Saturday at The Big Lake



I am still not at home
In the woods
Instead I am looking out
At the Inlet
What I call
The BIG LAKE
The tide has been in
Most of the days
I've been here
Which is ok
Cause the weather
Has been just a
Bit nasty

The loons are on the big lake
Man those feathers
Must be like a
fleece jacket while camping
add the green tarp overhead
You get my image

Ashton is on the counter
Jasmine is by the door
Meredith is upstairs in the hall
Baby Kitty Riley was by the couch
And, Big Al .. I think he is on the bed

I have taken photos but not set up
to download them here
So, imagine
Quiet
Peace
You got it
Just a slight bit of wind
bouncing the green bough
That hangs just outside
The reach

And, on that visual note
I will drink my delic coffee
And, wish you all
An absolutely PURRfect Day

Tommy says she could sit by that Big Lake all day. "Tranquil" she said. Lovely, I say.

My brother has a couple of houses up on Lake Sabbattus, Maine. I love going up there. Every now and then, the loons float by. Enjoy your lake time, it looks wonderful.

That does look chilly. Glad your all safe and warm inside.

Pleasures of winter!Certainly wish I could see loons floating by. I remember so well to have heard them singing on a Maine pond at the end of October, we were on holiday from here in France and at first, not knowing, we thought wolves were howling outside!

So pretty and cold looking. I'm glad you had a nice time and so did the critters it seems. Safe trip back.

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
