MOST RECENT

After making our way down the hill and across the first pasture, the creek is running higher than our boot tops... so my sherpa went back and got the 4WD. He enjoyed being able to use his favorite way to get across... ๐Ÿ˜…

Sunrise... sunset ... Peaceful river walk in the morning was the prelude to an emotional day. ๐ŸŒ„ It's my daughter's birthday and although she has her own family far away and we can't be together, I treasure the memories of becoming a mother and the adventure of life with her. So very thankful for the special woman she is โ™ก
๐ŸŒ… Sadly, today too, we said a final goodbye to my wonderful father in law. He lived a life of integrity, faith, strength, and love. He was a 90 years young dynamo and will be so greatly missed. ๐Ÿ˜” We are thankful for our time together and look forward to a glorious reunion one day. ๐Ÿ™
*****
Hoping you have some moments to pause and breathe along your way this week, too. ๐Ÿž

๐Ÿ”Mountain Monday... finally! It's been a busy, busy Fall but so thankful we were able to get away for a short hike today. Golden Larches and fresh snowfall on the trail... Took many mountain photos that will have to do me for awhile ... off to the lovely - but flat - land of lakes (MN) tomorrow! ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿƒ

๐Ÿ”ฅ This morning's ash covered car hood... Last night's moon. (No filter). We are miles away in the city, but without rain the ash is far reaching. Prayers for all the wildfire fighters and that our beautiful forests can soon begin their recovery. ๐Ÿ˜ข๐ŸฆŒ๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿป๐Ÿฆ…๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿ˜”

(I apologize for my lapse in posts, as a not-quite-retired teacher, these are the most all consuming prep weeks of the year... I hope you are all well and know how blessed I am by your IG friendship and photos!!) ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿค— .

Had fun trying some simple astrophotography on our Mount Adams trip... the amount of stars was overwhelming! My camera did pretty well and we liked how this attempt turned out. I would love to learn how to do real editing someday ๐Ÿค” Oops, I just realized I'm posting two night photos in a row! ๐Ÿ˜„

๐ŸžLove finding beautiful natural areas like this small lake to share with my young grandkiddos, especially looking for birds, butterflies, squirrels and bunnies together ! ๐Ÿฟ
It's been a precious week in Minnesota after a whirlwind trip from Seattle, to Los Angeles, to Minneapolis then Rochester. So very excited to find out we will be welcoming another grandson into our family this fall - and totally blessed in the privilege of seeing his tiny face in person on the ultrasound ... we are more than overwhelmed with thankfulness for his little life! ๐Ÿ’ซ

๐Ÿ”A challenging and exhilarating Sunday spent in awe and thankfulness on the mountaintops. My eyes and heart did not want it to end, although my old bones were quite done! I found one last glimpse of the beautiful day reflected in a parking lot puddle. Goodnight snowy mountains.. โ›…โ„
