Blue Sky Bare Trees

We had a rare thunderstorm in the wee morning hours and it sounded as if it would rain forever, but a few hours later as we sipped our coffee, the rain had moved eastward and we could see patches of blue sky through our window.
We had several errands today so we walked early. The winds was so brisk we could have flown a kite.
On the final lap as we walked back through the garden, I looked up. The clouds and blue sky were stunning. 
I wasn't sure how this photo would turn out, but I snapped it anyhow. I used my Hipstamatic app and unlike most of the pictures I've posted lately, I didn't adjust it at all.
Last night we got a message from one of our friends in Tuscaloosa and she said she was listening to one of our songs on All Things Acoustic. That's a show on Alabama Public Radio.
By the time we got the radio turned on, the song had finished playing, but the DJ sends out a playlist from the previous evening, and there were were. 
Jilda and I both did a happy dance.
Tomorrow we have our songwriter group meeting. Jilda's whipping up a batch of her vegetable soup and a new recipe for bacon cheddar cornbread. 
I hope you all have a delightful weekend.


  1. Seems like a lot of people are making soup today. I made some Spinach Bean soup.
    Cool photo!!

  2. Neat picture. It is remembering old songs that I miss my hearing. Sometimes if all is quiet except the song, and someone lets me know the words at one point sometimes I can follow along. One reason I like Christmas. I know most of the old Carols. LOL

    The vegetable soup & cornbread sound wonderful!! What time is dinner?

  4. WOW, that sounds great for you and Jilda, yay :)

    The food sounds very yummy...mmmm

  5. The picture is neat.
    Soup is the item of the day in this part of New York
    Cornbread sounds like a good addition. Enjoy.

  6. Congrats on being famous...on the radio! I remember the scene from the movie "That Thing You Do" where the kids hear their record on the radio for the first time....they go crazy! I'm sure your happy dance was pretty similar! Enjoy that lovely sounding soup and corn bread and have a good Sunday!

  7. Congrats on your song! I can't imagine writing one! The sky shot was spectacular! The soup and cornbread sound delicious!

  8. Great news about your song! That picture is really lovely...the colors and all...perhaps a sign of beautiful skies ahead.

  9. Congrats, that's a nice way to end the day.
    I love cornbread especially with jalapeno but bacon cheddar sound nice too with a bowl of veg soup.

  10. That photo is incredible. Congrats for having your song on the radio!

  11. So cool to be on the radio. You deserve success and all things good. It rained quite hard here during the late afternoon to early evening, but it wasn't a thunderstorm.


  12. It doesn't get better than that - a good walk with your favorite love, your song on the radio, and good soup and cornbread. You're living the life, my friend!

  13. that cornbread sounds delicious!

  14. A January thunderstorm? That's a rarity indeed!
