Julie - North Carolina - 8:30 to 9:15 a.m. yesterday

Oh my gosh y'all, I am still alive, and I'm so sorry I haven't been around for the last week. Things got so stressful here and yesterday was the most stressful of all! Nothing seemed to happen at the right time or in the right way. I didn't even get to bed until about 4:00 a.m. So anyway... My walk was the only peaceful time I had all day, and I owe it all to Cindy and Hayley for starting CF! Thank you, ladies! Please don't kick me out yet! :)

I walked back up the road to the cattle farm. Two of the three hay wagons had been emptied, but one was still loaded. It is incredible how something as light and wispy as dead grass can be made into something so huge and heavy. I also noticed how shiny the cows looked in the morning sun and humid air!

I cropped this picture up close so you can see the cow's tongue!

It must have rained a little during the night before. I took these three of the sky reflected in a puddle.

A few flower pictures. I didn't see until I got home and uploaded my pics that there's an ant crawling on the magnolia bloom in the top right corner. It made me chuckle!
I hope you're all having a good week! Today is my older son's first day of Kindergarten... he was crying his little eyes out when I left... but now... silence! (Well, except for the dryer.) I still have a ton to do today but at least I have a little bit of solitude to do it in! I really look forward to catching up on everybody's posts soon. The new layout looks great! The border of polaroids is so cute!

Wonderful and beautiful photos! Glad you had a small peaceful moment!

We've missed you, Julie. These are really great shots! I too love Magnolias and blue skies. I am reading your post about "silence" as Nicholas screams in the room beside me. We were trying the "nap by yourself" thing today. We've tried the "walk together, swim together, potty together" stuff. I thought "Nicholas nap alone" would be nice. So far--no good!

Again, great shots!

Julie, I'm glad you were able to get a peaceful walk in today. I love the cows, they're such gentle looking creatures.
The puddles shots are great too, as are the flowers.:)
Have a great evening!
