It's Monday

It's Monday, the start of another week which I hope is productive....sometimes I have a bad habit of becoming a real slouch especially when it's hot and that it has been with tomorrow predicted to be dangerously HOT!!  But today I must get off my duff and get something done around here...the summer is moving by swiftly.

Before I do get movin' I want to post a few more pics of my travels to the country on Saturday.  That little trip awakened my soul to the absolute beauty that lies just a few short miles "down the road a piece."  Even in this hot and dry summer there is still beauty to be found around ever corner.  Each one of these has a quote which is the challenge for an on-line Flickr group, Prompt Addicts this week.







And this one, also from the trip for Rosie's at Leaves in Bloom for her Monday Color Me Weekly.





And what is more country than Holly Hocks growing wild....


And finally for Tricia's Monday Barn Charm....love this old barn.

Until next time....

  2. I had to LOL at the rooster quote. Loving the one with the bible verse on the fence post--very nice. Last week I was so unproductive and felt horrible, just lying around feeling sorry for myself. This week I intend to change that, Lord willing. Hope you have a great week!

  14. Fantastic photos. I love the perspective you took with the barn shot. The Psalms quote is special to me. Our minister always said that. He recently passed with cancer. Thanks for sharing.
