Sunset so Bright

There are many nice things in any given day. But one of my favorite things is a beautiful sunset. When I see a beautiful sunset, one where the colors are vibrant or bright… it can make a bad day better or a good day great.

Hubby and I got to see a beautiful one a couple nights ago coming home from running errands in the city. We were fairly close to home and I looked over and saw this…

Sunset

The sun was just setting and throwing beautiful and brightly colored light over the mountain and into the sky. The clouds were wispy, fluffy, and so light. I made hubby pull over so I could get a couple pictures, but he didn’t mind. It was a good excuse for him to take a moment to enjoy it as well.

I hope you had a great week and that the coming week is full of blessings 🙂

Beauty Filled

There are some day when you look for your beautiful sunset… good days to end it beautifully or bad days when the sunset reminds you of the hope of tomorrow.

The above sunset I captured while on an anniversary trip with hubby in September. We were in South Carolina for this particular wedding anniversary trip and the sunsets were beautiful. Each day there were different colors and the mood of each sunset was equally calming. I took a lot of pictures on this trip and I hope to start sharing them and showing you some of the beauty I captured on our love trip 🙂 Have a beauty filled week 🙂

God Smiles

Today is another therapy dog day. Baxter seems excited to be going somewhere and he has a special friend joining us. The day started out foggy… So foggy I couldn’t even see the neighbors barn. It is sleeting a little and rainy, but I am glad no snow as the chickens can still get out. I also can’t complain considering I know a lot of you are having lots of snow . The sun sets have been quite pretty in our part of the country despite the bad weather.Sky shine

I always look at the rays coming out of the cloud and am grateful for all the gifts God has given us. The rays just seem like a smile from God 🙂 I hope you have a blessed and warmer Saturday 🙂

A hard days work…

As I said in my blog yesterday my mom and her husband came up yesterday to celebrate her birthday weekend. Last night we took her out for a walk and shopping in old town Frederick and then out to dinner. We had a fun time 🙂

Today it was chore day… not that I wanted my mom to work on her birthday weekend, but we needed to get the deck painted, they volunteered to help this weekend, so that’s what we did. We painted the back deck and front porch. They look so nice now. Sorry I didn’t take photos, but I was so busy working and didn’t want to get paint on my camera. I did get a picture of this bee when we got done….

Tomorrow is back to work for me and mom travels home… but first I will be fixing her a wonderful breakfast as it is her real birthday day tomorrow:)

Have a blessed week everyone 🙂

Rainy day…

It’s raining today. I don’t always like rainy Saturday as it usually interferes with what I have to do and I get a major headache from them. Today I am ok with the rain as I need to clean house and get things back in order after our trip. I thought today would be a good one to share some more of my photos from our trip… Hope you enjoy !

I love this tire off a tractor that was getting repainted…

I took this picture as it reminds me of a barn that as a child I would have loved to pop in and out of the windows as a game.

This is one of those lovely evening sky.

This was the large sky I love in this part of the country.

My conference I went to yesterday was long, but very educational. I didn’t get home till 9 PM and was so tired I went to bed. I hope you have a good Saturday!

There is no place like Home…

I am sure when we all hear these words we think of The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy, and the yellow brick road. Today I thought of how true these words are for me coming home from our recent trip to Nebraska. I missed our dogs, chickens, my bed, and just being in my own space. I think the best part of being in your own place is the sense of freedom you can do what you need without needing to ask so you do not disturb someone else space too much. It was great to go outside on a beautiful day like today play with the pups in the yard, watch the chickens, and work in the yard getting things set up for spring.

I also found some on the vegetables I planted this past fall have come back and I am looking forward to cooking them.

It was a lovely day and a great start to the weekend.

I wanted to share some more photos of my trip as I got so many neat pictures. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Thanks for reading, your comments, and visiting my blog 🙂 Happy Weekend!
