|Just Look Outside Your Window|
With the rich yellows, greens,oranges, browns, reds and blues of autumn gracing us, I am eager to open my curtains in the morning to drink up all of the divine hues.
As I was making homemade waffles from a family recipe handed down to me by my mother-in-law, I glanced out my kitchen window and yelled joyfully, "Look, a blue jay. Derek and Bryan, there is a blue jay on the deck!!!" Now, many of you may say big deal, but I have never seen a blue jay on our acreage. After pleading with my son to watch the cooking waffles, I grabbed my camera, for once I had the right lens, and I snuck out my back door...and...it flew to the nearest Cottonwood. To my delight, there was another blue jay. Of course, once they detected my presence, they flew off into the great big blue grey sky. Ugh, right lens, wrong timing.
1. Always have large windows in your kitchen and dining room.
2. Open the curtains each day.
3. Clean your windows, even if you say,"I don't do windows!"
4. Get outside.
5. Don't let time pass you by!
6. Positively, Just Look Out Your Window!
