On the Rooftop

Sometimes there are moments when I see something super cool. I was in my office, I noticed something out of the corner of my eye that caught my attention.

I looked at the roof of our garage and watched a Red Tailed Hawk take a bath in the rain water that was left over on our garage rooftop.

It’s not a great photo, I snapped it fairly quickly because I was afraid that the hawk would fly away before I could get the shot.

The hawk played in the water for about 20 minutes. Twice the hawk flew up to the ledge of the garage and slid across the water to the other side. It was truly amazing to watch this bird play in the water. I had to laugh when it bobbed up & down in the water. The hawk sat down in the water for a while, just being still and enjoying the weather.

Like I said, this photo isn’t a great one, but I’m sharing it anyway.

Gettin’ it Done

Today I needed to cut the grass before the heat wave hit Northern Illinois.

Since he has been unable to do anything with his hands its up to me to get it done. I’m pretty much doing everything. He bought his new tractor last summer because the push mower hurt his hands and his legs.

I had to learn how to start the Husqvarna. I was getting ready to complete this task by myself. Had my hair did, do-rag on. I even downloaded a song just for the occasion.

“Thank god I’m a Country Boy” by John Denver.

I really had fun, even mowing over the snake.

Attempting to clean my office today, since it’s too hot to go outside & work. 

Bob is a minion. He might be in future photos. I’m not sure yet.

I like how this photo came out. Taken with my iPhone 6 with a few filters added, also a border. 

Share Your World – 2016 Week 29

What is the perfect pizza? Would be ordered from a few of my favorite local pizzeria’s here in my town. On top would be sausage, mushrooms, black olives and pepperoni and lots of cheese.


What is your favorite time of day? Somewhere between 8 am – 10am. The stores are just opening, not a lot of people. It’s the start of the day.

Show us two of your favorites photographs?  The photos can be from anytime in your life span.  Explain why they are your favorite.

[LEFT] was taken while on holiday in England. One of my favorite places, Camden Market. I seen a man with an orange Mohawk, looking like a true punk rocker. I needed a photo, but was too embarrassed to ask. My beloved asked him while I was in a shop picking out a few items to take back home with me. I absolutely love this photo. I never did find out the guys name. [RIGHT] Is a photo of my beloved & I. I added a few filters and really liked the way it came out. HE on the other hand wasn’t too thrilled with the look of it. It caught his slightly serious look with me who is more playful.

Complete this sentence:  I’m looking forward to… getting back into a regular routine.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?  I’m grateful for the beautiful weather. Looking forward to another quiet week.
