Almost Wordless Wednesday: Sunshine and Iridescence

As promised by the weather predictors the sun came out on Monday. It made us so happy. We took our weary bones out for a three-mile walk to celebrate. The sun shined all day on Tuesday as well. We celebrated with a five mile walk. Then, a few clouds came by and painted the sky in iridescent colors for us. We rejoiced. We're really not that hard to please.

Roger sez: we are easily amused.

  1. Lucky Robin and Roger! We woke up to snow and the sounds of the neighbourhood furiously clearing footpaths and cars. Bedlam.

  2. Wonderful to have a few days of sun, between rain/sleet/snow and worries about ice. But it stayed cold here. Love the iridescence.

    1. CCorax-- That's how I feel about iridescent clouds. No matter how many times I see a formation, my heart soars to meet it.

  5. How lucky you are to experience the sun at long last and to be able to walk your miles. And how lucky to be easily entertained, to take delight in what is around you, the natural world and the feeling in your muscles and bones that comes from a good stretch of sidewalks and trails. Have a lovely Wednesday!

    1. Tara-- That's how we felt when we saw the sun, the light through the windows, the shadows of the palm plant on the wall. And then to go for long walks, just to stretch our old bodies... it was grand!

    2. Oh, I think it's normal for where I live. We're at about 5,000 feet so it's not as warm as Phoenix, Tucson and Yuma.

  8. I'd be easily amused by that iridescence as well. We went from single digit temps to 50 and raining in the span of two days. Typical NJ. If you don't like the weather, wait five minutes.

    1. Sharon-- I remember really cold New Jersey winters. I think it's why my parents decided to move to California in 1970. Today we have fog. I think we're going to have to wait more than five minutes for this to burn off. Sigh.

  12. And I too am easily amused which is why I so enjoy the view outside our living room windows which show part of the nashua River. Simple amusements are the best and no cost.
