Last day of my summer vacation- a quick pix

I am so sad that my summer vacation has run out.  I had such a good summer, I really feel like I made good use of it, a little travel, a little staying home, a lot of exercise and a lot of losing weight!  I am down 39.6 pounds as of today.  Holy moly!

Here is one photo from yesterday, my dear friend Cat and I went up to Ashland, WI for a quick shopping trip, walk by the lake and lunch!  Gotta love the big lake!  I'll be posting more pix and catching up asap!!

Have a lovely, joyful day!

Another set of sunrises!

I KNOW I should keep these until Sunday, but they were pretty darn awesome, and as you all know, I love to spread the joy!

This one was about 6:20

This was about 7:20

It rained about an hour after I got home!  Gorgeous morning.

Until next time, be a joy giver!

Sunday photos- round 1

I am going to get a few pictures in right now, and since I have at least 2 weeks to catch up on, AND I have a bunch that are not edited, it will take a day or two!  Enjoy!!

I hope you can find some joy in these images!  Some you have seen, some you have not!

Until next time........  Be a joy giver!

Me and my mama went to the zoo!!

I will use any person or excuse to take pictures with my awesome-sauce camera!!  And so this time I dragged my mother to the zoo!  I haven't been to the Milwaukee zoo for ages- probably 15 years, so it was a long overdue trip.  They have a lovely facility, I wish I lived closer to get there more often.  Not to mention that it would also make me a lot closer to mama and other family members.....

My poor mother never quite knows what the heck I am doing!  :)
It was ANOTHER beautiful day, the weather gods were smiling on me last week!  It got a little warm, but there is so much shade there, that it wasn't a problem!

Alright, on with the pictures!  It's all about the animals here, no sunsets or clouds!


A little tired!

Awesome topiaries!

Having a sip of water

Wrinkles to the extreme!

Lol, couldn't resist this one!



Love the shadows and textures

Such homely things!

What a look


Beautiful reflections

This one just mad me sad

Haunting, soulful eyes

I wish I would have taken even more!  But mom was getting a little tired and warm, so we went back to her apartment and chilled out until we had a wonderful supper with brother Ed and his lovely wife Dee.  He grilled brats and we just had a great time chatting and sitting on their deck.  #2 Mad-son Greg and his gorgeous, sweet and awesome gf Sarah-Jane came over to see Grandma, too.

Greg and brother Ed- I am so sorry I missed a photo of Dee!!
Can you imagine?  They were making fun of me for taking pictures.  Good thing I don't pay attention to that!  :)  Another awesome day, with wonderful family members.

How much more joy can we take??  :)

I'll try to find more......  It's always there!

Until next time- find that joy, people!!
