Autumn Beauty

My daughter and I headed over to the duck pond this afternoon and I took some photos of some absolutely gorgeous autumn colors. We also rescued some fish that had become stranded in a shallow pool of water. My daughter, a huge animal lover, was very proud of us for helping the poor little things. We relied on our ingenuity to get the little guys back into the pond which included picking them up with our bare hands, but hey, it was an adventure, as my daughter reminded me.

Writing is going well so far - got some good words done last night and tonight. It helps when it's chilly outside, I've got my classical music going, and my sugar cookie-scented candle (though it does make me hunger for the real thing!).

Enjoy the photos and the rest of your weekend!


  1. One thing I love about your pictures is that I get to see how well you live life. Gorgeous. Congrats on writing!

  2. It sounds like a great day out for you both. I love the photos too.

  3. It's the best time of year, isn't it? Beautiful photos, you had a perfect day, immersed in fall!

  4. Great pixs! The leaves are starting to change here too. I love this time of year. Crisp weather and beautiful autumn scenery. Can't beat it!

  5. Such lovely pictures! And the first commenter is right, they show us so well how full of life you and your daughter are. Thanks for reminding me how beautiful and fun getting outside can be!

  6. Life really IS in the details, isn't it? Lovely.


I love to hear from you!
