May Photos Day 2—Skyline

Today was a lazy day with nothing going on.  And I mean that just about as literally as it can be meant.  When I finally went out for my daily walk—at 3:00pm—I had to change out of my pajamas to do it.  And, I’m not too proud to say that once I got home, had a short work-out and shower, they went right back on. 

Everybody needs a day like that now and again, I suppose, though I had grander plans of driving into town to get a picture of the university or something to represent today’s skyline.  Still, there are lessons to be learned about not overlooking the things right in your own backyard, or, in this case, the neighbor’s back yard.  Even in a college town, there’s much more to enjoy than just the architecture and landscaping of the campus. 

With OU offering lovely brickwork, gorgeous blooming flowers, and a nationally famous football stadium, this simple scene will never make its way onto postcards for Norman.  But maybe it should.
