vacation within a vacation


We are out at the lake with my extended family this week.  It’s been a hoot seeing the little nieces and nephews swimming and fishing and making s’mores around the fire.  I love spending time with my family.  The end of day is reserved for country roads and quiet, though.  Last night’s sunset was extra special because it wasn’t oppressively hot and the bugs were manageable.  This is taken about 10 miles from where we are vacationing.  The area around the Loup River in Central Nebraska is beautiful in its sparseness.

*Also, please forgive me if you have tagged your post iPhriday and I have missed it.  I noticed that my own post from last week didn’t show up under the iPhriday tag when I went to prepare this week’s post.  I’m not sure what’s going on, but please know it isn’t intentional!*

iphriday–the flowers don’t seem to mind

iPhriday is a day to post pictures you’ve got piling up in your phones.  Join me and the other iPhridians and create a post including your cell phone shots and then tag it iPhriday, so I can find you and feature you on my blog.  Happy Weekend!

100 degrees F here today.  It’s muggy, and still, and miserable.  Give me a blizzard over this wretched heat any day of the week.

The flowers don’t agree.  They are loving the heat, and they provide me with sweet splashes of happy.  6:17iphriday.jpg6:17iphriday46:17iphriday36:17iphriday2
