The beautiful green leaf is part of a white barked willow that hangs over our driveway. At certain times of the year it makes an unholy mess on whatever car is parked on that side of the driveway and I think there is an unspoken understanding in our household that whoever gets the clear side first always has first debs. I don't believe I've ever seen anyone voluntarily park under the tree if the clear side is free even in the dead of summer when there is shade.
A few days ago Don surprised me at work to pick me up at 4 p.m. He doesn't usually get off work until 5 or later so it was a nice surprise. We stopped at Starbucks on the way home and while sitting out on the patio, Don made a new friend. Now you have to understand that Don speaks cat. There is not a cat on the planet that he can't charm into his lap. This little feral kitty just jumped up into his lap like he was the Pied Piper playing his pipes.
Today as I walked out to the car at noon to pick up Krista for lunch and officially start my two weeks off, I noticed an odd little triangle shape hanging from beneath my car. From a distance it looks really strange but as I drew closer I discovered that Mother Nature had simply thrown together a bit of debris that got hung up on the undercarriage of the car. It was an amazing little bit of artwork nature had served up. I immediately bent down contorting myself so me and the camera were basically upsidedown. I pointed in the general direction of the debris and managed one "clear" shot. Several stages of cropping later, this is what turned out to be the best of the group. One of life's little details.
