Quote for the week: Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.
Louisa Mae Alcott
Last week was hectic with copy edits for Princess Breeze, two critiques I did, reviews, and stormy weather, so I'm sharing pictures with you today. When all the world goes mad, taking pictures relaxes me. Thursday and Friday we had stormy weather in the area and up into Oklahoma. Tornadoes and hail in some places. Those of you that live nearby know. We had wicked looking clouds and rain, good rain which we always need, but no severe weather where I live, though it wasn't too far away. Clouds are beautiful, and this is what I saw.
Those are raindrops on the lens. Yes, I have no sense. I stand outside.
One morning I looked out the bedroom window and this is what I saw. At first, I thought it was a doe, but a closer look showed me the beginning of antlers. They shed their antlers in the winter and grow new ones. He grazed a little while and then went away.
Maybe you can see the antlers better here. I hope he comes back when they're larger. Would love to have a picture then. You also see where they got their name: white-tailed deer.
That's it for me today.
