It felt so good to turn off my phone and computer Thursday morning at 6am and not turn it back on until Sunday afternoon! We made our now annual trip to West Texas. (2011, 2010) The sky was big, the air was cold, and the sun was warm. And it was fantastic to not have any electronics to distract us. We didn’t stay until the new year, but it was a great way to end the year.
1. The 2-year drought has taken its toll on the land and it’s inhabitants.
2. Chores to be done — a little fence mending.
3. An outdoor card game.
4. Fresh apple pie — thanks mom!
5. A dry landscape (and a small doe on the left side of the frame).
