Sand patterns

I like gears- I
have always liked gears. I have never known what it is about a gear
that catches my eye- but they always do.

New Year, New Goal

It’s a new year, and with it, I am setting a new goal: One
photo, each day, all year. I’m a few days behind the new year- but
today seems like a good day to start. Frosted Post

Sandy feet

My little guy’s toes always make me happy.

Gumdrops & Fairy steps


Get the point?

I don’t know exactly why I’m drawn to thistles- perhaps their coupling of beauty & danger. I have spent hours looking at and capturing them from various angles & groupings.

The eye of the beholder

We were surprised to find this slug in the kitchen this morning.

His cuteness grew exponentially upon relocation. He definately belongs outside! It was the oddest thing to hear Jacob saying,”Um, there’s a really big slug in the kitchen.”. Yup- really bug, indeed.

We have no idea how he got in there- and why he came put of hiding for Jacob- four of us had been in & out of the kitchen all morning and none saw a slug- and it’s kinda hard not to notice four or five inches of slimey creature on the white cabinet!

I am glad we had a visit from our most definately uninvited guest this morning. His visit, and subsequent relocation, prompted me to take the tot out for a little nature adventure.

Trees were climbed, puddles were splashed, mud was enjoyed, ponds were visited, fish were fed, snails were discovered and pictures were taken. I will upload them as soon as I download them from my camera. The slug pictured here, and this post are brought to you from my phone.

For now…. Naps are to be had.
