It's a beautiful Autumn Sunday

Autumn 2011
On my way home from Church this morning I drove past a lovely fall setting of a stand of trees with their fall colors on display.  The sun wasn't quite shining on them and they looked a little dark and worn today so I did not take a photo of them.  When I got home I looked thru the photos on my computer and found the one I took of the same trees back in autumn 2011 with the sun shining full on the trees exclaiming their beautiful fall colors of rusty red accompanied by the varied greens of the surrounding grass, trees & evergreens.  I do enjoy the autumn colors each & each year they seem to more and more Vibrant.  What a difference to our long winter weather this year and our slow start to spring.

Early morning riser

GOOD MORNING!  I've been awake since 5am & pursuing the internet, reading my emails and checking out Pintrest.  Found some great ideas for salt dough ornaments, ribbon embroidery, quilting & DIY crafts.  Gathering ideas is a great way to start my day.  I should get out of bed.  I'm hungry for breakfast - oatmeal is a good way to start my day.  Then off to quilting at the pointe with Gwen & Frank.  Maybe Cecilia will join us. (or maybe stay home to work on some illustrations for Nan's book).  Then off to the city with Raymond to check out an apartment.  Hope it isn't to chilly outside.

I'm taking advantage of this beautifu Autumn day!

Today is so beautiful out, it's 72 degrees out, sunny and breezy.  It is unusually warm for this October day so I am taking full advantage of the weather and I am out on my front porch doing some watercolors for illustrations I am doing for a Children's Book.  It is so peaceful out there. I am wearing my hat as I sit and paint to keep the sun from my eyes. Well my break is over so I need to return to the porch and paint some more.
