Stephanie Lake Mary FL, 7:20 - 8:00 AM

Today I am posting for 3 days. My boys are getting ready to go back to school on Monday, so we had meet the teachers, tour the schools, and supply list shopping to do this week. On Thursday, my husband Tommy dicided to take a walk with me. Do you know he never broke a sweat during the entire walk!!!! UGH I was soaked when we got home. Here are a few pics we took along the way. Tommy noticed the footprint in the sand, which I thought was spiritual.

Friday, Tommy was tired so i walked by myself. I listened to my usual Boston and Jimmy Buffet which kept my beat. I took some photos with my phone, but they didn't come out so good.


Today I was loaded and ready to walk. Ipod attached to my arm, bottle of water in one hand, camera in other, pedometer attached to waist band, keys, phone and paper towel. Today I listened to a variety of music, Michael Jackson, Nickleback, Usher, Zac Brown Band: Toes (awesome song a friend of mine turned me on to), Heaven Must be Missing an Angel, and Crazy by Patsy Cline.

I really didn't have any photo theme in mind today until I got home and looked at my pictures. My favorite in this college is the one in the bottom left. The sun is peeking through the tree and the photo of the hill. Just beyond that hill is my house.

This morning the clouds spiked my interest. and once I put them in a college, I thought they look real cool. The center photo is my favorite in this college It almost looks like the tree is touching the sky. It was realy pretty out this morning. A gentle breeze and blue sky. If only it was in the 70's it would be the perfect day. But good day for walking anyway.






This college is of things that I just saw. The middle/bottom picture reminded me of a snowman. Guess you could call it a Florida Snowman. The sign hanging on the door in the center just says it all. And of course had to take a picture of the frog and the motorbike. Two of my favorite things. The hose on the side of the house as been there all summer. I guess it has been waiting to be noticed, so I decided to honor it with a photo. I see this Kitty every morning. He seemed to want his picture taken this morning and the Old Bug, well just because.

I hope everyone is enjoying this. I sure am. Once the kids go back to school, I will be venturing outside my neighborhood and walking with Cindy. That will be fun.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.
Happy walking.

Stephanie,
I absolutely love your pictures! You have been busy:)
The sky collage is so tranquil.
The sunlight coming through the tree is magical. I have been drawn to photographing the Florida sun lately too.
Cute FLorida snowman!

I can't wait for us to go walking together!

Have a great weekend! We're going school shopping-yay!

P.S. I changed the template of the blog to a narrower format. The text along side the pictures won't fit anymore. sorry:( I liked the way it looked but Hayley informed me that on some computer monitors the blog was too wide and getting cut off.

I forgot to mention, I think it is so cool that Tommy got in on the action and noticed the footprint! Very cool!

Stephanie,
I love your photos more and more with each post. You even do a wonderful job with a phone camera. My camera is not quite so clear.

I especially love the foot print. Where were you walking? It looks like the foot belongs at the beach--no shoes!

Keep up the great work!
