July blogging challenge - Little piece of my day

It was one of those days where you're too busy for your liking, but yet, you're not willing to give up any part of the day.  But I still stopped to smell the flowers so to speak.  Gotta love the kind that grows wild in the ditches of Iowa (much like some of us old-timer country kids- lol).

Silence.. for a little while longer! Photo Challenge

Silence - for the moment.  The football field and the sled are empty for now except for a few robins and me. Hard to believe in a couple of short months it will be football season again.  But for now, I'm more than willing to enjoy the green grass, the cottonwood flying, and the dog days of summer...

Drink up, Little Girl - Photo Challenge

Okay, so you were probably expecting alcohol when you saw "drink up" but I gotta say, she's cuter.  Thanks to our friends, I watched this one demolish a cake and then slurp up her birthday milk.  Too freaking adorable.

Photo challenge - flowers (on the perfect date - lol)

Flowers - Even though we are just now getting our first taste of spring on APRIL 25th, I'm past ready for summer.  And with summer comes good times, good smells, and good things to look at.  Here's a good reminder from last summer!

photo challenge -cold is for the birds

Sure, I'd love to be posting gorgeous spring photos, but as they say, winter is for the birds!  It's April, but it's snowing in Nebraska so I figured I might as well go with my favorite winter bird:  Mr. Penguin.  He always looks a little cranky just like me and he walks wide.  Again...

photo challenge - pet peeves

This week's theme is pet peeves.  My list is too long to even begin to count:  slow drivers in the fast lane, dirty socks left next to the recliner, unparented children, having to pay taxes while other people do nothing and get money from the government.  Needless to say, the list is endless but probably at the very top of it is cleaning!  There are few things in this world that I like less than cleaning and it pisses me off that those dust bunnies start coming back the second you finish collecting them.  Damn those beasts!  And tell me you don't agree! :)

Photo Challenge - One. And done...or not.

One - toadstools are a dime a dozen around here, but I can't help photographing the intricacies of them.  The texture and lines are amazing.  The variation between summer and fall makes all the difference, too.  You can go from ruffly dress textures to volcanic eruptions.
