Hope all of you are doing splendid and have had a good cup of coffee to start your day. I am getting use to working a new little part time job and find that my painting and blogging have been suffering. You wouldn't think that 3 days a week would be so hard to get use to!!! Anyway...the other morning I got up early and was watering my plants and noticing how beautiful the sunlight was on the water droplets. I love the way photos turn out in the early morning and later in the evening. The way the light casts itself on things is so perfect. (not necessarily my photography skills) So I took a couple of shots that I wanted to share...

We were doggy sitting for our neighbors while they took their son to college. I had so much fun with my little friend here. Her name is Sandy and she is such a sweet dog. She loves sitting in the warm sunshine and I thought this was such a cute picture of her.

After watering the plants and walking Sandy I went out to pick blackberries and came home and made a yummy blackberry cobbler. It was so good... I love blackberries.

I forgot to take the picture of it after it came out of the oven and needless to say...there was nothing to take a picture of by the time I remembered!
So that's what I've been up to...hopefully you are all doing well and gearing up for back to school and a little more routine. I think I'll miss the slipped by a little too fast and my boys grew a little too much. SLOW DOWN with the growing!!! Take time to smell the flowers today.


  1. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm blackberries!!!!!!! LOve em too...must try find where I can pick me some as not yet discovered any around me locally.

    yes you are right, we were certainly on the same wavelength today...excepting that I MUCH prefer summer to autumn so feel a little put out that September is here!

  2. I know what you mean about the light...there's something so special about the first and last light of the day. And you've captured it beautifully! Makes me want to get to bed NOW so I can get up in time to enjoy it tomorrow! Beautiful photos (including the evening ones in the next post!) and Sandy is so cute I can't stand it. Good luck getting used to those 3'll get a rhythm going again. Thanks for the smiles!
