No Whining.. Just Do It!

I know.. I know! But this was cool. I snagged it from Drew. What can I tell you.. I'm a bit tapped at the moment creatively. I blame it on all the Advil I've had to take to deal with these stupid injuries. I took this photo on our last camping trip. It was Saturday afternoon and Mr. Man and B were out in the canoe, while Ms. Thang slept on the beach, The Boy read a magazine and I worked on the afghan for nephew to be named at a later date. Isn't it gorgeous?? It was rather chilly for August that day, and the sky looked so menacing. Enjoy!
