Gorgeous #FALLweather for a picnic

It is a GORGEOUS #Fall day and it occurred to me that after working at First Baptist Church of Eupora for a little over five years, that I have never enjoyed a picnic outside. Since I can’t drive myself and the shoulder for a few weeks, I am stranded here at lunch. Pepper bought a sandwich from Subway this morning, and for the first time in five years, I sat on the steps and enjoyed the sounds and sights and sun and wind of this Fall day. I was a little frazzled from too much activity this morning (it happens sometimes) so initially, I thought I would unplug, but I love taking a few photos and I couldn’t resist a few snaps of the roses and the architecture, the water falling and the wind whipping the flags. I hope y’all enjoy the short videos and photos of the sounds and sights of lunch today. I know it is silly, but I LOVED it! I hope you enjoy! Continue reading
