Mark and I have taken up hiking Sunday afternoons. We beg the kids to come with us and set off to the North Carolina Mountains.
On one of our adventures last weekend we saw this Heron bathing himself in the marsh. Because when I grow up I want to be a highly skilled photographer; I snuck between the trees and snapped.
Then I blew it! I was so excited I actually captured this photo – I squealed Ya!!! and scared him away.
My fondest, earliest memories are of the water. . . in the water. . . under the water.
with my eyes wide open . . . feeling the water move me
while I glided through – weightless pretending to be a Mermaid.
Ni Hao Y’all
These photos were taken with a disposable water proof Fuji camera ~ the day was partly cloudy to mostly sunny and perfect! ~ the first photo: I added black and white – I then added a little of the color back to the photo – the second and last photos are completely unedited
Stevie Wonder’s it again.
He bought himself a lathe
a few weeks ago: with a little carving here and there the things he is creating with it are simply. . . magical. If your a Harry Potter fan you may recognize this wand. It’s Luna Lovegood’s
It’s Stevie Wonder’s Birthday today.
He is 18!
I can’t help but think of that country song by Carrie Underwood. . .”18 years have come and gone. For Mama they flew by. But for me they drug on and on.” Then I have to laugh at myself because, I know he would hate that I have a country song linked to a post that has anything to do with him. But, what’s a Blogger-Momma to do when the words just fit?
