Photo Friday: Fog at Sunset

The rain storm that blasted through the south ended in a lovely fall finish.  It had been warm all day and when the rain stopped the fog began.  It was the strangest sunset I have ever seen!

SilhouetteEerie, yet lovely.

PersimmonIntense!

BTW The tree is not a tangerine.  They don’t grow here.  It is a *Fuyu Persimmon and for the first time it was loaded!  YUM!  🙂  Nobody on my street like persimmons but me.  😦

Bonus points if you find the man in the Oak tree.  😉

NOTE:  *I hate persimmons, but make an exception for the Fuyu variety.  You eat them like an apple while still firm!  They can be cooked but I prefer them fresh.  Although, I may have to make an exception this year.  Waste not want not.

A moment in time

Saturday was an epic day.  I was able to slowly, and carefully, walk the whole trail at the Mountain Farmlet.  I won’t say my knee didn’t hurt, but I didn’t swell up either.  Then on the way home we saw this…

It was a promise of rain on the way that was delivered overnight.  We are not  in the deep freeze, and life is getting more comfortable!

How was your weekend?

By the way,  I went to the specialist and I have arthritis in my knee.  No surprises there I guess.   I have it in my fingers and elsewhere, though thankfully not so painfully.  The Dr gave me several options;  I chose a shot and some exercises to do, with a return appointment scheduled for the end of February.  By the way, I am happy to tell you that a shot in your knee is way less painful than one in your thumb joint!  😉

 

The road to home

On our way to the Mountain Farmlet we crossed over the bridge into Decatur and saw something we never expected to see.  I wanted pictures, but we were late because I had forgotten my purse and we had to go back and get it…

I would have just lived without it, but the keys were in it!  😯

On our way home Bob parked along the docks long enough for me to get this.

I liked them better in this light anyway.  Yes, there are two!
