Indiankill Nature Preserve

Saturday afternoon we took a break from working in the yard to take Molly over to the nature preserve. It is right around the corner from where we live & has always been one of my favorite walks. It i s very hilly so is quite a good work-out. It has been very dry this spring so the Indiankill doesn't have the usual amount of water in it.

I'm not sure if this is a butterfly....there was a lot of them around but I didn't have the zoom lens with me so this is as close as I could get.

This is the waterfalls & Molly just freaked out & ran around like crazy!

When she finally came out of the water she rolled around in the dry leaves & then started all over again!

This gives you an idea of how steep parts if the trail is.

We call this "heartbreak hill"!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…


Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
