November morning at Lake Irma

Today, Gizzy and I got up and at 'em very early and started our walk down to the lake when the fog was still lingering on the water. It looked like little ghosts hovering on the surface - little wisps of fog being chased by the beams of the rising sun, all floating off in the same direction.

I looked for pretty fall colors in our neighborhood. Looks like autumn has finally come to the Deep South.

"What about me, ma?"
(You are the prince of my heart Gizzy boy!)

We stayed outside for a good long while and didn't come back home till 11 am, so we really took advantage of this crisp autumn morning, feeding ducks (barking at them in Gizzy's case) talking to people, brushing Gizzy's hair and just being thankful for being alive.

If you're interested in entering my November Giveaway, please do so by Monday, 11/29/10.

I burst out laughing when Gizzy's mug showed up in the last picture-- it was not what I was expecting! He is just so darn cute!!

I just love Gizzy. I'll bet he'd be so fun to cuddle and pet sit!

Karin said...

Your Gizzy is so cute! Sounds like a lovely morning - way down south. It was a bitter cold morning - way up north! Loved staying indoors!

Oh I so love your photos and seeing where you walk Doris...what a peaceful and serene place to take in Mother Earth.

And are beautiful too! Now if we can just get your Momma to smile big for the camera my heart would smile big! :)

Loving Blessings Doris and Gizzy!

Hi Doris! I'm so glad to hear you and Gizzy had a nice morning. I love to feed the ducks and the geese too!

Gizzy is so precious! I just want to pick him up and hug him.

Gizzy seems to be enjoying himself. He's a cutie!

I used to love to feed the ducks. Haven't done it in a really long time. I used to do it quite regularly a really long time ago just for something to do.

I would like to be entered in your contest.

Hey that Lake Irma is really nice. I bet Gizzy loves it. And the weather being so nice makes a huge difference.

We just got to watch the baby on Skype - he is so cute.

Gizzy is almost as cute as Will!

Oh Doris..these are beautiful pictures, so restful, and serene..good for contemplating things, or just being still...and of course photogenic...

Faith said...

Beautiful place Doris..I can imagine the quiet, and the nature sounds, the rustling of leaves, the ducks, the water gently lapping up, maybe the wind, and the smell of the fresh serene, and then there is Mr.photogenic...too cute...little mug right up in the camera...don't forget me mamma, I'm pretty too...

Anke said...

Sounds like you had a wonderful morning. The pictures of the lake are really pretty, gotta love those early morning shots.

Silke said...

Isn't it wonderful right now?!? I see red leaves everywhere around here - it feels like there's more fall this year! May it last a looooong time!! Hugs from Savannah! Silke

What awesome pictures. There I am scrolling down looking at the beautiful scenery and then comes up your cute mug, Gizzy. Made me laugh out loud. Aunty Bev was very surprised.

Doris, I don't block everything I do -- only those things that really require them to open up the design like a doily or shawl and sometimes a sweater if I need them to be fudged a bit. Sometimes I will crochet a little looser on one side than the other and I'll need to stretch the one to match (which really has only happened once but I was afraid it wouldn't match if I didn't so I blocked all the pieces to the sizes on the schematic). Anyway, the short answer would have been no. ;-)

What beautiful pictures, but the best one was the last, little Gizzy...he is adorable. Just want to hold him. Your Christmas tree sounds wonderful and so pretty. I like to have the tree on when I'm watching tv, although I end up watching the tree ... I love the white lights. Have a lovely evening. Blessings.
