Lazy Sunday

The skid steer that was for sale on redneck craigslist our front lawn was finally trailered out of here yesterday. Not wasting any time with a pile of hundred dollar bills burning a hole in his pocket, the Gardener left just after 8:00 this morning to look at a tractor more than 3 hours away. At least he didn't expect me and the kids to go along. Not that I don't like spending time with my husband but 6 hours (round trip) in our farm truck pulling a big heavy trailer is not my idea of quality time, especially since I know his style. He will drive straight through only stopping to refuel without even going inside the gas station to pay (he's a huge fan of pay at the pump) let alone stopping for lunch or a pee break. I just hope he remembered his anti-narcolepsy meds this morning...

Instead I'm home with the girls, catching up on some blog reading and photo editing (my new favorite obsession hobby) while the girls are playing nicely together in the living room.

The other morning there was a thick layer of frost combined with fog outside making the sunrise even more beautiful than usual. I couldn't resist running outside in my PJs and bathrobe to capture it... then of course I jazzed it up a little.

Both shots are great but I prefer the building edited out on the left hand side. :)

After reading your comment that you are into photo editing, the first thing I thought to myself when I saw the photos were Huh, she edited the Baywatch lifeguard towers onto a field. Interesting. Then I realized what I was actually looking at. Time to stop blogging and go to bed.
