Day 35 - Humidity on the lake

This photo is not because of the camera - it's the humidity :) This was taken as we drove into town yesterday... and it's how it looks much of the time. Our lovely views are not clear and bright, but hazy with humidity. And this was a nice sunny day. Things close around you are crisp and clear - but the distance views are almost always hazy. It's amazing that I got the nice clear photo that I've used at the top of the blog.... it's always such a nice surprise when the humidity is lower and the views brighter.

Day 34 - Emma Grace in a basket

I put this basket on my coffee table to put my cross stitch in - finally gave up on that as Emma Grace was determined to use it for her own purposes. I finally put a piece of soft fabric in and she's a happy camper.

Day 33 - Guntersville Museum

Finally, we've saved something and "recycled" it instead of tearing it down. This is the OLD armory - built of stone and huge. It was abandonded 20 odd years ago when a new armory was built. Last year the city finally decided to allow the museum to use it. They've done an excellent job inside (and outside too) - and now have tons of space.

I took this photo from the Library parking lot - and the rock wall you see is the 'driveway' around the building.

Day 32 - Georgia Mtn Community Center

Are you impressed? I can see this little building from my house - and it's my polling place for elections. Spiffy huh!!

Day 31 - local hospital

Wanted to get an early start today as my dd and grandson are coming today for a visit.... and since I haven't missed a day yet (hint to some other 365ers) didn't want to start now.

This is our local hospital - about 5 miles from my house. Couldn't get a really good shot because of the big trees (but I love the trees). It's a 'rural' hospital, actually between two towns and services the north part of the county. 80+ beds I think. However, my hospital stays and cancer treatments in the last couple of years have been in Huntsville (35 miles away).

Day 30 - School has started

Actually, it started last Thursday (8/7), but today was the first day I was behind a school bus. I was almost home :)

Day 29 - Horse Farm

Well, next to the pasture with the donkeys is a horse farm. Though there were no horses visible when I went by today. They have "Paso Finas".
