Yesterday we went to middle daughter’s house for the family feast. Lots of family was there and nine year old Amanda took charge of the camera and she kept clicking away all day. The day is well documented: the basketball games on the driveway, dodgeball (?) on the lawn, chatting on the deck, cooking in the kitchen, eating in the dining room, football on the living room TV and Bibi, the French bulldog everywhere.
The day was mild which allowed for those outdoor activities, and the sky was a blissful blue. Amanda was fascinated by the sky and, among other views, captured these geese flying south.
But all festivities must end. We drove home in the dark to a cold house and dived into our cold bed.
This morning, on Skywatch Friday, the sky was gray, perfectly suited to the pleasures of post-holiday quiet. This is the view my husband enjoys and treasures everyday from his special chair. The arbor was specifically made tall to encompass as much sky view as possible, above the fields and tree line.
For the photo I sat on Henry’s chair and lined up the slider panels with the wisteria growing up the arbor support, as requested by a reader. Lots more sky views at Skywatch Friday.
