So. Last night Dayle read online that the moon was right next to Venus. WELL. You know I had to go out and see what kind of amazing spectacle I would see in the sky. My friends, there was no moon to be seen at all. Not a sliver, nothing. But I did enjoy being out on the deck in the warmth of a summer night. I snapped a photo of the back of the house lit within. Do you love seeing homes lit at night? I do.
We've got the gazebo lights on a photo cell timer so it's neat to see when they automatically pop on when dusk falls.
Dayle has all the pond lights going and they also come on at dusk.
My chair ready for a night-time visit. We had a BBQ on Saturday, a friend of our sons came and brought her little girl and met us for the first time. We all got a kick out of the 2 and a half year girl who loved the dogs and playing with our grandsons. Shawn, our older son, did the BBQing of the chicken and made macaroni and cheese, baked beans and potato salad.
Earlier in the day I noticed a pot of geraniums that Dayle had wintered over - it was a magenta colored flower, and poof, out of nowhere there was another bright orange-y red flower blooming in the same pot. Hmm.. how did that happen?
A quick snap of the flower basket.
I just talked to my daughter Amy and we might be going to see Lake Erie, one of the Great Lakes, while I'm there visiting. She said there is a lighthouse there and islands to visit. That's an exciting idea! Two weeks until departure! What are you up to this week? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
