Wordless Wednesday with Words

(c) Misty DawnS

I've been accused of being obsessed with sunsets. Hmmmm, I can't imagine why people would think such a thing of me ;-) Now, with this photo, I think I've probably proven this statement to be true. I just thought it was so neat the way the reflection of the sunset was framed by the window on our steel equipment building.

This brings up a little side note for me. When I entered that photography contest in the nearest 'city', someone had used an old window frame to frame their photo of a hill covered with flowers. It was so creative and really turned out neat. So, I told Hubs that I need some old wooden window frames so I can try this with my photos. Don't worry Barb, I won't take them out of your barn... although, that would be pretty neat.

As far as being obsessed... well, let's just say, if Hubs was looking into Tuscany villa rentals, I'd be charging the camera batteries and daydreaming about sunsets. I'm obviously obsessed with talking and rambling on too, because these posts are supposed to be wordless; Yet, mine hardly ever are. hehe



I adore sunsets and pictures of sunsets. I must have at least a million. I love this reflection shot. Great idea.


You have stopped me ... just soaking in this image ... the sunset almost appears to be a print set into the metal frames. The siding shows very little of the hue of the sunset, making the window image all the more singular. Beautiful!

I love You, Misty!

what a great shot. David will be proud. :)
happy WW!


I think you've got one very cool obsession. This picture absolutely sings, and I can't stop looking at it.

I've posted my WW contribution here, and hope you'll drop by for a look:

It isn't anywhere near as stunning as yours, but I hope it brings you a smile all the same.

Have a great Wordless Wednesday!

All the best,



My Darling Friend, please forgive this intrusion … but knowing your compassionate Heart, I am compelled to send this to you. Please read it, and follow your Heart’s leading. I have unwavering trust in that. I Love You, Your Servant, John-Michael

Oh my darlings, you sure know how to make a girl cry. I have just come home briefly to check in, there are too many messages to answer but I appreciate each and everyone one of then so very much.

Unfortunately, I have been given a bit of a bum steer in terms of Jack being able to stay in Hospice with me. That is actually not the case, apart from a night here and there, so the woman that told me it was possible has really got a lot to answer for as I pinned all my hopes on this. Anyway, Jacks Dad came down and can stay at my place this week at least but that's it. After that who knows and yet they are saying I need to be in Hospice for a lot longer yet.

The pain last night, defied description I have never felt such pain in my life including child birth, I was a sobbing mess, eventually they had to knock me out and I finally got some rest. Anyway they are comparing scans and trying very hard to work out what is best to do. I know I desperately need chemo, the longer I go without it, the bigger the tumour is growing and pressing further on the nerves. So now not only do I have megga pain that is not responding to treatment, I have a child not welcome at Hospice and my life is completely screwed.

I spent the night in tears and most of the day too, I don't have think I have any left but who knows, I will let you know how tonight goes. I am a broken woman.

There is talk about Jack having to move up with David to Warragul and change schools and everything. I said NO WAY I am not giving him up when I am not ready to die and I am not giving him up twice. I will work something out. There is no way he needs to go to another school, he needs the security of his local school here and his friends and having close contact with me.

Anyway my friends, it is a lot to contemplate tonight, I will do my best and I will not be letting my son go away from me no matter what. Please keep praying and sending me your love and care, I need you all so desperately right now. I hate to have to go, but I must leave now to go back to Hospice as they need to medicate me there, it is too dangerous to be on the medication I need to be on at home.

I will be thinking of you and I will post again either tomorrow or the next day, I promise.

Love to you all, my heart is full of you love and hugs to each and every one of you. Xxxx

VERY COOL MISTY, VERY COOL! You are no more obsessed with sunsets then you are with dogs. (That was funny eh!) Love ya dork!


What a stunning shot of the sunset. I do admire sunsets/sunrise myself.


This photo made me squeal right out loud (even if I am having trouble spelling squeal, but you wouldn't know that if I didn't tell you, would you? Just ignore this parenthetical part.) when I first saw it in my reader. Now I just keep staring at it. I love, love, love it! You've got all the important things in there - sunset, the moon, trees, great reflection. I could just go on and on....

Maybe we should find a more wordy meme for you - like Picture and a Story, instead of Wordless Wednesday? :P


If you're going to have an obsession, why not with sunsets?! You definitely get to see some beautiful ones!


Don't feel bad...I have been told I am preoccupied with sunsets as well. Nice picture.


There is nothing wrong with being obsessed with sunsets.

Hi Misty, re: the rose, I took that pic last night at dusk. I know it looks like night time. And I will take a pic when it's in full bloom. Thanks for visiting!

I love your sunset photo, I haven't thought to try to frame them with a window frame :) Thanks for the idea :)

We just don't get gorgeous sunsets like that around here - good thing I have yours to look at!

Sunsets are your niche, embrace it, because so many people search for their niches, and don't end up finding them. You already have yours. :)
