One afternoon the clouds were so beautiful that I had to stop what I was doing and take photos. Sometimes the sky seems to reach up to heaven. I hope you enjoy them.Read More
Winter is a time for cold, ice, snow, and often dark, gray skies for many people living in the north. I grew up in Tennessee and moved to Florida in my 20’s to escape the gray. Seasonal Affective Disorder hadn’t even been defined then as that happened in the next decade. I just knew I was happy and more energetic in the Florida sun.
Last Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving, we had a cold front come down from up north over night. I woke up to 45 degree F weather. Doesn’t sound cold to you, does it? Well it was cold for Florida. What makes it worse is the strong wind blowing. When I went outside in my slacks and sweatshirt, as usual, we had gorgeous blue skies. I decided I would go for a ride. I’ve been meaning to visit a thrift store that I haven’t visited in almost 2 years. After Thanksgiving stores will be zooey (like a zoo). The day before would be fun to just explore.
I love living in Florida – blue skies, puffy clouds, and lots of sunshine. One morning I was driving to the market and had to pull in a side street to snap a couple of cloud photos. The sky seemed to reach to heaven.
Last Saturday was a beautiful day here in Central Florida with blue skies and of course, lots of sunshine and heat. Around seven PM is a great time to stretch my legs and take a little walk down the street. The sun is lower in the sky and the heat of mid-day has lessened. There is a slight breeze in the air.
I don’t know about you, but the words “a beautiful day in the neighborhood” make me think of Mr. Rogers. I miss that kind man on TV. Anyway, a few days ago I went into the yard about 11 am and looked at my vinca (periwinkle).
