Singing in the Rain

I wish I were doing this at least. If this were smellivision I would add the scent of rain on hot grass.  I can smell it now.

For 30 Days

I love this video.  I have heard of the idea of doing something for 30 days to establish a habit but never for the pure enjoyment of it.  I have been making a list of things I would like to do for 30 days at a time.  Here are a few things I am going to try.  Write Fiction, Take Photos, Draw, Write Poetry, Meditate, Laugh, Bicycle, Knit, Cook a New Recipe, Eat Chocolate (ok lets not get carried away).  Some things I am not good at such as meditate (sit still quietly) or draw but that is the fun of it.  Who knows, maybe there is an artist locked up inside of me.  Perhaps I will be the next Rembrant?  I hope to expand my horizons by doing things I enjoy or always wanted to do. What things can you think of to do?  I would love to hear your ideas.

I have a thing for water and trees.  I especially love reflections and take lots of pics of them.  Here are a few.

Fishing for Smiles

About dusk on Friday night I decided to go to the Fairgrounds Park and take some photos.  Derek asked if he could bring his fishing pole. 

I was just getting ready to go walking when Derek snagged his first catfish.

He caught three with two of them being big enough to keep.  He lost several others.

We stayed until the Mama Ducks put their babies to bed.  One child always is reluctant to go to sleep.

With the last one tucked in they snuggled up and became quiet.  Mama looks relieved.

Good Night.
