A 360 Degree Sunset!

13 Jun

The other evening we had a bit of a storm. Lots of clouds, thunder, and lightning; just enough rain to make it uncomfortably muggy.

When it came time for the sun to set, though, the sky lit up! There was almost a halo of clouds around the horizon and they all picked up the colors. It was incredible!

So, being the budding shutterbug that I am, I grabbed my phone (it gets better shots than our digital) and rushed out to the backyard.

Here are some of the photos.

Yeah, this ball of mud we call home is pretty amazing. 🙂



As It Rains Softly

31 May

101_1222I sit here in the window, watching the clouds.

Watching the clouds and reading.

Reading and sipping tea.

As it rains softly


I sit here under a tree, watching traffic.

Watching traffic and thinking.

Thinking and relaxing.

As it rains softly.


I lie here in bed, listening to the rain.

Listening as it falls, and sighing.

Sighing and smiling.

As it rains softly.
