Sunrise? Sunset…

Sunrise? Sunset…

OK. Last night we had the most magnificent lightning storm that I have ever seen. We sat outside and watched the sky light up to the left, right, in front of, and behind our house. It was so crazy, we were in the very middle of the storm. Of course I was freaking out asking the Big C what the chances were that we would get hit standing out in the backyard going ooooh and aaahhhh. He’s from back east so that automatically qualifies him as an expert on the subject. He was counting the seconds between thunder claps and telling me how many miles away it was and doing math while I worried about our computers, generic viagra online, the fans that were on around the baby and was it true that you couldn’t talk on the phone, and did that guy that worked at the fast food restaurant really get hit in the headset by lighting while he was passing an order out the window to a car in the drive-through lane. I was too scared to turn on the computer and look it up on snopes.

Well, the past few mornings I have been up at the crack of dawn, literally, and the sunrises have been magnificent. So last night I decided to dig out my tri-pod that I found on sale for $14.99 (cheap!!!) and set it up to get a shot of this morning’s sunrise. I figured with the freakishly weird weather, it would be a really good shot. I fiddled with all the knobs and levers and could not wait until the sun rose this morning. I overslept the sunrise by like 15 MINUTES. I have seen the sun rise just about every day this week and they have been absolutely beautiful from the vantage point of my backyard. Picture perfect… So, of course after charging up the batteries for my old Nikkon and figuring out my new tripod, I would sleep through it! erggg… The shot you see above is a sunset taken from my backyard a little while back. It’s pretty too.

I’m going back to sleep.

Arte Y Pico

I want to thank Ms. Chronic Chick of Chronic Chick Talk for this really cool award, the Arte Y Pico award!  She has a really good blog for those of you who are living with Fibromyalgia and Lupus.  She can definitely relate to all of the trials and tribulations of living with chronic illness, and she has a great positive attitude that makes her blog a good read.  Plus, she’s cool and one of my bloggy friends.  Reason enough I say to stop by and say hi to her!

OK, let me see how this works, I’m gonna copy and paste the instructions (yes, lazy I know)


1. Choose five blogs you consider deserving of this award. (Creativity, interesting material, etc.)

2. Each award includes the name of the owner of the blog and his/her link

3. Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself

4. Award winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of “Arte y Pico” blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award

I’d like to pass this on to:

There are so many great blogs out there, it was hard to choose.  I really wanted to give one to you Connie, but I see that mine was yours once removed, or something like that…

Thanks again Chick, I really do appreciate being honored 🙂
