Fall Dining Room

I walk by here every day and see this table in the park. I very rarely, no matter what day or time of day, see anyone sitting at it. This morning the light on it was beautiful and I had to take a picture of it.

It had rained off and on all night. The light was golden and the fallen leaves gave it a carpet with colours I'd die to have in my own dining room.

Pampas Grass

Between two rows of houses is this patch if pampas grass. The blades and seed pods are easily 8 feet tall. There could've been an elephant hiding in there all summer and no on would have been the wiser. I see it on my walk every day and think about how to get a creative picture of it.

I guess sometimes it's all about waiting for the right moment and having patience because this is what presented itself this morning. A ray of sunlight pushing through the light morning fog between two houses to bathe only three of the seed heads in golden light while leaving the rest of the scene in shadow except for where the sun hit the cut grass in the foreground. An artist's dream!

Makes me want to work on my patience bone.

Thanksgiving Breakfast

There are lots of things to be thankful for on Thanksgiving. One is that I have a home and enough to eat.

Met a homeless man this morning on Princess St and gave him breakfast money. After hearing Myra speak at Trinity Bible Church last week about her ministry knitting blankets and hats for homeless people it makes you look a second time. He had the dark clothing that just blends in... All of that. I couldn't not give him something.

Saw these morning glories in the lovely light in front of an old brick mansion on a wrought iron fence and the small wasps visiting for breakfast and had to take a picture to remind myself how lucky I am.

Thanksgiving this year has the potential to be incredibly sad and lonely but thankfully I'm being blessed with all sorts of wonders that lift my spirits and leave me grateful to be me.

Thankful for Dahlias

I have seen these dahlias on my street for days now & have wanted to take a photo if them but couldn't until today.

I stopped and knocked on the door to ask if I could and a very nice older Italian couple gave me the permission I was after. And now that I know how to post a photo on my blog from my phone I am doubly happy!

Happy Thanksgiving.
