I am sitting in my living room on my favorite chair and trying to answer the questions on Jeopardy tonight. I was on a roll for a little while, but it didn’t last.
We always eat dinner at exactly 6 PM. Always. My husband is the dinner maker and he’s got this thing about it being done precisely at 6. He doesn’t like me hovering in the kitchen when he’s in there, so I keep my distance and spend my time on the laptop, checking my mail, or playing around in Photoshop until it’s time for dinner.
(And yes, I know I am blessed to have dinner served to me every night.)
Tonight at 6:00, I closed my laptop and stood up to go out to the kitchen when I heard my phone ringing. I keep it in my purse, which hangs in the breakfast nook where we eat, so I dashed in there only to miss the call. And then I laughed out loud when I saw that the missed call was from my husband (who was sitting there chuckling).
I don’t even know why I told you that.
I took a walk in the snow after work today. It’s more of a workout in the snow with my big heavy boots. The sun was just setting as I was heading out and I realized I’d left the camera upstairs on the dresser after taking photos of Miss Blackie.
I felt it was just as well, because I already have a lot of sunset pictures.
I walked around the property and then got to this spot – the vantage point that you see above – and my mouth dropped. The sky was pink, with a layer of this beautiful cerulean blue along the horizon. And it just looked all kinds of pretty. And after wrestling with the decision for about 30 seconds, I began the walk back to the house to get the camera.
It was just too pretty to pass up.
And so is Miss Blackie. This is where I found her when I arrived home today. It’s one of her favorite afternoon spots in the wintertime. Our bedroom window gets all the wonderful late afternoon sunlight and has the added bonus of birds outside the window and at the feeders below.
Hope your Friday is a good one. Thanks for stopping by today --
