And a pure reflection of the colors of the flag of the Bahamas. This was taken at Big D’s Conch Stop, which was an absolutely gorgeous place to eat by the sea. I discovered that I am indeed allergic to conch (sorry conch, three strikes and you’re out). I don’t like eating conch anyway because of the time I dove one out of the water at Cow Wreck Beach and it looked at me with its little eyes as if it were saying, “Are you gonna EAT ME????” It looked so scared that I put it out far away from anyone else who might be looking for lunch.
Great Exuma, Bahamas.

The crazy beautiful sunset sunbeams through the fall leaves

Can you see the faint edge of a rainbow next to the center monument in this image? I noticed it while we were waiting for dinner, and we both had a wonderful time trying to capture this slight piece of magic. Things here, after the flood, are still in clean up and anxiety mode, but I have been doing a lot of processing, not only about the value of “things”, as I mentioned in a previous post, but the concept of home, which is something I have struggled with my whole life. Hopefully, the words that are running like an army of motorized slinkies in my brain will chill into something I can put on (electronic) paper soon.

Happy children on the shuttle
An early bedtime
A vat of pork green chili on the stove
Nine quarts of roasted green chiles in the freezer

And that my blessing, otherwise known as my amazing daughter, just called me out of the blue to tell me how awesome she thinks I am. I love her so much.
No, not actual flames. We’ve seen enough of those in Colorado this year. These are flames of sunset, sparking through the clouds over the Intercoastal Waterway. There may be buildings in the way of our view of the Sound and its sunsets, but they have come to be old friends in our line of vision, and the end of the day would not be as lovely without them.

Pork green chile so hot it makes me cry

It was a gentle weather day, a blessing in January. We are preparing for Stock Show weather, which means C-O-L-D. It will be a high of 20 on Saturday for opening day. I know I’ve been rather boring lately, with little but the weather and an occasional thought. Trust me, I’ve been thinking, but mostly I’ve been workingworkingworkingworkingworkingworking. Another two weeks of constant work and I hope my thoughts and my blog will be more expressive. I miss me.

Quote of the day: “Have you ever heard the wonderful silence just before the dawn? Or the quiet and calm just as a storm ends? Or perhaps you know the silence when you haven’t the answer to a question you’ve been asked, or the hush of a country road at night, or the expectant pause of a room full of people when someone is just about to speak, or, most beautiful of all, the moment after the door closes and you’re alone in the whole house? Each one is different, you know, and all very beautiful if you listen carefully.” – Norman Juster
Geese in flight
Soft pajamas that you can’t wait to get into
Not having to wear a coat on a Colorado January day
My chicken purse
Space cowboy boots
Sometimes it seems like there is a window straight into heaven.

Unusual emptiness and silence downtown this morning
The calls of strange birds flying south
The beautiful moon this past week
The apparently-reproducing mass of pillows in my bed
A weekend at Cottonwood Hot Springs was healing and rejunvenating, and ended with an amazing sky over South Park. It was beautiful driving up, warm and sunny and star-filled while we were there.

How easy it is for me to meet people
The unsolicited praise for me sent to my boss from a hard-to-please co-worker
My poet nightshirt that always makes me feel pretty
The feel of summer
Getting home before dark
