I find certain trees are just as beautiful in winter as they are the rest of the year. This old tree with her mossy oak limbs is one of my favorite photo subjects.
Mossy Oak Limbs
Our Dirt Road
Here’s another photo from today, of the dirt road we live down. I love the curves and hills.
There was an eagle at the first Felkins creek bridge today, but as soon as I got close enough to get a photo, it flew away and circled back over the trees. So no pic of the eagle.
Making a Quick Trip to Town
In an unusually disciplined effort, I continued driving to my destination and didn’t stop again. Time was of the essence for this jaunt and I just didn’t look around much on my way in or out.
If I had, then I would have seen more things to stop for and that would have definitely slowed me down. I knew when I left the house that I’d only stop for one spectacular shot. Since the eagle didn’t give me a good opportunity, I thought the road itself was the next best thing.
The mossy oak limbs looked pretty this morning as the sun came up over the hill, so I took that one this morning from the porch before I left for running errands.
Ordinarily when I bring the camera with me down the road, I stop a lot.
Christmas is getting close and I’m still not quite finished with the gifts. Mostly, I just need to wrap and label them.
It Wasn’t Really Quick, Just Quicker than Usual
That’s why I tried to make a quick(er) trip with the errands. The nearest town, not counting Kingston, is about 45 minutes away, so it’s never a truly quick trip, ha.
Time is passing so fast these days it seems like the entire week is gone before I know it. Now a whole year is almost gone. I’ve been working on focusing my efforts, taking some of the irons out of the fire.
But it seems the only iron that manages to stay out is the one labeled “housekeeping”. It’s the only one I need to add back in there a little more often!
I probably won’t make another post until after the holidays, so I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!
