Blue Monday

Blue Monday is a good description of this particular day of the week. I'm always ready to hop out of bed in the early morning hours on Saturday, Sunday and holidays, but come Monday morning and I'm pounding the snooze button on the alarm. I guess I don't want to miss out on a minute of freedom and don't mind missing a few minutes of a work day.

We  had a foggy morning one day last week. I took this shot from the back driveway as I was leaving for work. We live at the edge of our small town, only 1/2 block from this corn field. Once the fog cleared, we had a beautiful blue sky kind of day.
There is a photo contest coming up and I'm thinking of entering, so spent some time over the weekend looking through my pics. The categories are Country Life, Patriotic, and People. I found a couple worthy of entering, but need to get them framed.

This isn't a contender, but I have a thing for hot air balloons. This one was floating along above us as we were leaving my son's house in Franklin, TN last summer.  In my younger years, I wanted to take a ride. Now I merely enjoy watching them. Ride anyone?

I love your image of the tree by the gate with the paddock behind. I envy you living in a small town. I think I should have moved and done that years ago.
All the best for the photo comp.
And have a wonderful week. I am not sure if I got back to you after you visited my blog last week - I have got behind.
