Perfect Evening Light

sunset 004


We have had solid rain for two days and I have been loving it.  I guess it reminds me of growing up in Seattle.  I have been getting lots of rest, reading, napping, doing puzzles, drinking herbal teas….just healing my body.

We haven’t seen the sun in awhile and when it broke out of the clouds, just at sunset….it was gorgeous.

I wish these pictures could depict the real color and depth but it never does.

All the while, the girls were settling down for the night, in the Chicken Mansion.
