Breathing Space – November 23/14

So nice to see the sun and breaks of blue…it makes the beauty of the clouds so much more apparent and dramatic to see.

Breathing Space – November 22/14

This fine and very noisy rooster began crowing when I drove onto my friend’s property today. He continued until I started up the steps to the door, when he was apparently sure that I wasn’t going to take his very friendly hen. She greeted me much like a dog would. Her gregarious nature has him very defensive. It was fun to hear and see his bold display.

A different twist on riversides…John Robinson has been my blog-friend for quite awhile now, and his inventive look at ordinary things is often good for a giggle. I love puns!

Breathing Space – November 18/14

Breathing Space 11-18-14aThis handsome fellow turned up at my office window yesterday and returned today. He is apparently enamored with his own reflection. He spent the whole day today singing his heart out and continually flitting about and flying at the window with a burst of song different from the rest. I’m afraid he’ll never catch his intended prize, but he’s managed to capture my affection.

Pardon Me!

Ketchup GirlMy apologies that there was no Breathing Space – November 16/14. I was playing Ketchup Girl this weekend and did a marathon Sunday Sprint on my NaNoWriMo novel, because I was be-Heinz and needed Ketchup on my word count. I created nearly 10,000 new words on the 16th, but not a single new Breathing Space photo.

(I also won best costume for our super-hero themed Writing on the Road event in the Snoqualmie Valley Region of NaNoWriMo. What fun! Great group of writers here! And best of luck and many new words to all of you doing NaNoWriMo around the world… Cheers!)

Breathing Space – November 13/14

So here’s why I’ve been catching all those cool light effects and rainbows by the mountain lately. The plum leaves have left and given me back my front row seat to all of the mountain’s moods as I work at my desk all day. I’ll take this office over a high-rise in the city for sure.

Breathing Space – November 12/14

The winds have been blowing furiously for over 24 hours now. Combined with the freezing temperatures, they remind one why someone called winds ‘biting’. Everyone was scurrying from place to place and taking shelter as quickly as possible despite another clear and sunny day. I didn’t capture a new photo since I was busy hunkering down and covering every spot of exposed skin or turning it away from the sudden gusts. So I’m sharing another from a few days ago when the spectacular windows of light were breaking through the cloud layers. This was earlier in the afternoon before the light turned rosy toward sunset. I love it when the mountain gets stripes, and they change every couple minutes all afternoon.
