Back home for a bit.
Life away from home can be very hectic. I like going on a trip but love coming home much much more.
One of the very first things I did was to hike down to my favorite spot along the creek bottom to see what the recent heavy rains had done. There was a nice dusting of snow so the greens stood out so vividly.
It was Christmas Day so I had to wear my red and white hat that my mom had made for me ... um, well, back in the day... I think I was in Jr. High?
I love that hat it is so cheerful.
So while at the creek I took a few moments of time to toss rocks and make splashes.
It was kind of fun. I set my camera on a 2 second delay [on a tripod] and then tossed the rock when I thought the splash would show up.
I got a couple of good ones!
I hurried home after that, I had to get the Christmas Lasagna ready. We were going to my mom in law's apartment for dinner. I provided the lasagna, she was making homemade ice cream.
After we got home I went to take care of our neighbor's dog, Dexter. He was spending the night alone while his 'family' went for a family Christmas.
I think I made a new buddy.
This morning we went for a walk and Dexter did some posing for me.
He is a very photogenic dog.
Don't you think so?
He is a pug-something. He is also very lovable and well mannered.
I'd like to take him out for a few more 'shoots'. Ideally, it would be nice to have him and Morris meet so we could all go hiking together [of course I'd love to take his human mom with!].
I mean really, look at that face.
Isn't it handsome?
