Sunrise, Ducks, Clouds RAINBOW

RAINBOW this afternoon. Happy Halloween!

Sunrise, sort of. . . .
 2 Ducks on this side of the street and. . . .

 The one at the cistern is getting a drink of water.
The top holds water from the sprinklers.
 The pink clouds from the sunrise are mirrored in the water.

Sunrise, Moon and Ducks Breakfast Club

First thing this morning, the Moon at 18 percent, the stars are there.
 Two (or 3) ducks on one side of the canal I fed.
 Crossed the street and fed the other 3. . .2 Duck Breakfast Clubs today.
The street has become so busy, it is dangerous for them to cross.
 Moon after sunrise and clouds.
God has a perfect plan for us. He never does it all at once, just step by step because he wants to teach us to walk by faith not by sight.

 Geese are flying south and here is a plane trail cloud.

Give, but don’t allow yourself to be used. Love, but don’t allow your heart to be abused. Trust, but don’t be naive. Listen, but don’t lose your own voice.

Today my girlfriend and I celebrated our birthdays with breakfast at Panera's.  I had the egg, bacon sandwich on tomato/basil bread. . . She had egg white on Italian.  My birthday was Thurs. and hers was Friday.  We try to celebrate like this together each year.  This keeps us in touch with each other. I've known her for about 20 years.   And then I shopped at my favorite food store Fresh Market.

Sunrise, Moon, Duck Breakfast Club

 Moon is 64 percent, there is a halo this morning around the moon.
A bit later the sun is trying to come up!!
 The line up for breakfast.
Two more ducks come around the corner. There are 8.
The picture would be too dark, so I lightened it.
Duck Breakfast Club (lightened this pic too).
 Finally, arriving home, I see the sunrise.
The moon is covered over with clouds, but still high in the sky.

Squirrels Playing in MY Backyard

 What a Birthday present. . . .Squirrels playing in MY backyard.

 She's got something in her mouth.
 She's not that distracted. . . Whatcha doin'? Where are you going?
What does he see? Whoops. . . .
He's coming Right Back Down!!
She's still up there on the left branch high up.
This gal is leaving and he's chasing after. . .Don't want to let this one get away.
This is how far away I was. . . standing at my backdoor.
Push your own buttons: Play the moments; Pause the memories; Stop the negativity; Rewind the happiness; Keep your mind open.

No Sunrise . . . Ducks and . . .Boo Kitty

We had a "cool" front come in and this is the morning sunrise!!!
8 this morning at the Duck Breakfast Club.

 Since I had so few pictures this morning because of the extreme darkness, I decided to show you what I am working on. This is an ACEO "Boo Kitty" that I made for those who love to see pets in all sorts of different styles. Halloween is coming up and this is my interpretation of the cute little cat.
I used Prismacolor pens, glitter and glitter glue mixed with acrylics, and gel. She was fun to make. She will be up on my art blog by Friday participating in  Paint Party Friday.  A Wonderful group of artists that show their work and instructions on 'how to' for most of them. There is quite a variety of art from Journaling, to painting, to mixed media.

Be happy with what you have while working for what you want. ~ Helen Keller
