I've been collecting a lot of random photos over the last couple of weeks. Here are some of them.
Take me home, country road...
We are just -- and I mean just -- starting French. Here we're discussing the basics of French pronunciation.
Here we're conjugating the irregular verb être.
Lydia, caught in a sunbeam.
Here's a bumper sticker you don't see very often.
Our evening herd of deer.
A farmer bales wheat straw.
Field burning -- burning off crop residue -- is legal in our county. Here, a field was baled and then burned. I thought the contrast between the bales and the field was nice.
Some interesting things seen at a small fair.
A nice barn we passed.
It was after dark but we needed to get some work done on the tankards. So Don set up a portable floodlight and we all got busy.
Fireweed, gone to seed.
Early morning shadows.
Early morning chickens.
Early morning frost, first of the season. (That's the white stuff on the ground, for all my Florida readers [wink].)
This little girl started right up our driveway in broad daylight...
...before changing her mind and heading back into the woods.
My yeast was getting old and losing its oomph. The last batch of bread that came out of the bread machine was short and dense. The girls thought it was "cute"...
...and proved their point by adding a bow. Awwww.
The Virginia creeper is turning color.
Lydia explores the garden.
Cooling lemon meringue pies for the neighborhood potluck.
A visiting magpie.
A perch with a view.
Now that winter is coming and it's dark when I get up in the morning, I've started lighting this little oil lamp, just for beauty.
