Gifts of the Day

Big fluffy clouds are such a welcome sight around here since we don't get them during the hot summer months.

High humidity, however, is not a good thing when you are trying to capture the setting sun. My camera immediately fogged over the minute I walked outside this evening.

Hubby thinks I am nuts running out to the balcony morning, noon and night with camera in hand. But all those clouds give the sun's rays something to bounce off of so there is always such a lovely glow in the sky just before dusk. I told him I am enjoying God's gifts and being grateful.

Certain thoughts are prayers. There are moments when, whatever be the attitude of the body, the soul is on its knees. ~Victor Hugo

Jingles is enjoying the change in the weather too.

Half the time I can't even get her out of that dang pot. (My poor moss roses.)

I hope that you are enjoying lovely weather and a beautiful day in your little corner of the world. Friendship blessings, Tammy

Our cat Tuki spent some time in my pot of shamrock plants last week -- fortunately, they didn't get squashed.

Cute photo of Jingles peering through the foliage. :)

Hi Tammy...Loved your cloud pictures. It was, indeed, a most beautiful Sunday. We attended a Forest Festival and it was great. Loved seeing the apple butter cooking demonstration.

Take care and keep cool Susan from

I do the same thing, go out to catch the moment and the lens will fog up! Love your sunset, very nice!

Jingles is some cute cat, very expressive!

I can't imagine that much humidity! We live where there's signle-digit humidity all. the. time. But that's really not a good thing either..

Jingles is just a cute as can him (her?) in the pot. Looks soo restful.

Dearest Tammy,

Your pictures are worth all the effort; they're so beautiful! Oh, Jingles is enjoying her tiny garden greens on your balcony; bless her and she's dreaming too...

Oh, Tammy, the Hugo quote is the best!! You always find the perfect quotes. I just love them. And, these skies, they put the soul on its knees... blessings ~ tanna

I hope you find cooler days ahead. I am trying to remember if you are in Kuwait? My son was in Iraq...and he still reminds me of the heat there when I complain about Michigan summers.
Beautiful photos...hope you have a wonderful week!

Jan said...

Hi Tammy,
The pictures are amazing! The weather here is still hot and I thoroughly enjoy the sunny days but from the shade ;)
Love the kitty's rest place!

Stitchy Mc Floss said...

I know what you mean about enjoying God's blessings with the lovely pictures of the sky. God is in the details of life. :)

I love the last snap of your sweet little kitty in the pot. So cute. :)

What's on your hook today?

Blessings always. :)

Well you learn something new every day. I had no idea that you don't get nice puffy clouds in the summer! But you're right, they do make for some nice shots of the glowing sky!

K @ Aurora Blythe said...

Have so enjoyed catching up on your blog this evening! Jingles is simply too cute! Also, I really appreciated your Meatless Monday post. My husband and I are trying to cut costs and have at least 2 meatless or nearly meatless meals each week.

It is hot and humid here too. I am still waiting for the weather to change. We don't get those lovely clouds that you do, or if we do, they are hidden behind the eternal layer of dust that covers the sky. With all the contrustion that goes on here, the dust is ever present... BOO!!
I love all the pictures you send, so keep enjoying those gifts from God!!

Love you,
