Mystery Creature

Have you ever forgotten that you have pictures on your camera? I have. I just discovered pictures going back to August or September (I don’t remember which) sitting on my DSLR. As soon as I saw the pictures I remembered the joy at finding this subject of mine! A teeny tiny little gecko or some such similar thing. Head over to my photography site¬† to check him out ūüôā

*details and larger photo can be found over at K(ay)’s Days.

Rainy Day Beauty

Today is a rainy day.¬† The sky is grey, the grass is slick, and the harbour is foggy.¬† It’s a day to stay inside with a¬†cup of tea (or hot lemon water as the case may be), a good book and a crackling fire.¬† It’s a day for cats to curl up close by and to purr¬†contentedly¬†– granted, mine are both nowhere near me!¬† It’s the kind of day that makes you long for balmy¬†Summer evenings, or even cool crisp, yet sunny Winter days.¬† None of this middle of the road, neither hot nor cold, miserable no good weather.

It’s also the kind of day where you get to see things like this:

And if you look a little closer, and you’re feeling at least a little brave, something like this:

Let’s be honest, I have no issues with Spiders, so I was able to get in even closer yet, where I got to privilege of capturing this:

Rain drops may have been falling on my head, but they were clinging to this little guy for dear life!  As amazing as spiders are on a normal day, there is something almost magical about spiders, and their nets, when there are drops of water weighing them down.

Lets end with one more look at the amazing patterns and strength you can find in nature, or this case, my own back yard!

I love our Earth and all the creatures that inhabit it!

Five Minute Friday: Rest

Here I go tackling week two of this Five Minute Friday thing, all though it’s beginning to look more like a Sunday thing for me!¬† Friday was busy, so was Saturday.¬† Not gonna lie, today was too, but I finally found some time ūüôā¬† As a reminder, this is a challenge thing hosted by Lisa Jo over at The Gypsy Mama.¬† This week she has challenged us to write for five minutes straight without stopping to back track, think, or edit on Rest.¬† Doesn’t sound very restful to me :S

Here goes nothing…

I sometimes think I don’t leave myself enough time for rest.¬† I’m a go-go-go king of person.¬† The busier I am, the happier I tend to be.¬† Heck, until last weekend I hadn’t had a weekend where I could just rest for, oh, I don’t know, the WHOLE summer!¬† Last weekend I didn’t have to be anywhere, I didn’t have to do anything and I could just rest.¬†

R-E-S-T. 

You know what…I was bored.¬† I was so bored that I got mad that Hurricane¬†Irene really didn’t bother us in Nova Scotia, so bored that all I could do was sit around and whine.¬† I don’t like to rest, I hate to sit still and I abore being bored.¬† What does that make me?¬† I thought rest was supposed to be one of those things people crave,.

Maybe it’s because things I find restful¬†still usually involve me doing something.¬† Maybe going for a walk in the forest, going kayaking, reading a book outside…are you noticing the same trend I am?¬† For me it would seem rest isn’t sitting around being still and quite.¬† For me it’s being outside where it’s peaceful, relaxing and real.¬† When I have the chance to connect with nature, even if for just a few minutes I feel rested.¬†

I guess even I can rest, maybe just not in the traditional way that people tend to think when rest is mentioned to them.

STOP
