(AP photo)This was our weekend for the annular eclipse. A perfect view in Albuquerque. "Annular" refers to a perfect ring. And everything about the event was perfect.
Our family gathering for a graduation weekend culminated in the spectacular event on the last day. Just before sundown. Young and old, faces to the sky in anticipation. We made our filters like kids doing a third grade project, and then oooh-ed and aaaw-ed together.
It was the perfect endless weekend for kicking off an endless summer.
One of the new youngsters in the family tried to climb a large tree and fell back awkwardly onto the lawn. I let out a good laugh. The nine year old turned to me and said, "I've never had a grown-up laugh when I fell out of a tree." I was thinking, "And I've never heard a child your age hear a horse whinny and ask 'what was that?'" Who would guess that these days simply being outside could be an adventure.
My bunch of roses is from Costco. Sweet small blooms. And I have to use the word perfect again for the weather. Our usual clear skies, and the days a perfect temperature. A cooling breeze wafting in for perfect sleeping weather. . . .
Today feels more Monday than usual.
We're exhausted! But in a good way.
I hope your week is off to an awesome and shining start!
