T-Stands for Coffee and Colors today

Helllllooooo! I'm not quite sure how this morning got away from me so quickly, since I was up early, as usual.  Must have gotten distracted by the beautiful sun rise while having my coffee on the patio.

The day begins.....street lights are still on!

Soon the colors begin..............

More colors...................the street lights are off now.
light enough to get a photo of my coffee and camera.

colors are changing..................

now come the yellows and oranges

this cloud fascinated me
It was a glorious morning sun rise!  Our patio faces due east, so if there are any clouds I get to enjoy these mornings. Yesterday I had my coffee on the patio and enjoyed the rain.....LOL!  This is southern California and that is how our weather quickly changes.
The photo of my coffee and camera are for Elizabeth and the T-Gang .

I was shooting the sun rise with my camera, but in all honesty the photos above are from my phone.  The camera seemed to wash out the colors and they didn't show as vivid.  My phone captured what I was seeing with my eyes..........is my camera obsolete now???  I admit I rarely use it anymore, must get back to picking it up..........but the phone is so much lighter and fits in my purse!! LOL!

Got to keep it short and sweet, I've managed to go from patio, to ordering business cards (more about that in a different post), to cooking breakfast.  I did managed to get dressed in between , but now I really have to get dishes done and kitchen cleaned up before my Bible Journaling friends arrive.  Thank goodness I have things already planned for that!

I'll pop around later today, or tomorrow morning.  Have a marvelous day!


  1. That _is_ a beautiful sunrise! My cell phone is my camera, but when I see a camera like yours I'm tempted to explore something a bit better. It encourages me that you got such good shots with your phone :) I look forward to hearing about your business cards. Sounds exciting! Happy T Tuesday

  2. Gorgeous photos-I really enjoyed all the photos-I don't have a smart phone-never did-so I still use my old digital camera and love it.
    Happy T enjoy your day Kathy

  3. There's nothing better than a beautiful sunrise to start the day, it's my fave time every day. Love the world coffee cup, too. Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  4. I am probably one of three people over the age of seven who STILL doesn't own a cell phone. That means all my photos come from my camera. My friend Scott has a cell phone that takes amazing photos, like yours.

    I love your sunrise shots and was happy to see your snow people mug, too. That's about the only snow you will see where you live, unless you travel to the mountains.

    Sounds like you have a busy day ahead, so I'll just stop and say we are SO glad to see you back at T this and every Tuesday.

  5. What a beautiful start to the day! The colours and view make me think how much I have to be thankful for 😁. Thanks for sharing and I hope you had fun with your friends! Wishing you a very happy T Day! J 😊 x

  6. Your photos of the sunrise look beautiful, the changing colours are a pleasure to see.
    I hope you had a good day and send you Happy T day wishes.

  7. what beautiful sunrise photos! I think the phone camera does such a great job- but a good regular camera is great for especially zooming out. Happy New Year and happy T Day too!

  8. A beautiful sunrise makes getting up worth it all doesn't it? I really enjoyed your photos. The changeable weather produces some beautiful skies. I saw a rainbow yesterday. The first one in ages.

  9. Wow! What stunning pictures. The colors are so beautiful and vivid. I have a nice camera but I rarely use mine. I agree with you about the cell phone cameras being smaller and portable. They have very good quality now.
    Happy Tea Day,

  10. Winter sunrises are so amazing, aren't they? These are gorgeous photos. What a nice way to start the day. And I hope it was a good one too. Happy belated T day. hugs-Erika

  11. what a wonderful sunrise! maybe i should get up earlier?;)
    happy t-day and have a great week, krisha!

  12. Amazing photographs thank you for showing those to all of us

    Hope T Day went well for you

    Love Chrissie xx

  13. My digital camera was small and easy to use, but I have been using my cell phone for years now.
    I LOVE sky pics!!! How gorgeous! :)

  14. Such beautiful sunrise pictures! Worth getting up for, certainly.
    I have a similar camera to yours and I never use it either. I bought it because I am a member of a photoclub and I am hoping to learn how to use it on manual. But I have been lazy. One of my new year's resolutions is to really start practicing. My only moan about using my iphone is, that I can't upload them to my computer, where I write my blogs. I have to upload to Facebook, then go to my computer, open FB and download the photo(s) quickly before anyone sees them and then delete them on FB. That's my system anyway. (cloud is full and they don't tell me how to delete as they want me to pay)
    Wow! You do Bible journaling. That is interesting. Please share some photos of that one day. I would love to see it.
    Happy T-Day,

  15. Your sunrise photos are truly spectacular. I seem to have a reverse problem as my iphone camera seems to wash out the sky photos. It is an older model phone so maybe time for an upgrade. Happy T Day

  16. Gorgeous sunrise and photos, Krisha. A very good friend is a reporter on local events for the regional newspaper. She told me she gets much better photos with her smart phone, but carries the big fancy camera to events so people will take her seriously - lol.

    Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen
