first of all thank you to so many of you whom left loving comments
about my intruder, the comments were really appreciated. I felt very uneasy the next morning,
so hubby did put the storm windows on. After talking to our neighbor he realized he had
been broken in and they had managed to get both of their mountain bikes.
Also looking around in our yard there were a bunch of items sitting on a bench that
looked like the crooks had set there ready to take their loot once they got things
out of the house...even if you can believe it a basketball.
We had planned to get away for a few days
and now I did not want to go,
but we did and oh the peace and relaxation
were just what I needed.
My hubby too,
he works so hard taking care of us both.
So here we are on our way to my favorite place,
Most of our three days away were
spent walking the trails, sitting on benches,
drawing, feeding the ducks, shopping,
and even found time for my much needed naps,
although it is very hard to force yourself to rest
when your in a place like this.
The mountains in the background are known as
The Three Sisters,
always makes me think of my two sisters and I,
speaking of sisters we had a lovely
Thanksgiving Supper at my younger sisters house on Monday evening
and had a lovely visit with both sisters before we headed to our destination.
One of my joys was feeding the ducks,
at one point I was sitting on the ground
and there were 16 ducks not more than a foot away.
some of them were getting a little aggressive with one another
as they were fighting over food,
The one above is a male, easy to tell because of the beautiful bright colors,
When all the food ran out, He looked at me in disgust
as if to say what, thats all you brought with you laaaady.
I actually got up off the ground, after all they are wild,
and I did not want to be writing a story about some ducks
having my butt for lunch,
there is only so much of my stories you would believe.
It was get up or Qwack up!
Now at about 430 the second day we were standing on the balcony taking pictures
and check this out,
this streak of light took a couple of minutes to go behind the mountains,
we are still not sure what it was, it was beautiful and we were thrilled to get it on camera.
On Thursday the weather was 22 degrees Celcius,
a gorgeous day! Everyone was in shorts.
Friday am when we woke up to leave,
we woke up to this, beautiful yes but a little early
and such an extreme from the day before.
All the ducks were no where to be found.
and this is what we ended up driving into
just for the first hour of the day,
By the time we made it home,
none of the white stuff had made its way here.
So we are going to do some yard work this weekend,
as I know anything is possible at this time of the year.
When we arrived home I had that uneasy feeling walking into the house
just for a moment as I remembered the attempted break in.
After a deep breath I felt safe and sound
and glad to be home.
Take care for now,
hope you are all well,
Will get by to read your blogs over the weekend.
I hope you have your greatest of days!
