I’m sneaking in under the wire on this week’s post for One Day, One World. These evening time frames are starting to get harder since by 9 pm I’m usually winding down and looking forward to bed.
This week however seemed to provide an unusual flurry of activity. On Sunday, a visit from my sons for dinner provided a rowdy evening of conversation and laughter. Bikes were stacked in the front hall since three of them rode directly to our house from their long training rides. When it was time to go home, the challenge became how to fit 3 adult bikes and 4 men into a vehicle with a roof rack that accommodates only one bike.
As the sun was going down, I tried to capture the beauty of the darkening sky against the shadows. Photo was taken around 9:30 pm.
On Tuesday, I got to visit with my newest great-nephew who is only 6 weeks old. I squeezed in lots of squishy cuddles and inhaled that new-baby smell. It was a wonderful visit, but the 90 minute drive home was later than I had planned. I was rewarded with a lightning show for most of the drive, enhanced by the growing darkness.
I managed to quickly snap a picture at a red light close to home – unfortunately my timing and photography skills are lacking and I missed the beautiful flashes of lightning straight ahead of me. This photo was taken shortly before 10 pm.
This was a snapshot of my week between 9 and 10 pm.
