I got up early on Saturday (before the sunrise or moon set) and went looking for some of that glowing yellow. A nice way to start a fall day – the rest of which was spent cleaning house and cooking for the boys!
Anyway, I thought you might enjoy photos from that adventure while reading all the blessings I’ve observed over the last couple of weeks. By the way, it is constantly clear to me that these blessings I observe are really only a small fraction of the blessings God bestows on me each and every day. Oh how easy it is for me to take for granted! But these are a start.

And just for the heck of it, here is a photo of my greeting from Tank when I got back from shooting these photos – yes, he carries around a giant board bringing it to me to impress me with how much he loves me since he’s willing to let me see his stick. That’s a lot of stick love!
The one with the dark paw is Arrison (I suspect a boy, but am not sure) and the other is Arnika, (I suspect a girl, but again, not sure). Arnika has much lighter paws than Arrison, but both are cute, and otherwise they are close to identical.
