Can you believe it, I took a day off for myself. My Michigan sister was at the farm, so, of course that warranted a fine visit. It's always good to get my Cher Fix.
A tomato sandwich later, and I was at the cabin gazing at the sky, reading a couple old magazines, smelling fall in the air.
A Mama Robin was hopping along, following her young one, teaching it how to forage for itself, as it searched for food.
The afternoon before, the sky quickly darkened but only for about 10 minutes. Within that time, it rained, hailed and then
a wide but pale rainbow appeared in the Eastern Sky...a promise. It left the air cooled but still so humid that it lasted the night and next day...
At least back at the cabin, it felt 10 degrees cooler with a slight breeze through morning intermittent showers. Even the little Red Squirrel was all a-chatter about the weather, or was he reminding me that I should be storing nuts and seeds for the anticipated long winter days.
As I checked on the pumpkin patch to see if I could cut any yet,
in flew a beautiful Great Spangled Fritillary. They mainly feed on Violets at night so I was so surprised to see this one feeding in the pumpkin patch in the middle of the day.
The evening sky was red last night so I was hoping for the same thing this evening. It did not happen. I did get some pretty cool sunsets to share. This is the neighbors barn toward town.
the pink sky over the end of our small field,
the reflection of the mill yard across from Hines Park as the sun quickly lowered. I love the sunsets, no matter where or when. I still wish I had not missed the Red Sun the night before...my brother saw it and said it was one of the finer things in life, but so very weird. Did any of you see the red sunset? If you have pictures of it, please do share.
Thanks for stopping by in your busy day to read this laid-back day of mine. Upon re-reading, I fell asleep. I hope you didn't mind.
Have a day full of blessings...
