We are in the middle of Summer, or shall I say the end, and last week wasn't as hot as the weeks before. It has been a mellow Summer lately. I've noticed a change in the light of day also, and I think Fall will be here before we know it. I have been thinking of my daughters, as school is starting up again. Nel is teaching her college students this Fall, but her class in online, and Jess will teach her elementary students in the classroom this school year. I think they have one of the oldest and most valued professions - being a teacher and shaping young minds to love learning is truly special.
One day last week, I looked across the street and saw an incredible sighting - a deer was standing in my neighbor's yard. I quickly got my camera and went outside. I tried to slowly take a picture, but was too excited, and it ran right past me and into the woods. It was big and strong, and I was surprised to see that it was a Buck!
These were taken in my front yard. I think this is a Robin, but not sure.
Oh, sometimes I will look over and see a pink rose growing in my garden, and it makes me smile. They aren't always like this; sometimes they turn out light, but this one was just right.
There was a farmer's market in my town at the end of July. Me and my son happened to be in town that day. I've been craving pecan pie, and when he saw they were selling mini pies, he went over and bought a pecan pie. Oh.my.gosh. it was the best.
The creek, end of Summer.
A cow farm near the creek.
There is a drive-in that's up the street from my house with a big tree that stands to the right of it, and someone carved a face on the tree. It's so cool and artistic, and I've been wanting to take a picture of it and finally did.
I can tell Summer is almost over, and I'm glad. Too hot for me. I am already starting to see Fall in little ways, and I am curious what it will be like here in the mountains.
