Raincloud sunset walk

We went for an evening walk in our neighborhood and enjoyed this beautiful sunset. The rain clouds made the sky look ominous, but our stroll was lovely. It felt good to stretch our legs and breathe in the cold air. As we slowly made our way down the street, Mama and I marveled that only…

Fall walk in a lovely Sacramento neighborhood

Paisley and I went for a little walk around the neighborhood this afternoon—not our neighborhood, but the one where we’re staying in Sacramento. The streets are lined with trees dropping leaves and turning beautiful colors for fall. I love walking around neighborhoods and seeing the varied house colors and garden designs.

Today’s #OneGoodThing with Mama was enjoying this magnificent sunset on an evening walk in our neighborhood! For those keeping up with our September Art Challenge, today’s inspiration/prompt is key!

We loved the…

Walking between raindrops

This afternoon there was a break in the rainstorms so Mama, Paisley and I bundled up and went for a short walk in our neighborhood. The downpour has been relentless for days and we were all feeling the need to get outside. The tail end of our walk was hit with a few sprinkles, but…
