What inspires YOU?
This last weekend I was at the lake…
The weather has been unusually warm which has made the snow melt too quickly. The lake water is well above normal.
Beaches are now part of the lake…
Perhaps stories around a campfire some day?
The lake was so calm for these photos… beautiful reflections:
I love how the sky reflects on the water…
It gave me time to relax and reflect on my own life.
And create this lake doodle in my art journal…
I’d love to hear what helps YOU relax!

Yesterday, I had a lazy daisy kind of day…
I was at the lake and the weather was very nice!
What a difference a week makes! The photo below on the left was taken last weekend and the photo on the right shows how the beach chairs would NOW be under water!
The sunshine feels wonderful but we don’t need the snow in the mountains to melt too quickly! Flood warnings are now in place…
Oh, the balance of nature… glad I’m not in charge! 😉
Hope you had a lazy daisy day too! What did you do?

I took these photos, last Saturday when I took A Walk In The Park
I hope to paint some of these trees in watercolor but work has been extra busy this week …
So for now, I wrote a haiku to share with these photos:
Things are looking up!
Fall leaves scatter unaware…
Isn’t it wonderful how nature helps us notice the simple pleasures in life and celebrate its beauty?!

It was a blue-sky kind of day at the lake yesterday. The sun was shining, no wildfire smoke was in the air and we enjoyed a nice boat ride on smooth water!
Summer skies of blue,
Filtered streams of sun light,
Fade into fall’s grasp:
Wishing you a blue-sky kind of relaxation wherever you are!

Perhaps you remember this fish doodle that I started recently? If not, you can find it here: Paint Pen Fish Doodle
I have been working on it a little each evening and I am finally done!
I am really please how it turned out! What do you think?
I reminds me of Koi fish swimming in a pond. I love watching fish swim almost as much as I like drawing doodles! 😉
Cheers to a relaxing weekend! 🙂

I was rear ended in my vehicle yesterday… this will be the second time in less than two years by people NOT paying attention. It makes me very upset.
I do not feel well to create art so I’m sharing these photos from the lake last weekend:
I find the colors soothing and the memories of this place, healing…
What colors do you find soothing when you are upset? I hope you share it with me.

Some people see weeds…
I see a field of flowers,
Growing wild and free.
I took this photo yesterday at the lake. We had such a beautiful weekend – sunny and warm.
These daisies are considered weeds in the State of Idaho but I think they look so pretty!
Happy Monday! Cheers! 🙂

I find the shadows to be almost as beautiful of the flowers in the sun light!
Foxglove next to Bluebells:
Flowers purchased to plant:
And flowers planted:
May you enjoy the beauty surrounding you today!

A haiku for you…
Lily white as snow,
Adoring leaves surround you –
Making you the show!
Wishing you a Sunny Sunday to enjoy nature’s beauty around you!

Some days I just need to slow down and reflect on life…
Yesterday seemed like the perfect day at the lake! 😃
A good morning reflection – so thankful to be alive here at the lake!
An evening boat ride on calm waters:
Just breathe! Love these cotton ball clouds and calm waters. Thank you God for this beautiful place to unwind and recharge.
Pink clouds… such an amazing view!
Thank you for this day! Wow! God! Your masterpieces are such a work of art in nature!!
Wishing you a day to relax and enjoy what brings you happiness in life!
