Sunday Pause (Paws): Beauty In The Cloudiness

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back and relax!

It’s been very chilly and gloomy lately here. It’s hard to be motivated and, once again, I was drawing a blank in creating a post for today. I don’t always have something to say. Luckily sometimes nature speaks for itself. I saw a bunch of birds flying around the trees and wooded area outside my home. They were chirping away and seemed to be playing…flying from one tree to another, then flying around some more, and again, landing on a tree or the grass. It was so fun to watch. I was trying to get a picture but it was NOT easy. Somehow I managed to get the picture of the bird below about to take off. It isn’t the best quality because it was a very tiny bird, a cloudy day, and I had to zoom way in. But I still was very happy to have gotten it. I actually didn’t even know I had captured it. I didn’t see the bird open its wings when I was snapping the pictures. It was when I was reviewing the images on my camera that I saw it. It was a pleasant surprise.

Sunday Pause (Paws): Sun and Colors

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back and relax.

Fall is my favorite season. It’s just too short! I know any time now all the leaves will be completely turned and off the trees. Not only that but the weather is going to get very chilly before we know it.

So I’ll take the lesson from Cino and take it easy and enjoy the warmth of the sun and the beautiful colors while I can. Pets are such great examples of slowing down and enjoying every moment.

Today we’re doing just that. We’re meeting a friend at a park. I hope to get some pics of the leaves and trees. What are your plans? 

Happy Sunday!

Sunday Pause (Paws): Autumn Is Here Once Again

It’s Sunday and autumn is here!

The most beautiful time of the year
Autumn is once again here
Take a walk and enjoy the changing trees
Under your feet hear the crunch of the leaves
Feel the warm sun among the cool breeze
Soak it in because soon comes the time to freeze

Relax and have a Happy Sunday!

Sunday Pause (Paws): Photo Fun

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy photos of the beautiful season of fall.

We have had way below average temperatures and it has been rainy and cloudy for weeks. So when I headed out with my new camera on a fall road trip it wasn’t a very ideal day. It didn’t rain but it was still very cloudy and cold. But even so, there were many beautiful trees to see despite the weather.

Along our drive we also saw different animals such as horses, cows, and deer. Continue reading

Things Are A-Changin

Things are a-changin!

We’re in that in between time where summer is ending and fall is approaching. I’m noticing a small amount of leaves turning. But with the rain we are getting today those leaves are already falling off the trees and onto the ground.

I don’t mind this weather at all! I will be spending the night under a blanket on the couch with some tea and an apple candle burning. Ahhh…the small things can be so comforting.

What’s the weather like where you are?

Sunday Pause (Paws): For Autumn, Take Two

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and really enjoy nature.

Autumn is my favorite time of year! It’s a comfortable temperature, super cozy, and absolutely beautiful. You definitely need to take a pause and look around at nature this time of year.

My family and I recently went to an arboretum to enjoy the trees changing colors. I mentioned in last Sunday’s post that I might get a few more pics before all of the leaves fall off of the trees and on this day I did.

Beautiful Fall Drive

Took a beautiful fall drive today. It started off sunny and beautiful! We drove on a lot of country roads. At one point, we drove by two horses out in a large fenced area who were on opposite sides of the fence. Then one started running toward the other one and stopped right in front of it. They were nose to nose. It was as if they were saying “hello¬†friend.” It happened really fast, and we were driving on the highway, so I didn’t catch a picture of it. But the picture below pretty much catches the moment we saw. It was beautiful!

We were starting to think we were too late for seeing fall colors. Then we caught a few beautiful hillsides and a tree with a steeple in the background.

The weather turned cloudy, cold, and windy! But it was worth it. Fall is a short season, got to get out and enjoy it!

Hope you have the beauty of the fall season to enjoy wherever you are!
