Weekend Waterview: A Little Steam Fog


Happy Sunday!


I hope you’re enjoying some beautiful fall weather this weekend and cooler temperatures like we are in North Carolina.


After our much-needed rain, it’s nice to have a sunny weekend to enjoy and crisp fall mornings.


And watch the steam fog drift quietly across the lake.



We only have tiny pockets of fall color from the maple trees with the foliage still mostly green.


There’s a threat of frost tomorrow, time to pull out the sweaters . . .


Chloe & Gracie hope you’re enjoying some beautiful fall weather where you are!


Thank you for your visit!

    Hi Mary, a real freeze here in Hoosierland. I’ll be pulling the remainder of my annuals and putting away the bird baths that freeze..but our Fall has been absolutely beautiful!! Our weather will be back in the 70s by the end of the week but probably for short period of time. I see you are waiting for your color a frost or freeze should help that along as you probably know. Have a great day and enjoy your water!! And, the two puppies!!! 🌾🍂🍁🍂🍁🍂🍁💨💨💨

    Good morning from beautiful Iowa where we have seas of corn and soybeans, your pictures are beautiful this morning. I love the mist on the lake like that, it is so quite and serene. Thank you for sharing.

    A Michigan good morning on this bright, cold Sunday. Fall is definitely in the air. Your misty lake is simply magical and sweatered pups adorable on their vintage tartan blanket. As always your blog filled all of us with joy. May you have an autumnal week full of Grace.

    How I wish Sadie and I were snuggled up in sweaters, but TX isn’t there just yet. Your morning lake views are feeding my soul, Mary. Looking out to serene water views are the best! Love the cute sweaters the girls are wearing. ;-)
    Happy Sunday in NC……..Sarah and Sadie

    We have had two freezes here in Chicagoland, and my house of full of white bagged houseplants that were outside. Garden is done…many flowers are dead…part of the cycle of life. Enjoy your reprieve…and Fall. Lovely post, nice to see the lake looking like a lake., Sandi

    Your photos captured the ever-changing mist, Mary. It was almost like being there. Love G&C’s sweaters!

    Mary, Hurray for sweater weather! I’m so happy to see your lake full and the girls in their adorable outfits. Leaves in very northern New England are past peak now, with lower VT and MA peaking, and I think southern CT will come in mid week, just in time for a nice bday present for me! I will be spending some time this week chair sitting and catching up on your lovely posts. These photos of your lake are so amazing. Have a wonderful day! Linda

    Love your photos of Lake Norman with the scenic, serene views especially with the mist. Chloe and Gracie are just precious in their matching sweaters.

    Beautiful pictures Mary! I am envious of the cooler temperatures you are experiencing! Here in Southern California it has been hot and uncharacteristicly humid, with humidity levels at 80 to 90 percent…yuck! I am really looking forward to cooler temperatures, but in the mean time I can relax and live vicariously through your lovely pictures!

    Was 25 degrees this morning so we finally had out first frost. We missed out on the cool temperatures Saturday morning because we had lake effect clouds from Lake Michigan. Started harvest yesterday so was in the kitchen most of the day cooking for the family, our daughter-in-law offered to do the cooking today. The lake looks calm and serene, something I know I would enjoy once harvest is over. The girls look like they are enjoying the cooler weather too.

    Breathtakingly beautiful!

    Love the girls in their sweaters!

    Beautiful photos and I love your two precious fur babies!

    …sigh….95 degrees here. I am SO over summer. Our leaves are yellow alright….yello dead from heat and drought. No rain in 2 1/2 months. Oh how I would love to see a gradual season change other than summer. … Bam….winter.
    I’m sure we’ll still have air conditioner running in november😳
    Your lake scene is beautiful!

  26. October 18, 2015 at 9:11 pm

    Absolute Beauty!! Of course, you know, my faves are Chloe and Gracie in their sweaters!! We had snow here today…and I am so not ready for it!

  27. October 18, 2015 at 10:06 pm

    I so loved seeing your filled lake, Mary, and especially your sweater clad Chloe and Gracie! They always put a smile on my face.
