Another Saturday night

It's been a low-key day here. We'd plan to drive to Tupelo to watch our great nieces swim meet, but my energy level is still low so we opted to stick around the house.

The weather was stellar. While the sun was warm, a cool breeze out of the northwest made it long-sleeve weather. The dogs love this weather.

Since I haven't ventured far from home, my photo ops have been limited. Today I did manage to see an autumn weed (I don't know the name) but the sun highlighted it from the rear making it appear that it was glowing.

Alabama played on TV this afternoon. About 4 minutes before the end of the game, the lights flickered and then faded to black.

I stepped out on the back porch and the night sky looked like a velvet blanket covered with diamonds. There wasn't any wind. I can't imagine what caused this outage.

So we ate our supper by lantern light.  Thankfully, just after we used flashlights to load the dishwasher, the lights flickered to life. When I flipped the TV on, the game was over. Alabama had won, but I would like to have seen the closing moments.

I hope you all have a great Saturday night and Sunday.

    Even weeds can be beautiful. Glad to hear you're on the mend!!

  2. Amazing how power failures don't care what we think! Sorry you missed the last of the game, but it did allow some romantic moments by lantern light. Life whips us a little sometime, but all in all, Life is good. That is a spiffy bright shot you have there. Take care my friend and hope you feel in the pink in the morrow.
    Love sent from Florida!!!

  3. Beautiful photo.... Even though it is considered a weed, the glow of the flowers in the light makes it look like an award-winning plant. Love it!
    I hope that you feel better each day. Continue to try and rest....
    Take care.
    Smiles from Jackie

  4. It was wise to stay home instead of trying to travel when you are still recuperating.

  5. It sounds like you are feeling better which is great. I have to say this photo is beautiful like an angel on nature. We need angels right now don't we?

  6. Good idea to keep things low key till you are better. Nature does give us some of the most beautiful sights. Glad the power outage didn't last long at all. Hope you two have a wonderful Sunday.

  7. So glad to hear you're feeling stronger. If Auburn couldn't pull out a win, I'm happy Bama did.

  8. We had a pretty average weekend, be it a wet one

  9. Eating supper by lantern light sounds very romantic even when it's not planned. It slows things down a bit and give you time to enjoy Jilda's cooking.... At least your team won but too bad you missed the ending.
