Today I'm thankful for sweet tea . . .
I spent a good portion of my day sitting in front of the computers, cleaning Dave's old laptop out for Bayleigh, while I posted music (I'm on the letter "T") to facebook. I'm not used to staring at a computer screen all day, so it was rather trying, and I have a lot left to do.
At 6:00 p.m. we headed off to Bayleigh's baseball game, only to find out that we had a by this week, and she doesn't play until next week. We had dropped Eli off at my mom's to play, so Dave, Bayleigh and myself headed off to Mr. Ed's to grab a few .70 cent ice cream cones, and then we headed to the grocery store to pick up a few items. On the way there we saw some geese headed south . . . (*I have Dave trained to slow down (when at all possible) and roll the windows of the vehicle down, when I'm attempting to take pictures. lol)
and I caught a few more glimpses of sunshine this afternoon!
The sun just kept on shining through the rain . . .
but I never was able to see any rainbows.
When we got to the grocery store, I sat in the car with Bayleigh, while Dave shopped (I dislike shopping . . . which is probably strange, since I'm a female and most females live to shop. lol).
On the way home we saw a ground hog by the side of the road. Dave was nice enough to turn around and drive back so I could snag a few photos. (Thanks honey!) This guy was a little bashful, and he was eating that little bushy plant to the right.
It finally quit raining on us, as we made our way home.
So Bayleigh changed her clothes and she and I went to grandma's house. She . . . much faster than I.
My mom's Peonies are starting to wither, but they still smell WONDERFUL.
Eli was riding his tricycle when I walked around to the porch. He and Bayleigh were supposed to stay the night at grandma's, but Bayleigh ended up wanting to sleep in her own bed tonight, so grandma brought her back home.
While I was at mom's I goofed around with my 75-300mm lens. (Actually all of these photos but the first one was taken with that lens.)
It's nice to try the limits of your lenses and capture things you normally wouldn't be able to capture with a regular kit lens.
But this lens, has it's limitations too. I'd love to get a few more lenses to play with, but I feel like I need to master the ones I have, first.
It's been another busy day, but since I don't have to worry about school . . . I plan on sleeping in again tomorrow. I'm going to enjoy the rest of the week and get back on schedule Monday. At least now I have a little more flexibility in the mornings, and if I want to sleep in, I can! I'm also thankful for Summer Vacation!
