Gray is my favorite color

Everyone wishes for beautiful days, days full of sunlight and warmth, bright skies and shining faces. Today I discovered a new kind of beauty, the beauty of a shapeless gray sky with cloud cover so thick that not a ray of sunlight can poke through it. The beauty of KayTar squealing and giggling happily as we drove down the road with the windows down for the first time in weeks. The beauty of my little hermit being able to play outdoors with her brother again. The beauty of screams being replaced with belly laughs. The beauty of fresh air and open spaces. The beauty of freedom for my wee one.






Okay, so maybe she squinted the whole time we were out there, but she was happy and not in actual pain...definite upgrade.

I have never said this to anyone before, but I'm wishing you many more days of thick cloud cover this fall.

Those pictures are awesome.

Precious! Ok, my attitude about the weather just perked up...

I popped over here from Julie's, after I read your comment about The Journey and your blog title - since I had just left the same comment (almost). My title is "everyday life as lyric poetry" but...I chose that because of the journey, if that makes sense.

Anyway, nice to meet you - and lovely blog!

I love those first 2 pics!! So glad yall were able to get outside and enjoy this weather.

Isn't it nice to finally be able to comfortably wear pants? Even if it is only for just a few hours. LOL.

Those may be my favorite shots ever of your two.

And I'm so happy she could have fun outside -- finally.

I'm with KayTar -I like clouds.

Jessica said...

Gray days are great. You don't have to deal with that pesky sun in your eyes.
She looked like she thoroughly enjoyed it and I bet Bubtar loved having a playmate.

Kellan said...

I too - wish you many more over-cast days.
