IN THE FIELD: The First Sunset


The big move to our new home a few days ago went smoothly and was mostly stress free. Rain was predicted for the morning but thankfully it never amounted to more than a drizzle.

On the first night, furniture was placed, beds were made, makeshift curtains were hung for a semblance of privacy, and other necessities of life were located and unpacked. Take out food was the dinner of choice…after a long day, I really didn’t feel like cooking. Besides…all the pots, pans, and utensils were still in boxes.

As the eventful day was coming to a close, we went outside for some fresh air and were treated to the first sunset at our new home. This one lasted quite a while and we were able to relax outside and enjoy it before heading inside to eat dinner.

This view is looking due west. In the lower right hand corner of the photo, the steeple of a church is visible. The bells in the tower chime the time of day every hour on the hour. After the time is announced, a few stanzas of the song of the day is then played. How cool is that!

      Sharon said I could build quite a collection of sunsets…haven’t been up early enough to check the sunrises yet LOL

    Wow, a spectacular sunset the first day! I suspect we’ll be seeing more sunsets in your blog now. The church chimes are like the background music of your subdivision. ENJOY your new home!

      You suspected correctly John…we have a perfect view…at least at this time of year. The church chimes are really nice…especially in the morning and at dark!
