Quality Days

“To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts.” Henry David Thoreau

Guess that makes artists of all the Sky Watch Friday fans showing of their view to the sky, always entertaining to see how something as simple as the sky we all share can provide so many different moods. Click to enlarge.

Often wildlife find their way into sky photos. When deciding on this photo thought I should check with a bird watcher for a name of the owl sitting on the end of the pier, someone would be sure to ask.

Was very funny when they told me that it was a very rare sighting in Australia of the black plastic owl decoy, designed to frighten off other birds from bothering fishermen pulling up at the end of the day. We don’t see them every day around these parts.

Making all your days a quality day is a challenge, there is so much to distract us. Working on my bucket list pages gives me a chance to think of what is important. This week’s addition is a simple little page with a big wish that ties up all that is important to me.

To spend a season on Martha’s Vineyard, Thanksgiving all the way through New Years tucked up with the family. Spending our time together at farmer’s markets, preserving yummy things, baking, and crafting special home made gifts for each other with lots of long walks on the beaches making extra special memories.
