Posing for the Camera
SmugMug Daily Link
I thought I'd spend one more day focusing on pics taken at Yates Mill on Saturday. This black swallowtail was taken up near the visitor center just before we left.
Imagine what this view of the mill will look like in 4, 6. and 8 weeks as fall settles in and the autumn color appears. I hope to be back often to take more pics.
A really cool mushroom on the trail contrasting in size to Donnie's fingers removing a pine needle that was in the way.
This mushroom was pretty cool too.
Although the light wasn't just right, I did manage to get this one shot of the miller and the water wheel just starting to turn. It's only really pretty and noticeable right when he starts it up. The initial rush of water is always a thrill.
We had roast chicken for our Sunday dinner. Johnny said it was as good as Thanksgiving because there were so many delicious sides (broccoli and cheese, cauliflower mash, and carrots plus a salad). It warmed my heart when the boys came home today to hear them laughing and wrestling and playing with Donnie. It's "Hi Mom." and then race to find where Donnie is:-) They all sat around with notepads drawing up inventions, and after dinner I got presentations from each of them. All of Donnie's were aimed at helping me out (with the boys). Johnny's were very tech oriented. Joey's seemed to focus on food and chores being done automatically.
