Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful for beauty is God's handwriting
- a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Today I'm celebrating another FANTASTIC Friday!
so many beautiful days this summer. It's been a joy just to be alive. When I retired in April I was one worn out lady. I
didn't know if I'd ever manage to get all the rest that I needed.
Well I think that finally I am rested and ready to get busy doing a few things. I will still be at my camper as much as possible until the end of October
but there is much I can do while I'm here.
I've brought my paint and brushes along with me so hopefully I'll be
making some things for gifts and just for fun. With my large family that just keeps growing, someone is always having a birthday or anniversary and
I do love to give gifts. I love to paint so I'm not only doing something for someone else, I'm also doing it for me too.
I did say I'd be busy, but it won't be work that I'm doing. With all the beauty of the country side I need to pay attention to all that is around me too. For the next few days we are going to have a break from the high temps we've been experiencing and that alone makes one feel like doing more.
If I manage to actually complete something, I'll take some
pictures to show you. Meanwhile I'll be sharing some photos of the lovely sunsets here. I enjoy sunrises too but the sun comes up behind a hill that is c
overed with trees so getting pictures of that isn't as easy to do. Mayb
e that is something else I should be working on.
A thing of beauty is a joy forever; its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness.
I do hope your Friday is a Fantastic one and that you'll take a moment to look at the beauty all around you.
