Macro: Mushroom



It’s time for another macro for Monday.  I went back in time for this one.  This is about 2 years old and was taken at my parents house.  They’d been having a rainy year, so there was all kinds of mushrooms all over their yard.  

Check out this brightly colored mushroom….

I just downloaded these from my camera and I just had to share at least one of them!!

We went to the Wildlife Refuge after the rains. It was amazing to see everything to alive and bright since we’ve had a drought the past couple of years. There were huge herds of longhorns enjoying the green grass. Some were grazing and some were just laying around.

Rain Delay Becomes Race Cancelled

For most of the winter, we look forward to the beginning of race season.  We’re true NASCAR fans!!  Winter isn’t totally miserable because we do have the Green Bay Packers and they’re the ultimate!!  However, racing is a pure adrenaline rush and there’s so much hype leading up to opening day.

Now granted, we have had the Bud Shootout and the Gatorade Duals, but it’s still not the main event.  It’s not opening day of racing season!! 

For the first time in history, the Daytona 500 was cancelled postponed!!  It started as a rain delay and looked like the skies might clear.  As the hours went on, it didn’t look so good.  The dryers even made it out on the track when the skies opened up again.  Had it stayed clear, we could have had a night race because Daytona is equipped, but it just wasn’t meant to be.

With all the wild rides and excitement of the events leading up to today, the truck race and the Nationwide race, I can’t help but feel today was cancelled postponed for a reason.  Jeff Gordon took a wild ride at the Shootout.  There’s been crazy wrecks all weekend in the other racing events.  Today just had to be a way of God looking out for these race car drivers.  I know many will disagree with me, but I believe everything happens for a reason.  It just wasn’t meant to be today.

We should have a pretty fun and exciting Monday though!!  (Alright, so it’s not cancelled….it’s postponed.)  Let’s go racing boys….and let’s WIN Jr!!

Yes, after a long hot summer, rain has finally come to OK!!  The temperature is perfect and the rain is falling.  It’s not storming….NO thunder….NO lightening.  It’s just an all-day rain.  We so desperately need this and God has answered the farmer’s prayers.  It’s so glorious!!

Of course, there’s a complaint that goes with it.  They’re calling for this rain most of the week.  Now I don’t like that.  I gotta have a little sunshine in my life.  I don’t need any cabin fever because before I know it, winter will be here.

So please God, a few rays of sunshine between all these raindrops!!

Getting Caught Up

We had a GREAT visit with my Dad.  He arrived on Friday and just left this morning.  His drive home was quite long and tiring due to rain the whole trip.  I can’t believe that I was able to have my Dad for Mother’s Day.  What a treat!!  He was bored sitting at home in this gloomy weather.  We had planned on doing more with him, but the weather didn’t cooperate with us here either.  We still managed to keep him busy and entertained….and well fed!!  HEHE 

I’ll be working off and on the rest of this evening to get my blog posts caught up.  I started something almost everyday he was here, but didn’t get them posted.  I’ll do my best to complete that process, so be sure to check back for older dated posts!!
