Off day

The sky was grey as a gun barrel this morning when I sat down to meditate. It rained on and off all night and looked as though it would be another rainy day. It's been so dry here, I wasn't worried about the sun taking a few days off.

We got about three inches of rain, which was enough to give the earth a good drink but the lake levels were still lower than normal.

After a nice meditation, I punched the brew button on the coffee maker as I checked my email. A while later when the maker beeped, I called to Jilda who was still sleeping.

As we sat to sip our first cup, the sun broke through the clouds and a shaft of light made the front glass glint.

It took a while for the cloud cover to burn off, but by this afternoon the sky was pool blue with fluffy white clouds.

During our walk, I snapped a picture of the sun highlighting some oak leaves which made them look as though they were on fire. I love off days
like today.


  1. Good words, 'Off Day!' The reward you know you deserve. It is nice when it can be a YOU DAY. Only a few times in the last few years I have saw a sun rise. Love the color!

  2. The only thing I don't like about retirement is I don't get to enjoy a day off...I know, but it is not the same!

  3. Those leaves look like they're performing a fiery dance.

  4. Oh meditation is so relaxing and I think every person should try this. Another great photo

    I love your photos--you have a true artist's eye!!

  6. The leaves have been bright and cheery here, but the color is fading. Soon they'll all be a thing of the past and will be missed. Glad you captured their beauty!

  7. Nice photo of the oak leaves and the "pool blue" sky in the background.

  8. Beautiful!! As usual. What a lovely spot.

  9. Off Days are strange words to me. I wish I had Off Days. It might be fun.
    It's been raining here and everything is wet and grey. It makes a good day to work in the office in between barn work.
    Have a great weekend.
