October 8, 2013


I spent my entire day yesterday tucked into work. I didn't think I was going to have an interesting picture to share at all and then the sky lit up! It was truly astonishing. First there was a golden wash of light all along the street behind us and then appeared the brightest rainbow I have ever seen. It was the very first time in my life that I remember being able to see a rainbow in its entire arc, end to end. I'm taking that as incredibly auspicious sign!


I thought I would shake things up things up and do a non-packing-related image, and yesterday there were birds, birds, everywhere! Like this little guy who perched perfectly on the neighbors roof. They have lots of little puddles of water after the rain and the birds were totally batheing in it - but getting a clear shot of that was pretty challenging! Later int he day I swear I saw a bird slide down the metal roof. I hope it was okay!


It was stressful but OMG, the dishwasher is out!!!! And I made a great new connection with handy people I like. I feel like a rotten tooth was pulled from my kitchen. Ugh! Relief! Next? Find a dishwasher that fits and hire the same people to install it. Huge victory for my kitchen yesterday!!!

Jamie, that rainbow is spectacular! Wow! It looks like it's burning at the end, I have never seen that before. Like, white hot.

Oh Shannon, I can't believe a little guy slid off the roof, LOL. Birds are amazing, I am sure he was fine. Awesome photo!

That rainbow was absolutely beautiful Jamie! I'm so glad it was there to greet you as your peeked your head up from a veyr busy day :)

I'm so glad to hear your dishwasher has been usurped from the kitchen Suzie, it felt like it was the undoable task of doom, hopefully it will start to pave the way of possibilities for you.

The rainbow was really special. I'm so glad I was able to get a picture of it!

I love that bird pic, Shannon! Maybe he downed the roof like a water slide! Remember the cliff?

Oh, Suzie, that's good news. One step at a time. It's so good when something gets taken care of.
