Rain, Rain, Rain

Days of rain and still raining and over 6 inches has hit the ground so far. Fields look like lakes, ponds are full to the brim, ditches are running like rivers.

If you look real hard you can see the rain hitting the water in this pond on the North side of my house.  This pond has not been this full for a very long time.

Relaxing in Nature

My husband and I decided to take a day before Thanksgiving and go enjoy the off season at the lake again.  It was a cold day, but absolutely great and not another soul around to break the silence.

My husband said he was taking in this great view and enjoying the cup of coffee he was holding.

We were near the dam and I took this picture of the sun reflecting on the water.

As we walked back to the truck, I threw up my arms up and said, “Wow, what a beautiful sunny day, listen to that peace and quiet.”

I envy those who have homes around the lake and see this beautiful view every day.  Especially during the off season when the lake is so calm and peaceful.

We drove over by the boat marina and snapped a picture of some of the boats in their slips.

I think everyone should take a day or two during these busy holidays, just to go enjoy life and destress.

 

Life Is Fragile

When you have lost someone close to you.  When you have watched friends and family leave this earth, you realize how fragile life can be.  I saw this spider web in the sunlight with the green tree as a background. As I took this photo, this spider web made me think how fragile life is. IMG_3299The next day this spider web was blown away by wind and rain during the storms that roared through Arkansas last Wednesday.  That is how life is, here one day and gone the next.  Cherish those you love, life is fragile.
