The future belongs to those who believe in the Beauty of their dreams.

I was tagged to do three quotes, and I think in three days…but I’m behind. I’m sharing this one that I found and liked it. We are free to dream and so dream all the beauty that you can and enjoy, and hoping that all who read this find that their dreams do indeed come true…the beautiful ones.

Thanks for visiting and feel free to share a favorite quote in the comments below or do a blog post with your favorite quote and come back and share a link or share it over at my Pictorial Tuesday site.

Almost Over

The frost came, the last of the hanging on flowers have since wilted and are finishing dying as we type. 🙂 There are a few leaves hanging on yet to the trees. We’ve had to clear the gutter spouts a few times, but mostly, it’s almost over. The loveliness of Fall colors is fading. Today and tomorrow, we will still be blessed with warm temperatures, but the forecast is for rain and possibly a bit snow mixture and colder weather so the last hangers on will blow away with those winds. Then it will be the time of year with the pretty Fall colors gone but yet the winter has not arrived in full force with the beautiful white colorings. But meanwhile, we have a wonderful Thanksgiving to enjoy and bring to mind the many things we are thankful for, and then there’s Christmas shopping, yay!! Pretty colorful lights everywhere you drive.

As we head into the holiday season, have a wonderful Thanksgiving. As my children have aged, have children of their own, family obligations to their significant others at the holidays as well as to hubby and me, the Thanksgiving dinner has dwindled. So there may be haters of the holiday shopping, but as I won’t have family at my dinner table this year, it is a new tradition for me. I’m going pre-Black Friday and Black Friday shopping. Hubby and I will eat something small or perhaps just go out somewhere. In my defense of the pre-Holiday shopping, I’m now 70, and I’ve cooked Thanksgiving dinner for his family, my parents, my children, and even their family when they married since I was 28, so I really am tired of the cooking, and as I worked also in those years, I never did the Black Friday shopping. I was too exhausted. haha

Oh, and I might add that Thanksgiving Day is our 53 year wedding anniversary. It doesn’t always fall on Thanksgiving, but in retrospect it somehow gets meshed in there and no celebration really so not sure why we ever picked the 24th of November.

So, I’m wishing everyone Thanksgiving Blessings, lots of Turkey or whatever you share to eat, restful naps afterward, and lots of family hugs.

I cannot believe it is already heading to Thanksgiving and the end of the month. It just started.

A Friendly Fella

BW Wednesday Bird at Bodega Bay

This little fella or gal (not sure because I don’t know birds that well) didn’t mind just standing there and posing for me when we visited Bodega Bay, California on my first ever trip to California.

Sharing with Black and White Wednesday ~ stop over and give a peek at some other Black and White photography.

Thanks for visiting and Happy Wednesday

Sharing over at Black and White Wednesday….linky party 🙂

There is a path that leads down to this dam that the grandson and I have walked since he was a little fellow. He’s still little, but to him he’s pretty much grown up now and no longer a babykins. He turns 10 this week. haha

Walk for Six Words

790f2-stairs

Grandbabykins loved climbing these stairs. They have since taken these away in the last year. It was a curiosity all along the highway different sets of stairs that passersby could stop and climb to overlook the dam area.
Grandbabykins would climb up them and then roll down the hill. But, now he’s going to be 10 and the stairs are gone, but we still walk the trail and this year added his puppy and my Razzy to the walk along the trail.

Today though, he heads back to school so the walks will be limited.

Enjoy your Wednesday and have a great rest of the week..
