Today I have been sewing two inch squares together. Eventually they will be used in a quilt. But, I wanted to share a couple photos of our outing yesterday to the woods. Dodger, Kevin, I and a friend Ashley went out in the woods. Dodger and I took all sorts of paths going off the main road and just had a great time. We saw grasshoppers, butterflies, birds and even a lizard. My favorite was when we got down by the stream.
Dodger had a great time watching the grasshoppers in this area! Pretty soon though she was jumping and chasing them. Her and I took numerous walks while Kevin and Ashley were target shooting.
I find it fascinating to walk beside a stream and admire the way nature creates such beauty. I sat on this log and just listened to the water moving and looked in every direction at all of the colors, plants, trees and spent time just feeling a total calming effect. I tried to download one of the video clips for you could enjoy the sound also...but I was not able to do it. Sorry!
This photo is one of my favorites from yesterday. While Dodger and I were walking along the stream these leaves looked to me like they were floating on top of the water. But in honest, they are not they are actually quite a bit away from the water. It sure was pretty, so wanted to share.
This caught my eye, right before heading home. A top of this huge tree a big splotch of white...my next thought was spider and what a hard working spider. So, I zoomed in and snapped the shot, still not being able to tell for sure if that is what it was. Today when I downloaded the pictures...ta da...it sure enough is a huge spider web. I am surprised it did not have birds trapped in it.
