Bright Sunshiney Day

When we're at the cabin, we see the sun rise over the lake every morning. Every time I hear that song "I can see clearly now" by Johnny Nash, it makes me think of log cabin mornings, sitting on the deck, watching the birds and drinking some hot tea.

We are headed up this weekend and the fall colors should be at their peak. Can't wait to get some photos! Here are some from a few weeks ago.


Another morning at the cabin.....Scout is probably walking Greg right now. Ha!





Here's a little toad sunning himself. I had an explosion of toad babies this summer in our yard - at one point I had counted over 30 of them!





My Dahlias are still blooming and have become one of my new favorite flowers.





And now I leave you with one of my favorite songs....

The windows in your cabin are so beautiful. Love all the sun coming in. You must be so excited about going to the cabin this weekend. I can't wait to see your pics. Enjoy!

Great post and wonderful photos, Shelley... That song is also perfect for us today --since we went to the Smokies today on a bright, clear, sunshiny day..... It was awesome.

Hugs,
Betsy

After seeing those windows in your cabin, I can understand why you go up there as often as you can. I hope you have a great weekend with lots of autumn color.

The flowers are so pretty, the froggie is so cute. (but the explosion of them leaves a bad image in my mind)

Too bad the rain is not gone! LOL
Still raining here!
Love the little toad!
You should put all your cabin pictures in a book! Or make a scrap book, do you do that kind of thing?

Nice ... sun is so enjoyable (o: The song too.
Wonder what the almanac would say about all those toads?

Your cabin is gorgeous and I loved the little toad/frog photo..it was adorable.

Just a little something from Judy said...

That song fits you and your cabin stays perfectly. I think if I got to spend time there I would be singing it all the time. It is all so beautiful! The windows and dahlias are exceptional.
