You didn’t know it was International Kitten Day? Well when you have a cute pile of kittens like this, every day is International Kitten Day. And when the kittens are just next to your bedroom in a bed and breakfast, your holiday just doesn’t get any better!
I’m back from my vacation time and have lots of photos of our trip to share as well as stories waiting to be told. I also have a new project I’m planning to share with you all very soon. What does this have to do with kittens? Not a thing, but who needs an excuse to share photo of cute kittens? Not me.
Sometimes the view of a landscape can reflect perfectly your own mood. In this case the mood is one of slight melancholy, maybe even your thinking is a little unclear as you try to work out things in your life. As you contemplate, gradually you see things come clearer and the fog begins to lift. At last! A decision is made and you can move forward to a goal.
It's true that although the fall is one of my favourite seasons (and definitely the best time to visit Eastern Canada) it always brings a mixture of moods. The sadness in the mix is related to the end of summer, which this year seemed was shorter than normal and not nearly as hot as it usually is. I feel that I didn't do half of what I planned or hoped to do. 'Ah well, there's always next summer' but that thought comes with a little sigh of resignation.
The fall also brings a feeling of restlessness as I am nagged by a persistent feeling that I should be leaving to go somewhere. There is also a slight mood of foreboding about what the winter might have in store for us and this hangs heavy as the stormy dark sky behind these bright leaves.
But in spite of all of that, the brilliant autumn light, magnified and intensified by the golden, orange and red colours leaves a feeling of joy that no other season seems to carry.
