Getting Back to Nature and a Sunday Saying . . .

I haven't been taking many outdoor photos lately so the other night I decided to take my camera with me when we took Megan to her gymnastics class.  There is just the beginning of a hint of spring in the air with the days getting longer and the energy starting to shift a bit. 

This is a squirrel's nest in a tree outside of the gym.  I honestly have never seen so many squirrels' nests as I've seen since we moved to Cornwall on Hudson.  I'm going to start taking more photos of them so you can see what I mean.  : )

One of my most favorite things about photography is that I see things in such a different way thru my lens.  I never would've spotted the hint of a rainbow that I saw.  It was a very clear night with no rain in the area and yet there was this beautiful piece of a rainbow.  Can you spot it?

The above photo was not edited at all.  It was such a beautiful sunset that night.  Mother Nature truly is a master painter!!!  I've said it before and I'll say it again . . .


We're having a little Super Bowl gathering later on.  I think most of us are rooting for Denver since he's Eli Manning's brother (the NY Giants' quarterback) and this could very well be the last game of his career before retirement.  When your team isn't in the Super Bowl it's definitely all about the food.  I went out yesterday and stocked up on chips, dips, shrimp, pigs in a blanket and all those other foods synonymous with the big game.  Add to that ribs, homemade mac and cheese, sloppy Joe's, potato salad and whatever else my sister's boyfriend is rustling up (it's so nice having a chef in the family!!) and you have the makings of a party!!!  : )

And now, your Sunday Sayings (I thought they went hand in hand quite well) . . .

Many blessings for a happy Sunday and a peaceful week ahead ~ Wendy

Woohoo!! Denver won! :)

And I LOVE that sky in your photos. Reminds me of the sky back home (WI).
Have a great week!

I feel the same way about taking pictures...probably my favorite past time. I love that quote~
