I just love this shot. There is something about the top of the sunflower head that is interesting. This thing is HUGE. It is at least 18 inches across.
Here I am shooting up into the sun... so not the best shot. But you can see how many sunflower seeds can be harvested out of this baby.
My town is full of sunflowers. So that's our theme today... sunflowers and chit chat.
They remind me of Jack and the Beanstalk. This picket fence is chest high on me. (I am short.)
Yesterday was a wonderful day.
Max turned 22 officially. I ended my day at "beer church" as a friend calls it... buying him a pounder.
The place was hopping with people I know. Fun stuffs. I got hugs from people I had not seen in ages. Mostly minions, but some old friends as well. (Minions if you do not know are what StbX calls my ex-students.)
It was a sublime slice of small town life. Max did not need a dime. We in Dumb Potters Hell buy the birthday guy a glass... I was glad when Blue told me that she would take care of Max after I left. I knew he would have a safe bed a short walk away. I have a two beer limit myself.
The day was mellow and quiet. I spent it with Mr. Overnight. That was sweet.
My dad is home from the hospital. I did not kill his old dog... a major victory for me.
All is well on the family front. Phew!
The forest fire up here is under control. YAY! Our air again smells fresh. But we have had some spectacular sunsets from the smoke in the air.
Hats off to the guys and gals who make that happen
with their hard, dangerous work! Yay for firefighters!
As you can see... everything here is blue skies, sunflowers, hugs and smiles. No complaints from Anandagirl today.
Looking forward... I should be back to my normal blogging self now that things have calmed back down.
I work my first official day on Thursday. Hummmm...
Then I have a long weekend... which I am spending with Mr. Overnight. (Big grins there.) And... I'm posting ahead, so there shold be things to read here. Cool beans. I need to get into that practice for my school year.
What does the future hold? I don't know. Today I am content and that is a great gift. I am thankful. I hope that you are too... whatever you are doing.
