Expanding my horizons...

It is a delicious Friday morning. Delicious iced coffee, delicious crisp morning air, and the promise of the weekend. Good stuff.

You know, more than any other time in my life I find that my camera goes absolutely everywhere with me. I thought this pursuit would be more about the writing but it is the ultimate show and tell. A picture is worth a thousand words, they say. I know my neighbors must laugh when they see me skulking around in the yard night after night with camera in hand. I find myself looking at things in ways that I never did before. Sometimes I write these posts in my head long before they are typed out here.

I actually stop and look at the sunsets... and best of all I get to share them with you. I guess you can say I am expanding my horizons. Here is where I took some time to sit and relax last night. The air was already a tiny, tiny bit crisp as the sun went down. Perhaps that feeling was more wishful thinking than real, but I know it is coming soon. I have not seen any orange leaves but this orange sky assures me that autumn is just over the horizon...


I hope everyone has a wonderful, delicious Friday. The weekend is here and the possibilities are endless. That is always how I feel. This weekend will be filled with family and fun for me...I wish the same and more for all of you.

LOL! I always wonder what my neighbors are thinking too, as I'm out there with camera in hand. Your photos are beautiful! We have a tree turning yellow already and dropping leaves. There are red leaves here and there on maple trees in the area too. Fall is a comin'!

Have a wonderful weekend!!! Hugs!!!

I loved the crisp cooler air as well...you are right though, it was delish!!! Is that an antique gasoline or petrol pump I see in one of the photos? I am environmental research analyst and a certified underground stroage tank specialist. I love it when you stop by to visit me as well. I hope you have a great time this weekend and please know I am right there with you on this blogging stuff. I love it and I love the way it makes me look at life now. I am not so sure about my kiddos though...I have become camera crazy.

I am such a morning person! I really enjoy having a cup of coffee on the porch when the air is beginning to get crisp, and the sun is coming up over the horizon:) Of course, I also like to the mid-day temp. to hover around 80!!

Beautiful pictures:)
