Homesick

image

There are some days and times I get really homesick for the natural beauty of Washington state. That’s not to say that Alabama doesn’t have its pockets of beauty but there’s just something about the lush greens, the old forests browns,  the beauty and majesty of the mountains……I can’t wait for my summer visit. It’ll be great to be back home again.

Beauty in the cold

This is the scene from inside my car this morning. Perfect ice crystals formed on all of my windows. I guess at 19 degrees the moisture in the air has to do something so it decided to collect on my windows (surprisingly enough my doors weren’t frozen).
I’ll tolerate mild cold but I’m not a big fan of super cold so these last few days have been nowhere near fun for me. My hat is off to people who live in the Midwest and Northeast. I don’t know how you do it in the winters. Anyway I hope you enjoy the nature I’ve captured on my car.

Simple beauty

I’ve spent the last week wrapped up in my back pain and haven’t taken much time to enjoy the simple beauty that is all around me. It just goes to show with one change of events a persons whole outlook and perspective can also change. So today as I try to muddle through a mountain of homework that refuses to do itself I’m also taking a minute to reflect on a moment if simple beauty that brought a smile to my heart. Hope yall are having a better time than me.
