Waves in the Heartland

In the middle of land locked Illinois, the only waves we really get to see on routine basis - the gentle waves of prairie grass swaying in the breeze.


We've been enjoying another warm spell - it was warm enough this morning to wear shorts while running (well, at 45DegF it was warm enough for me). The morning sun is so luminescent on days like today.


Today, I'm thankful for the beautiful weather and the beautiful light.


Linked up today with Deb Duty and This or That Thursday.

Beautiful light Shirley! RYC: We did get hit with that Nor'easter. We were without power for 36 hrs. and our daughter and son-in-law for 4 days. Nasty stuff!
