I open to the inner depths of my being with courage and compassion

Happy Birthday to my sister Bryn today! And to my niece Rianne tomorrow!

Moments that mothers love to see:

This morning when I got up for paper route, this is what it looked like out the window (our future view):

While I was out there to take a picture of the sunrise, I took a few of the progress with the house - the footings are in, and the foundation will be poured on Monday. This is looking down to where the basement will be - I'm standing where the garage will be:

Turned around from the spot I took the last picture from - up to where it angles to the left is the garage, and the diagonal section will be Mike's shop:

Since I had the camera with me when I went outside to leave for route, I took it with me. Sometimes I see some weird, interesting, or beautiful things and wish I had a camera. I didn't have to wish today:

I called 911 to let them know about the loose horse (maybe I should look up the number for animal control and save it in my phone - I feel like I've been calling 911 a lot for non-emergencies lately). I was hoping the peacocks I saw a few weeks ago would be out - there were about five peacocks lined up on the door of a barn and it looked like it would make a really nice photo. Maybe I'll have to make a habit of bringing the camera.

In my learnings, if I have the camera, nothing good happens.

I'm so excited for you and the house! How exciting to be able to watch it all happen.

I know some women who keep a disposable camera in their cars for unexpected picture opportunities. With the cool things that happen on your route, that might be a good idea for you too. The horse is beautiful.
