A lovely sky, all lit up and in the air

- Walking in the park near my office after work on Wednesday for the first time in weeks.*  I've missed it.  And, no surprise, the leaves are mostly gone.  Toward the end of my walk, I got to see this lovely sky as the sun was setting.  You can just see a little reflection of the sunset in the creek to the right.

- I got to my car in the nick of time, just before it got completely dark.  I loved seeing this lit up house on the hill as I stretched.  And there were more beautiful Christmas lights to see as I made my way home.

- Opting for bakery cookies to take to my circle meeting last night - Lemon Shortbread cookies and they were a hit.  A business who makes it their business to supply cakes and treats has moved across the street from the printing company.  It's a beautiful thing to smell the scent of cakes baking in the air every time I come or go from work.

* It's been raining so much that I've been exercising with Leslie Sansone at home, but still love my walks outside.

And here's another beautiful thing - it's Friday!  I hope this weekend is filled with beauty and delight for you, my friends.

I love the Christmas lights. They make the early dark so pretty! Hope you get more days to walk in the park, Lynn. Here it involves boots, mittens and courage. :)

How very, very beautiful. Walking, particularly at dusk or in the early morning makes my heart sing. And these images did the same.
Have a wonderful weekend.

The leaves are gone but you will find beauty. You have a gift of finding the best in everything. Wow, how can you resist those bakery smells every day?

There's nothing quite like a winter sunset, is there?

Riot Kitty said...

Those are lovely spots! Thanks for sharing.

Glad you had some light n ambition for walking n burning off all those cookie calories! I need to burn off dark chocolate truffle calories this week. bakery smells are tough to not eat, For me at work, the buttery croissants smell gets me... wanting some, of course!
Rain is a big step up from snow shoveling going on here yesterday...
I hope your week-end was glorious!

Joe -

I'm partial to white lights - I thought it was so pretty there in the minutes after the sun went down.

Joanne -

Thank you -

Talon -

Elephant's Child -

I'm glad I could make your heart sing - lovely.

Granny Annie -

I like to think I do - I have such a high stress job, that looking for beauty is the only way to stay sane.

Sparkling Red -

Yes - so beautiful.

Riot Kitty -

Thanks for always coming by!

Snaggle -

I have such a sweet tooth and love baked goods so much that I can't imagine working some place like you do - being surrounded and not being able to eat it.
