Brandy Day141: Don’t Take What You Don’t Need….

image

A change in the weather.  Some gnarly clouds rolled through tonight. Thunderstorms remind me of so much. I love the smell of rain, the roll of thunder, the surprise of lightning, the ominous look the clouds hold and the breathe taking sky it creates after the madness. It is all simply so easing and beautiful.
Every year deadly storms rip through small towns or big cities. Lives are randomly chosen and lost. For those, we remember.

Chandler Day 49: A Beautiful Day

DSC01589Today was a beautiful day. It got up to about 45 degrees and it felt amazing out. And because my afternoon class got canceled I was able to be outside. I went to Holliday Park and took a nice walk there and then moved onto the Ecolab here at Marian. I was able to go birding there. It felt great to get back outside and start birding again. It had been almost fourth months since I last went birding, or even hiking for that matter. The sun was shining, the Cardinals and Chickadees were calling, and the sky was clear. I found some good birds and just as I was ending my hike I found this guy. He was climbing around a tree and playing in the melting snow, happy for the warm weather. He let me get a few shots and then went on his way. It was a nice end to a beautiful day outside.
