We survived parents’ weekend! Actually, it was a very successful weekend, musically. It wasn’t pretty as far as following the meal plan (and, in truth, involved way too many cookies, too much ice cream, and too many dining hall meals). This week, I need to get refocused on following the meal plan.
Also, you may have noticed the addition of a lilac photo last week. I decided to add a bit of photo gratitude to the menus, so each week I plan to include a photo of something on the farm that is indicative of the week and makes me happy. The last week was rainy, and started a change in the types of flowers that are blooming. I spent a bit of time in the rain Saturday morning playing with my macro extension tubes. The wind was annoying (when you’re 1/2″ from your photo subject, and it moves just a little bit, it’s gonna go out of focus), but I enjoyed the quiet time in the midst of a crazy weekend. Had a hard time deciding on the one to use for the post, though. Here are others I thought were worthwhile. Which should I have used?
