A Home with a View – Sunday Stills

“If I ever go looking for my heart’s desire again, I won’t look any further than my own backyard; because if it isn’t there, I never really lost it to begin with.” ~Dorothy, Wizard of Oz

Our Sunday Stills prompt this week is Vacation or Staycation? We had plans to spend a few days at Lake Michigan this summer but had to cancel due to the cursed Omicron. I’m with Terri on this one, who needs a vacation when you have this kind of view. Here a few shots of the view from our home, yes we live on the lake (aka big pond).

Spring night, the Bradford Pear in bloom, path lights shining on the water.

Cloud Dancer as sunset highlights the clouds. Does anyone else see the Cloud Dancer?

One of many gorgeous sunsets.

The moon peeks through the trees at her reflection in the still waters of the lake.

Thanks for joining me today for a look at my home. Til next time ~Peace ~JP

A man may work from sun to sun, but a woman’s work is never done,

Retirement is when you stop living at work and start working at living ~~ from a coffee mug I received as a retirement present

Silent Sunday – Chose to Chance the Rapids

rafting on the Animas River in Colorado

“Too many times we stand aside
And let the waters slip away
‘Til what we put off ’til tomorrow
Has now become today
So don’t you sit upon the shoreline
And say you’re satisfied
Choose to chance the rapids
And dare to dance the tide…yes”

Inspired by Marsha’s Writer’s Quote Wednesday #29 – Rivers
