Freeform Friday

Sunset Meadows

Since you got to hear me rant about our freezing cold, snowbound wicked winter, it's only right that I tell you this.

The last week of spring has been amazing. Spring has been a bit wishy-washy, not wanting to give up winter, more gray days than I'd like, and a fair bit of rain, so the fact that is has showed it's true colors this past week has been quite welcome. I am enjoying it with a grateful heart.

Last night we sat out and watched the sunset. It was a beautiful end, to a beautiful day with that pretty, spring light streaming across the lawn and sunset meadows. 

I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

Freeform Friday

Now that the World Cup is in full force, I thought an ode to Brazil would be appropriate. You'll probably all remember this version that launched the career of Astrud Gilberto. Well, at least if you're as old as I am. Her vocals are amazing. Click here if you're reading via email

Then of course, there is Ms. Warwick. Click here if you're reading via email.

This version I found by chance and I'm glad I did. These kids knock it out of the park. Click here if you're reading via email.

This weekend will be full. Tonight, if the breeze dies down, more than likely a campfire outback to enjoy more of this beautiful weather. Tomorrow is my niece Cait's baby shower. She's got a month to go and we'll be welcoming Miss Olivia.  Sunday I hope to work in the garden and the yard. It would be nice if the pool was ready to go by then, but we will see.  Don't miss the USA v Portugal on in Sunday night World Cup action at 6pm est. It's a big one! Of course, they all are. It's the World Cup.

Got anything planned for the weekend?

Whatever you do, make it a good one.

Ciao for now,


  1. Thanks for sharing these gorgeous shots, I don't get to see sunsets like that with all the buildings close to home. I will be out for dinner tonight, so I won't be watching the match live, but after dinner I'm sure I'll turn on the tv to watched what happened. I hope it will be a good one and you guys will win. !

    1. ok you must have seen the replays by now. OMG, SUCH a bummer to end up in a tie THAT close to a win. heartbreaker. but at least it wasn't a loss. was pretty happy with the two goals we scored and how we played.
      bummer that you don't get to see the sunsets. I'd be lost without them.

  2. Really nice and informative blog, keep it up buddy…Thanks for sharing
