New point of view

I went back to work today for the first time in over two weeks. I was afraid I'd have to call for directions down there, but I made it fine.

I'd worried about my plant in the window, but it was fine. I pampered and watered it as soon as I got there this morning and it perked up. I think it missed me.

I had to make up some time I'd missed just before leaving for Christmas so I was on campus late getting back home this evening.

Arriving home, I changed into my sweatpants and hit the walking path. The sun had already dipped below the horizon, but there was still enough light to get my steps in. When I got back to the yard, I looked into the trees. The sky looked as if there was a fire in the distance. I snapped a picture through the trees.

I'm looking forward to getting away for a few days. That usually gives me a different perspective on life...a new point of view. I need that from time to time.


  1. I went back to work also and it is an adjustment but soon we all slip back in and remember with fondness the wonder of this past Christmas. I'm glad you wear the same uniform as I do when I get home:)

  2. Love that photo - and yes a new perspective is often very, very beneficial. And good fun as well.

    Gorgeous photo!!

  4. When I first looked at the photo I thought it was a fire!


  5. I also thought it was a fire in your area. Thank goodness it was a beautiful sun set instead. Good for you to keep up with the walking.

  6. It is wonderful that nature gives a new view every day. Right now I'm looking at a cloudy sky with spots of blue showing through giving a promise of a little sunshine today.Your sunset picture is just wonderful. Glad you were able to capture it.

  7. Glad you are able to get back to work. I am sure you cheated and used the GPS to get back to the office. LOL WOW like some above, at first glance I thought of FIRE! neat shot.
    Yep a clean gitaway is always a good idea.

  8. We all need a new perspective from time to time.

  9. Beautiful Sunset to end your new day.

  10. When I first saw the picture I did think you had captures one of the many fires plaguing your area for so long. It is a little scary.
