Our host for Outdoor Wednesday is Susan. Check out her outdoor pictures at http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/. You will also get to her participants' sites from there.
I was not planning to participate today because I am extremely busy. I am getting my mom ready and packed to go to St. Louis in 2 days, for my other sister's turn to watch her since I am going on a trip, so I am packing for myself too, not to mention getting all my Christmas decoration, shopping and wrapping done. On top of that, my mom got sick yesterday and you know when a 91 year mom gets sick, it makes us nervous. But amazingly, she woke up this morning normal. Prayers are so powerful, I tell ya!
But my new camera came and I got so excited that I just have to share some pictures with you. I bought, or actually depleted my Sony Visa rewards, to get a Sony DSC-TX1 digital camera which has a sweep panorama mode. I want to have it for my trip since we are cruising on the biggest ship of the world and I would like to capture its size and features as much as possible, on camera.
So to test it, I went out to take these pictures.

I think they are pretty cool, don't you? Thank you Susan, for allowing me to share these photos on Outdoor Wednesday and thank you all for coming for a visit.

Oh wow Christing, the pictures turned out gorgeous. I love how they really do cover a huge panoramic view. Of course you know that I think your yard is gorgeous. Hope to see you at the "Holiday Cloche Party" Friday. I know you're busy so if you can. Have a wonderful trip. Hugs, Marty

Very cool! Actually, I picked up my box today. Remember we have a post office box, and today was the first day I had the car in over a week. (We have another, a southern T-Bird that doesn't work here in winter so don't feel sorry for me :-)

Anyway, I love love love everything. I took pictures and am going to post on Pink Saturday, I think. I want to make sure more people visit. Will also have to go back and see what to do next.

Thank you so much. So sweet. So fun.

I hope your mama continues to feel good. She is such a doll, such a sweet picture of her... drawing the name, for the giveaway down a few posts below. She sure don't look 91! Beautiful lady. Your Holiday Mosaics are so pretty too.
