* In the Cool Cool Cool of the Evening ....

I've been whining about the heat.  It was pretty hot there for a few days.  Better now, since we had the thunder, hail, lightening, and torrential downpour.  :o)

When the sun goes down, it cools off quickly here.  We are in the high desert (over a mile high to be exact).  I spend the evening on my covered terrace, the ceiling fan on, twinkle lights on the window, a glass of wine in hand, and my computer on the table.  When it gets dark, it's a lovely place to be.  Come join me ....

This is what it looks like during the day.
How hard it is to escape from places.  However carefully one goes they hold you - you leave little bits of yourself fluttering on the fences - like rags and shreds of your very life.  ~Katherine Mansfield


  1. Soooooooooooooo beautiful! And most places look even nicer at night, when subtly lit, and the edges begin to fade and merge....Your patio looks a wonderful place to be, and I am glad it has cooled off for you. Take care of yourself, enjoy the magi oc the moment! Hugs, Valerie

  2. Yes Valerie .. I know what you mean. I'm beginning to look better at night myself. :o) Thanks for stopping by.
