We toddled down the hill going little-leg pace, enjoying the air and sun after some good rain yesterday. We passed by baby grass popping up all around. We said hello to some big cows relaxing and the dogs frolicking. They are probably very happy to be dry!
We got to the pen and the youngest of us was TERRIFIED by the sounds of the tiny moos we heard. Poor lil' girl. I don't hear that scared cry often. I don't know why she felt so frightened inside, only she knows that and fear is sometimes inexplicable anyway. So, needless to say we hustled away and there was no meeting or patting of baby cows.
We explored a little more as we walked back and Colyer yells out, "Mom! At least I found a baby skull!" Sure enough, a tiny skull was makin' it's way into C's pocket.
I am thinking a rat skull, geh.
Sometimes what makes a neat treasure is also, inexplicable.
Have a nice Tuesday evening.

Happy first rain of the season! (for us anyway)
We have been pre-occupied out here in Two Rock. We're thinking about boring grown-up stuff, doctor’s appointments, moving, jobs, etc. I also have Halloween costumes on the brain and the holiday-embroidery-crazies are certainly creeping in.
When I was starting to consider being overwhelmed, with no answers or finished projects in sight, my middle boy said, "I need a camera envelope Mom." I snapped to and said, "Lets just make one then."
We measured his new prized souvenir camera (thanks Grammie:) and started planning, cutting and sewing. In less than 30 minutes we had the perfect camera bag or "camera envelope" complete with strap and button closure. Please do not confuse this handy bag for a purse. Mr. C. will not hesitate to correct you on the spot.
It sure felt good to be spontaneous, create something with Colyer and most importantly for me right now, see a project through from conception to completion.
Colyer sure was thankful too, he said, "Thanks Mom for making this with me! I really love this! Don't touch my lens though." Uh-huh, a little true-blue photographer that helped snap me back to what is really important, enjoying right this instant...
..the rain, mud and the unknown all included.
