The weather has been lovely the past two weeks. Warm and sunny. Wonderfully clear night skies-great for viewing Jupiter, Mars, Saturn and of course the moon. A lunar eclipse is coming on Tuesday. I’m really hoping that the weathermen are incorrect and the skies will be clear that evening. You can check out the lineup of Jupiter, the moon, Mars and Saturn after 10:30pm daylight savings time for the east coast. I love looking at them!

Monday is my Dad’s birthday. He would have turned 80 this year. I’m trying to think of something to do that day to commentate his life. I’ve been thinking about doing eighty random acts of kindness for a week. My dad had his faults as we all do but as time has passed I find it easier to remember the good and acknowledge the bumpy times but not dwell on them. I learned a lot from my dad in the twenty four he was alive for my life. Lately I have found that I have learned a lot from my Mom too but I take the time to tell her. I value the fact she is healthy, spunky and we can talk.

The photos I have chosen for this post include a ewe with her lambs and some of my favorite flowers that I have photographed over the past week. As you can tell I love yellow! I miss being able to paint my place the colors I would like but most landlords are not crazy about tenants painting their places. I think it is one of the reasons I have so much artwork. Covers the wall color.

I am looking forward to a trip to Assateague Island tomorrow. A good friend and myself are headed down there for the day. It supposed to be sunny and warm so I’m thinking the ponies will not outnumber the people tomorrow as they did on our last visit in November. I hope to see the ponies and look forward to exploring another section of the Island.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend , that the weather is good where you are and as always thank you for stopping by!

    Can you send some of those flowers my way? The weather is turning temporarily nice (light snow forecast for Tuesday but then back to normal spring I hope) and I am keeping an eye on the daffodils that I can finally see now that the mountains of snow are gone. The daffys are trying really hard to bloom–maybe in the next week?

    Your post today was so calming to me, Becca. The pics were great and, being a lover of the night sky myself, I’m always happy to get tidbits!
    I’m jealous of your heading to Assateague. It’s the one place I can go to in my head and get clear. Have a great time, and thanks for writing your blog. I really love it!

    Beautiful photos! We’ve been having beautiful weather all week, but tomorrow if predictions are right, 5 to 10 inches of snow! How I hope they are wrong, but if it is as cold as it is supposed to get the snow will make a good cover for all the green coming up already! We’ll see what the morning brings! Enjoy your Sunday!

Rising Over the Smoke

Cleanse ye your eyes, so that ye behold no man 
as different from yourselves.... 
See ye no strangers; rather see all men as friends, 
 
for love and unity come hard 
 when ye fix your gaze on otherness. ~Baha'i
