Tim has gone golfing for the day with Landon and a couple of friends. Hope they have the best time. I know I’m grateful for a day to myself. Have plans to get much done.
I feel so peaceful today, don’t know why. I’m just so relaxed and looking forward to a day of puttering in the yard, maybe sitting outside with a new book and a cold beer a little later on.
There is nothing weighing on my mind; I’m heading into the last 2 weeks of work before the summer break and all is good.
On the way home last night, about 9:30, the sun was setting and it was so gorgeous I just had to try to get some shots. Of course, camera still at home, (I’ve got to remember to take it with me EVERYWHERE I go!) so had to drive like a fiend to get home and get it. Then raced through town to find a high point. I don’t the shots are particularly good, but at least I got some. Experimented with different settings — hopefully next time I’ll know better what I’m doing.
Also, here a couple of shots of a bee in my poppies — I wanted to capture one of the big B-52’s, but the buggers wouldn’t come back around. Instead, I got one of the smaller, less spectacular type of bees — still, they’re amazing.
Hope all the Dads out there have a wonderful day — enjoy your time with your kids doing whatever it is that makes you all happy. Here’s a little video that kind of puts it in perspective (though it is a commercial for Sprite, it’s very well done). Enjoy.
Sorry, I couldn’t download the video — but if you go to YouTube and type in Sprite – Love you should be able to find it. Hope it works, because it really is a sweet little video.
