By the Lake…

This is my blurb for Tuesday October 22nd…

We stood mesmerized by the way the bright sunlight sparkled on the calmly rippling water.. We could have stood there forever and enjoyed the still, stress re-leaving, calmness around us… We were immersed in the beauty that held us in it’s grip.. Mother Nature was showing off her beauty on this Fall day.. With her warm finger tips, she touched each tree, turning them to golds, reds, coppers, and yellows.. Our eyes took in the colors around us.. 

DSCN2563 (2).JPGEvery part of the lake drew us in to it’s beauty..

DSCN2517 (2).JPGThis was God’s country and we had a front row seat…

 

DSCN2533 (2).JPGSo much to see in such a large space…

DSCN2518 (2).JPGA feast for the eyes…

DSCN2537 (2).JPGThis photo was extra ordinary.. I see this photo as a painting and not your typical photograph….

We have a sweet little Pug that has a mind of her own.. When she doesn’t want to do anything, or go near water she will plant her feet and not move.. We took a walk through the woods on a trail. Our Pug did really well until the walk back to the car came around.. Our sweet little Pug was done, pooped out, and dragging her little butt as she walked.. She would stop, rest up and then move on a bit further.. Needless to say the trek back to the car took longer than we had expected.. 

DSCN2525 (2).JPGThis photo shows just how beautiful the lake really is and how close we are to the water.. 

As you can see, our Pug is not going any closer to the water.. I guess the vastness of the body of water must have freaked her out.. She was ‘NOT’ going any closer to that water.. Her feet are planted firmly in one spot.. Her harness is being strained by the tension on the leash.. She is quite funny and we had some pretty good laughs over her stubbornness.. Even when I pick this photo to share with all of you I could not help but laugh again.. Each one of our pups have quirks all their own… All in all we enjoyed our time spent at the lake that day..:) 🙂

I will leave everyone with well wishes, and blessings for a good day on this Tuesday October 22nd.. Keep safe and help others when you can.. Till Wednesday, keep movin’ on.. 🙂 🙂

Impending storm…

This is my banter for Wednesday August 21st…

Hi there:: It’s really nice to see all your smiling faces out there.. How was your Tuesday?? I hope it was great, and another day gone this week.. We are on Hump Day, and there is no other way to go from here but to the weekend.. It’s funny how people use the weekend as carrot to get them through the week.. It was the only way I could get through the week when I used to work.. Then, when the weekend comes, there is not enough time to do all the things you like to do on your time off.. We all shuffle our feet, pouting, kicking and screaming all the way back to work on Monday.. I vote for four day weeks and long weekends every week.. Now a days, there is very little time for family. We hustle here and there, for this and that.. Whatever happened to just saying, to heck with it all and just kick back and relax.. We all strive too much for the all mighty dollar.. The more we have, the more we want.. That includes me as well.. Life is too short.. Tomorrow, could be our last day.. As morbid as it seems that’s how life goes.. I long for the Sunday dinner, and nothing but family time.. It’s a waste to have given that up for our desirer to be rich.. I don’t know if any body thinks or feels the same as I do.. Life is passing by way too fast.. I’m getting older, and haven’t quite come to terms with that..

Tuesday was a hot one in my part of the world.. Kind of muggy. But, curiously there was a warm yet calming breeze.. I ventured out to water the plants, and hang out with the dogs. The skies above look pretty dark at times, but there was no rain.. After dinner we watched the news and found out that our area is right on the tail of a storm.. About thirty minutes ago the rain fell in large drops, but only lasted a bit of time.. The good old weather man said the storm was going to be a big one. He gave everyone a few  signs to watch out for in the skies.. When the rain was tapping on the gazebo, the sky was greenish black, with the sun shining off in the distance.. That may have been it.. If that’s the case, that’s a bonus.. At this point there is a lot of the day to go through.. There maybe more rain.. I would be very unhappy if I woke up with the wind slapping against the bedroom window. With things flying every where.. That’s not a way to wake up.. I’m crossing my fingers and hoping that doesn’t happen.. Whatever happens I will be here snuggled in with the dogs.. Where ever you are I hope and pray that you are safe..

DSCN1597.JPG               This is Sun flower plant…

There is a story to this plant.. It started to grow in spring, in a pot on the deck after the winter.. We had no idea what it could be, nor how it got there.. I didn’t plant it, nor did my hubby.. It just appeared in the pot.. While it was growing the top of the plant was snipped off and taken by a nasty squirrel.. Not only did it take off the top, it took it with him.. We figured that was the end of the plant.. We did not get rid of it, we just left it there on the deck.. A few weeks ago the plant started to get blossoms on it.. During the time that happening, we found out what the plant was… Guess what it is a Sun flower.. So, the mystery of the unknown plant has been solved.. My day has been a slow one with not too much to do.. I played that nerve bending game. I won a couple times but now I am stuck in the same place.. Crap!!! I’ve almost been near the point of deleting it off my device.. But that would make me feel like a quitter.. No way will I let this game beat me.. ‘I will fight to the end!’ ‘I don’t know if my nerves can last that long.’ So, if you see me wondering around the streets in a daze, you will know the game won.. Till later.. Take care of those you love, and never take a wooden nickel… 🙂 🙂

I would like to thank all those who read my banter each day.. 🙂 🙂  The photos in my banter have been taken by myself.. Hope you enjoy them.. 🙂 🙂
