Come with me!

What is a ‘normal’ day for you?

I like to GO! I usually find an excuse to run ‘errands’ every day!

The skies have been gorgeous this summer and our temps here in North Central Florida? Usually in the high 80s or low 90s….feeling warmer with the high humidity.

Let’s drive back into my neighborhood.

In the late afternoon, some of these big billowy clouds give us a welcome shower. And sometimes something unexpected…

You are so right...enjoy it all now, don't wait for special things...because sometimes just getting out of bed and facing a new day is pretty darn special. What you showed in your photos was wonderful to see and didn't cast a thing. God is good. xoxo,Susie

I'm like you, Diane. I like to be out and about and moving! Great pictures of the clouds and rainbows! xo Diana

Karen said...

Great advice! and I'm a person who likes to GO too... also run errands just about every day. I actually don't mind going to the grocery store.

How nifty! I saw a double rainbow once-- many years ago. Pretty rare around here.

Cherry's Prairie Primitives said...

Love the beautiful rainbows!!

Pamela Gordon said...

I agree Diane. There is so much beauty around us if we only look. The clouds and sky there are indeed beautiful. I love the big white puffy clouds and the rainbow. Enjoy the weekend.

koralee said...

Lovely photos...I am a get out and do girl too. Happy weekend...looks like you have sun and blue skies...enjoy

Vee said...

Amen to that!

I'm completely the opposite from you. I do not want to get out everyday or run errands on a daily basis. I can count on three fingers the times I've been out this month and it's the 20th! It's the cost of gasoline and things and making a tank last a month and this that and the other. One of the reasons I need to use my words. ☺

I think it's important to encourage children without going over the deep end. Lavish praise is, in my opinion, false.

Vee said...

Oh. And here I didn't tell you how gorgeous your photos are and how nice to see a rainbow. I keep looking for one after the thunderstorms, but never finding it.

Happy@Home said...

Good advice and beautiful photos of the double rainbow.

Beautiful photos! How wonderful to see the rainbow!

Ocean Breezes and Country Sneezes said...

What a beautiful drive! Some days I like to run and someday like to stay home! LOL! Whatever you decide to do have a great weekend!

TexWisGirl said...

your skies are beautiful!

me, i'm a homebody. i have to force myself to leave the property - like when i completely run out of milk, bread, fruit... :)

ImagiMeri said...

How funny that your skies look just like ours here in AZ. I've been running a lot of errands, mostly for my mom, so they haven't been fun ones. I did manage to make it to Hobby Lobby the other day for some Christmas goodies....yes, they're already selling Christmas. Have a lovely weekend pretty lady.

Hugs,
Meri

Becca said...

This is so beautiful! I would love to watch those afternoon storms come in! (couldn't handle the humidity though lol) I miss the rain...we haven't had rain since 6/26!

Your sky pictures are breathless.

Thank you.

A double rainbow is awesome and that sky IS gorgeous!!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

It's gotten pretty hot here! I try to get out every other day at least! Afternoon showers are nap time for me!!

hugs,
Linda

Jeanne said...

I am a mix of hermit and adventurer but I love getting in that car with the camera bag on the passenger seat. We have been blessed with some beautiful skies so far this summer. Your pictures are beautiful.

Susanne said...

I'm just the opposite, I'm a home body, I don't need to be on the go. I enjoy my home and waited 18 years to get it (although we had owned other houses in the past). Some days I need to get out and just do what I need to do, run errands, go to the grocery, visit a friend, babysit my grandson, etc., but just about every game in life is all about "getting to home base" like baseball, Parcheesi, etc......it's all about "HOME".

Stacey said...

What a beautiful sky. :) Looks pretty much like that here in Texas too. We've been lucky to have some rain here lately and it's bright green in the pastures and yards. Love it!

Incipient Wings said...

It's a bit too warm here.

I love to go out every day too - just to get out and explore. It sure is pretty in your area! Love the rainbows! sandie

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Some weeks I just want to go, go, go, but I think it is mostly to escape the work, work, work! Haha!! Some weeks I don't even get dressed until noon and am completely lazy!

Your photos are so beautiful. I think Florida has the most gorgeous skies! And I really love the rainbow.

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

You're so right -- it's so wonderful to try to find at least a little time each day to do something restful and fun. Love that double rainbow!!
