At day's end....

My baby wore me out today....we were out of sync. At least that is the excuse I am giving. I actually think she is going through a growing spurt. She just wants to eat all the time....but at least it is that instead of one not hungry.
Roger noticed the sunset last night, after it was too late to even thinking about going any where it would be pretty. I made up my mind to try to watch tonight to see what it was going to be like. Though in all honesty, you can almost always count on a beautiful sunset here.
I glanced out once when it was still to early to think about leaving...then I happened to think and glance later and it was just too much to resist. There was a storm line off to the north and west.
I told Roger I was going--did he want to go. Who can resist a run through the strip pits. I still did not capture the glory of it all, but maybe this will give you an inkling of what it was like. I wish I had taken time and got my tripod out and taken a series of photos till I could stitch them together for a panoramic shot. We were running out of time, though, and I wanted to make it to several spots to see the view...to bad I couldn't be in two places at once.

I am wondering if Lorelei is giving her mom a break tonight. She took three naps today but not a single one of them was over 30 minutes. She had also gotten her mom up at 3:30 this morn, and again at 5:30....so she should be worn out. She sure had her moments today--today was the day that she wanted to watch her Grandpa a lot. He got lots and lots of big smiles.

I also put on the Barney DVD I got for her for the first time and she really got animated watching it. She keeps us laughing so much of the time.

Wonderful skies! Miss Lorelei below does not look like her usual smiling self in that top photo! What a pout!

Yes, the skies do look quite pretty and with the big heavy dark clouds, it's as if they will drop down any moment and cover the area! That second picture sends shivers up my spine... whoa... that's terrific!

Hugs♥

Rose: What beautiful captures of the sky. I see a lot of skies because of Sky Watch so I can say this ranks up with the best.
You make beautiful bird captures and can only take what is in front of you.

Great storm shots! Those are something I haven't tried yet -- but your shots are inspiring me to give it a go!
