Day 595

Today was one of those days where I planned one picture but decided on a better one(s).

Our burning bush has been very colorful so I headed out early before the sun was up to get a spectacularly beautiful picture. The camera certainly didn't capture the true colors, but I found some things in my rose garden that are really, truly, spectacular.

Day 594

Stepping out the door this morning didn't give many clues to the weather ahead. While the clouds were a bit dark, the sun was shining behind them and the birds were still flying around so it couldn't be that bad.
But as I drove to work the clouds looked more menacing.
Even before my meeting finished, it hit. Heavy, pouring rain. More rain than we had all summer long.

But those pictures aren't the coolest thing about the day. Thanks to the elementary school secretary, this picture is. She stitched up some stockings for soldiers! And today I sent a package containing 202 Christmas stockings to the Stockings for Soldiers organization. Thanks, P-- for your help!
