… the sun’s fiery kiss to the night.
Today I think we had the nicest of all summer days so far this year. Not a cloud on the sky … and a lovely breeze.
Didn’t do anything special, a girlfriend of mine came over at noon and we sat for hours at the backyard … just talking and having our picnic.
The picnic nothing special .. just coffee and a couple of sandwiches.
In the evening enjoyed my dinner out on the balcony in gassing sunshine … after dinner, I spent a SPA hour on my feet out there and with my music on the highest volume in the kitchen.
The balcony is entered from the kitchen, so I don’t think I disturbed my neighbours that much.
When I was all done with clearing up after cooking and the pedicure, the sun was disappearing behind my neighbour’s houses into stunning beautiful clouds.
I made myself a P&T (Portwine & Tonic) to celebrate the day. Just sat and soaked up the pleasant evening that slowly started to fall.
What a fantastic ending on the most wonderful summer day.
Just one of those things… that makes life so special.
… and tomorrow we will have the grey sky back.
“The sun always shines above the clouds.”
Oh, what a lovely day you had!
Sue, it was perfect and it made me feel so good. *smile
Wow, the clouds! Beautifully captured, Vive!
Thanks, Amy … I had to use my little compact (Hulda) because Oscar isn’t feeling very good and away to be fixed (I hope). She did a good job, but the objects weren’t hard to capture.
Your magical summer nights pass far too quickly, but how lovely for the light to stay on for so long . . . you hit the right note with the Chopin . . . . hope the sleep following came full and sweet . . .
Eha, one of my favourite piano piece … and especially when Chad Lawson is playing it. Thank,s the night has been calm … could have been sweeter. *smile
Definitely a fabulous summers day with a stunning summers sky!
Janaline, yes it was a perfect summer day … I don’t like mine too hot and I want a nice breeze. The evening was soft and gentle. A hearty thank you.
