A Few Words for Wednesday

Emily has informed me in her not so subtle way, that our summer time fun in the sun as we know it, is officially over and that it's time for me to get serious again.  As long as I can still enjoy a few roses along the way...touching my heart and are inspiring too.

More Blue Skies on Sunday

We have had some really beautiful blue skies lately, although everyone is still happy when we see a few clouds...hoping for a good rain shower, but as you can see in these photos, it's still extremely dry here.  At least the 100 degree weather seems to have gone...something to be thankful for!  I haven't seen too many butterflies around this summer so it was lucky to see this one fluttering around the flowers at the museum.  I have seen lots of starry nights since it has been so clear but it's also fun to see the stars at the planetarium.  They are still showing the summer skies but I am almost ready to see the fall skies...a simple joy of watching the stars, one of my favorite things to do.
