God’s Paintbrush

The sky was an impressive mix of colors, as if God’s paintbrush had been used to cheer up the dingy little town. Hues of blues, lavenders and pinks decorated the sky above the snow capped mountains, and the sleepy little town missed the whole picture.

I love sunrises as well as sunsets, especially on the beach, yet this picture captured so many beautiful colors mixed together, I just had to showcase this one!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “color/colour.” Use it as a noun, a verb, or pick a color and write about it–use it any way you like. Have fun!

It’s a toast 95 degrees here in the Hills today and I’d rather be swimming while my hubby plays golf, but I need to ready my house for my dad to come spend some time here next week while my oldest son goes on vacation. I’ve bought new sheets and a mattress protector for the guest bed, I need to clean up the room and make space for his clothes, so he will feel at home.


Ricotta deserts with fresh blueberries

Next, I’ll get the refrigerator cleaned up and make room for the things I’ll be bringing from his house that he likes to eat. I’d like to make more of this dessert I made for myself last week, I think Dad would like it too.

It’s kind of a trial run of sorts, to see if one day he might actually decide he would like to live with us. I know I would worry a lot less, and then Sean could see what it’s like to have only himself to manage, only himself to pay for things, and get himself in the right mindset for being on his own again.

I know Dad is more comfortable in his own house, but he has stairs to deal with and sharing the space with Sean these last five years must be sometimes stressful. Without going into details, things need to change. By Wednesday, I hope to have everything ready for Dad to spend a week here with us, pray it all works out well! Maybe we will have a cooler night or morning to watch a sunrise/sunset together.
