Sunday Sunrise




This morning when I opened my eyes I saw a glow behind the closed curtains. I jumped out of bed and threw on my robe knowing that the glow meant a beautiful sunrise was taking place without me.

On the west side of the cabin I saw this gorgeous lenticular cloud,
looking for all the world like the Mother Ship was about to land and take us away.


On the other side, or east side of the cabin, was this cloud, which was not quite as well formed.


We went to town today to get the few groceries that we need to get us by for the rest of the week before we leave. I don’t even want to think about leaving this special place on Earth. But, leave we must.


A nice pronghorn antelope on the way into Laramie.

We also did laundry while in town and that went by quickly given you do three loads of wash all at once. Some of it that didn’t go in the laundromat driers is blowing in the stiff breeze on the clothesline.


The sky coming back from Laramie.

We tried a new recipe last night that came from the latest issue of Food Network Magazine, and I have to say it was absolutely delicious and we both gave it 5 stars! It was this Lasagna Soup. It tasted just like lasagna but with half the fuss. We’ll be making it again soon.

Just so you know, we have to be careful with our internet usage and have exhausted our limit on several days so I try to only use it a few times per day. Therefore I am not really commenting on comments, nor visiting your blogs as often as I usually do. Sorry! I appreciate all your comments!

That first photo is just gorgeous, and the rest are beautiful too.  The kind of skies and clouds you just don’t see in New Jersey!

Wow, that was a beautiful sunrise, weird alien clouds included!

I will be trying that recipe, but may switch out the sausage for a “mixed species” blend. HaHa.

Love the cloud, and the antelope. It’s hard for me to imagine a place where such creatures are just wandering around! (Though I guess it’s not a whole lot different from seeing a deer. It just seems more exotic.)

C, thank you! And no, you certainly don’t see these kinds of skies and clouds in NJ!

Bigsis, I’ve only seen these kinds of clouds a couple of times. They are kind of rare and the conditions have to be just right. Don’t change the recipe!! You can do sausage; mixed species would not taste the same. We used hot italian sausage and it was just right. So yummy!
