Windows of the World - Today in All its Glory

A local surfer hitting the water here at the state beach down the street this morning - Surfing is always an option, no matter what day of year here in my sleepy little beach town.

Another beautiful day is emerging after the rain. Trees bogged down by their water-soaked foliage stretch their soggy limbs skyward, asking to be warmly embraced by the returning sun. Long blades of grass left doubled over by the last night's siege of water and forced to lay on the cold earth, now reach skyward from the warming ground. Pairs of small birds sing out from hiding spots within the ever-blooming bougainvillea that frames the front porch of my little house. Every living thing under the warm benevolent November sun seems so content -

My curiosity was piqued as to what was going on in the rest of the world this very moment. I had one of those kismet moments when I went to Underground Weather on the web to see if any more rain was in my immediate future, and lo and behold there was a gallery of photos showing weather all over the world - right now. I just had to share the beauty of it all.

What Today Looks Like Around the World:

From here to eternity in Wilcox, Arizona at dawn.

Fiery morning mist rises in the Southern pastures of Ventress, Louisiana today.

My hope is that wherever you are, you are basking in the indescribable beauty of the natural world - that you are surrounded by gratitude, joy, and those that love you.
Happy Thanksgiving.

The pictures were beautiful. I got some in email today, that I would like to share, but it won't let me copy them. :(

It's Friday evening here now, and things are winding down. Our son-in-law, grandson and my husband just finished making a drink called Boilo, I'm posting the recipe tomorrow.

Hope your holiday was exactly what you wanted it to be.
