It is a good thing that I decided to do a Project 52 because even posting once a week has proven to be difficult. Work, taking care of mom, and several side projects have really taken over my life lately. I try to stop in on twitter once in a while just to stay connected but it seems that all my friends there are crazy busy as well. At least I feel better knowing that I am not alone! It must be in the air 🙂
It has still been nasty and raining around here but we are supposed to be getting some sunshine this week and I am looking forward to it. The flooding in our area was getting bad and very dangerous so we really need the rain to go on hiatus. I like a rainy day but only if I can stay in curled up with a good book or the remote control.
The photo I am posting today is another cemetery shot on yes another rainy day. I have found myself drawn to cemeteries lately and I am not sure why. I love really old places with beautiful stones and monuments. I love looking at the dates and finding last names that I have never heard of.
I don’t have much to say today lol! I was so unproductive today I am happy that I even remembered to post. Enjoy the photo and I hope tomorrow I will find time to catch up with everyone!!
I was driving around Jeffersonville and I passed up this road line with trees and benches and I immediately had to make a u-turn and go back. It was such a peaceful and beautiful scene and well, we all know how much I love repetition. The funny part of this photo was me and my friend trying to come up with a name for it… lets just say my articulate and very intelligent friend came up with “nice day”! As you can see I didn’t use that stellar idea, maybe next time!
By the way, I sill have “Come Sail Away” stuck in my head 🙂
Ah the fall trees, I will be so sad when they are all gone. I couldn’t resist this pretty row of trees along the side of the road with the beautiful sky framing them. I know I have said this a million times but I could live in fall weather forever. I honestly can’t believe it is almost Thanksgiving though, this year has flown by and I am not sure where it went. Any of you feel like that?
Today was a rather difficult day for me. Through the last several years I spent a lot of time traveling to shows and I met a lot of wonderful people. Some of them I only met once and some have become my family, but most of them I keep up with in one way or the other through facebook or twitter. It is like an extended network of friends and family that I never thought I would have but feel so grateful for.
One of the women that I met several years back passed away this week very suddenly and it has hit me in a way I didn’t expect. She was a wonderfully sweet woman, and although we weren’t close friends she was always fun to talk with and she was incredibly kind to me and my sister when my sister was diagnosed with breast cancer. I will never forget that and I hope her family has that type of kindness with them now as they go through this very difficult time. It was the suddenness that really hit me hard and of course that type of tragedy always makes you take stock. I hate that it takes something like this to make us appreciate those around us but I am also grateful to have the opportunity to let those I care about know just how much I love them.
We aren’t promised tomorrow so remember to end your day with kindness!
I took another photo while on a walk today around my neighborhood. I tell ya I am spending lots of time with my iPhone camera, and so grateful to have it. I love my Canon but it isn’t practical to always have it with me. I am still searching for fall colors everywhere I go and luckily the sun and this tree cooperated with me today 🙂
This is probably the reason my mom hates fall but I think it is beautiful. In her defense though it takes forever to rake her leaves because they are huge, unnaturally huge leaves. I have no clue what type of tree it is but man alive it covers everything. Having said that, again it is still quite pretty 🙂
I did not take photos today so I had to scrounge around to find something and this is what I came up with. I was busy with a scary movie marathon today with yummy snacks and fantastic company so I don’t feel so bad for not taking photos lol
Hope you all had a wonderful Halloween!!
