A Vacation

After mowing the lawn, Mollie and I decided to visit the reservoir.  In the summer, many people visit Pineview reservoir, sunning on the beach, swimming, boating, etc.  But you should visit it during the Autumn.  Clear crisp days, golden Cottonwood leaves, reflected in reflective mirror like water.

Mollie, who rarely likes to get wet, decided to walk along the shore.

Mollie and I took a vacation, an at home, hour long vacation.

Thursday - Time off

I had a day off.  In the morning, I took my car to be inspected.  Then in the afternoon,  Mollie and I went to the cabin.   We mowed the lawn and took a walk.

Autumn color, especially reds were in abundance.   Along the river, yellows could be enjoyed.  I just wanted to share a few shots of the autumn leaves and autumn landscape with you.

Waffles with black cherry jam and dark hot chocolate.

An Early Walk

The sky glows a predawn blue, scattered with pin point stars and a fingernail slivered moon, while the breeze rustles leaves that dance in silhouette.

Littered Lawn

Falling leaves litter the lawn.  The evening temperatures have dropped.  I wore a shawl on my evening walk with Mollie.  Autumn has arrived.

A Touch of Fall

A touch of autumn color is showing up on the mountain trees.  A rainstorm is expected, I already hear thunder.  The clouds have made the afternoon dark.  A good rain would be a good change and maybe brighten the autumn colors.

Only a few drops of rain fell.

Zuni Basket

My friend, basket artist Rebecca Lasiloo wove me a basket.  She delivered it this week while visiting.

Isn't it wonderful.

Quiet Evening

Mollie and I had a quiet evening at the cabin.  We took a walk.  Our cabin neighbors were enjoying the evening, chatting on their patio.  One was finishing up mowing her lawn.  Mollie and I settled in.  A short time later, Mollie informed that we had a visitor.  A doe and two yearlings visited the commons.  We watched them for a time, although Mollie would have really liked to play chase with them.  She was extremely frustrated that I would not let her out of the cabin.

The evening light moved up the mountain.
On our drive home the clouds where beautifully lit.
