Summer Play

So at this point in February, do any of us
still remember summer?
 I’m not complaining about the winter and the snow,
in fact, I’m still enjoying it.
 But it’s kind of like when you’re on a trip. 
You’re enjoying where you are,
but every now and then you think about home. 
And you know that’s where you really want to be. 
So today my mind is drifting somewhere
away from the white stuff that keeps covering all the outdoors,
away from the snow clothes piled in the living room,
  and away from my always chilly feet. 
I’m thinking of those long warm summer evenings,
bare feet, suppers made with fresh vegetables…

Today I’m sharing photos from a warm summer evening.
Nathan was gone so it was just us girls at home. 
Their eyes literally glittered with excitement when I told them my idea,
 and we scrambled around finding bits of this and that to take into the woods.
 My aspiration was taking “arty” photographs
and theirs was the three of us dressing up and playing “Indian” together. 
Our ambitions meshed well.

I used a tripod with a remote shutter for the photos of the three of us.  
For the self-portraits the girls pushed the remote shutter button.

 One of these girls is a bit of a wild child.  
She’s wearing a shirt that her daddy used to play with 
back when he was a kid.

You shouldn't always be serious.  

"Let everything that has breath praise the LORD." 
Psalm 150:6
