an autumn’s walk

rained all day, i love the rain,sadly our ‘fixit’ doesn’t








the colors of fall are brilliant right now








every raindrop fall cleaning the forest before it snows

bullrushes are golden and exploding their seeds.

much like a tree gathering its strength  into its’ roots

i must also prepare for winter,resting my spirit in introspection

life with lucy

…our lucy has always been a bit ditzy,classic border collie,she’s forever herding us up. “though she is little,she is fierce”

Lucy’s greatest joy in life (besides bossing us, her dog pack) is playing with her ball. She has literally knocked herself out cold running into a tree while keeping an eye on the ball. But aside from the occasional concussion,the ball mostly keeps Lucy safe. Left to her own devices she loves to roll in anything dead,stinky or gross. The other day when we were out in the forest she did her stop,drop and roll…unfortunately the item rolled in was full of wasps. That poor sweet baby had them tangled in her hair and we were fighting to get them out and they were fighting to sting her,which they did numerous times. Thankfully there was no severe reaction,but a really hurting girl. I love this dog infinitely3 6794
