Solitude

Sometimes, we need to stop this crazy world we live in and just look around. There is beauty everywhere. Click the picture to enlarge and see the beauty of nature.

The morning winter sun bravely peaks out amongst the winter snow clouds.
Welcome Home,
Penny

Hey Penny; I so agree with you, some times in our fast paced world we need to stop and take the time to notice the beauty out there.
Love the photo.

Even this photo has that obligatory splash of red we hear so much about...very nice! Sounds as if you might be a very busy gal...

Your sidebars are very cheerful to be welcomed by on your blog, Penny. Yes, nature is the ultimate beauty.

Yes, there certainly IS beauty all around us if we make sure to keep our eyes open to it. I did enlarge this gorgeous photo, and I do believe I see one lone red fall leaf, hanging onto its colorful moment of glory. :-)

Yes there are colors of red at the top, to the left, and to the right. Very beautiful and rather comforting as in the comforts of home. Very nice. Take care.

That is so beautiful and so peaceful. I hate the cold but oh how I wish that we could have an unexpected snow day. It would be so nice to just look out the window at a snowy sight.

I just love your blog Penny. Every post is just beautiful. We do not get snow here, sometimes I really wish we did. On a few occasions that we get a few flurries they are gone as fast as they came. So I really enjoy looking at the beauty of the fresh fallen snow. Have a good weekend.

Beautiful pictures. Stop and savor the moment. It is so true. Your soup recipe sounds delicious. I love a good soup in the winter. Mimi

I've always wanted a chair like that! And you're right about taking time to enjoy all the beauty - just looking into nature is so soothing!

My husband and I live out in the country, and enjoy every minute of the nature around us.

Oh, it looks so peaceful. The lighting was perfect.

The Broccoli Cheese Soup recipe sounds delicious, it would be wonderful for lunch tomorrow when it is 44 degrees and cloudy.

Have a great weekend.

Good morning, Penny.

Thank you for the reminder. I do take the time to enjoy the quiet of nature. It is something I really need - especially since work is turning into a "rat race".

Snow seems to create paintings wherever you turn. I love the contrast of the chair and the snow. Such a lovely photograph, Penny.
