And I did a little shopping this weekend…

This basket from Target is woven from felt strips…hmmm, thinking I could make that!

A lovely country lane, shaded by trees lining the roadway.

Cleaning out and organizing cabinets, shelves, and drawers…some how that always makes me feel more “in control”!

And I took a long walk along the Katy Trail this evening…needed to think and sort things out.

Love this pic, not sure why it looks like a sepia finish, but I love it!

Do you ever wonder what this looked like to the first people who ever saw it?  What it looked like to the pioneers who followed in their steps?

I wonder at what an obstacle a river this wide would be to people on foot, trying to get to the other side.

Beautiful views of your area. 8 miles walk is healthy while watching the stunning views is pleasant.

Beautiful shots especially of the river

I used to have rat terriers as a child! One of yours ( that you are sitting for ) looks like my childhood love, "Trixie" :)
