Skywatch Friday – Springtime!

Up first thing this morning and we had some color in the sky!! I was up early because I am experimenting around with yoga classes. I realized that the reason I got into yoga a couple years ago was because of the breathing and stretching and the classes that I’m taking have gotten away from that so I went to a “gentle stretch yoga” class Wednesday morning and it was wonderful. So first day of branching is a success.

This is from a family outing this past weekend. Pretty soon all these trees will have leaves on them.

The park is adjacent to old sand mines on the Arkansas River. The structure you see in the distance I suspect was part of that. There is a geocache located on it. I found it years ago. I went home, grabbed a foldable ladder carried it across the park and set it up and found the cache that way. Those columns are over ten feet in the air. Gravity is not my friend!! Here is my post on my initial look for the cache, eleven years ago! And here is post showing the big, scary, not scared coyote who was staring at me when I came back with my ladder.

Enough of the boring going down memory lane stuff. We went on the Bixby bridge across the Arkansas River. This is looking west. I intend one day to take some sunset photos here.

And here is “tiny planet” type photo that wraps a pano photo up. It is further north on the Arkansas in Tulsa looking at riverfront oil refinery.


And this is not my photo. It is another jigsaw puzzle I solved on my ipad. 440 pieces and it took me a lonnnnnnngggg time to complete it. Just love it. I hauled somebody to a doctor appointment last week and I worked on the puzzle out in the parking lot in my car. Try that with a regular puzzle!!

That’s it for this week. I’m linking with Skywatch Friday. Come join in the fun!!

    Stretching yoga sounds about my speed. My achy joints would really benefit from some good stretching. I wish I owned an iPad. It would be fun trying to do a puzzle.

    All these are beautiful captures. I like the first photo much.
    Jigsaw puzzle sounds wonderful with 440 pieces. I know I don’t have that much patience though I like puzzles with a small number of pieces. 🙂
    Have a great day!

    The puzzle looks like a tough one to do but what a pretty picture outcome. Gentle stretch yoga sounds like the perfect way to unwind a body, especially in these times. Sometimes we get twisted into knots and don’t even know it.

    Yay! Spring is here for you. Lovely sunrise. Glad the coyote only starred at you, probably because of the ladder. That is any amazing “tiny planet”. Happy weekend.

    I liked the look back — the coyote was great. Lots of the old sharing memes have disappeared over the years, lots of bloggers also. Glad you are still here! I haven’t taken a yoga class “in real life” for over two years now — it is hard to get motivated for the ones on Internet even though some of them are really quite good. Somehow it’s a solitary activity that, for me, needs other people. I try to remember the breathing part though.

    Years ago when I took water aerobics and water zumba, we used to do yoga stretches in the last five minutes or so. I loved it. One of the same stretches I also did as part of my PT when I had frozen shoulder in 2019. I’ve never taken a yoga class but that stretching sounds wonderful. The encounter with the coyote not so wonderful.
