Orange and Purple

A February sunset in Christian County, KY



February sunsetOur sunset a few days ago

I don't think there will be much of a sunset today. The weather is going to be wet and gray all day. Fortunately, we're a little south of the dividing line between freezing rain and ordinary rain. Some of the counties around us closed school today due to icy roads, but Christian County's roads were clear.

What a beautiful picture. I am so happy to feel re-connected to Hoptown.

Hi, Beth. Thanks for stopping in. It was a beautiful sunset. I tried several times to photograph it as I drove home from work, but this was the only picture that turned out very well.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
