What started out as a gloomy, damp day turned out to be a sunny, pleasant one with a high in the 60s.
The weather made my adventure in unloading the car a whole lot better. I managed to get the 7-footers into the shed. The 8-footers were carted downstairs and piled into the family room. That was a feat in and of itself.
I did some things today and that felt good. I also did a little bit of car maintenance (adding oil and windshield wiper fluid) during which I was outside when the sun was going down. At first, I only glimpsed the dropping sun over the back of the fence.
The sky began to change colors as the sun burned a steady orange/red. It was really beautiful to behold.
As I wrapped up what I was doing and began to put things away, I heard a flock of geese overhead. I was able to snap them as they were trying to get back into their trademark V formation.
The sun was really freaky as it fell. It was SO big. It really did look as if I could touch it if I only walked to the end of the alley.
Something I didn't notice until I had downloaded the photos and then was doing some cropping: one of the neighborhood's menacing cats is in the lower right corner of one of the alley shots.
It was a good day on many levels.
