I have been driving. I have been visiting. I have been working. I have seen some gorgeous things that I want to share with you.
Last weekend I went to my family's farm in Arkansas in the Ozark mountains. My grandparents are living there now, along with my cousin and his wife. We're a close-knit bunch so getting to spend time with everybody was wonderful. My other cousin got married in Conway. So happy I could be there for her.
So here are some photos to soothe you here at the end of the week. I would prefer that you sing or hum or hear in your head the song "Into the Mystic" by Van Morrison. If you don't know it, shame on you. Just download it and all will be forgiven.
|Spending time in the woods--love the sun spots|
|Cousin Eric showing me his chicken coop|
|My grandmother chopping chives|
|Box of black apples from a neighboring farm|
|Late afternoon view from the house on the hill|
|A little lighter this time|
|Then I noticed some grazing deer and I tried to get a shot of them, but I couldn't really see because the sun was in my face|
|Can't see them in this shot either but the topography is pretty|
|Changing leaves...Big House, barn and little egg house.|
|Another shot of the pond|
|And another one of the egg house and the changing colors on the moutains|
|Windmill and sunshine|
They said the leaves had started changing four days before I got there. So happy I got to see all those colors. It was a special weekend.
This one will be special too. Looking forward to doing nothing at all. But who knows what it will actually hold? Into the mystic...
I hope you have a very merry weekend! See you on Monday!
