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.

  1. Looks like a good time was had by all! :)

  2. Glad you are enjoying the sunshine and not-so-hot temps!

    We have had plenty of rain here, something to be thankful for...and sunshine today...perfect for my hubby out mowing and weed-eating while I am inside making Christmas ornaments (planning ahead for my fall shows).

    Give Emily a smooch. ♥

  3. I wish it would cool off here. Yesterday 104, today 98. I look forward to Winter. I love the rain, which we never have enough of.

    I love the picture of the squirrel in your header. We have a little orphan one who has been around for about a year now. I think he/she is lonely. It sits on our chain link fence along with the birds, and eats with them. His name is Filbert or if it's a girl her name is Filberta.


  4. What a happy blog. I tell you, the weather here has been hot/humid. I don't do well with humidity..Haven't been at the computer for awhile..everything was an effort. Cooler weather coming in. I didn't seem many butterflies before, either..but now they are on the move. Same with the Dragonflies..I have a butterfly/moth on my have to click on the picture to see it up close..what a cute little guy..looks like he was looking at me..course it was just his markings..I make sure no one is around, cause I am chatting up a storm with them..The simple things in life, give us the greatest joy..Have a great week..xoCarolyn/Rosebud
