It's a Bluebird Day with a SUNDOG!!!



B: Patrick's car is stuck at work.  It won't go.
G: Emma is coming home tonight
B: Patrick lost his keys while trying to fix the car last night.
G: I dropped off an extra key at his work this morning and got to see my very first Sundog!
B: It is -9 degrees this morning.
G: The sun is shining
B: It is -9 degrees this morning
G: SUNDOG


B is for bad.
G is for good.


Oh life.  You are a crazy roller coaster of pain and delight.

I am thankful for eyes to see and ears to hear the good parts.

Wishing you the same.



And in the end I think I've learned the final lesson from my travels in time; and I've even gone one step further than my father did: The truth is I now don't travel back at all, not even for the day, I just try to live every day as if I've deliberately come back to this one day, to enjoy it, as if it was the full final day of my extraordinary, ordinary life.~About Time

 Life's a mixed bag, no matter who you are.~About Time




SUNDOG!!! My first. So exciting!!!


Encourage one another,
Donna

  1. Oh, I want to see that movie. I love the other movies that fella has done (Curtis?)

    Yay for a visit from Emma.

    I generally try to look on the bright side - and it seems like that's easy to do today :-)

  3. About the movie About Time. It's okay. It's slow. Sweet moments. A little confusing....as the Time travel thing generally makes me go blonde....but I liked the ending and a few of the quotes and sentiments.

  4. You almost inspire me to get out of the house and look for a Sundog in our cold weather. Almost. My job today is to keep the wood stove full and sort through the paperwork on my desk.

    I copied a quote from Monuments Men last night about loveliness showing through the rubble and wreck. Your B and G's reminded me of it.

    Happy Thursday!

    Oh, how cool is that? I don't think I've ever seen a sundog.

    I want to see that movie. I really like the quotes.

    Hooray for the G's!

    1. We had sun dogs here in Kansas yesterday as well. Here is some info from my US National Weather Service Topeka FB page "Northeast Kansas experienced a rather rare event in addition to the abundant snowfall! If you were brave enough to venture outside this morning, you may have seen a pair of Sun Dogs on each side of the rising sun, or scientifically referred to as parhelion. It is caused by refraction in hexagonal crystals that are sinking with their principal axes in the vertical which causes the sunlight to be refracted horizontally. If the ice crystals are randomly oriented, a complete arc around the sun is possible. They are often associated with high cirrus clouds or very cold conditions. When the sun is on the horizon, the arc associated with the parhelion is 22 degrees but can expand once the sun elevation climbs to 60 degrees."

      When I looked at the picture, I thought it looked like a bun with a hot dog inside. Good to know the real meaning of sundog. jep

    Hi to Emma and hope it warms up for you. I didn't know what a sundog was either, but what a pretty capture!

    And it's "About Time" I saw that movie. Hehe. :)

  10. Sun dogs always remind me of my dad. He had some weather training in the military way back when…and taught me about them. We had some pretty looking clouds yesterday, sort of rainbow shimmers in them. I think it must have been ice crystals.

  11. I learned something new today! I did not know those little rainbows were called sundogs. I have seen them before - magical! What a lovely photo.

  13. The things I would never know without you, Miz Boo. Bluebird Days and Sundogs. I think there is a song or a book title in there somewhere. Anita?

    All I know is that it is raining here today and that is a very, very, VERY good thing.

    Blessings on the QLCS today,

    I would appreciate the prayers of the Quiet Life crew for a mom from my church. Her name is Cheryl and for the past 9 months she has been carrying a very sick little girl. They had been told at around 4 months that baby Hope was not developing correctly. Each month has brought worse news. They were warned that baby Hope would not survive long. Today they delivered baby Hope via C-section. She lived for about an our and a half. She was able to be a liver cell doner that will help 3 other babies. I can't imagine how hard this is for the family. They have a strong faith but I know they could use the prayers. They also have a 2 year old daughter. Thank you everyone.

      Dear God, please bless Cheryl and her family and the families of those children who received liver transplants. We pray for your healing grace to enfold and comfort them all and know you are welcoming a new little angel into Heaven. Amen

      You are a dear friend to ask for prayers Laurie. Praying God will direct you in ways that you can be there for Cheryl at this time and bless you and your family, too. love and prayers, jep
