I think that’s what it is.
Or maybe it is the planetary alignment ?
Whatever the cause, I felt very sucky when I woke up today.
That just happens some days.
The day was seemingly following my mood as a few things happened as the day got underway that were kind of sucky too.
In an effort to change the pattern of suckiness, I went for a walk with Chica.
It is gorgeous out today ! Sunny, very windy, but warm, and the colors of Fall are absolutely spectacular !
Here are a few views from my walk...
Our neighbors, Kim and Dave (how funny is that ?!), who live two doors down have lovely porch décor.
Look up ! That orange against the blue sky is so pretty.
I know that Chica wishes I would listen to this rock but being on leash is a must in the city !
Not sure what these berries on this prickly bush are called, but their persimmon red/orange color really caught my eye.
This shot is of a pile of broken glass, really thick stuff. I don’t know what it belonged to but I thought it was cool looking.
Some more orange. A scared looking skeleton, swinging in the wind.
Here is a shot of a Rock Fairy classic - putting a rock atop the fire hydrant.
I snapped a couple of pics of the “okay” rock.
I like this one too – with two pairs of feet…
Speaking of feet…
Fall would not be complete without walking through the leaves, listening to the swooshing, crunchiness. I even love the smell of the decay…
I picked up a Gingko leaf to bring home. Their shape and the fact that they are a symbol of strength, hope and peace made me pause and want to bring some of that home with me this morning.
For this pic, I paired it with the last rock in my pocket.
A message for the rest of my day, perhaps ?
“Go with strength, hope and peace.”
So while I still feel kind of sucky,
and while there may be things about this day that will continue to suck,
tonight when I go to bed and look back on the day,
there will be sweet moments of strength, peace and hope to focus on,
in spite of the suckiness.
I hope you have an un-sucky Monday, Beautiful Ones.
Go with strength, hope, peace and Big Love!
