country days

Some days we miss living in the country, a lot! So it's nice to have family who live in the woods to go visit. Last week with my folks we had lots of weather - deluge rains and then bright crisp sunshine days. Other than the fair, we just hunkered down in the woods, with the boys doing a lot of riding on the golf cart and tagging along behind their PawPaw. A little bit of target practice, one perch caught, mucking around in the mud and in the ponds, checking hog traps, and a few westerns on the tv - a pretty wonderful fall break for a couple of young boys.

sometimes emotions run high

Mama to young boy at 5:30 p.m., after a few emotional days:

"So was today a horrible, no good, very bad day?"

"No mama, but the day's not over yet..."

technical difficulties resolved

The last couple of weeks I've been battling trying to get my computer to remember how to "talk" to my camera. Today they seem to finally be on speaking terms again.

In the meantime, the long-awaited rain has made the zinnias in the backyard very happy, which makes me very happy as well!
