A Perfectly Lovely Afternoon

It's just as well I decided to put yesterday's post up early because the internet went down sometime yesterday afternoon. 
 I tried to get on last night to catch up with a few blogs when I couldn't get on.  
This doesn't happen very often but when it does it's just a wee bit annoying.

Anyway it came back on at around lunchtime today. So here I am - trouble is I'm off to work in an hour.

Because yesterday was such a lovely day I didn't want to waste it by being indoors so I decided to walk round to my mum and dad's - about a 20 minute walk each way. 
So,  I got to enjoy the lovely weather, get some exercise (and a couple of pictures) and see my mum and dad a definite win win situation. :))

I only managed to get  a couple of pictures worth posting. 
I love these dandelion shots and couldn't make my mind which I preferred - so I posted them both :)

These next two have a strange colour cast to them - I tried to fix it but they still look a bit strange, in fact I've probably made them look worse.
But I liked the ploughed field and the grassy field in the distance and of course that lovely blue sky

I had a nice blether (chat) with my mum and dad catching up with what they have been up to had a very nice cup of coffee and no biscuit :))  
Then I enjoyed my walk back home.  
A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.  
Now I just have all the housework to do that I should have been doing  - oh well!!!

I like the second dandelion photo best - we always used to call them 'wet the beds' when we were little!

I like dandelions and grow plenty in my yard. I would have been excommunicated from my neighborhood in Dallas, but here no one cares. lol Looks like a beautiful walk, and who wouldn't rather be walking than cleaning? Not me!
Betty Roan said…
That should be Me! Love to walk, hate to clean. lol

Hi Lisa,

It sounds like you had a wonderful afternoon with your parents. Sometimes chores take a back seat. Loved your peaceful grassy pictures.
