wish come true

morning coffee and books I remember two wishes I had as a six year old: longer hair and a sun dress. Both of those came true. The longer hair was just a matter of time. My mother made me a sun dress which I loved and can remember quite vividly. Some current wishes I have: to own a house and have some cats and dogs. Like my first wish of longer hair, it is just a matter of time until these wishes come true. deer with spikes in the woods near the house One wish that came true recently was to have a place with a great view and plenty of light where I could do my art.

end of the season

changing seasons in the forest The weather has been perfect for bicycle riding, and we got one more bike tour in last week. The ride to the state park was comfortable.

Knowing the night would be cold without a campfire, we stayed in the regular campgrounds and enjoyed a bbq and campfire. outdoor market ride Saturdays we sometimes ride to the outdoor market in the next town. The outdoor markets will be ending soon. I'll miss buying those garden vegetables and fruits picked at their perfect ripeness. But I am sure, I'll find many things to like about riding in the Fall weather! joining 52 photos project view my art blog here .

old cars and dog walker

dog walker and old car It's a dog-friendly town and you can find dog dishes filled with water and dog bones inside and outside of stores or along neighborhood streets. old red car On this particular day last Tuesday, there was a group of old cars that settled for the afternoon. Most of the town's buildings were built in the early 1900's, so the cars married well with the buildings. I enjoyed being taken back in history. old cars Most of the cars were from the years 1912 to 1915. There was even one that was steam-powered. Some of the drivers and their passengers were dressed in the time period as well. There were a total of 100 cars from that era in town! joining 52 photos view my art blog here .

summer window reflections

window reflection in seattle I love sitting outside. It doesn't matter if it's sunny or raining. It just feels good to breathe the fresh air. I took this photo outside a pub where my husband and I were enjoying a beer. joining it's a sign at 52 photos view my art blog here .
