Mt. Rainier and Lenticular Clouds - Dec. 2008 copyright: JMM

June 15, 2016

Sunset

Had another stunning sunset after an afternoon of rain.  All my friends posted pics of a gorgeous double rainbow, which. sadly, I missed.  But at least I got pics of the pretty clouds.







Life has thrown us a major curve ball and we are in massive anxiety/panic mode, so if I don't post for a bit, that's why.  I won't be going on any day trips, or my whale watch or anything until we can get this problem sorted out.  I've been throwing myself into needlework to try and keep me from curling up in a catatonic ball.  I know our track record for surviving these things is 100% but this one's really blindsided us.

  2. Gorgeous pictures (as usual). Best of luck with the curve ball. These times are not easy, but like you mentioned they are definitely survivable!

  3. Good Luck with whatever Life has thrown at you. I know how that feels -like 'who pulled the rug out from under me?' Sometimes we have to opt out of some things to get other parts of our life back into balance. Hope things improve for you. Sky pix are always nice to see, color in the evening sky gives me hope for the 'morrow.

    1. Thanks DG. We're hoping that we can get through this OK. The important thing is that we are on the same page, and that's the only way we're gonna get through this with our sanity intact.

  7. Hi JoJo,

    Focus on your dazzling sunset photos. The anxiety will pass as you visualise that moment when all is better again. Keep challenging and know I understand, my kind friend.

    3. Thank you so much Gary. I know all the cliche sayings how things happen for a reason, and when one door closes another opens blah blah blah...but we need a resolution like last week.

    1. Thank you Stephanie, I do appreciate it. There appears to be a dim light at the end of the tunnel....as long as it's not a train hopefully we'll get out of this. Tens of thousands in debt, but at least we'll be out.

  14. Did you get to see and photograph the Strawberry Moon last night? It was a bit cloudy here.
    Sorry I've not been around much. I do most stuff on my iPad, and don't have all my blogs to visit listed on there. I'm a bit scared to turn on my laptop as I know a couple of people who have been automatically "upgraded" to Windows 10 without their permission and have lost all their stuff.

    1. I took a couple of pics but they didn't come out that good. My computer guy upgraded me to 10 and I didn't lose anything, and one of my friends was auto updated and everything was fine for her as well.

  16. See what I get for concentrating on your pictures? I missed the comment about a problem having come your way. It had better go right, straight away, or I will personally beat up fate.
