IN FRONT OF OUR CABIN ON JOHNSON LAKE. EARLY MORNING WITH A FOG COMING OFF OF THE LAKE. QUIET AND BEAUTIFUL
VIEW ACROSS JOHNSON LAKE FROM OUR DOCK. SPECTACULAR!!!
Can't believe this is my first October post! Well, then again I can. We had a busy week in Gwinn. I didn't have access to my photos so I put off blogging.
I know you are surprised that my first blog is not filled with Evelyn's pictures. Well, I'm making you wait. Besides, I wanted you to see some of the beauty in Lara, Brian and Evelyn's home town. It was all the more appreciated by me when I had another "eye" episode. I have been having a problem called "Post Vitreous Detachment" since May. Another one of those "aging" things. The condition makes me at higher risk for a retinal detachment. My vision is effected for several days after an occurrence. Anyway, I saw my retinal specialist on Monday and things are resolving. I admit it is a very scary thing, the threat of loss of vision or impairment. I look at these photos and realize how blessed we all are to have the senses God has blessed us with. Beauty surrounds us every minute of every day and look how often we look past it. There we are ,"caught" up in where we are going or what we will be doing next. I am so guilty of forgetting to be PRESENT, forgetting to live in the now.
Anyway, these pictures where taken at Johnson Lake, a quick 5 minute ride from Lara and Brian's house. There were too many of us in town for Evelyn's baptism to stay at their house, so they found this lovely cabin for us. It was a great place to hang out. Sunday night Lara, Brian and Evelyn came over for the evening. Several of us got a Cribbage lesson from Brian. Evelyn entertained us with her cooing and laughing. Lara spread out Evelyn's photo shoots from WalMart and gave them out. We had dinner out and celebrated all of our birthdays since we were all together for a change. It was too short a visit as a family but it was a great reminder of how lucky we are to have one another. Next blog will center on you know who....
Until next time....always, Kathleen
