A day in my world

Spring weather in Utah is unpredictable to say the least. Early morning fog enveloped Castle Cove.  Last night and again in the afternoon we had rain, then hail.  As you can see, the snow is not entirely gone yet.

This view changes with the seasons, is always breath-taking in its beauty and is one of the reasons why we love living here.

I had time this morning to do a little painting project.  I am taking classes on art journaling called 21 Secrets.   Connie, from Dirty Footprints Studio is our talented hostess.  It's helping me get my creative juices flowing and it's a lot of fun. I love learning new things.

Every morning I let the ducks out of their coop and into their pen.  They don't mind the wet weather.

Amy is wondering why I am taking a picture of our little office.  That's my desk.  We try not to back into each other too often.  We work in a rural mental health facility.  Amy is a case manager for people who are seriously and persistently mentally ill.  I am a Family Resource Facilitator and work with families who have children with mental health and/or behavior problems.  It's a good thing we are compatible!

That's a little piece of My World.  Go see what the world looks like in other places!  It's never boring.

A delightful look at your beautiful world, Loran! Love the fog wrapped mountains and the ducks! Does look like a snug office -- it is a good thing that the two of you get along well! Look forward to seeing some of your art work, sounds like a great class! Hope your week is off to a great start! Enjoy!

I love your ducks.
I've been journaling now for 40 years with the plain old pen and paper kind. I'm kind of intrigued by the art journaling. I'll have to check into it. I have no artistic talents but hey my journal is for me, right.

You and your office mate are doing important much needed work. (I think you already know that though.)

Lovely view into your world. I love the ducks, they are so cute. The foggy mountain scene is my favorite. Very pretty scene. Wonderful photos, have a great week!

A spring scene worthy of painting. You and Amy do a good thing. Wish I could have found some help when in Texas dealing with geriatric senility.

Oh, this is wonderful! Your mountains are breathtaking. I so understand the importance of starting your day with that connection to the wild beauty of the world.

art, home, good work in the world, a beautiful environment... look like the ingredients of a strong and beautiful life.

The art class sounds like fun. I've always wanted to take one, but unfortunately, I don't think I have one iota of artistic talent.
