Fire and rainPosted: January 30, 2013
Yesterday’s sunset was incredible. The beauty was not in the sky as much as it was in the meadows and the trees, golden raindrops shimmering from branches and leaves, and dried grasses and flowers.
We all know what happens when the sun comes out as the rain pours down.
I do wish I could capture these better. I must be missing something. I just had a quick look via a Google search. A polarizing filter, so it is written, would be helpful.
Today is gray and blustery and rainy. We had some fairly strong storms move through this morning. Fast and strong. I think if you had blinked, you might have missed them. Today’s warmth will be blown east with the wind, and tomorrow we’ll be back in the 20’s for highs again. Cold, it seems to me, is much easier to get used to when it sticks around for a while. When it blows warm and cold as it has been, the cold can feel brutal. I’ve heard that we should get used to it because this is likely the new normal.
It’s bowling night. I am, as usual, looking forward to it. I can’t believe how much fun I’ve been having in spite of the lack of any real improvement. I don’t think I’ll ever get beyond the Lousy Bowler’s League, but I don’t care. It’s entertaining and just plain fun. M and I pay extra each week towards bowling balls that we’ll get at the end of the season, but are giving some thought to buying the balls soon so we can use them sooner rather than later.
The bowling alley has a pretty good racket going with the Lousy Bowler’s League. At the very least, most people end up buying their own shoes since it will end up costing more to rent shoes each week. When we finish the season, we’ll all have bowling shoes and some of us will have our own bowling balls, and that translates into more business for the bowling alley because, of course, we’ll go back and play just to use our shoes and bowling balls.
That seems to be it from the Bogs for today. Truthfully, I’m struggling with writing blog posts lately. I know why that is, but I can’t explain it very well. Perhaps tomorrow will be better, and the words will flow.
Thank you for stopping by. Wishing you a delightful day, evening, night… whenever and wherever you are on the spectrum of time. 🙂
