Rest assured, my dear friends, I have NOT forgotten about the QUESTIONS you all asked in my 500th post. I simply seem to be treating it exactly like many things in my life........I'm procrastinating. You see, there are some really GREAT questions that were asked that really deserve GOOD answers. Good answers take time, and often TIME is not something I have. So those questions are just sitting there....hoping to be given some of Corey's attention.
Tonight, I decided I had a bit of time to tackle one of the questions Kim, of Beanish and Other Languages I'm Learning, asked.
What's my version of a perfect day?
I tend to be a pretty darn simple person, but funny enough, I find that I have several versions of a perfect day. Tonight, I'll share a day that was quite near perfect in everyway.
Back in late November (YES, I said November. I am ALWAYS hopelessly behind in editing and sharing photos.), the family set out for a day together. This particular day, we had a mission that we all could get behind. We went hunting for a Christmas tree. Having a common interest is something that makes a day perfect for me. Often the three of us have entire different ideas in mind for our day, which makes it difficult. It is when we all WANT to do the same thing that it feels so right.
We loaded up in our truck and headed off up a narrowly winding road, deep into the forest. On a whim, The Hubby brought a fishing pole. As per usual, I packed my camera. Not too far into our adventure we reached a little lake that The Hubby likes to "check out". We were ALL more than happy to have a rest stop.
Soon, we were all doing out THANG!
The Hubby was testing the waters.
While Sugar observed.
Daisy excitedly bounded to and fro.
Sugar Bear busied herself with exploring.
I eagerly aimed my camera at everything, but the kitchen sink. (Let's not kid ourselves....if there had been a kitchen sink....I would have shot that as well!)
After awhile, Sugar Bear convinced me to play a rousing game of, Hide and Seek. We both love this game. She is an absolutly wonderful counter...
and a joyous finder.....
and well.....hider she is still working on.
It just couldn't have been better. The Hubby was happy. The Dog was delighted. Sugar Bear was entertained, and I...well.....I was pretty darn satisfied to get a shot like this:
Gosh I love reflections! Yes....it certainly was a perfect day. After we left, we continued on our way to find a Tree, and happily traveled home to our nice warm house, for a cozy evening at home.
LIFE IS GOOD!
