Wordless Wednesday

Sea of Clouds #WW

Howdy, Kittens & Dawgs! Last month, DH and I attempted to see the Perseids meteor shower to no avail. The reason being a shroud of heavy cloud coverage hung our night sky with only a few breaks to see anything more than a single shooting star for each of us at different times the entire time spent staring into the pitch blackness with our necks craned and our imaginations stretched. This might seem a bit of a disappointment, but it was actually a fun adventure. Also, there’s an advantage to being in the mountains at 2am. We got a jump-start on getting to our favorite spots before the crowd. The clouds stayed with us throughout the day and this is why the Perseids was not visible with such a Sea of Clouds!

I’m making headway on repairing broken links and videos, but it’s not getting done fast enough to suit me. Next week, I’m thinking about stepping away for just a bit to try to get this job done.Β  Today’s photo contribution for (not-so) Wordless Wednesday I plan to share with photo enthusiasts from around the globe participating in Skywatch Friday.

Next up, Friday Sillies and more Friday fun stuff!



Create and Craft

I born and raised in the Appalachian mountains of southern WV. I was a child bride when I married my high school sweetheart in 1979. We moved to Knoxville, TN to begin our life. Determined to prove nay-Sayers from our community wrong, I completed my education and went on to earn an A.S. in computer programming. From 1983-1987, I worked as a computer system’s manager. That’s a glorified title for someone who trouble shoots and maintains system back-ups. After the birth of our first child in 1988, I took early retirement. What have I been doing for the last 25+ years? I am proud to say, I am a SAHM and for most of those years I home-schooled our three children from K-12. Now, the nest is empty.
