Winning the Battle

I attended yet another author event last night, which was extremely fun and fascinating, but it meant a really late night for me.  As late nights and I don’t get along very well, my eyes are refusing to stay open tonight.  However, I wanted to share a couple of photos with you before I hit the sack, so I am just throwing them out there for you to hopefully enjoy even though they have not been edited at all.

After another bout of nasty early snowstorms over the weekend it was a relief yesterday morning on the way to work to see the sun battling the clouds and actually winning.  Go sun go!!!

    What a lovely drive to work – a sun like that will do it (every time).

    (Not that I can complain – I used to walk through the Botanic Gardens to/from work a few years ago).

    • Having grown up in a busy city, I do really enjoy my drive to work now because the scenery is beautiful and there is no traffic. I can often be found pulled over at the side of the highway snapping pictures :).

    What a lovely drive to work. the only problem is that it takes you to work. But it also takes you home.

    Beautiful!!!! The cold is coming here but so far we still have sun. I can take cold if there is sun. At least in small doses. 🙂

  7. LOVE the photos! Whose author event did you attend???

    • Thanks Amelia :). I have been to quite a few author events lately, and I really enjoy hearing what they have to say about their writing habits and styles and where they get their ideas. A few months ago I saw Kelley Armstrong. Have you read any of her books? She’s amazing!, Last weekend I saw Guy Gavriel Kay, who wrote a famous fantasy series back in the 1980’s and who now writes mostly historical with a slight fantasy aspect. His latest books have been about ancient China. Monday night my friend and I went down to Toronto, and we saw Abbi Glines, Colleen Hoover, Jamie McGuire, and K.A. Tucker, who are all New Adult authors. It was a great event with lots of awesome questions from the audience, and we got our books signed and had our pictures taken with the authors. I think I have about 24 autographed books now!! 🙂

    Sometimes photos are best left alone…. as your post proves… lovely shots… and I enjoy being up early in the morning to watch the sun rise.

    I never tire of a sunrise. You are fortunate indeed to have retained the wonder that still prompts you to stop to capture another moment that speaks to you–and to have a mate who not only doesn’t mind, but also supports you when you do. I am similarly fortunate, and very grateful!

    Wow I love it, so beautiful!

    • Thanks book buddy :). It was beautiful that morning, but now we are having a big rain storm with high winds which has really put a damper on trick or treating for the kids :(. Oh well, lots of chocolate left over for me :).
