Taking a Walk

– by Mary Jackson Ellis

Taking a walk is so much fun.
We don’t hurry;
we don’t run.
We watch for birds; we watch
for bees.
We look for all the falling leaves.

Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful and safe November weekend! Hope you take a moment to look up at the colorful trees and feel the crunch of dried leaves on your walks.   Cheers!

Welcome to my blog! My name is Esther and I'm so happy you are here. I'm an avid nature photographer and a daydreaming thinker. My posts revolve around photos of nature's beauty, homeschooling adventures with my 2 kids, sporadic reflections on my child's heart condition, Bible reading reflections, gardening feats, and other mish mash things. Hopefully you'll leave encouraged, pensive, or smiling at the simple things of life. Thank you for stopping by and hope you'll find some interesting posts to read!

    1. That kind of walk sounds lovely! Autumn in Idaho must be much more colorful and cooler than CA. I’m going to check out your blog to see if you’ve posted any Idaho pics.
      Thank you. I’m glad you like the poetry choices. There’s so many beautiful poems out there but some are too long. After the first verse, I’m thinking of something else; too much coffee or too much multitasking.
      Hope you are having a good weekend! Thanks friend for stopping by and saying hello.

      1. It must be a drastic weather change for you! Hope it’s not so hard to adjust to it, but you’ll get to experience all 4 seasons. Now 40 degree weather is going to be a warm day for you.
        Wish I could send you some CA sun to Idaho!

      1. Yes, I like the leaves when they are swirling around my feet as they are caught up in a breeze. We were supposed to have two inches of snow, but it fizzled out and rained instead. All. Day. Long.


      2. I was not crazy about the rain we had all Winter, but the snow and ice and I don’t like driving in it. I took the bus for decades at the end of the street, so never honed my Winter driving skills. We are thirty degrees warmer than yesterday – another oddball weather event thanks to climate change!

      3. I’d be nervous about driving in the snow as well. It’s a whole new experience; Californians freak out on the road when it starts to rain.
        What a dramatic difference in temperature; climate change is a new norm that unfortunately we have to adjust to. ugh.
        I hope the weather is pleasant this weekend for you and stay well!

      4. We have had squalls in Michigan and they are so bad that they whip up out of nowhere and people run into each other. They now have started something called “squall alerts” and I don’t know if that is on cellphones or those electronic banners on highways (thinking this) to alert people instantly to be aware. I’d be a nervous wreck if I had to drive in snow. I took the bus downtown for years – it was very convenient and I just walked down the street. I don’t like driving in the rain, especially a heavy rain. I once left the house to go to the allergist, just two miles away. It was sunny and bright when I pulled out of the driveway and within a mile it started to hail – little pit marks on the hood, trunk and roof of my car!
