Evening comes so early it is still afternoon.
Chance and I sat out long before supper and watched the sunset through the trees. Ribbons of pink mingled with the blue sky. The day started out dreary and cloudy but then the sun broke through the clouds! It was just about 60 F or 15C eh! It was almost summer like.
We could hear Mason and Anna next door enjoying the last of the day. The childhood chatter mingled with the noise from the highway. Noise easily filters through the naked trees…cars slowing for the corner and then racing down the road for two miles before the next corner.
We checked the placement of the Snowstick for 2015-2016. Ready, set don’t snow yet!
I threw the ball for Chance until he was tired. Then we settled down on the patio to watch the solar lights come on slowly one by one…one flickers and has been flickering nightly for about 20 minutes and then it just goes out. Have you ever tried to take apart one of those little suckers…other than a pinched wire they somehow get water inside and won’t work after that….at least that is my diagnosis.
I might put a couple of glass flowers out by that wagon wheel…no one should be flinging snow in that direction. I will have to make a decision soon…maybe tomorrow.
