SATURDAYS CRITTERS and also I'D RATHER B BIRD'IN
Wednesday, November 16, 2016
This past weekend was such a wonderful time. We had the privilege once again , of going up to our cabin, and the weather was just wonderful. The road going to our cabin is 3 miles long, and is a dirt road. We always get such a wonderful feeling of peace as we are arriving... the sense of being home once again in a place of quiet and protection. Because of the dirt road, there is always a lot of dust flying around, and on the way in, I loved the murkiness of the sunset over the hills. This year, there has not been as much color as we usually see in the mountains... maybe because of not enough rain, but definitely different than most years, so it took a little more effort when out with my camera to find "FALL". I always love the lake near our cabin, and it is so quiet and serene as we are on the lakeshore, and the colors in the hills stand out brightly against the greens of summer and the lake which is so clear.
I love the fall reflections in Cucumber Creek, which is near our cabin... the sound of the quiet fall waters burbling past as we watch. Don't you love seeing the stability and firmness of the earth underneath the traveling waters. Love watching the solitary colorful leaves floating past lazily.
We had the privilege of seeing a large flock of migratory birds, circling above us in the cerulean blue sky of fall. Was excited when a friend with us easily identified these birds as pelicans, on their way I think , to the Texas coast. They were kind of funny because as we watched for the longest time, they just flew around in circles. My husband said they were resetting their compass. Not sure about that, but they were definitely not making much progress. Maybe they were just resting on the mountain updrafts.
Had a great day on Sunday as we headed up to the Talimena Drive and walked a path through the woods. Love the crunch of the leaves underfoot, and the browns, oranges, and greens of Fall. I always think of the coming Thanksgiving holiday when I am walking in the woods in the fall, as when I was a little girl, I loved walking in t he woods at my grandmothers house after Thanksgiving dinner. Loved seeing the mushrooms, lichen, and colors of the trees as we walked. Could also smell some woodsmoke from someones chimney as we walked along with our two puppies, Maggie and Zeke in the woods. Love that cozy smell in the fall.
Night brought on the supermoon, or Harvest moon as i call it, and thought it looked so gorgeous riding high in the sky. Such beauty God provides for us in our daily lives.
Then home to the cabin for some hot tea and some reflection time on all of the blessings in my life. More than I can count!
