A Beautiful Sunrise

During this morning’s sunrise, the valley demonstrated all the beauty I know she is capable of. I call the valley “she” as I like to believe that everything natural in the valley is the creation of Mother Nature, in case anyone is wondering.

From the pink tinted sunrise sky to the formless mist lapping against the “shores” of the distant ranges, the entire valley was pure early morning perfection.

See the dark green “island” peeking through the “ocean” of mist?

And while gossamer waves of mist lapped the “shores” of the tree-covered islands …

… an early visitor arrived to join me in admiring the view, as the “waning gibbous” morning moon looked down on us from the waking sky.

Yesterday, between visits from the men installing our new kitchen benchtops, I restored my office back to it’s pre-new-floor-coverings condition. I also took the opportunity to get rid of anything that I no longer have a use for. There’s plenty of sorting and decluttering happening in this house currently! So tonight I am back at my desktop computer. No more fumbling with tiny keys on my iPhone – yay!

The kitchen renovation is scheduled to be finished by the end of this week. Tomorrow, the plumber arrives to restore water to my kitchen. Meanwhile, Bowie needed to investigate the new kitchen sink, as I knew he would. πŸ˜‰

    1. Kathy, I will post photos soon. The kitchen is sooooo close to being finished, but good gracious, what an exhausting job it is! That probably sounds stupid, I haven’t done a thing towards the construction, but I’ve been cleaning each day after the work is finished, and running kettles and coffee cups in and out of the room for weeks. I’m sure it will be worth it in the end though, because it is looking pretty fabulous. πŸ™‚

    1. It does look like a profile of a person’s face, Carol, but do you know that I didn’t really notice it until someone from overseas pointed it out to me? Now I can’t not see that face! πŸ™‚
