Oh sheesh…I have a splitting headache….trying to get this posted tonight is killing me!!  I’m thisclose to giving up and just going to bed.  *moan*  Not to complain or anything.  I will come back later and link up with the photo hunt.  For now, I’m just happy that I’m this close to finishing.

  6. Napping IS serious business! I concur. I adore your contrast, but I love your butterflies. :)

    As far as eco friendly goes, at least you took a photo of your own recycling bin..... we were on a walk when I took one of someone else's......not even someone I know! lol...

    I'm pretty sure half of my children were disowning me at the time....

  8. Great pictures! I think you did a wonderful job!

  9. I love your butterfly shots! They are all so beautiful! I also love your cutie dogs in the contrast shot.

    the close up spider shot though...


  10. I can spot your hart shaped cloud. I was trying to get some while in the car too. But non looked like harts on the photos.

    Would love to try Penutbutter fudge, sounds yammy.
