A new day brings a new beginning. A day to begin a new project, a day to begin planning a new adventure, or sometimes it’s simply a day to keep putting one foot in front of the other.
In the encouraging words of my darling mother… sometimes you just have to live each day to spite those who don’t want you to. My mother, our very own ray of sunshine!🙃

This week the Daily Post for their Weekly Photo Challenge is asking us to be a Tour Guide by sharing images of where we live. Driving the children to school, I found what could be many captures to highlight our small town. Then the sun came out…
Although we’ve had no real snow of late to talk about only rain, just outside our town has had a surprisingly lot of snow in just the last week alone. In fact our highway, the only way in and out of town, was closed for 24 hours due to a high avalanche risk.
When the sun broke through the clouds yesterday morning, this short respite in weather allowed the highway to reopen thus allowing our life to continue as scripted. It was like watching the heavy stage curtain rise to reveal the performance behind!
No matter what has transpired, or unfortunately hasn’t transpired during the day, being able to look out the window to witness Mother’s Nature’s closing act on the day brings about a calmness, a serenity like no other for me.
Evenings like this provide a wonderful reminder that no matter how wonderful or how frustrating today was, it was but just one day. Tomorrow the sun will rise again bringing with it another day of new beginnings.
Serene is The Daily Post Weekly Challenge for this week!
Daylight savings finished for the summer here yesterday. It’s just in the nick of time given that winter will unbelievably be here next month.
Although I’m still wrapping my head around the fact in this day and age the seasons begin during the month not on the first of the month when I grew up. Or maybe that was just a southern hemisphere thing!
Until this challenge I hadn’t appreciated not only does our home in Canada has views of water out the back complete with islands but so does our place in Australia. Albeit one tiny island on the left of the horizon but hey, it’s an island!
Island is the One Word Photo Challenge this week from Jennifer Nichole Wells.
Cotton wool clouds floating past the window created a beautiful backdrop for the silhouette of these trees. Some already with their new leaves, others still waiting.
All too soon there will be so many leaves adorning all these trees, the branches will no longer appear naked against the morning sky.
This photo was taken August 31, still technically summer. However with the dense rain-clouds that rolled in around the edge of the harbour, obscuring the islands behind them, you are instantly reminded winter is not far away.
You wouldn’t think it would be that hard but I have to admit, it took many shots before I was able to get one with the buoy light actually on.
