Through My Kitchen Window

As I washed the morning's dishes(don't expect to hear that a lot) I looked up.  I had forgotten the variety before me.  The blurriness is from the screen on the window, but it did not detract from the beauty of it.  I stopped washing dishes, grabbed the camera and began to snap pictures.
Charme was grazing green we did not have a few short days ago.
and the boys were dancing.

I was ashamed that I had forgotten the beauty
surrounding me.
Sometimes we become indifferent to what we have.
Today I remembered
and I was thankful while doing dishes.

Morning Gail. Love the header shot and the sidebar one of Charme and Broken Arrow is perfect too. Like you, I feel surrounded by beauty, but I can't see too much of my animals out the kitchen windows. That's stopping to smell the roses....

I appreciate all your visits and sweet comments.

Be thankful too, you looked up. I dream of a day when I can look up and see horses playing, I love the city less and less.

Nice post and pics.

Love the Will Rodgers saying, too.

Hope you have a great day today, Gail!

What a lovely scene you have. Some how we seen to take the little things for granted. When I look out my kitchen window I spy cloths drying on the line and flowers gardens that need watering. If I were your neighbor I'd be gifting your horses with some carrotts and sugar cubes. Humm..can you purchasse sugar cubes anymore? I just dated myself. Have a great day.

It was blurry here this morn', not because of critter movement but the humidity is so high there is a foggy mist in the air. Yep, a body could drown just tryin' to breathe out there today.

Great pics outside your kitchen window Gail. We are bless to see such sights.

You have a fantastic day sweetie!!!

Sometimes we all need to take the time to stop washing the dishes!!

I have some lovely views from my windows too and sometimes I have to step back to really appreciate them, because I see them all the time.
I love seeing all your animals :)

Yeah Gail, that is a very special beautiful view you have out your kitchen window. We should do a thing on our blogs, like Wordless Wednesday only Out My Kitchen Window. It would be cool to see what everyone's kitchen view is!

What a beautiful view from your kitchen window :)

Nora said...

I'm glad for you that you have such a nice view from your kitchen window. It's not something I'm likely to see in town. Just a car barreling at me on the street that turns just before it hits the sidewalk. Consider yourself very fortunate.

What a wonderful reminder of the beauty and joy that surrounds us if we take the time to look. Thanks for the post :)

I try to slow down and enjoy the beauty that the good Lord has surrounded us with every chance I get. You have a beautiful view from your kitchen window.
Blessings to you

I want to move in with you. I'll wash, you dry.

Good thing you were doing those dishes, although I used to have a magnet on my refrigerator that said, "No man was ever shot while doing the dishes!"

I wouldn't mind having all those things to see out my kitchen window I tell ya!

If I had a window in my kitchen, I think I might do the dishes more often.
