337: A little of this, a little of that


It’s another beautiful day here in the Bogs.  It’s not as sunny as predicted (I believe the weatherperson’s forecast was “abundant sunshine”), but I don’t mind the clouds.  They add character and depth to the sky.

Not today's clouds

I can’t think of anything to write about today.  I am posting photos from the past few days that didn’t make it to the blog.  I think I just managed, in two sentences, to make this post sound dreadfully boring.

Monday's clouds

Sometimes photos I like, or want to show you, don’t make it to the blog.  There are a number of reasons why photos I like get excluded.  The number one reason is because they don’t fit what I’m writing about.  The number two reason is because the post is already fat with photos.  I know that can be difficult, especially if you have a slow internet connection.

Visiting the old tree in the woods

Goldenrod in the meadow

Anyhow.  It’s going to be a busy weekend, filled with family fun.  M and I will have a full house again with both our sons, their wives, and the grandchildren all here.  (This is where I should put a portrait of me with a big smile on my face.)

After the storms: Sunlight in the forest

After getting this far along in the post, I decided to run outside and grab a shot of the pond.  It seems like I’ve provided a view of it almost every day during this commitment (most exceptions being when I was traveling and thus, not able to get a photo of the pond).

Today's view of the pond

Of course I ended up taking more than one photo.  I took quite a few, in fact.  But I’m going to save a couple for another day.  It’s time to wrap up this post about nothing in particular.

Walking back to the house

To those of you out east (in the U.S.) awaiting Irene, keep safe.

Signs of Autumn: Goldenrod and asters

    Lovely pictures, if this is what happens when you can’t think of anything to write, then let’s hope it happens more often. 🙂

  6. Sounds like you’re going to have a wonderful weekend! Enjoy your family, Robin!

    love love love that first pic!! Such great symmetry!!

  8. Marianne says:

    Oh Robin, I especially love the sunlight in the forest and the old tree.

    Btw, I’m back out of the hospital after a second trip. They didn’t get it right the first time and I had to go back. My rheumatologist is back from holidays next week so hopefully she’ll have some positive recommendations for me.

    Have a fantastic time with family! Through all this recent health stuff, I’ve decided that my relationships are the only and most important thing there is.

    • Robin says:

      Thank you, Marianne. 🙂

      I am so sorry to hear you wound up back in the hospital again. I do hope they got it right this time around. Hugs to you.

    oh, the old tree in the woods photo just leapt off the screen at me
    synchronicity is offering up many tree images, metaphors, movies, songs lately
    so i am paying attention – love the way the sun sparkles through the branches brightly in one spot

    Autumn’s coming Early apparently Robin, or so the experts say. the cooler nights are making the trees loose their leaves before the usual time. Seems so wrong somehow, But I suppose you’ve got to consider what’s actually right? Over the millennias changes have occurred all the time, so I suppose nothing is actually writ in stone….(I have no idea where this thought came from..or where I am going!!) … I shall take a stroll along your path, and view the magnificence of your pond before moving on in my virtual walk… have a wonderful time with your family, and bye for now. xPenx

    • Robin says:

      So true, Pen. I like the way your thoughts ramble and wander. You always give me something to think about or a different way of looking at things. Thank you. 🙂

  11. I’m glad to see some happy-looking goldenrod; no sign of any yet here in Austin because of the continuing drought.

    Like you, I’ve been fascinated by the centers of sunflowers:


  12. Kathy says:

    “Fat with photos”! I love that line, Robin. Looks like you fit those leftover photos in very nicely. I always have a bunch of them sulking in the folder, too. Wondering why they weren’t good enough. But usually they simply didn’t fit into the theme. Like your first photo a LOT! Hoping that Irene keeps downgrading for the people out east, too. Have fun with your crew!

  13. A post about ‘nothing’ that holds so much…
    Enjoy the family this weekend!

  14. ElizOF says:

    The sky and the woods were spectacular and the fungus was quite interesting… I don’t touch them but they look good. TY! 🙂

  15. Those clouds are amazing!

  16. carlaat says:

    I’m with everyone else – yet another lovely post, especially the clouds and the old tree, with the jewel of sunlight peeking through. Beautiful!
