I have been doing some housekeeping...well, at least on my laptop!
Since I started this blog more than eight months ago (Can you believe it's been eight months?), the photos have gotten out of control. For every photo that shows up on this blog, there's probably another five that didn't make the cut!
Some of the non-blog shots are keepers because they are of my family and friends but many of them are random shots. I don't really need five photos of a bowl of mac 'n cheese or a pile of toothpaste (it was free, you know) or the candy my nephews left in my couch.
So, I have spent a few minutes each evening deleting the extra photos. Not too hard, just takes time.
However, I kept coming back to the two photos below. I took them on July 4th on my parents' back porch.
The subject is my parents' dog - Molly. She's a high energy, loveable farm dog. She spends most of her time roaming the yard, protecting her territory from imagined (and sometimes real) threats.
I just love the expressions on her face.
She's looking across the yard, always vigilant.
She's caught sight of something.
Unfortunately it's probably a baby bird.
