No excuses. Just a priorities thing.
Life, and all its distractions, wonderful and horrific, has simply taken over first place on the list.
But I’ll be back, I promise.
Happy Winter, and whatever holidays you happen to celebrate.
Back to regularly scheduled life now.
I thought of the same series of photos for both challenges so here is the amazing experience I had this week on a mountain top outside Spokane, Washington. Both sites have such amazing contributions each week. Check them out too!!
It almost became a joke for all of us witnessing the gift of this sunset. Every few seconds someone would say “Look at the SUNSET!” and sure enough, we’d turn to look and it was a completely different one from just minutes before!!
