A view

Lunch time view from my office

The campus used to be full of students at this time of the year since is the middle of the term.

Today they would be wearing costumes and they would visit all the departments to get treats. The faculty would be dressed up too to give treats. I would wear my old witch hat, and a spider stick on my hand.

Halloween at the university is a tradition that we all look forward to. The students, most of them young adults, behave like kids. It’s lots of fun to watch them discussing their treats with their peers and commenting on which department has given the best ones. I love to see their costumes and the smile on their faces.

This year, with all the classes online, it’s difficult to spot a student on campus. I hope they find a way to enjoy themselves this Halloween.

October Squares – Kind

It is Autumn!

on my way

It’s the first day of autumn! A time of chocolatey mornings, and toasty marshmallow evenings, and, best of all, leaping into leaves!

Happy new season to you! Autumn or Spring the Earth is dressed in colours for the pleasure of our eyes and soul. Enjoy the new season!

May Flowers

my cherry tree

We planted this cherry tree in our backyard a few years back. She was 2 feet tall, a say a baby tree. Now she’s maybe 8 feet tall and she is blooming!

I say ‘she’ because to me all the trees are female. They are fertile, they give flowers and fruits, they are home for birds and other animals. They are always ready to give security and love. Oh! if you don’t know yet, I’m a tree hugger too!

Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food, and medicine to the soul.

Wishing a wonderful May to you! Stay safe!

Noticing # 69

I’ve just noticed that my last ‘noticing’ post was in May! Oh my goodness! How the time flies and I let go of things that give me pleasure so easily!

First of all: Happy new season to you!

In my part of the world, we are entering Autumn. It’s so pretty out there! I had a long walk in the woods this weekend, noticing how slowly the changes are happing, how the earth is getting ready for the winter. 

I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.

cold days here, 10C/50F, yes, for sure it’s autumn. so pretty out there, love the coziness that this season brings: sweaters, scarfs, boots…, everything to make me warm enough to be outdoors and take photos. the trees are gorgeous with the colorful leaves.

have a great weekend!
