Autumn Skies

Well today's skies are certainly not like this - dark grey and raining today.  But several days recently have been glorious fall days with brilliant sunshine.  These were taken over on Highway 6 on one of our trips down to Pebbles for dinner with relatives.

It's always a challenge taking pictures directly into the sun, so this picture required quite a bit of lightening to get the foreground to show up as anything more than black.

Lots of interesting clouds on that day, though it was a challenge to get a good shot that wasn't blocked by nearby trees.

This was my favourite I think, the long narrow millpond on the Rocky Saugeen with the mill in the distance - long ago converted into a beautiful home.  I can remember going past this spot all the way back into my childhood, for this was the route to my grandparents' house.

I include this shot because it was the most beautiful sky shot, even though it's blocked by the wires.  Though without those wires the whole idea of digital photography and blog writing would be impossible!

*****

Very busy time here.  It seems we're always busy!  We're often out someplace every day of the week, and it reaches the point where a quiet day at home is a very nice luxury.  Several outings recently were fun but not picture-worthy, so you won't hear much about them here - the Rotary trivia night (where we were among a lot of losing teams), the local Garden Club meeting, a group we'd like to connect to (I was one of 3 men among about 45 women, and the speaker was great), another drive down through the valley to enjoy the fall colour (you might see a few of those photos).

And at home I'm trying to move forward to get a shower chair and a manual wheelchair as well as getting this electric one adjusted better.  All three of those require coordinating visits of a salesman or tech from two different companies with the Occupational Therapist, who is only available one day a week.  And twice this weekend they were unable to find a homecare worker for us.

So life goes on, continually improving, but always a busy challenge.

  1. I love skies like that. Lets hope we get a few more before winter sets in.
    I do miss many aspects of my old job, but liaising with wheelchair technicians is not one of them!

  2. You rise to every challenge together, and unless you have been in your shoes or chair,have no real understanding of showers, bed hoists or electric wheelchairs either. Love those skies, and power lines, I had not thought of them as the vital necessity to our blogs and communications.Instant, and travel so far as to be infinite( is that the right words). Cold morning here, torrential rain all night, the drains tell the sound of rushing water far below.

  6. Yes we certainly did have a few nice sunny days last week. There is a lot of healing power in that Sun both mentally and physically. That is a very busy schedule you have and even with two good legs I would be hard pressed to keep up with you. Hope you can get some of those wheelchair challenges sorted out.

  7. It's good to be busy even though sometimes it's really necessary to take a breather.
