This weeks assignment over at DPS is Cemeteries. The kids and I took a walk over to the graveyard (is there a difference between a cemetery and a graveyard?) so I could snap a few pics… well more like 150 before I finally settled on one I liked. :)
I made this cross for our graveyard back when we first moved to the Ranch in 2001. It’s got I don’t know how many coats of stain and varathane on it and it’s stood up to the weather quite well. I think for lying halfway down the bank on dried horse and cow manure with the sun blinding me the picture came out just the way I wanted it to (good Lord the things I’ll do for a picture!).
Jevan was invited to a birthday party last weekend and he really had a blast flying a kite in the school yard.
The string was out as far as it would go and with the windy weather the kite would go UP for a short time and then plunge to the ground. It’s too bad we didn’t have more string but Jevan didn’t care, he was having lots of fun!
I’ve also had a couple of new birds show up at my feeder this past week, Mourning Doves. Such a pretty bird and they sure have quite the shine to their necks.
Friday was Sydney’s 12th birthday and Jevan turns 7 on Monday so we are having a weeny roast with all the unhealthly snack foods tomorrow, including A&W root beer pop (My goodness Sydney can talk me into anything!). It’s getting late and I have a cake I have to bake first thing in the morning, have a great night all! :)
