Guess.What.Day.It.Is?

  1. Puts things in perspective! I’m hitting the road to the kitchen, espresso & a ‘love-biscuit’, a double-decker heart shaped cookie with jam in the middle, oozing out of the inserted small heart cutouts – made and brought by my sister for Valentine’s Day!

  7. Ah, the beauty of God’s creation! But, Lord, is a shade tree every 100 miles or so too much to as?

  10. I’m falling behind on my Reader visits… Anyway, if it were still midweek, I would have noted I didn’t get the point of a photo of ants with packs on their back marching across the desert – where’s the camels? Since it isn’t Wednesday (written on Friday), I’ll say what an amazing photo! One can’t imagine the dimension of the desert dunes or the climate factors that created them. Where I live, we have a feature called the Sandhills, a region covering about a third of the state. Stabilized with grass, they are a natural pasture where bison literally roams in the past and cattle do now. The Ogallala Aquifer is underneath, and the region is spotted with groundwater lakes that are attractive to migrating waterfowl in search of good places to rest and raise their young. I know my dunes, and these in the photo are beyond my imagination! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandhills_%28Nebraska%29
