Postcards from a weekend trip

It is grey and cloudy outside.It's been like this for the last two days.A sad reminder that the cold is coming with dull and dark days.I love snowy wintry days but when they a bathed in a lot of sunshine.The lack of light makes me depressed.
The pictures I am posting are from about two weeks ago.The fall Saturday was gorgeous like it was supposed to be.Warm and sunny with abundance of all the colors the fall can bring.My family and I went on a short trip antiquing around in the nearest little towns.We stopped to take pictures every time we saw a beautiful view.Nowadays even my husband is contaminated with the photo bug.He got himself his own camera and competes with me who is going to take a better picture.Sometimes he takes a really good ones!

The most beautiful autumn

This is the most beautiful autumn I have ever experienced.I can't have enough of it.Wonderful mild weather with a lot of sunshine  perfect for walks with a camera in hand.The colors are unbelievable this fall;from warm green and light yellow to deep orange and flaming red.I took multiple walks in the woods and around town to enjoy the pretty scenery.As being a little bit stressed out at work at the moment,who doesn't,this beauty feels like a balm for my soul.I hope the good weather stays longer to keep the leaves on the trees.The yard decorations in the fourth picture are not mine.I took this picture when I went leaf watching around town last week.And the river in the fifth picture is the Mississippi River.Just the picture turned out good and I would like to share it with you.

Sketches from the airport-2

Some more sketches I did at the airport in Chicago while people watching and waiting for my next flight back in May.I can't forget that extremely sweet dog, so happy and well behaved.I wish I had such a cutie like her.

I can't believe it is October already!But it seems to me I say it every time a season or a month changes.Time flies so fast isn't it?It is real fall now with all its glamour.I think I already mentioned that before,it is my favorite season.I love its gorgeous colors and light,especially when the sun shines.
And it is such fun to ride your bike down the bike trail through the fall colored woods!!!I love the foggy mornings when the fog creates such magical images.I love the fall because it's the time when the school starts with all kinds of activities and there is no bored kids in the house anymore.And also the soup season begins!!!!I looove me some beef soup with cabbage,potatoes and looots of carrots!

From my sketchbook


When travelling by plane a person wastes tons of time waiting at the airports.That's why I always bring a sketchbook with me.The sketches above were done at the Minneapolis and Chicago Airports and on the plane.As you can see it was in May when my daughter and I were on our way to Bulgaria.

I am saying Goodbye to the summer with some pictures of our trip to Bulgaria.My daughter will never forget the beautiful countryside with the wild flowers and strawberries, butterflies and farm animals.She still remembers grandma's delicious meatballs and soups.She was amazed by the aroma of the fresh fruit just picked up from the tree.The fruits and veggies from the store do not smell like that.They smell like freezer.Sometimes she daydreams:I wish we could go back to Bulgaria just for a week:to see baba/grandma/and to take a walk in the countryside."
