Sunsets and Small Talk on a Friday Morning over Coffee

I forgot my big drink mug one day this week and went to the break room and found a Ziploc container for leftovers. It seemed the perfect size to be able to make and shake my greens in. It looks horrid huh? But it tastes great. Might have some more of that this morning. Either that or the fruits.

I wanted to experiment with time lapse so I set the phone over in the office window for the morning thinking I might catch some good storm clouds. I really didn’t have a good set up as you could see the reflection of my cell phone but it turned out kinda neat actually. I didn’t have a tripod with me – I mean gosh I’m at work so no time to be taking shots, but all I did was set in the window on my iphone and do a time lapse. I made sure it didn’t have sound so no conversations recorded. I like the fact that WordPress has made it easy to add a video on here. I don’t have to put on YouTube or Vimeo first. I can upload from my photos as is. I love the clouds and I love watching them on time lapse. This was just for fun, but certainly could have been better staged.

Last night’s sunset was amazing. I should have grabbed my new camera but I didn’t want to miss the shot trying to fiddle with it. So the iphone was ready to go. Look at the colors. What really caught my attention was the color of blue sky intermingled within at times as the clouds moved.

I had company as Little Bit likes it when I sit on the porch and watch the sunset. You can even see the pink glow of the sunset on the porch in this pic.

I didn’t do anything to the photograph. It was a beautiful evening. And I’m just so surprised that I’ve not noticed the beautiful sunsets before this season of COVID. I guess we were always too busy to notice. So take THAT COVID-19. You did something besides messing everyone’s life up, which is your goal I believe.

We watched a movie last night and I had to laugh at the dogs watching with us for a while. Until they started watching me.

They are waiting for me to go to bed. They get to go out, get a treat, and snuggle. They await this nightly routine and look for signals of that part of the night to begin.

I began listening to this audio book today. I enjoy having a foodie type book to listen to, a sailing adventure, and a spiritual audio book. If you are on the computer version you can see my current selections. I need to finish We are the Russo’s but it’s on the iPad and I have to read it instead of listen. I rarely get actual reading time. I have too many hobbies. But I do want to have one reading night a week if we can tear away from the Netflix. I’ve heard this COOKED was a really good book that will change the way you look at food and food prep and that it will teach you a lot. I heard that on Eat This Not That.

Oh, and I have been trying to decide about some of my clothes. Since the Pandemic, I look at some of my Lula Roe tops and how crazy the designs are and I think “I don’t like those anymore”. I wondered if the styles were going more solids, and I was just noticing it in my subpsyche. So I checked out VOGUE. What better place for style. Although I figured it would be women having clown suits on with hair standing straight up as if it were starched rain. Yeah maybe there was some of that, but I found that pretty much anything goes for 2020 – stripes, polka dots, designs, jeans, dresses, short or long skirts, dresses, or pants. Big designs or little dainty designs, or solids. Layering was big. Big purses, little purses. Holes in the jeans or not. But mostly what I found was that they were showing pics of everyone from home doing their “stay at home” stuff. Check it out if you have time, it was fun. I’m having trouble all of a sudden adding a link so it may not work. I’m not sure why they have to change things around and make simple things difficult. lol


And if the link doesn’t work, just google VOGUE and go to their Postcards from Home section from their main page.

I have to go get ready and get to work. But the main thing we need to know today is that it is Friday. Yay. Then I can do all those things I’ve waited 2 weeks to do – that is 1/2 a month! Time. It’s just nice to have some time.

Any plans for the weekend yourself?

  4. At the beach, we always sit outside and watch the sunset. I notice the pretty colors and clouds in the sky quite often. Everyone is wearing masks here now. I went grocery shopping today and noticed they were out a lot of cleaning stuff. I think everyone is taking things more seriously now.
    Your pets are all so sweet. I like how they always look so content.
