We spent last Friday working in Kansas.
About 10 miles northeast of us the land goes flat.
We see field after field of purple flowers
soon to be tilled and turned into fields of corn.
It was a beautiful, short sleeve, kind of day
with sunshine and shadows.
The day was perfect for a long drive
with the windows open,
listening to my one of my favorite playlists
of oldies. Cruising to K.T. Oslin,
Beach Boys, Elvis and Roy Orbison.
A day for meeting up with friends,
to sit outside and enjoy what
Mother Nature is creating.
And... to climb a tree.
Saturday, we headed southeast
through the Ozark Mountains to the lake.
It was another gorgeous day, sunny and warm
and windy, very windy.
A day for working outside
with Big Boy toys.
And our little boy
to discover the camera and
take his first "selfie".
His curiosity is so much fun.
We headed home through wind,
at times gusting up to 60mph.
Then we hit the edge of the storm
just 15 minutes from home.
By the time we pulled in our driveway
this was our view to the east.
A double rainbow.
It was still raining.
We were so close to it,
I could only get one corner of the rainbow
in my camera view finder.
Our local newspaper editor
a wonderful photographer,
posted this view on their facebook page
Mother Nature is presenting a beautiful spring.
I have enjoyed her show these past few days.
But today was another of her unusual days...
it is snowing.
PS: wood for our new floors is supposed to arrive this week!
I can't wait to reveal our redo!
I made it!
