one cart . one camera

yes I am the eccentric lady whose red hair is swirling in a gust of the impending rainstorm

standing in the parking lot with a cart full of groceries . camera poised

marveling at the movement of the clouds

watching the birds sway and balance on the lines as they swing

knowing that this is more important than loading the bags in the trunk

Oh, DEFINITELY worth being thought a bit eccentric. Love those swirling clouds... and isn't it just amazing how the birds keep their balance on those thin wires in the midst of it all?

Wondeful. (I would have done the same and it drives my kiddos and hubby nuts some times).

well, of course. i would expect nothing less from you & thank you. I stood in the middle of the street outside our business with nothing but a cell phone and less amazing clouds, but I could feel it coming.

number one lesson in time management:
