I WRITE THIS in the quiet of my bedroom, Italian classic is softly playing on the computer, the older cat is sleeping in the bed, the little kitty is enjoying the morning sun in the dining room, and Joe is in the couch trying to get some decent sleep. All is tranquil, peaceful and I'm ready to face the day with a smile. Today is going to be another gorgeous and sunny autumn day with a temp in the lower 70's.

Joe's older brother Bob and his family came over yesterday for another visit. With each visit, it is "fishing day" for the boys. We headed to Carbunkle Pond which was quiet a ride, especially for Joe, but it was all worth it. We were surrounded with nothing but nature and the air just smelled so fresh out there.

We stayed till dusk and it was such another memorable day for all of us!

What a feast for the eyes! I have but a smattering of leaves in color at present, but I go out and enjoy them every chance I get. Last night the temps dipped low, so signals the start of the BIG show.

I look forward with delight, yet savor the last remnants of my garden all fancy in bloom with many, many roses. The Lord blesses us with gifts in each day. Your post captures that so beautifully.

Thank you for sharing an intimate peek into the fishing and fun of a quiet day of peace and joy in the moment. I am inspired . . . once again. XO!

Wow, picture perfect! I would love to go out there and capture the beauty of nature. We have a similar view here, it's a pond but the trees surrounding it are colorful just the same.
Glad to hear that you are having a relaxing time.

What a beautiful place, Connie. The colorful autumn leaves, and the tranquility of the place is so wonderful. It's truly autumn in your place. In the meantime, we are still having hot days here in Southern California.

Have a great day.
