Nature almost always plays a part in a really good day for me. This morning’s walk on our nature trail included a rainbow cloud. It is a fairly rare phenomenon. It’s a little miracle to me that I was in the right place at the right time to get to see this.
It is so deeply satisfying to be able to go for a hike in the mountains, especially on the spur of the moment – because we live here. Husband and I did just that this morning. With back and knee support my body responded well to climbing up and down repeatedly.
With so much gratitude we have been enjoying a cool, rainy summer. For us, living in the mountains can be like mostly being on vacation because living in nature provides a feeling a sense of calm. It’s a natural paradise.
This is totally natural Crystal showing her magnificent colors naturally – visible from our garden, my writing nook, our front deck – nothing was done to enhance any of my Crystal Peak photographs – we get to live with this view and we don’t take it for granted.
Elsa and Joy – my little charge and my dog. I’ve been Elsa’s nanny / tutor since she was two-years-old, almost seven years now. Joy has always watched over Elsa. What we pass on to a child – that’s what matters.
