For A Change

Just for something different, this was sunrise yesterday morning instead of my usual sundown photo.  Can't say the sky doesn't put on a spectacular show up here.

A good soaking rain followed by a couple of days of sunshine makes a terrific change in the scenery on the ground.  This photo was taken up in the corner by the water trough in the smaller goat pen.  It gives a pretty good idea of my daily hike down to (and up from) the barn.  It sure didn't take long for green to appear in the brown landscape.  I'm glad John Dear and I are at least on speaking terms because I have a feeling we're going to be spending a lot of time together come spring.

Camille called in the afternoon to tell me she was going to tackle finishing painting one side of her barn.  I was in the middle of something and couldn't go down there just then.  In a different version of Neighborhood Watch, we agreed that she would call me every half-hour and that if I didn't hear from her, I'd jump in the truck and go over, just in case she'd fallen off the ladder and needed help.  It's what we do.  Happily, she finished the last three panels without incident.  I'll be helping her today after barn chores because rain is predicted in the next week and it's a job that needs to get done.

I agree about sun rising....my window faces east...and each day it is a treat to watch the sunrise...although it is getting later and later.

I love the fact that you gals help each other and check on each other - it's what we hope all neighbors will do, but alas, sometimes neighbors don't even know each other in today's world.
