Sometimes, you look up from your desk and see such beauty outside your window that you have to stop what you are doing and just admire it. Admire and be in awe of how beautiful the world around you really is and how small you really are in comparison.

This was today’s sunset. It was breathtaking. I hope you enjoy as much as I did.

Here’s a sunset picture Tyler took and posted on his blog a couple weeks ago.


Here’s a sunset picture I took today in Rutland. Same sun, totally different look.

It was a beautiful evening sky at sunset.


It was a beautiful sunset tonight. The sky was briefly lit up with a gorgeous shade of pink. This pictures doesn’t do it justice. A good way to end the week.

Happy Weekend!

Here are some pictures from the sunset a little while ago. I was wandering by a window and had to stop, grab the camera and take a few pictures. It signals the end of a very, very long week here at the T’s House.

Every once in a while, you just have to stop what you are doing and stare in amazement at the beauty that is around you. This was one of those afternoons. Nice that the camera was with me.

As we were driving back from our little jaunt in the woods (since on the way back I was fairly confident that the ATV was not going to tip over and crush me to death) this was the view. A different perspective from a different place other than in our driveway.

I was playing around in the yard with the camera while we were getting (okay, while Tom was getting) the brush gathered for the fire ring. The sunset was amazing and the moon that popped out shortly afterward was quite cool as well.


Last evening on my way driving the boys to scouts I noticed it. The green on the trees is a little less green. You really wouldn’t notice it in the daylight but in the light of the setting sun, you can see it – the trees are starting to take on a yellowish glow. I noticed that the cranberry bush in our yard is also losing its color, not quite changing yet, but a little less vibrant green. The mountains overall are starting to take on a touch of color, not noticeable really unless you watch closely, but it’s coming. Autumn is on its way.

Another sign that it’s coming is the deer have started to make their way into the yard, which can only mean one thing, the apples are starting to taste good. All summer they haven’t made their way down into our field, but now, early mornings or late evenings, you can see them, making their way down, tentatively, tasting here and there.

The evenings are getting chilly and the mornings are brisk – all the hallmarks of autumn. The pumpkins are beginning to turn. I love autumn, it’s one of my favorite times of the year.

When the phone rings in the middle of the night and you know that your children are away (and one of them is asthmatic and has food allergies) you practically have a heart attack before you wake up enough to realize what is going on. That’s what happened last night in Burlington. Sound asleep in our hotel room and somewhere in the middle of the night (around 2:30) Tom’s cell phone rang (it of course didn’t help that the ringer is set to “deafening” levels anyway). As it turned out the horrible weather back home here, killed the power and Tom has the house automated to call us when the power is out (a leftover from the days when we didn’t live here and would have to send a neighbor over to check on things if the power were out for any length of time). BTW, the house was kind enough to wake us again two hours later when the power was restored, so that we wouldn’t lose sleep wondering, no doubt.

The trip home took a detour and we wound up over by Chimney Point where we had lunch at a quaint little diner on the corner of the road. There, Timmy if he was with us, would have wanted to move in. Sandwiches and burgers are served with a side of fries bigger than most places ‘large’ order of fries. We each ate about half of our own sides and there was still enough left over to qualify as a large order of fries at most places.

After we left there, we came upon a trio of people in a car that needed a jump. They were on a corner literally in the middle of nowhere. So, in the spirit of “Do a Good Turn Daily” (the boys’ scout motto), Tom pulled out the jumper cables and shortly they were happy, running and on their way.

We finally made it back and are glad to be home. Here are some pictures taken from the hotel room. Gorgeous room with a view. Thanks Tom, it was a good mini vacation.





Here’s some pictures that we took in the evening from the walkway by the Lake.
