond.
More footage of the gardens.
This iris gardens.
Seldom seen footage of Cleopatra on the run....she's so cute when she runs!
This is "I think" the native garden display.

So, now that I messed around with my old camera being on the fritz for a month or so I broke down yesterday and got a Flip Video camera and also a new digital Cannon camera.....yeah baby...I was giddy from the whole experience!!!
Hope you enjoy the crazy little video that I made yesterday...my first one....of course it features the dogs.

If you have sound you can hear the birds chirping their early morning melodies.

Now, in the pics below, I think the first piece could make a great sky or water...going from dark to light.
