point of view
L - Nikon / T- Nikon
not coincidental picture posting - we took these on the same day - just different view points

I drove up to Athens yesterday afternoon for a spontaneous visit with T. We met at the bookstore because T had finished another book and was looking for a new one to start, then to TJMaxx were she had picked out 2 littles dresses she wanted. After shopping we went to the local coffee shop and sat outside in the warm sun. It was a perfectly beautiful day and we had no time schedule so we sat and talked, and talked - she told me what was going on in her life and I gave her my point of view on a few things she was dealing with, she told me about her new classes for next year, etc and I told her about my late night workings and how sore I was from boot camp that morning, then we decided to go out for dinner. We wanted to try the new mexican restuarant, Taqueria Del Sol, but it was closed. So we went across the street to the famous "The Grit". As we walked back to the car we noticed that Taqueria Del Sol was open. This was the 2nd time we'd tried to eat there. Maybe next time we'll pay attention to the hours. / after dinner i took mom to my favorite thrift store, angora. i always find things there that i want. today it was a beautiful mannequin head that i coveted, she really spoke to me. but she was $80. guess i'll have to save my money. we still had daylight so we decided to drive to watkinsville just to see what we could find. she'd see lots of beautiful old homes and farm land and i'd see abandoned house possibilities. we did see some places that we'd like to explore more closely another time. we both saw lots and lots of cows. i had mom pull over ... there was the cutest little calf i'd ever seen right by the fence. he was all brown except for his face which was all white face. he was dancing around so playfully. the minute i got close he ran away. we stood there just observing the way cows interact, or rather don't. there were alot of babies running around but none of them would come up to the fence. we took some photos and by this time the sun was fading so we drove back to my dorm and mom went home. it was a nice day.
The photos on the left are taken by me, Leslye, the mother. The photos on the right are taken by my daughter, Taylor – unless otherwise noted. Comments are always welcome. thanks
If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
