This Week In Review

This week started off with rain, and plenty of it. It rained all day on Monday and part of the day Tuesday. On these days I just want to stay inside, but there are things that need to be done so up and at it I go.

While I was taking the dog out I saw how this tree's image was reflecting in the roadway.

The leaves on this tree were constantly dripping with water. The dog, hearing the water hitting the ground below kept barking at the tree. Silly Dog!    

But finally, Wednesday brought the sun and it was a welcome sight.

I noticed this shadow on the side of the house from the table and chair on my front porch.

 I also noticed these lovely shadows on the ground from the tables and chairs of the little Cafe where we had lunch on Thursday. I love the pattern of the iron furniture. I know soon these will be stored away until spring.

It has been a busy week for us. Alot of paper went out of our office this week. I tease my husband, telling him that we killed a tree this week, with all the things that we send out in the mail.
My daughter has her first job now. So we had to buy her a few things for her to wear for work. 
We also have a few home repair projects in the works. Both here at home and at my rental house, which my son lives in. We had to make a Lowes run for supplies. 
I am looking forward to a short work week this coming week. Maybe even sleep in a little. Also, looking forward to some Thanksgiving yummies and time with family!
Linked with Shadow Shot Sunday. Stop by for a visit and see the wonderful shadows from around the world. And, Straight Out Of The Camera for some Awesome photos!


  1. The patio shadows are great - although full of fallen leaves, I can imagine the warmer days of summer while relaxing at home. We seem to better appreciate the sun and shadow even better after a massive rain. The sun will really come out tomorrow...

  2. I do love your shadow shots for the day, Jeanette! A perfect picture of Autumn! Hope you have a great week and a beautiful Thanksgiving with your family!


  3. The shadow shots are awesome. I've noticed that all of a sudden the trees here turned over night. I haven't had time to go take any pics. My neighbors leaves are falling but not my red oaks, they are stubborn!

    We could use rain, maybe some day. Happy Thanksgiving.

  4. The tables and chairs provided wonderful shadow opportunities! The one you captured in that second to last shot is quite unusual.

  5. lovely shadow patterns especially around the wrought-iron table/chairs setting

  6. Oh that's quite a week you've had! I hope things do slow down a bit and you can enjoy some sleeping in time! (One of my fave activities ;) Wonderful photos!

  7. Mmmmmmmmmmm, they're all so pretty. And I felt refreshed with the rain!!! There is something about a gentle storm that makes the whole world come alive again. Your shadows are super. I love the bench on the porch.

    Have a blessed, happy Thanksgiving.

  8. I love the contrast between the rainy and sunny shots-both lovely in their own way! The lacy ironwork shadows are particularly pretty!

  9. That is quite a long shadow on that table and chair. It sounds like it's been quite a busy week. I hope you get a chance to relax with the holiday coming up.

  10. I am glad you got some sunshine and shadows. :)


Thanks for stopping by. I hope you take a moment to leave a message or two. I love hearing what you think of my posts!
