Sky Blanket

There’s a blanket in the sky.  At the bottom lies the sun ready to rise and shine.

Solar Eclipse 2017

This is what happened when I aimed a colander toward the sun during today’s total eclipse across America.

Baby crescent moons!

I took this picture with my iPhone 7. Using my solar eclipse glasses as a shield for my phone lens, I was able to capture the eclipse as I saw it through my glasses.

Today was so cool.

I think I’m hooked on eclipses now.

Texas 2024. On my eclipse calendar now.

Happy Saturday

Good Morning

No filter. 

What you see is what you get. 

Happy Friday!

This is a familiar site in my town.  And I don’t live in Arizona or Colorado.IMG 4359This is Cary, North Carolina: lots of clay and deep blue skies.


And home to many bulldozers.giant-development-tractor.jpg

Upon first glance, it looks like a mountain.  I’ve never been to Mount Rushmore, but I think there’s a strangle resemblance.

And here is Cary Mountain: IMG 4358Instead of rock (and presidents), we have clay.  Seems almost as tough.

It’s been clawed by a giant bulldozers, yet it stands tall and proud.IMG 4357One day soon, this hill will be gone and a road will appear.

One claw at a time.IMG_4353



Not all cloudy skies are dreary.

When you haven’t seen a blue sky in a couple weeks, and then you wake up to the most amazing display of deep blue, crisp white clouds and a big ball of sunshine, gratitude for such beauty dominates your soul.

Especially when you’re stuck in carpool.

And you make the three separate trips to three separate schools.
