Happy Thankful Thursday!

Happy Thursday everyone,

 Hubby and I are thankful we live so close to the lake for our walks.  The beautiful reservoir watershed is all around us. It was a pretty blue sky day, with just a little bit of clouds around. The clouds are looking pretty reflecting on the lake. 



 Relieve Covid stress....Go outside, Have fun, Enjoy life. 

I love looking up at the sky through all these trees. 


 "Every day is a new beginning, take a deep breath and start again."

A different view of the reservoir. 



I heard many different birds during our walk to the lake, we had brief sightings of the Hooded Warbler and possibly a White-eye Vireo.  My photos of these birds were awful, I know. I am only including them in my mosaic so I have a record of my sightings on this walk.




The chicory grows along the fire road in places. 



We take a narrow trail along the lake shore and in this pine forest. 

"Today I will breathe deep and be thankful."




In a world you can be anything, be kind!  





My wish today is my family and friends stay safe and healthy!
I am thankful hubby and I are remaining virus free, I hope everyone is safe and well.


Live simple and be happy!  😊 Take care, keep smiling!


Thank you Michelle for hosting Thankful Thursday

  5. That does resemble a W E Vireo, but the hooded wooded? Not sure on what you mean. Maybe a hooded oriole? Love the chicory blossoms. And the beautiful reservoir images. I'm thankful that I have you sharing your part of the world!

  8. Hi Eileen, I sure enjoyed this post. You know, "Thankful Thursday" makes for an excellent meme. As always, I enjoyed all your photos. That first view of the lake is just exceptional with the water like glass and the reflections. I wish I had a place nearby where I could get into the trees for a look skyward as in the second shot. Including shots in the mosaic that are just to remind of the walk is a great idea. Thank you for sharing your blog. Stay safe and healthy and have happy days ahead. Best regards from Seattle, John

  22. I am always so tempted to plant chicory in our yard, my favorite wildflower. So surprised when I went searching it out and a local nursery told me it was a weed. To some a weed, to another a beautiful flower. Your water pictures are all so soothing. And I love the view through the trees! Happy Thursday!

  26. Relieves stress...oh I so agree! I wish more of my neighbors would get out in nature instead of staying inside their houses all the time. It sure makes me happy to see a pretty wildflower or a butterfly...or a TREE! Love your photos!
