Photo of the Week

O.K., so I didn't get to everything I wanted to do this week. I didn't post about The Sting yet (I promise it's coming), but I finally ironed out the trip details with my cousins and everything's booked. I don't really feel ready for either the trip or for school to start, but at least I got to see my new school in depth a little more yesterday.

I did get around to returning a jacket I ordered but didn't like. It was a few days ago, the first day after all the rainy days. I had to go up to the mall near where I used to work in a previous life, but it was an easy in and out. When I got back to the car, I noticed a leaf was sitting on the rear windshield. I approached it to pluck it off and toss it to the ground, but a closer look at it made me stop.

It looked like a heart. Was it a valentine from God? Or was Nature apologizing for dumping so much rain on my car? Whatever it was, it made me happy for some strange reason, so I snapped a photo of it on my phone and left the leaf to be worn off by the elements. It stayed on another couple days, I think, until I noticed yesterday after getting back from school that just a faint residue in the same shape remained.

I'd be more than happy to see it again another time.

I have to give some credit to the Picnik website--the cell phone camera shot needed a little color adjustment. But yeah, it turned out nice.

That's a sign from The Big Guy, no doubt :)

I'd like to think so, Bingley!

I love when little things like that happen. It really puts everything in perspective, doesn't it? It comes along, and you smile on the inside and realize that maybe things aren't quite so bad after all. It's such a lovely little reminder. :o) And, yes, I vote for it being a valentine from God!
