Last week, one night when I couldn't sleep there was a very bright spot in the southern sky. It was so bright, I decided to see if I could get the camera to focus and figure out what it was. Focus was beyond my camera's capabilities. I think it's Mars, but if you are an astronomy buff, feel free to correct me.
This is how bright it was without much magnification.
Just another day later, the sunrise was intensely red. The warning part didn't pan out, though. Still no rain. However, I liked the paired birds.
The light from this sunrise was so red it colored my kitchen wall.
And all this dry weather is stressing the plants. They think it's fall already. Virginia Creeper already turning bright red.
In other news: I did a whole bunch of stupid little tasks that don't leave me feeling as if I've accomplished anything. I worked a little more on my hiking menus, and then walked 5 3/4 miles with no pack. I decided to go for distance and was going to do 7 miles, but then my weather app (and my observations) said it was going to rain, so I went home. No rain. So did I redeem any further time? I did not. I read a book.
Oh yeah, and I finally did something about the background on this blog.
