Sunset View from Back Patio

Tonight, when Jeff put Miki out back for a bit, he said he thought the sunset might be pretty tonight. I grabbed my camera and we sat out back for a bit, and were rewarded with this lovely sight. I feel so incredibly lucky and fortunate to be living the life I have right now.
On a separate note, I got the latest issue of Cloth, Paper, Scissors yesterday, and as I was relaxing and enjoying the artwork in it, I turned the page....and there was my art work! Wow! I had submitted something a few months ago in response to a readers' challenge, and mine was one of the (relatively) few they published. I'm still excited!
Enjoy this photo and your life!

Isn't the sky just magnificent?? This is "home" to me. It's been a crazy week and a half - visiting Chicago seeing family and friends last weekend, and then a busy, busy week at work, with a friend in town because of what was going on at work. I felt like I was just starting to get back to normal when I looked up and saw this view and this sky. Ahhhh.....home. Yes, I am meant to live here.

Good Morning!

Good morning! I've been meaning to photograph this little deserted cabin along the road not far from our house for a while. Today ended up being the day. I got up just as dawn was arriving, and got there for the wonderful sunrise glow.

I then walked around to the other side of it and took this image with more of the sun warming the walls of the cabin, but still with the cool sky behind it. Kind of a mix of warmth and coolness which perfectly fit the day.

On this wonderful morning, isn't it great just to be alive? Yes!!
