OT: Mother Nature Puts on a Show


The weather systems are moving. I can feel it in my connective tissues. Well, in my bones, too, as far as my osteoarthritis is concerned. It’s the FMS that really makes me ache tonight.

Still, I am content and wearing a smile on my face.

I  will see Benny again this weekend. I’ve missed him and it seems he has missed me.  If all goes well, we’ll have a few days together in this lovely part of the world. And maybe we’ll get to enjoy the sort of show only Mother Nature can put on . . . such as this spectacular sunset tonight.

Although it will be nice to get back home (be it ever so humble, there is no place quite like it), I will miss the ever-changing beauty of the sky and the sea just outside the door.  I think Monsieur Monet would know just how I feel . . .

I'm an LA native--Lower Alabama, that is. My husband of more than 30 years and I live here on a portion of my family's former farm with two gorgeous calicos and a handsome GSD mix. My background is art education, and over the years I've been a teacher, department store photographer, sales associate and a journalist. My husband, his business partner and I have Pecan Ridge Productions, a video production company, for which I shoot & edit video and stills and manage marketing. I also still write part-time for the local paper. I love movies, music, art, photography and books, and my tastes in all of them are eclectic.

  1. Wow!! You really did get a marvelous show. That’s glorious. And naturally, you and Benny miss each other. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and a good trip home together.

  2. Wow, beautiful! We have very heavy cloud cover and the wind started to blow yesterday! Look out, Sandy’s on her way and she’s a very unpredictable lady. Our forecast has changes several times over the last few days. All I know is that it’s predicted to hit a huge and very populated area. It’s suppose to stretch from my parents in Western Pennsylvania to my place in Southern Virginia! I hope everyone in her path is safe and prepared!

    • If there is any “good” aspect of hurricanes, it is that they do give you some opportunity to prepare in advance and I do hope everyone makes a concerted effort to get ready. I’ve been thinking of those who are possibly in the path and hoping and praying for the best outcome. Everyone, take care.

  3. The colors of the Gulf are amazing and ever changing. Reminds me of Richard’s eyes that go from blue to silvery and almost to green depending on the lighting and his mood.

    Weather and FMS do not play well together. I have it too and I’m in Sandy’s path. I will be limping when the storm gets closer. Today I have to move things in the basement away from the side that flooded once and might again. I have some supplies and probably should get more. With luck we won’t get hit square. I live on the west side of a mountain and that protected me last time. I hope it does this time as well.

    • Yes, the Gulf is a chameleon in much the same way our lovely Richard is. 😀 His eyes turn a true green in the desert scenes of Strike Back. And even tan in a few scenes–it’s amazing. I have never seen a more captivating pair of eyes than his.
      I didn’t rest well at all last night and didn’t get up this morning until close to 9 and was moving slowly. I can truly feel for those of you suffering from FMS who are dealing with Sandy’s approach. Gentle hugs, as I know how overly vigorous ones can be downright painful. I wish you all the best, JaneG, and keep us posted as you are able to do so.
