June's Last Sunset

Orange and purple




We've had some wonderfully cool weather for a few days. Last night, the temperatures were in the upper 50s. We slept with the windows open, and I actually got cold enough to pull the blanket over me.

The temperatures are supposed to be a little higher today, but just in the 80s. In fact, we are supposed to stay in the 80s for the next week. I'm sure this won't last, but for now, I'm loving it.

Interesting that you had such a pretty sunset last night...I went out back with my camera for the sunset at at my house it was clear! Not a cloud in the sky...

I took this picture when it was almost dark -- about 8:45 or maybe even later. I was surprised to see such a dramatic sunset, too. I didn't notice many clouds when I was driving home from Greenville yesterday evening. Then, I stopped at a neighbor's house for about an hour, and when I came out, this sunset was conducting its grand finale.

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)
