Well, now it's cooling off. I opened my west windows and my east sliding doors when I arrived home. There was a terrific wind that whistled through my screens and blew the curtains around. It was very comfortable indoors and I enjoyed just listening to the wind and putting my feet up for a while.
Now the cool fresh evening breeze is rustling the grass outside and the birds are singing their evening songs. Isn't it wonderful how they seem to have a special song in the early morning and again in the evening?
I took this photo this morning while the robins sang joyfully.
This was a view of the evening shadows and sunlight.
After a long hot day the grass blowing in the evening breeze looks so enticing. Do you ever feel like you'd like to just sit down in the tall grass and enjoy some solitude while it blows around over your head? Why don't we do this when the urge strikes? (Because our neighbors would think we were crazy, that's why. If I lived further out in the country I might just do it! Well, woodticks might factor into it, too.)
Today was a pretty good day. I spent a lot of time worrying during the night hours, thinking it would be the hardest day ever because of the way workers were scheduled. Instead, God changed my perspective. He provided and things went more smoothly than usual. Thank you, Lord! (At 1:30 in the morning I woke up and had to close the window. The loons were making so much noise on a nearby lake, they weren't helping me to get back to sleep! But I do love the variety of calls they make.)
Well, I finally finished another two page spread in my Sketchbook Project sketchbook. I still have some captioning to do, but here's the jist of it.
It's a beautiful evening. I think I'll go enjoy it some more. I spent a few minutes outside in my deck chair eating a banana split of sorts, enjoying the fresh breezes. I tossed a lump of chocolate ice cream to my barn cat friend and he enjoyed it. (Yes, MK, I'm grazing again! Wish I could enjoy grazing on fruits and veggies instead of ice cream!)
Hope you're enjoying your summer days. Shalom, friends.
