Today I am thankful for ENERGY! I burned a lot of it today. After four hours of sleep, Eli woke up early and in turn got me up on my "sleep in" day.
So I just jumped in and got busy with my 'Music in May' project, and my layout for the Layout A Day challenge. I had both done by 9:00 a.m. and then I headed off to a neighbor's house to photograph her accordian for my "A" photo of the day.
After I got back to the house, I started washing the bedding, and getting everyone ready for a trip to the school carnival.
Mom wanted me to go to the green house with her today, so we decided to detour through the carnival for a few moments, so the kids could play. I'm thinking I need one of those things in the photo above. The kids would have played in there for HOURS if we'd have let them.
It was a busy place and we didn't stay too long, before we headed out to pick up some more plants for the garden.
We traveled through a Mennonite community and made a stop at one of their bulk stores. They even had scrapbooking stuff! I thought that was pretty neat.
To get there, we had to cross this highway in progress . . . personally, I don't think this is progress at all; but that's just my opinion.
On our way south, we spotted a field full of camels, so on the way back home, I found a spot off the side of the road, got out and took a few pictures. (This isn't something you see everyday around here. lol) As I was standing taking pictures at the fence, several cars slowed down, and when I finished and pulled back onto the highway, I noticed another car had pulled in, where I had been parked, so they too, could get out and take a picture. I thought it was rather humorous . . . kind of like a chain reaction.
We didn't beat the rain home, but I did catch a lull in storms and caught the faintest hint of a rainbow. It faded VERY quickly, so it's not easy to spot in the photo above, but it's there none the less.
It's been a busy, busy day and I'm hoping to get to bed at a decent hour tonight. Wish me luck!
