Wow - it's December 12 already. I must say, I'm pretty proud of myself for sticking with this project. Thank you, Chad, for 12 really fun (and sometimes challenging) days this year. I also want to thank all of you who have taken the time to look at my blog during the year. May your Christmas be bright with promise, glad with hope and blessed with peace and joy. If you celebrate something other than Christ's birth during this season, I hold the same good wishes for you. See you next year!

It's hard to believe it's almost the middle of October; Arkansas is still having beautiful weather. I had planned a visit to a knap-in today- thought I'd get some interesting pictures there. Change of plans; my Google map was faulty, and my navigation system isn't up to par when it comes to rural Arkansas. I never found the knap-in, but I found some pretty neat things to take pictures of. I hope you enjoy seeing through my eyes.

9:57 a.m. - ready to stock up the refrigerator for the coming week.

10:32 a.m. - on my way to the knap-in (not), this cow posed for me.

10:42 a.m. - not finding the knap-in.

10:43 - still no knap-in, but train tracks are nice.

12:08 p.m. - gave up on the knap-in, but loving this flag.

12:23 p.m. - carving on the Clysta Willett nature
trail at Twin Lakes Park

12:32 p.m. - spent wildflower

12:35 p.m. - old stacked up fence section

12:36 p.m. - fall colors galore

12:39 p.m. - fungi on a log

12:50 p.m. - Peace Roses are still booming

12:52 p.m. - bumble bee on lavender

I hope your day was awesome. Sunny

What a day. I got Lightroom 2 today and had to get it installed before I could process my pictures.....that's not quite true, I guess. I could have processed them with ACR or DPP, but I wanted to play in Lightroom. Sorry I'm late posting.

Cemetery I pass on the way to work - 7:58 a.m.

Crepe Myrtle in a yard around the corner from the office - 8:00 a.m.

When I took the dogs out early this evening, I saw
this spider suspended in mid-air about 7 feet off the
ground. It was just dark enough that it appeared to
be floating. The web only showed up on the image.
