A Foggy Kentucky Morning...
Look what I woke up to one morning a few days ago...fog.
When we lived on our farm we were on a ridge of hills.
We had fog in the mornings. We had fog at night.
Driving the curvy back roads to our house after the fog set in could be dangerous.
We would have fog that you could not see through...Not good for driving for sure.
This is the first heavy morning fog at out new house in this woodsy neighborhood.
I thought it was pretty enough to grab my camera and share these images with you.
As the morning went along the fog lessened...
but I was in the mood for a foggy/rainy day.
Normally I only want blue skies and sunshine...but sometimes,
just sometimes a grey cloudy day can put me in the mood
to stay in, to stay still, and to be reflective.
You have seen the view from my back porch before...but not with this heavy fog. The mood is completely different.
While I enjoyed this heavy fog...Mikey, the golden, was not happy with the fog one little bit. Have you ever seen a dog bark at fog? You chuckle! Well, my eleven year old golden retriever felt that there was something very wrong with this fog. He protested by barking and then looking at us...like, do something about the fog! While we told him that the fog would not hurt him...he did not believe us! He saw nothing special or pretty about the fog that his mama liked. (I will admit that if I needed to drive somewhere I would have been bummed about the thick fog....but I was staying home that morning.)
Eventually the fog lifted and Mikey had a glorious day in his yard. If you are a pet parent...you probably know what I mean about having a pet with likes and dislikes. Mikey certainly disliked my foggy Kentucky morning.
Once the sun came out Mikey proceeded in checking out "his" yard.
All is well in Mikey's world!
I have been working on my dropcloth project and will have pictures for you soon. I have created the easiest pillow covers on earth! Be sure to check back next week for the pattern. Here is a sneak peek...
I have one more "free" week...
then it is back to the classroom!
Yikes...where did the summer go?
Thanks for visiting!
