plural noun: distractions
  1. 1.
    a thing that prevents someone from concentrating on something else.

And sunsets

 Blue skies
And the moon
And lots and lots of walks

  These are the things that have me distracted of late.  It seems such a shame to waste anytime indoors when we can finally enjoy the great outdoors without overheating.  In the past week, there's been lots of clouds and several short little drizzly rains which have been a nice change.  Of course, there's always my work at school and work at home that keep me busy, too.  Just when I think I can find a rhythm to my days, there always seems to be something to distract me.  I hope that wherever you are, whatever you are doing, that all is well in your little corner of the world.
Best wishes and blessings,

I'm convinced these distractions are the best type. Good for the soul. =)

Hi Tammy,
I loved this post. :) I share the same distractions.

Looks very summery there to me. We had our first little dusting of snow here a few days ago, but it's mostly melted except for in the shady spots. There are still some colorful fall leaves on the trees too, though the snow made most of them fall off. It's been cold (lows in the 20s at night) but we're on a warming trend here through the weekend, when it's purported to be going to near 70 on Sunday. The ups and downs of Central Illinois weather. ;)

Hi Tammy,

Lovely to see some beautiful photos from your place. Sunsets and sunrises are always special and I get excited when I see all the colour. I enjoy my walks in the morning - in fact today I just had to snap a few photos which I will share later.
Happy weekend

Perfect word to describe me lately too! I've been walking and baking and cooking and trying to get doctors and vet in before Winter and there's so much to do before then plus the holidays....I need to try and focus on one thing but there's so much! LOL! I've tried to stay caught up with you and I loved your Farmer's Market! Wow! Big one! Ours here is pitiful! LOL! Some people here buy stuff at the grocery stores and try to sell it as farm produce at the FM just higher priced....some people! Glad yours was such a success! I did manage to get to the organic/natural store while I was in Mountain Home seeing the doctor. I need to move closer to a larger community where they have these things. TTYL!

These are all lovely distractions, Tammy. I don't blame you for getting out every chance you get. It's very nice here today but probably won't last much longer. Diane

Oh what pretty photos! I love it that you're getting cooler weather so you can enjoy being outside more. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Wanda said...

Lovely distractions! Lovely photos. We broke a heat record in So. Calif. today 92 in November..sundress and flip flops.

Melanie said...

I don't blame you for wanting to spend as much time outside as possible when the weather is nice. That's one thing I really miss in the extreme cold temps we get here (northern IL) in the winter.

Susan said...

All is okay here, Tammy.

I have missed you!

Hope all is well there. Gearing up for the upcoming holidays and keeping mighty busy here.

Take care. Good to see your post! Susan

Dearest Tammy,
Lovely photos, regardless of the distractions in our lives!
Those shoes are a great action photo; love the palm lined walks you can take.

These distractions are wonderful and I can understand why you are enjoying them. Beautiful photos...

They aren't distractions dear Tammy-- they are beautiful blessings:)

I'm glad you've been able to enjoy some beautiful long walks-- it's so energizing I think to enjoy a wonderful walk in the early morning or at sunset--

Dagmar said...

What a wonderful set of photos, not sure how I missed these wonderful pictures, looks like you are really enjoying these lovely sunrise and sunsets? I know what you mean about just keep walking.
