Sunrise, Clouds, and Planes

Early morning clouds
 Pink clouds to the west.
 7:10 a.m. Plane leaving (and clouds about).
 Straight up overhead clouds.
 7:20 Plane around the clouds.
 Sunrise. . . Sun rays.
 7:45 Plane around clouds.
 Sunrise is so beautiful amongst the clouds.
 I hear you . . . .
 . . .and I see you.
You will recognize your own path when you come upon it, because you will suddenly have all the energy and imagination you will ever need. Jerry Gillis

Moon and clouds

Moon 82 percent full last night.
 Clouds overtake it.
 Trying to come back out.
 Going in and out of the clouds all evening.

Clouds and some Blue Sky

Looking east lots of clouds.
 Looking west more clouds.
This will keep us warm (if they stay around) tonight. It has been 47-52 at night and barely 70 (67 yesterday).  I think it will be warming up some.
Reading THE BOOKSELLER by Mark Pryor (his first in the Hugo Marston series). I prefer to read an author's first book all the way through.
 I try to leave out the parts that people skip. ~ Elmore Leonard

Ibis in the Backyard

 I saw them fly in and hurried to take the picture.
 They are getting the bugs.
 We had a bit of rain. . . .
 . . . .however, they do this after grass cutting too.
Close up.
If you don't know what you want, you probably won't get it.

Blue Sky, Cloud, Shadows and Birds

Perhaps a few clouds in the south!
 Two hawks in the East.
 Blue sky and one hawk in the West.
 Shadows (you know I love shadows and reflections).
 The two trees causing the two shadows.
 Oh, Wait. . . . .ONE lonely cloud in the North Bright Blue Sky.
One of my favorite authors quote. . .Bird By Bird my favorite and the first book I read that showed me the how/why I could write.
Oh My God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75 and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen. ~ Anne Lamott

Clouds and Blue Sky no astroid seen

North, South, West, East

Not knowing which direction or where, I didn't see the Astroid from any direction.
 What is the point of being alive if you don’t at least try to do something remarkable? ~ John Green

Nature. . . .Cactus

Large Blue Agave Cactus Plant

My girlfriend's husband has a huge backyard full of great plants, water, flowers, lights. This cactus is in his front yard. He definitely has a green thumb.  He could be a nursery/plant/decor consultant very easily.
The soul becomes dyed with the color of thoughts. ~ Marcus Aurelius

Sunrise, Clouds, Plane and Squirrel

Sunrise gave a bit of color this morning. Very Very windy.
 Clouds are beginning to fade it out and . . .
 . . .cover it over. . .just a bit of pink left.
 Storm coming from northwest and clouds are rolling here.
 Plane amongst the clouds.
 Bit of sunlight.
 Squirrel getting ready of impending cold fronts. . . 40s.
 A poser.
 Another posed pic.
Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible. ~ Francis of Assisi

Plane, Clouds, and Moon

Plane going overhead
 Clouds . . . after days of mostly cloudy, this is nice.
 Moon, I was out at the same time. . .for once.
 Moon, Trees and flag. . . late night shot.
Artists and writers give you what you didn’t know you wanted!

National Squirrel Appreciation Day

I took these yesterday.
 He's taking his nut back to the tree 'house?'
I took these yesterday without knowing today is their day.
People generally see what they look for, and hear what they listen for. ~ Harper Lee

Shopping, Clouds and Birds. . . Flowers

Sun is snoozing. . .lots of clouds.
 70 percent off. . .I found a marvelous black church dress.
 Fresh Market looks like this above their foods.
Milk is $2.99 a gallon on Tuesdays this month.
 When I arrived home, the birds were circling. . .
 It was suppose to rain (dry season remember) but it didn't.
 Neighbor planted her beautiful Poinsettias.
 Another neighbor has beautiful Hibiscus.
You don’t remember what happened. What you remember becomes what happened. ~ John Green
