Let's Have Another Piece of Pie

Sometimes life cries out for a nice break from the daily routine …… a pie break, a taste of sweetness.

Friday in The Burg

It is Friday.  The weather has warmed to a normal temperature.  The sky is blue and the sun is bright.

Tomorrow an old friend is stopping by for a night, with her daughter and doggie, on their way to a new adventure in the eastern part of our country.

I love catching up with old friends.  Facebook just isn’t enough.

I must go and prepare.  Here is a picture of a building I found in The Burg.  Honestly, I have no idea of the history of this painting.  If someone knows, please, let me know.  I have been fascinated by this since we moved here.

I love old brick buildings.  I love the hidden stories that can come from them………

Brick Building - Go UCM Mules!

Oh the Weather Outside is Frightful

Hello All.  I’ve been busy with the grand-girls so I haven’t been posting very much.

It has been cold this last week here, in The Burg.  Highs in he twenties and lows are well, lower.  But later this week we should be back to normal.  High will get up into the forties.  Yay!

We were expecting our first snow yesterday but only got flurries.  Today a bit fell, so I took the opportunity to go to my lily pond.

I’m entering winter a little slowly with heels planted in the ground.  I had such a wonderful summer this year that I felt it shouldn’t be over.  But all good things……. well, I don’t really believe that all good things must come to an end.  But winter is upon us and it is needed.

Enjoy your seasons, wherever you live.  There is a purpose to them.

Enjoy!

Transitions

Autumn is still here but the trees and the colors have definitely transitioned to a wintry look.  Sad in a lot of ways, but still beautiful.

These pictures were taken in Knob Noster State Park .  We were the only two people there.  I love that, but I feel like people are missing out on great views of nature and fresh air.  Oh well, I can call it my park ;)

Enjoy!

A Peaceful Place

It is just about three months since we moved to The Burg.  Our house feels like home for us and the dogs and the grand girls who come Monday through Friday.

So, now what? Because of the schedule with the girls I don’t get out and about too much during the week.  So now that we are “settled”, well, what do we do now?  I is so easy to get too settled in the routine of life.  We need different stimuli.  We have met and friended a couple of people and it is always good when we get together and just visit.

Today we got out into the fresh autumn air at The Springs, one of my favorite places here.  The view is slowly changing through fall and soon winter.  This place exudes peace.   When I need to clear my head and heart and ponder……….a peaceful place is for me.  And this is it.

Please enjoy my photos – I know you’ve seen them before in summer view – I walked down along the lake and enjoyed the changing scenery.

 

Enjoy!

Autumn Continues to Arrive in The Burg

Here we are at mid-October in The Burg.  Leaves are still slowly turning and some falling fast.  Temperatures are pleasant and cool and the air is fresh.

Here are a few images taken with my iPhone while I wait for our maple tree to bloom into bright colour.

Enjoy!

The Sound of Silence

I decided to post ten sounds that I absolutely love.

Here goes……

*  the sound of ocean waves crashing

*  the sound of an owl in the middle of a quiet night – hoot

*  the giggles of grandchildren

*  the sound of rain on the awnings outside my window

*  the sound of food simmering on the stove

*  the sound of music (not the movie – just music)

*  the sound of leaves rustling in the breeze

*  the sound of horse hooves on the pavement

*  the sound of fog ( to me there is a sound accompanying the fog )

*  and my favorite of all time – The Sound of Silence – to me the sound of silence is when a lovely snow is falling and you step        outside and just stand there and listen – it’s a “kind of hush” - a sound of silence.

What are some of your favorite sounds?

Enjoy!
