The capital!

Isn't it amazing? When you think you can't take another minute of rain and wind, you look out the window, and there is a giant shining orb in the sky. Warmth streaming in through a window. The greens are the most vivid green, the flowers are gently swaying as if to say, "come out and look at me." Yesterday was a much needed break in our horrid wind/rain gray skies. We had a full day of sunshine. The kind of day that makes you want to take off your shoes and linger a little longer out doors. Unfortunately I didn't have the luxury of an entire day to goof off. I did steal a few minutes to go to our capital building and look around. This is Salem, OR, state capital. Beauty beyond beauty. I wasn't alone. Many were down walking around taking in the blooms and fountains. The gold man, a pioneer, on the very tip top was glistening in the sunlight. Children's laughter ringing through the air, and couples walking hand in hand. Oh glorious day. Now today the sky is gray, the widnows spotted with raindrops. I will sit and look at the photos from yesterday, yearning for another sunny day.

Holy moly! These are beyond gorgeous my friend. Can you believe I have never actually walked around down by the capital building? I've driven by a thousand times, & always think of stopping & doing just this. I am SO glad you took this time yesterday! The colors are delightful!

Hope your owie is healing lady!
