Normal Day

Normal Day
let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me learn from you,
love you,
bless you before you depart.
Let me not pass you by
in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow.
Let me hold you while I may,
for it may not always be so.
One day I shall dig my nails into the earth,
or bury my face in the pillow,
or stretch myself taut,
or raise my hands to the sky and want,
more than all the world,
your return.

-Mary Jean Iron


Taken at the same place as the previous picture, but later in the evening.  This is my favorite picture from the trip.

Have a wonderful Sunday. 

Love One Another :-)


I took this picture at Alum Creek Lake State Park in Delaware, Ohio. 
It was early evening and the shadows on the pond were beautiful

I Love...

Thunderstorms in the afternoon
Sleeping in
Weekends spent with those that I love
The thought of being a mother
The smell of fresh cut grass

Today...I am thankful. 
Love One Another :-)

Grand Times at the Ohio State Fair

Yes I know, the State Fair has been over for a few days...okay, it has been like a week...but I have been busy sitting on my couch in my pajamas eating a 3 lb bag of candy this week.  Now that I am finished with the bag and my jeans are a little snugger, I am ready to write about all the joy that the fair brought to me.

Lets start here with the reason that we all load our families into the car and walk around in the smothering Summer heat.   FOOD!  Funnel cakes, barbecue, batter dipped things on sticks, fried everything!  Really, is there anything better in the world than fair food?

Fair Food       
Upon walking by this area, I immediately began drooling in delight.

Pig on a Spit
Oh thank you little piggy for supplying us with your wonderful pork products.

Mmmmm German Roasted Almonds and Jumbo Turkey Legs.  Can I mix those together?

This kid made me laugh, he was so excited by the Lego City!

Being the Great Chicken Lover of Southern Ohio, I had a blast going through the enormous chicken house. 

Im so jealous of this pretty hens hair.  It is so beautiful and puffy without hair spray.

Good Hair Day
Another fine hair specimen.

Hello Georgeous!

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources had an awesome area that you could walk around and meet the native animals of Ohio.  On display was a very antsy coyote which was housed right next to the bobcat.  They had all kinds of birds and bats and even bald eagles!
I really enjoyed the butterfly house.  I need to find out who their gardener is.

Butterfly House
An attempt at "real" photography.  I tried to catch this little guy in flight, but my aperture and ISO were all messed up, since I have no idea how to adjust aperture or what exposure compensation really is...this is the result I ended up with.


There is so much to explore at the Ohio State Fair. I could go on and on but I would risk boring what few readers I actually have and that would be terrible!  If you are looking for a great time to be had by the whole family, pack them up and take them to the fair.  Make some memories today.

The T-Shirt Says It All

Since it is Sunday morning, and I'm tired, and it's been a long weekend full of no fun at all, I decided I would share with you some T-Shirt designs that make me laugh until I want to pee my pants.  Most of these can be found at http://www.thelighterside.com/ .
Its great to be a girl.
Coupon addiction, is there a rehab for that?

I would be skinny for sure.
Chocolate is what makes me tick.

I think I am somewhere in the middle.

My husband would agree.
