The fun times of the week included my sister's amazing cooking (no photos, sorry-too busy eating), some glorious weather that took us outside to a park for minnow-fishing, a photo session, sandcastles building, and a bird that let us get so close I wondered if it was injured. In between, there were driving-in-the-car talks with my nephews as I made the school runs, hugs, and some nice conversations with my little sis. With some great help from the thirteen-year old, I got the video done for 2sides2points that I needed to do. Thirteen year olds are very good to have nearby when doing technical things.
I made it home safe and sound, driving mostly in the post-twilight and pre-dawn dark of Autumn, so there are no thrilling photos, but I really do wish I could have properly captured the moon rise on Friday night and the sunrise on Saturday morning. Just beautiful. I will remember in my mind.
I'm grateful I got to take this trip and reconnect with this strong and unique branch of my big family.
|This cloud formation amazed me and I took so many pictures|
my neck was getting sore from bending back to look at it.

with water later on.
|I wish I lived in a castle guarded by these two.|

|That MOON! It was stunning. I almost stopped|
to take pictures with my big camera. Almost.
But I needed to get home.
|Next morning, the moon in the sunrise-lit |
western sky over I-81.
|And home again to our almost-tiny house in the burbs. It's|
not fancy, but I sure love to see it after trips away.
