We have been sick over here on the plains for a few days. My husband was hit with it much worse than I. He is now recovering and feeling more like himself, thank God. He got it pretty good and there were moments when I suggested we go to the hospital but he did not want to do that. I didn’t hear any “oinking” so I am pretty sure it wasn’t the Swine, although there are several cases of it here in Maine. There are 5 that are quite close by, one being diagnosed just yesterday.
It has been raining for a few days and kind of dismal. Today it is so nice to see the sun again for however long it may last. Mother’s Day is upon us and I am not sure what I am doing at this point. My plans were to go into Portland and my kids were taking me out to breakfast. Now, they may be coming out here to visit. Either way, it is important for me to see them that day and that’s all that matters I guess. It’ll be fun.
The other night, as we were pulling into our driveway, something caught my eye, from across the plains in our back yard. My first thought was that it was a forest fire, and then I realized it was a beautiful sunset. It lit up the horizon with many beautiful colors, it was spectacular! I ran inside and snapped some photos. For some reason they came out quite blurry but you get the idea. Either we need a new camera or a new camera person!
The sun was setting so I had to snap fast.
The colors were beyond what I have seen in my backyard before. I could not stop looking at it. Amazing.
It’s like something you expect to see in Hawaii. Then ,as I was walking back to the house I looked to the south and caught another beautiful sight….a gorgeous moon peeking through the bluest clouds. Again, my pictures are not that good and are blurry for some reason?
And then it began to get dark enough so I could not see much and I tried to snap a couple more…..
No, that moon is not taking off….that is me apparently not being able to steady the camera! The difference in the darkness of the blue sky is dramatic in just those few minutes between pictures. Now I cannot look at a sky like that and not believe that there is a power greater than me at work here. What a work of art that is!
