Only on a Sunday...

Only on a Sunday can you leave the laundry behind, decide to start those long overdue curtains some other day, postpone staining the deck, and leave the house without a care as to what you might serve for dinner--all guilt-free. The sun was bright and the air was crisp this afternoon and so we left it all behind and walked the two mile boardwalk over and around Little Pond. The boardwalk is narrow and the water is deep-- some places covering the walkway by an inch or so, but we had no problems. I wasn't even all that anxious. This is definitely a new stage of family life.

The autumn colors are still here.

This was an interesting pumpkin-colored fungus.

Jacob got some burrs in his sheep.

It was a lovely day. An almost perfect kind of day (If only that one hadn't bitten that other one's finger for repeating everything he said). It was a day of rest. It was a Sunday. Thank you, Lord, for setting this day apart.

Beautiful! (And I also noticed how pretty your hair looked.) The setting looks so secluded...I was curious as to who snapped the picture for you! :)

Suzanne Temple said...

Thanks everyone. I wondered if I shouldn't make my life easier and just use this as a Christmas picture.

J.C. My husband was trying to get a picture of me with the boys when another hiker stopped and asked if we would like a whole family picture. She only took this one shot.

Denise said...

Lovely! Definitely Christmas card material and what a perfect shot for your hiker to capture!

Isnt that the way it always goes! LOl Kids dont seem to appreciate the beauty of a given situation. I just laughed when you said that about one biting the other. So typical.

I love the pic.
