Focus On Life Week 35 ~ Lazy Days of Summer

We've had such an unusual summer...not as hot, less humid.  I'm not complaining.  In fact I've been outside more this summer than in the past.  I've also been lazier this summer but didn't want to post a picture of ME being lazy, haha!  So I found this one of Shylee that I took last summer when we went on vacation.

I missed last week but here is my photo for "about the ground".  It's been quite dry the past month and the leaves are turning yellow and falling to the ground.  It looks like fall but it's not.

I hope you're enjoying the weekend!

Focus On Life Week 33 ~ The View of Above

This week Sally says to change our photo taking perspective and look up.

We were walking along the boardwalk in Solomon's and I was watching the seagulls hoping to get a good shot when I spotted this bird.  I thought it was a hawk until it started hovering and I realized it was an osprey.  I'm so used to seeing seagulls that I wonder how many times I've missed seeing an osprey because I don't usually look up.  It was fascinating to watch.

Have a great weekend!

Focus On Life Week 32 ~ Fresh Air

Our theme for August is "outside" and this week's prompt is "fresh air".  We've had a very mild summer.  It's been hot and humid but nothing like it usually is.  By August, the grass is turning brown and everything just looks dry and tired.  Not this August.  Everything is green and the flowers are still beautiful and full.  My crape myrtle tree is fuller and lusher than ever.  I never get tired of going out front in the fresh air and seeing this beauty.

I missed last week.  We've been having internet problems for the last few weeks and I'm just now getting caught up with blogs and blogging.  The prompt last week was "outside the box".  I took it literally and snapped a shot of the lace I took out of the box trying to find just the right piece.

I hope your weekend is everything you want it to be!
