A Perfect Moment of Glory

Hi everyone!

I wanted to apologize if you received yesterday's email and it was a bit confusing. I haven't sent any emails from this blog for over a year and for some reason, it had the wrong label on it (from my other blog on marriage.) I did not see this until after it was sent this morning but again, sorry for the confusion.

So, I will be trying to post these whenever I have time, which might end up pretty often. If it is too much, feel free to unsubscribe. I just love sharing the beauty I see out here in our little place in the woods. If the pictures bring you joy, that makes me happy.

Today, my walk did not happen until the end of the day but it definitely was worth it.  I was busy on the computer when my gorgeous husband said "we need to go now if we are going to catch it." So, we quickly got ready and ran out the door to chase the sunset. That day went by so fast!

We live in an area that has close access to several beaches along Lake Winnipeg and Lester Beach is one of my favourites. We had missed going here all summer, so it was a delight to see the long stretch was still so walkable. No matter what time of year you come, you always seem to see a few people walking, usually with a dog or two. Tonight was no exception.

 We got there about 7:00 p.m. and the sun was still in the sky. Within about five minutes, it had fallen quickly, forming a nice round ball right on the horizon line.

The soft orange was intoxicating, lighting up the boats out for some autumn fishing.

I was going crazy with shooting pictures.  I couldn't help myself! I especially love these reflections on the low water and sandbars.

A perfect moment of glory before night slowly ascends.

Even as we drive away, that glory still remains in the sky, determined to give us more and more beauty.

Finally, almost home now, fifteen minutes later, there is still a stubborn remnant of orange lighting up the forest.

  1. Missed seeing posts from you! So glad you're back :-)

    1. Carrie Ann Golden, thanks so much! What's new with you these days? It is so nice to hear from you. :)

  2. Not much. Writing when I can in between chores and other various tasks around the farmstead. I get distracted way too easily! :)

    1. Carrie, it is a lot of work to run a homestead! Kudos to you ... I love reading about homesteads. Maybe you will have more time in the winter. :)
