friday smiles…


October 29, 2014

october was a prickly month

but she leaves behind food for thought and seeds for food

a slightly more organized house

a long list of still-to-do

smiles and memories


sometimes you have to look hard for the beauty

a flapping crow

an orange sky

a garden aged to imperfection


a glass half full and half empty

for a thirst never satisfied

dawn’s promise of clarity

one she never keeps, of course

but still

i smile and thank her

for trying




October 24, 2014

last night i almost missed the magic…

but my husband called me outside just in time.

thanks, honey.

the dance of october


tawny whispers and simple goodbyes

another year makes plans to fly






October 20, 2014

color me autumn


crisp air, cool nights

cider and donuts

color, color everywhere


this morning on my way out to breakfast
a hot air balloon hovered in the sky
just above the nearby swamp,
huge and way down low,
an extra splash of rainbow color
in an already saturated landscape.

a missed photo opportunity, but a fabulous sight.

mother nature’s october tapestry is a feast for the eyes.

i take it in like nourishment.

the light at the end

if this week was a tunnel

(and it was)

then tonight

is the light




wishing you a weekend filled with light

gratitude leak

It’s another one of those weeks when I can’t see the forest for the trees.

Or something like that.

At least the trees are extra pretty just now.

On Monday two herons flew past my house, just at the moment
I looked out my window. They were quite low in the sky,
and one turned, just as I looked up, and flew straight over my house.

It was a gift, or a blessing, or at the very least,
enough to make me smile for a moment.

It makes me smile now just thinking about it.

A gift then.

A deep breath in a week when I can’t catch mine.

I am grateful.

mum’s the word

Well, grand-mum, actually …

And I am over the moon.


Wishing you a week filled with good surprises.

friday smile

This photo keeps making me laugh, my silly girl kitty
sleeping with the tip of her nose resting against a file box.

I kind of know how she feels, it’s been another week
with my own nose to the grindstone.

This weekend, I must remember to look up.

I hope you do, too.


Wishing you a weekend of blue skies and good times
