East of the Sun and West of the moon...

We ran around this morn in Terre Haute...at the time we came home, I just did not want to go in another store...much less a Super Walmart.  Yet, this evening, I got to thinking I would like to go and get it done and not have to go tomorrow or the next day...so Roger said he was willing...
The sky was wonderful....so we decided to do a little cloud/sunset chasing on the way.

You might have to enlarge this to see the moon peeping out.
so this was in the east....(and it is East of the sun)
And there was the wonderful sunset, that is West of the moon...
but not until I was going through the pictures and seen this particular shot of the awesome cloud did I think of that old fairytale, East of the Sun and West of the Moon.

That was my favorite fairytale of all time when I was a child.  I read it more than any other.  And a couple years ago, my sister-in-law/BFF got me a copy of it.  Now I read it to Lorelei sometimes when she is here.

Just wondering, what is the childhood story that sticks in your mind.  This is not the only one for me...I just happened to have an old schoolbook that had it in it.

I loved The Little Red Hen, The Little Engine that Could, plus one or two that I don't recall  their title.  And my favorite poem of all time when I was little was Little Boy Blue!

The Little Engine That Could was my son's favorite. If I had a nickel for every time I read it to him, I'd be a wealthy man.

You made good use of the trip to get some fine clouds and sun pictures. That thunderhead is awesome and it speaks to updrafts and violent winds inside.

That cloud is spectacular, and so is the moon! And a gorgeous yellow sunset. My favorite was Little Boy Blue, the one where the little boy dies...do I have the right name? But I cried whenever someone read it to me.

Lovely photos, Rose.

My favorite fairy tale was "Elsie Piddock Skips in her Sleep" by Eleanor Farjeon, who also happened to write the lyrics for "Morning Has Broken".

Love the cloud shots and I do see the Moon peeking out. Great shots.
I liked all those stories too. My favorite one--can't remember the name right now---but it was about a pup who got sruck under the fence because he liked to get out and explore. I can see the pic on the front of the book. It was a Little Golden Book. I used to have a zillion LGBs I read to my girls. And I loved Robert Louis Stevenson poetry specially The Swing.
I could go on because I love to read and I love books and hope I instilled that in my children.
