Sunset has always been my favorite time of day, and it is by far the best time to be on the lake.
Most of the community residents are at home at that time, busily cooking dinner, helping their children with homework, or themselves returning home from work.
They are too busy to think about taking a quick trip around the lake with their kayak, canoe or sunfish that dot the beaches.
But I’m not.
And since it was a special night, the night of the blue moon, not everyone was at home.
Just as the sun was setting, the sky turned a light amber color. So pretty!
Notice anything different? You can’t tell, but it’s just near the beach.
There it is again, but this time it’s in the water.
And this time it won’t be ignored! Now it’s in the trees.
Interesting, isn’t it?
Now it’s in the sky.
I have no idea what it is, and I googled it but came up empty.
If you know, do tell!
Saturday night there was a ‘paint n sip’ in the clubhouse. I didn’t attend, but a couple of friends did.
They had a blast, and turned out some cool paintings!
I love how they’re all different, reflecting each person’s interpretation of the ocean. Class was over around 8:30, and a few of us had a bonfire on the beach. And in case you’re wondering, fire colors were added to this fire.
And a little sparkler to top off a lovely summer evening.
So tell me, are you a lake person or a beach person? Or maybe you prefer the mountains?
As for me, I want an ocean view in front, and a lake and mountains in the back. Is that asking too much?
In other news…
We cleaned up the firepit area, and we went to a junk yard to find a tire rim and got lucky. I’ve never been to a junk yard before, have you? Because if you have, why didn’t you tell me to leave my glittery sandals at home??
Remember I mentioned I was using decals in our guest bath, but they didn’t send the right quantity? That was about two months ago, and in the meantime I’ve been looking at a tub surround partially covered in the decals. They sent more, but they were a slightly different design and they wouldn’t line up, so they sent yet another batch and guess what? They’re a different design and won’t work. This project is taking forever…
I had jury duty today for a criminal case involving breaking and entering and assault with a deadly weapon. Might have been interesting. Initially, I was one of 20 people picked by the judge, but was later dismissed by the Defense Attorney. Maybe he didn’t like that my brother-in-law and his wife were in law enforcement, or maybe he didn’t like my wardrobe choices. I ask you, what’s wrong with white socks and sandals?? Is that any worse than plaid shorts and a striped shirt?
Oh wait…I had those too. :/
