Memorial Weekend 2017

We had a wonderful night camping at Myre Big Island State Park.  Freeborn CountyMN.  This trip lead us to several one room schools.

Henry comes alive in the water.  Even with a sore leg...we carried him in a dog stroller, borrowed to us by Lily.  The water was calm and glass-like.  I noticed there were no motor boats on the lake which made it peaceful.

Yes, that's Henry...spent all his time in the stroller.   Being hurt is NOT as fun.

Blooming Prairie....notice the solar windmills

Look what I left out all winter-long!  Curled up elm leaves rested the whole winter in the key cradle of this old Underwood typewriter.  I bought the old thing on a whim.  A bit rusty and as heavy as an anchor -we threw it in the back seat for $12 bucks.

Underwood sits back by the shed under the sweet smelling spring lilac bushes...

and a few yards away from  "Bleeding Hearts of love and hope and the beating of spring".

I am happy Spring is here again.

I found my inspiration!

An Apple - 27" iMac® with Retina 5K display - Intel Core i5 - 8GB Memory - 1TB Hard Drive!
No more sore eyes for me staring at an old monitor that was slowly fading in from the corners.  Even though I consider myself a PC gal - I had no problem buying my first Mac.  Now for some awesomely edited images.
