Saturday report

It's been cloudy here today. There were moments when the dusty clouds swirled off to the east allowing the sun to find me, but those moments were rare.

I took the opportunity to mow a little grass while it was cool. In the field next to the apple tree, goldenrod leaned toward the open space to get a little sun. Stopping the mower, I snapped a photo.

Jilda had an appointment to get her hair cut at 5:30 this evening so I ran to the grocery store to pick up a few things for supper while she was getting all purtyfied (is that a word?).

As I walked out of the store, my cell phone chirped with a text saying she was finished. A few minutes later we were heading home.

At a red light before we turned onto our pig trail, we saw the moon peeking over the eastern horizon. It wasn't full tonight, but it was close. Hopefully, the clouds will be as cooperative tomorrow evening for the eclipse. We're excited.


  1. Fingers crossed, every eclipse seems to be on cloudy nights.

    I expect a picture of the eclipse!!

  3. I'm looking forward to the eclipse too. It seems funny to see the goldenrod lean out that way. All I ever see is that the goldenrod is boss and bends to none.

  4. Your view coming home is a welcome sight. I think everyone's eyes will be on that moon tonight. I think it somehow draws us together, knowing we all see the same moon. Hope your Sunday is a wonderful one!

  5. In the past several years I have enjoyed my wife when she returned from the 'Beauty Shop'. She seems to always like her hair, and I get a big smile when I say, 'It looks great', and it always does. Love the color contrast with the Golden rods (?)

  6. I wonder if I will see the eclipse...time will tell. I love that picture with the bright yellow against the green

  7. I'm hoping it will be clear enough here too.. I want Valentina to see it too :-)

  8. When I was in fifth grade or so, I read a poem (maybe was required to memorize it or at least copy it into a booklet of poetry?) about autumn. One of the lines said, "The goldenrod has lighted its candles bright and clear, and purple starry asters are blooming far and near."
    The goldenrods really do light up the autumn landscape.

  9. My Saturday was a cold and wet one, thankfully I didn't have to go out and do anything.
