This is what I see today, as I look out the window of my studio writing. Though I didn't shoot that photograph today or this year, it is pretty close to what I see out there right now. Just imagine the same scene with darker clouds and a steady rain, and you will see what I am seeing right now. What is the weather like where you are? How has the season evolved in your corner of the world so far? A couple of days ago my husband and I did the coolest thing: I noticed over the past few...

Day dream believer

339000 art blogging faith family friends gifts inspiration Kindle knitting Life love photography thoughts women

I often day-dream, and sometimes my day dreams take on a realistic, picture perfect you could even say, form. Some are ethereal thoughts that float by like a soft summer breeze, others race by my nose faster than light breaking the sound barrier on their way, still others begin as fleeting thoughts that quickly materialize into moving pictures. Very entertaining stuff, these day-dreams of mine. A couple of weeks ago I went to the village to drop off some paperwork at the library and parked in front of a recently refurbished unoccupied building.

September and October are the most beautiful months for going out on that section of the river; the water is very clear and the trees are beginning to change to their autumn splendor. While we were out we saw many Canada geese, heron, king fishers, and swans. We also saw quite a few turtles sunbathing on fallen tree trunks and limbs laying at water's edge. The temperature was cool, but not cold and we...

I wore a wool hat

It has already been chilly enough recently, I wore a wool hat a couple of times last week. AndiIt is just now the last day of summer.  I remember the first year I was in New York, we went to my husband's nephew's farm--a couple of hours south of us-- for a pig roast in mid-August and camped out a couple of nights.  It got down into the 40's both nights and we were freezing all night long; mid-August. That funny little hand knit skirt I was making last week for Sweet Pea is finished now, but she didn't want...
