Seattle Sun

Seattle Sun

In between the thick gray clouds, and just before dark, my home office turned bright orange and I saw the sun saying goodbye, playing hide and seek in the tree.

  1. I am loving the sun, warmer days (woo-hoo we are hitting the 50 degree range) and longer daylight. I never thought I had an issue with gray days…but I seem to this year or at least, I really seem to appreciate the sunshine now. I love all seasons. This winter seems like a long one…or is it just me?

  2. Sunsets like this one reminds me of my expat years in Africa where the sun hits dust particles from the deserts at a certain angle and puts the whole sky on fire at sunset. If we now just had the warmth, scents and sounds of an African evening we would be perfect. Sigh, why most there always be so many trade-offs in life? Though, the long wait makes you appreciate the summer much more than if it’s always there.

  3. I agree tj. I’m from PA where Spring was GLORIOUS after a cold and snowy Winter. But I felt like I only really lived a portion of each year. Too much hibernating. I lived in Florida, and the only “weather” I truly remember were the torrential downpours just when my girls were getting out of school and the Tornado that killed my roofer. You get immune to the sunshine. In CA it was all about the views, as I lived by the Ocean, but as someone mentioned earlier, the people were just too fake.

    For all they say about Seattle and it’s weather…it’s pretty darned good around here.

  4. This post made me want to channel the beatles! Thanks Ardell!

    Little darlin’
    It’s been a long cold lonely winter
    little darlin’
    It’s seems like years since it’s been here…

    Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
    Little darling, it seems like years since it’s been here
    Here comes the sun,
    Here comes the sun, and I say
    it’s all right

    Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting
    Little darling, it seems like years since it’s been clear
    Here comes the sun,
    Here comes the sun, and I say
    it’s all right

    Here comes the sun
    Here comes the sun
    And I say
    It’s all right

    Time to add this song to my iPod now!

  5. In africa it’s the poverty and the crime that comes out of poverty that was the issue for us. The weather is as close to perfect as it can be where we were. The people are amazing, positive, happy, friendly curious, hospital and the don’t worry be happy no matter what attitude is additictive and good for the soul. We would never have left if it wasn’t for the security and freedom issues we predicted for our kids. Seattle is a good trade-off for our family now but we sure miss the african sun and spirit during the winter months.

  6. It is pretty darned good, Ardell. The weather is amazing, and you couldn’t ask for a more mild winter. Gorgeous photograph, Ardell, way to capture such natural beauty. I am reveling in this ‘winter’ – it’s sort of like a constant spring for me 😉

  7. I just turned around, and there it was. I always have a camera or three lying about. Tools of the trade.

    Glad you are enjoying your Seattle Winter. I think we should have a picnic in Spring. I haven’t been on a picnic in…maybe ever.
