What’s Up Lately.
We’ve arrived at episode 007!!
Does that mean I have covert information?!
Top secret stuff to share?!
I’m rubbing my hands with glee because I actually do have new developments to share.
It is fall, everybody!!
The trees along the Blue Ridge Parkway are glorious with their red, and yellows, and oranges.
They make me happy to live in Virginia and within a 5-minute drive of seeing the Blue Ridge Mountains in all their splendor.
I don’t see fall as winter is around the corner…I fully embrace this season in the here and now.
Hello Hair Time.
I got my hair done.
I love when it’s time to go in for my hair appointment. I’m not very good at self-care. This is one of the few places that I indulge myself and I leave there so happy. I get to have great conversation with my hairstylist and I get to leave feeling beautiful.
Yellows seem to be my favorite of the fall colors. There’s just something about the way that they pop off of the browns. I do love the reds on trees, but those yellows on against the browns are just amazing.
Do you have a favorite autumn color?
I can’t stand it any longer.
I wouldn’t make a very good spy.
My BIG news is that I’ve finally made the plunge into selling my photography.
If you dug around my website after I made the announcement of the new layout in my last “What’s Up Lately” post then you might have already discovered this fact on the “Shop Photography” tab.
However, I’ve been holding off on the official announcement until I have the site more fully stocked.
Even now I still have much to add, but at the current time I’ve decided to use Fine Art America / Pixels to handle the fulfillment of my work and they just sent me a notice that they are offering free shipping within the United States until Sunday at midnight EST.
I will be adding to the collection throughout the weekend, but there may already be something there that is what you have been seeking.
If so, this is the direct link to my page:
Part of my fully embracing autumn is getting and hiking more and more.
One of my strange quirks (very Virgo of me) is that I carry my ID on me when hiking, just in case anything untoward should happen to me. I almost hate to share that given my post on Halloween.
However, this is the truth of how my mind works and how I appease it.
Well, I lost my drivers license on the trail this week.
Very UN-Virgo of me.
We walked the trail again the next day and it was nowhere to be found. It doesn’t have my current address printed on it…so there’s that. I ordered a new one and they give you a temporary to print out. Which is a good thing because my rule-following self would be petrified is I was driving around without my driver’s license (although I’ve had no accidents or speeding tickets in my life…knock on wood).
The Reading Challenge is moving forward.
Missed my status? Check out Episode 006.
I finished The Mermaid and Mrs. Hancock . It was definitely an interesting read.
I asked my librarian for a recommendation and she shared Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris. I’m about to start it.
I also picked up Cymbeline by Shakespeare to fill the play genre.
Have you read anything good lately?
Sunrise on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
On Miss Sunshine’s early days, she gets dropped off at school before the sun rises. I made plans to head up to the Blue Ridge Parkway to capture an actual sunrise.
Here is a quick capture.
I’m just beginning to process the photos and hope to have those ready for the public very soon.
Be sure to check out the “Shop Photography” section and tell me your favorite shot or what you would like to see more of.
I hope you are having a glorious day filled with all that makes your spirit soar.
Let your light shine!
