Warm Sunset

Last Saturday night we had the nost amazing sunset. It preceded a few days of 80-90 degree weather here in Orange County.

It's hard to believe it's nearly Christmas with the heat of summer and the trees around us just turning the colors of autumn.

On one side of us the setting sun made the leaves glow in reds, pinks and oranges.

On the other side you could catch a glimpse of a perfect crescent moon.

A gorgeous sky and a peaceful evening.

As peaceful as it gets with a 6 week old baby. :)

I'm trying to send some warmth to those of you bogged down in mountains of snow. We're looking at rain this week... how are you doing where you are?

  1. Well Glory Be I saw blue sky yesterday...for about 5 seconds. Snow fall this week wasn't that bad....only 15 inches as opposed to the 24 inches last week. Now if it wouldn't be so very cold.

    it's been cold here in Nashville. freezing rains yesterday but it warmed up in the night so I think that means today will just be normal cold, not freezing cold. either way I will be indoors staying comfy cozy :)

  4. I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and we have our usual lovely RAIN. It has rained pretty much the past two weeks strait, I can't even clean out my jeep its been so stinking wet. We have ponds and mini lakes in places they are not suppose to be. We are expected to have a very cold winter, with lots of snow too. One reason why Tim and I are planning a trip to Mexico in March. Its my 30th bday gift to myself.lol After our disney trip with our 3 kiddos, we are in much need of an adult ONLY trip.*wink* Im jealous of your warm weather :)

  5. Ahhhh...that looks wonderful! It's crazy cold here in Missouri! The highs haven't been above freezing for a while. We were in Dallas last week and experienced 65 degree weather which makes the cold here even harder to bear. Oh well. This too shall pass.

  7. Wasn't it beautiful. We live up in Simi Valley and had an equally beautiful sunset. I don't look forward to 5 days of rain starting tomorrow though. Oh well it will feel more like Christmas.

  10. In Iowa any sunset that is tinged with red is almost a certain indication of sunshine the next day. I don't know if that works on the coast! Check it out by observation and see!
