Ephemeral Blue

It's rained for days. Thursday night after the Christmas parade, it began and it's only stopped to catch it's breath a time or two.

Jilda's started painting Christmas cards right after coffee this morning. She stopped long enough for us to walk the dogs. 

She slipped on her raincoat, but the skies had lightened, and by the second lap, the rain had stopped. The gray clouds moved off to the east. I smiled.

She was letting Taz the Wonder Yorkie find a place to do her business so I sat on the thinking bench and waited. 

I leaned back and snapped a picture of the sky. 

When Jilda and Taz walked up to me she said, "Don't get your hopes up. The rain is not finished."

I doubted it. But this evening as we left to go to the office Christmas party, it was pouring rain.

Ephemeral Blue


  1. That is a truly glorious sky - however shortlived it was.

  2. Sunday morning, and its the first time Ive seen sun in a week.
    The rain has been somthing else this year. I hope next year is a little drier.

  3. A beautiful sky. I hope you get some sunshiny days soon. It's beautiful here today and we had a little covering of frost on the trees this morning. Very pretty sight.

    Hugs, Julia
