Pasty, with a little bit of color.

People get incredibly bored sometimes, looking at other people's pictures. But I took some pictures recently and I just have to post them. Humor me, okay?

I took the pics with my brand new USB microscope! How cool is that?

And please forgive me if I happen to be the closest thing to look at and take pictures of.

Something there is no shortage of in my house - cat food.

This is a wonderful thing called a spider vein. Ugh. It's on my leg and yes, I AM that pasty.

Embroidery on a top I was wearing.

I do not remember what kind of stone this is - but it is part of a bracelet.

Apparently sometimes part of my breakfast ends up on my shirt. Hence the piece of whole wheat bagel on my shirt.

Gross! A scratch on it's way to being healed from what else - a cat!

Part of a one dollar bill.

Cool! Some colors in the tattoo on my ankle.

Admit it - you want one now, don't you? A microscope, not a tattoo. Well maybe you want one of those too, I don't know. But the microscope is cool!

(I have gone back and taken out several exclamation points. You're welcome.)

A USB microscope? The mind boggles. Fun pictures though! I remember reading about the Dutch scientist who invented the microscope a few hundred years ago. Imagine his shock when he looked at the little microbes in a drop of water!

What a great microscope. I really, really do want one. Have you ever tried looking at several grains of colored sugar. Just like jewels.

That certainly was interesting!
I would be using it all day!
Happy New Year !

Fascinating - great word for it. I'm always on the look-out for something new to look at. The cats won't sit still long enough. :)

Small things are amazing. Hard for us to realize exactly what we are looking at. Thanks for sharing some interesting things.
