Day off...sort of

The sky has been soot-gray for days. Last night we wanted to see the full moon on the winter solstice but that didn't happen. I walked out several times before we went to bed but I had no luck.

Then, sometime overnight, the clouds moved off to the east leaving a few wispy clouds just before sunrise.

I shot this same picture a few days ago. It's take off my back deck. Had it been a little lighter, you could have seen the old house and the barn. But as it turns out, the main attractions in this photograph are orange cotton-candy-clouds. 

Jilda and I both had nothing on our calendars today. That is sooooo rare. We could have laid sorry, as my grandma used to say, but we chose to do things that needed doing.

I won't bore you with a list, but tonight I'm as tired as Santa on the morning after.


  1. What an amazing photo with the colorful sky. Sometimes, just doing nothing is better than being busy.
    Hugs, Julia

  2. Great photo. I think I prefer to lay back sorry.

  3. I must agree with Julia about the photo. Glad you had nothing 'scheduled' BUT I woulda 'knowed' you'd find a busy streak! On a homestead like that, y'ain't gonna lay lazy or it will come down around your neck....
    The best and a Merry ?Christmas time over there no, this week it is up there.

  4. Glorious image.
    I hope that as well as tired you are feeling triumphant.

  5. It's been overcast here for the most part. We also had very heavy rain. It's only 57 degrees. Florida will probably freeze, break off from the U.S., and float to Cuba.
