Sky Paintings

During my walk the other morning,
I was quite captivated with the

I immediately thought
the only way to describe what I was seeing
was to say "paintings in the sky."

I hope I never tire of the beauty
provided by nature.

On a side note...
On Monday, I'm back to work.
Not full time, rather 27-33 hours per week.
It's a good beginning.
I'm back to what I know (?).
I will be a one on one Educational Paraprofessional
for a student in secondary school.

I thank you all for your encouragement 

If I'm not commenting as much,
it just means I'm trying to 
get my groove back
in being a single, working parent.
But I can promise,
I WILL continue stalking you all!
It just may take me awhile.

When the sky is full of wispy clouds it makes me feel so dreamy, like life is a dream, which it is sometimes! It's hard going back to work, giving up free time, and time outdoors... But, I hope you enjoy your new experience.

That's great news. So glad you are back at work. It makes the skies all that much more amazing:) Enjoy the new challenges and routines...and don't forget to start your day with something fun. Before I get to school, I get my coffee and listen to Public Radio as I drive around the mountain reminding me that I can get and do some photography soon. So treat yourself each day before you begin that day:)

I'm going to have to look up paraprofessional, never heard that one before, but good you're back up & running!
Your sky paintings are beautiful... I'm thinking they're jet contrails, maybe? =)
