Absolutely smile worthy.

Let us attend to the present, and as to the future,
we shall know how to manage when the occasion arrives.
Time is a great master; he arranges things well.
                                  Pierre Corneille


With an early appointment in the city, I had rushed out the door before the things that needed my attention grabbed hold of that attention. Like those dishes that sat in the sink. Every time I see them, I wonder how two people can create so many dishes.


The morning fog hovered close to the ground as the sun tried to sneak up behind and peek over the top edge. Even though I was in a hurry I could not help myself, I had to stop, enjoy, and take photos. Sometimes this hurried, crazy life that seems to have taken over many of our lives tends to make our head shut out what our eyes want or need to see. It takes away our ability to notice the beauty that surrounds. That is such a shame.




Horses grazed in a small pasture of grass in front of a now full of stubble and empty field. The view that early morning was absolutely breathtaking. Just last week soybeans had grown there and have now been harvested. The noise of combines running and full wagons loaded and spilling some contents on the ground had rumbled through late into the night for over a week. The faint head-lights of combines that slowly moved back and forth in fields off in the distance had me think of the drivers who must be weary.

As I turned a corner, a couple of those harvest wagons sat in a field. Part of the field of soybeans was harvested but the rest was not. It was a huge field. I imagined this farmer was going to be busy late into the night.


I thought about the moonlight that would surely tag along with this farmer while he drove his combine. A farmer, who was probably hurried and weary and this had me wonder if he would have noticed. I am sure it was absolutely beautiful. If this farmer was like me he would certainly take the time to notice and he would smile.


Empty fields, full wagons, beautiful views always bring smiles. This is all absolutely worth those smiles.

I am pretty sure you are smiling now too.

Later

Joining my friend Theresa @Good Fences.Check it out.

  13. Wow, the scenes around here are pretty much the same - harvested soybean fields, machinery in the fields, and beautiful sunrises and sunsets. November has got me under it's spell - and I know this warm weather can't last. We'll probably get a blizzard in another two weeks. But for now, it's just gorgeous and I'm enjoying every minute of it. Hope you have a wonderful evening.

  18. Definitely smiling, foggy mornings are so beautiful when there are country sights to be seen. Beautiful in hilly wooded areas too and on beaches. Not so much in the city where traffic has to inch through it.

  23. These are gorgeous photos and I sure hope the farm workers enjoyed this beauty too. I love early foggy mornings with the sun shining through, especially in the countryside. Mind you, we haven't had very many sunny mornings or days the past 2 weeks! Enjoy the weekend.

  25. First thought that came into my head as I started reading your post and seeing the photos - "Isn't It a Pity" - George Harrison. So, without another thought, I put the headphones on and listened to a couple of versions of that great song.

    Lovely post.
