O.k. so they aren't amazing...
but they are pretty and relaxing.
It had been a very dry summer up in this part of Pennsylvania
so the stream was running low and slow.
We have seen it overflow its banks
and rush dangerously
on its way.
This is much better.
The mist rising off the water was my inspiration.
I always love misty photos that other people take.
Just wanted to see if I could capture it.
I was thinking I would just stand in the
stream for a while until something began
tickling my toes.
I don't think I would like one of those
pedicures where the fish eat the dead skin off.
Have you heard about those?
Suddenly the views are from the bank
of the stream.
I was trying to capture the water droplets.
It seemed that every time I would get one in focus it would drop
to the ground.
We are home again and life continues
on its merry little way.
We had a very fun day with our church family yesterday.
Katie's family hosted us for the afternoon.
The dads challenged the youngsters in a game of
The dads lost but not by as much as was expected.
After the game the players were rewarded with
homemade ice cream.
Susanna loves to play with flavors
and did a wonderful job creating
Oreo ice cream.
My friends Sue and Ruth joined me in a
watermelon seed spitting contest.
We had a blast.
They said I won but I think it was just
because it was my birthday and they were being kind.
I did manage to shoot rapid fire with two of them.
Hey...have a great day.
I'm back in the candle kitchen.
Cooking up fun candles to fill orders.
