Twenty five minutes south of downtown Kansas City.
I am so lucky to live here. This is the stuff I see every morning. Like, on the way to the store. And preschool. And the orthodontist's office. And I think to myself, one of these days I'm going to just park at one end of this long road and walk the whole thing with my camera and take some wonderful shots. Because some day this will all be built up with subdivisions and no trees and no fences and no horses and we will talk about how these used to be horses and barns and fences and huge pastures and....
Well, I haven't done that yet. We went to the KC zoo yesterday and on the way I snapped these from behind the glass windows of the car. And even though the conditions were sub-prime, you get the idea. In this country of suburbs and urban chaos and traffic and 4 lane highways, there is still a lot of this.
And me, with my camera pressed to my face,
asking telling hubs in the most patient voice to slowdownslowdownslowdownslowdownslowdown!
We're headed out of town at the end of this week for an annual trip to Arizona. Which also means there is just a ton of work to do before I go. Office work, house work, and stuff that should have gotten done weeks ago, but must now get done because family is coming to stay with the kids so we can go play.
Hopefully the planets will align and I will get It all done before Thursday. If not, that sound you might hear in the background is just me, in my most patient voice, asking the world to slow down.
Here's to a good and very productive week. :)
