Walks of Love With a Wild Sunset While Being Hot and Humid

August 15 2020

After dinner walk with Lillian last Thursday. Love these walks.

August 16 2020

Wild sunset last night. Sounds like it was mostly due to a raging fire in northern California.

August 18 2020

Morning walk. Whew! Humid and hot. The rain yesterday afternoon was refreshing. Needed more though.

Wonderful Walks With Clouds and Thorny Sunsets While the Ornamental Grass Glows

August 9 2020

There were many wonderful walks, clouds and sunsets during the two week stay at home vacation and social media break.

August 11 2020

Sunset walk with Lillian.
Sometimes parenting is a bed of roses.
Sometimes parenting is a bed of thorns.
Sometimes I know exactly where I’m going.
Sometimes I don’t know whether I’m coming or going.
Yet, the walks I take, the scenes my eyes frame, the photos I take, being in nature, always brings peace and comfort.

Wonderful early morning walk. I love these lil fuzzy ornamental grasses. They glow in the sunlight.

Soul Food with a Smoky Sunrise Alongside Ornamental Grass

July 21 2020

A lovely walk early this morning. Soul food.

July 23 2020

Sunrise walk this morning. Fire in the Virginia Foothills this morning. It was contained in a new construction area, but seemed to take a while to get fully out. They were still working on it, when I got home from the grocery store at 10:00.

July 24 2020

Early morning walk. Love this lil fuzzy ornamental grass.

Flock of Pelicans With Magical Wind Clouds While Almost Playing Tennis

June 15 2020

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a flock of pelicans flying overhead. There were about 15 of them. It was beautiful! I’ve seen a few in the lakes around here. Just not that many. (Absolutely horrible photos, but I couldn’t resist sharing.)

June 15 2020

Incredibly windy walk with Thomas this afternoon. Still beautiful. Still magical.

June 18 2020

Thomas and I had a beautiful walk at a park we visited many times when he and Lillian were younger. We’d planned on hitting tennis balls around, but the court was occupied. Next time.

June 19 2020

The sky and clouds last night. I mean. Who else saw it? Magnificent.

A beautiful drive to Audrey Harris Park, stop to take in the beauty, and a wonderful drive back home.

Lovely Walk of Inspiring Messages and Magical Moon Clouds

June 3 2020

I purposely did not post these yesterday. First time back here in nearly three months for an inspiring walk. I adore what this neighborhood has done, with lovely messages to brighten nearly every step of ones walk.

This walk inspired a couple of writings. Once they are written I must grow the courage to share them, as they are inspired by current events.

I’ve yet to sit and write them as I’ve been ungrounded the past few days. Yesterday was the cherry on top of being reminded that I needed to ground. My sun dress got caught on one of Thomas’s tree limbs in the garage, ripping it. The patio umbrella took flight with a forceful gust of wind, landing on top of the building behind us, where it still sits, lodged in the gutter. Then, once again, the bottom of my dress caught in something underneath the car as I was getting inside. At that point, I laughed harder than I’ve laughed in a while. Okay. Yes, I get it. Come back down to earth. Yes, yes.

June 4 2020

Great clouds yesterday afternoon, early evening.

June 4 2020

Wonderful walk this morning. Magical clouds again today.

June 6 2020

Such a magical moon last night.

Stormy Clouds of Beautiful Art With Good Feelings of Childhood Memories

May 25 2020

Gorgeous sunset last night. Nature makes beautiful art.

May 27 2020

Wonderful clouds yesterday, with a beautiful sunset. I adore the smell of honeysuckle. It brings such good feelings of childhood, of walks with Thomas, sharing with him about honeysuckle and my childhood. The smell is intoxicating.

May 27 2020

I enjoyed a bit of patio time this morning. Looked up and thought this looked pretty cool.

May 28 2020

Lovely walk today. Haven’t been here in a while. Felt so good.

May 30 2020

Storm clouds yesterday, ending with the clouded sunset. Gorgeous!!

Part 1: Lunch for pick up from Bangkok Cuisine

This is exactly what I wanted, have been wanting for a few months. Great selection of vegan items, too.

I had Vegan Fresh Rolls with peanut sauce for an appetizer; which I split with Thomas, Penang Curry for the main course, followed by an amazing dessert of Sweet Rice with Coconut. 😋😋😋

Thomas had Chicken Penang Curry, Thai Omelet with Tomato & Onions, and Sweet Rice with Mangos fir dessert.

Part 2: A walk in a new-to-Thomas spot. He liked it!!

Thomas and Camilla April 2020 Date Day

Thomas and Camilla April 2020 Date Day

First “stop”: Lunch from Teriyaki Madness. Spicy chicken bowl for Thomas. Spicy tofu bowl for me. Eaten at The TLC Casa. 💚💚💚

Tip for vegans: Ask them to cook your dish in a wok, otherwise it is fried in the same oil as the meat dishes. They were happy to make it work so I didn’t have to order lunch from two different places.

Second stop: Washoe Lake
