REFLECTIONS

Housework Tuesday is here again?? Oh well getting started early with the laundry so I can dry several loads on the line today,it is a sunny,breezy day, perfect for drying laundry.I always get a special nostalgic feeling everytime I see my clothes line full with things drying in mother natures dryer.
Hubbie left about mid morning going back down to the livestock market to watch our cattle sell. We did petty good except for one so that is normal I guess they never bring what I think they should !!
I had 2 cake deliveries to make this morning along with an Avon delivery.My deliveries took me past this waterfall and old mill ,I always stop to admire this site.
After lunch I hung out more laundry and when hubbie got home he helped me finish cleaning the floors.
We went over to the in-laws old house and made pictures to advertise it for sale. We are going to try to sell it ourselves first before we list it with a realtor.It's a nice little house ,close enough to walk to town but far enough out of town to be out of the traffic and taxes. Puttin it in God's hands at this point.As I walked this evening this little lady who escaped market yesterday started following me around the pasture as if asking where her friends were?On this beautiful sunny warm 79 degree day the reflection of these bushes in our pond caught my eye this evening. Another kind of reflection came to mind when I saw this picture on a local news network. This is what Tunnel Road looked like when I was in my late teens and early twenties when we used to drive through the tunnel to get to the part where all the eating places were and we would drag them every Saturday night.
In the late 70's and early 80's they made a huge cut in this mountain for a road instead of a tunnel. In this picture they have already removed all the trees getting ready for the cut.
I baked cakes tonight.
Thank God for the blessing of a wonderful day today.
Good Night and God bless.

Hi Marilyn, I love smelling laundry that has been on the line outside....

That old mill and waterfall is neat.. We've seen one similar --but cannot remember where it was.

That is a neat picture of the Old Tunnel.... Sometimes progress is good and other times I don't like it. When I lived in Texas, we had to go through a tunnel under the river.. They finally built a big bridge. I missed that old tunnel..

Hugs,
Betsy
