These were taken one recent morning from my back deck.
It was impossible for me and my little camera to adequately capture the beauty of the sky.
It was magnificent.
On Saturday Baby Sister and I depart for the Outer Banks of North Carolina for the half-marathon neither of us is really ready for. No matter, we will have more fun than two forty somethings should ever have. I can state this with confidence because in the past year we've done two half marathons, one of which required plane travel and an interaction with TSA officials that still makes me howl with laughter.
(Click here for the blog post about the Nashville half marathon. The TSA story, which I never did get around to telling, is vaguely referenced as the "story for another day.")
Rest assured I will be laughing before we leave
In other news, the Mathews High School cross country teams advance to the state meet, thanks to their success in Thursday's regional meet. The boys won the championship and the girls placed second overall. Daughter shaved even more time off her personal best time yet. I am extremely proud of her efforts.
I won't return to the blogosphere until Tuesday but until then have a wonderful, radiant weekend.
