...a november day, berries and a camera...


oh my,
what a beautiful
november day.
on my day off
i could have done
the dishes,
swept the floors,
vacuumed,
cleaned off the dining room table,
laundry...
sigh.
but...
instead...
i donned hubby's wader boots
and walked
the property,
with camera in hand,
to find red berries.
i found them...
not too far into
water.
i arranged them in a crock and a vase,
and they found the same fate my children do...
when my camera is in hand...
i posed them around the yard,
here and there
with thoughts of Christmas cards in mind.
maybe tomorrow i will get to my chores...
or not.
just BE.
robin.

Chores...just life's lil' boundaries we have to keep us from enjoying the millennium of beautiful moments in every single day, but also to reward us in all that we do...are they really chores...

See ya soon...
