Do the days seem like they go on and on lately? I wonder if it’s the time change. . .and not having caught up yet. It’s nice when I am working on a project and could use more time–but on the other hand, it seems like what should be a quick project takes forever. That’sContinue reading “endless Sunday afternoon”
I glance out the window, and saw this fawn illuminated by sunlight. I’m sure she thought she was hidden, not knowing the sun turned her bright gold in those green shadows. I snapped a lot of photos, but that darn branch was blocking her face in every one.
