A Contest I Didn't Have
Still Weekending

All By Myself

This grrl had the right idea as she was in a sundress. Look at the blue sky!!

Sunday Smith had to work, which meant our usual routine was not to be. After accomplishing 2 loads of laundry, a trip to the grocery store, and while standing with dusting cloth in hand, I realized the weather was far to fine to be confined to more household chores.How many beautiful days do we have to waste before the snow and cold descend? NONE! I jumped in the car and decided to see where it would take me and it went with a well worn path. Up, up we climbed while squeals of joy escaped from my throat, my eyes filled with the delight of the mountains, and a smile beamed on my face, the car drove directly to Silver Lake.

The path was snow packed and icy, but I carefully made my way along, feeling the glorious sun on my face. In the distance I could see the glistening of the frozen lake. What a perfect day, as the breezes were warm, the air only slightly cooler than the valley.

Most of the lake was frozen, with only a small portion of moving water remaining unbound. The ice shimmered with the reflection of the sun.

There is a spot where the trees and sky reflected in the water create one of my favorite Silver Lake scenes.

Vicki always has the best "selfies" and I decided to try my hand at one or two. One is too dark, the other overly bright, but there you have it...me.


what a beautiful day! (I am not so good at face selfies, but I'm getting pretty good at photos of my feet :-)

Good for you. Enjoying a day like a big grrl. Not needing company, just the beauty of the sky and landscape. I'm sorry Smith had to work, but so glad you enjoyed the day!!!

Those are great selfies and I'm glad you got out there. Sometimes a trip like that on your own is just what your soul needs!

Actually, YOU are the best Silver Lake scenes.

Great happy selfies in a favorite spot. Glad you got a chance to get out and recharge.

Now that sounds like the perfect thing to do . . . when you're on your own. . . on a lovely Sunday! (So glad you put down that dust rag. Life is too short to waste a blue-sky day.)

Love your "Selfies" - I take a terrible photograph whether I or someone else takes it. Just not photogenic I suppose.
Gorgeous day and scenery too!

Thanks for sharing your beautiful day and smile!

Gorgeous!!! Love you!!

I love days like that. :) Glad you took advantage of it!

Gorgeous day, and gorgeous smile on my dear friend!

*LOVE* your selfies!! And Laurie is correct, the best Silver Lake scene is the one with you in it! What a gorgeous day - glad you found a way to enjoy it.

where is your sundress :) Love the selfies, mine are horrible I think I need more practice.

Thanks for taking us along on your trip to Silver Lake. That's just one reason I love reading your blog, love the western sunshine!
Thank you so much for taking the time to share it because it is SO appreciated.

I'm so glad you got out into the wild while the weather is still warm. You have to make the most of it while it lasts.

I think those selfies are just right. They capture your smile and the moment. That's a lot for a picture like that, IMO.

Great job on the selfies! And the views...oh those skies!

I like those selfies! You look joyous, and the day looked lovely. You are right, capture those last few days of good weather; who knows when they will come again. Be present!

Gorgeous pics! Nice selfies, and great that you're taking advantage of the good weather.
