Sunday mornings at my house have a very different pace from the rest of the week. Here is a peek into my morning. (I tried to put some of these pictures side-by-side, but was having too many formatting issues!)

On my way to walk with my friend Colette, of Used Books in Class fame. We walk together every weekend as long as it’s not below 20 degrees, raining, or snowing.

This knot hole intrigued me. I get all sorts of ideas when I walk.

Spring is here!
Soon this pond will be full of tadpoles.

Breakfast’s was delicious! Now it’s time to write my slice, work on my WIP, and read. Happy Sunday, everyone!

  1. I love the photo gallery, Catherine. I think you should write some poems for spring (I will have a gallery for the season but have to finish Winter Whisperings). Have fun writing about these prompts when you have a chance. I think I will use the one on the fairground for perspective with credit to you for a picture prompt for my next presentation.

  2. It looks like you had a wonderful morning today. I love that you walk with your friend. My sister and I used to walk every day. We stopped when my knees started going bad. I miss those walks. Now we ride our bikes and I always say that I should bring my camera but I never do. There are so many beautiful pictures out there. I think I will just do it this spring. After I get my cast off and my foot has healed and I can ride again, I am busting my camera out! 🙂 Thank you for the motivation!

  3. Love the photo essay! It’s always fun to get a glimpse into another’s world and routine. That tree with the hole, looks like a mouth that’s screaming. Slowly but surely, signs of spring pop out.

  4. Enjoyed your photo essay. I loved your table cloth with its yellow pattern and the sunlight falling across its corner, so appropriate with your other signs of spring.

  5. i love your photo story that took me to your place. I had a busy Sunday that didn’t leave much time for meandering, but I did take photos for tomorrow’s post. I love that every year when I do the SOLC spring is coming. Such a great time to be thoughtful and alive.

  6. This was just beautiful. I think if I had this kind of scenery nearby, I’d walk everyday, too. I’m jealous. Thanks for sharing both the words and images.
