Skywatch Friday – Two opposing views

As I settled in to watch the election results Tuesday night, I was confronted with two opposing views: the tv and the sunset out my window.


The view out the window helped to remind me that no matter what the outcome of the election, the sun would still come up in the morning.

For views of the sky around the world, check out the Skywatch Friday page.

  3. If only some of our blogging friends would stop for a moment, read your blog, and think, prior to publishing some of their hateful drivel, that maybe they shouldn't hit that 'publish' button after all....

  5. Let me get this out of the way first: beautiful sky watch entry, so much life in those colors.

    Now for that ER thing: I love it when you said the show died with Dr. Green's character. Hahaha. I used to be a faithful follower, until Dr. Green died. That's when my interest in the show died as well.

    But this season, being its last one, I feel nostalgic and have decided to watch it again. Also, there's nothing better to see at that timeslot :D.

    Thanks for the info about the episode tonight.

  12. OMG, so beautiful!!! I think I would toss my tv out the window if I had that view in the evenings!

  13. And isn't one of the greatest things about this election that so many people voted!?! Many who had never voted before voted this time. A record turnout like this makes ALL of us the big winners.

    I'm afraid I'd have to pick watching the sunset over the tv. We don't have tv so I'm nicely weaned from it--sunsets, however, I will never be weaned from. GORGEOUS!

  26. Thank you for checking in at my blog, "You may be a Pony Cousin, if..."
    I have carefully considered all of the factors and have determined that there are bloggers out there who are just as "horse crazy" as the Pony Cousins. However, i have found many, many bloggers who have taken "horse crazy" to new heights!

  30. Somehow I missed this post of yours...gorgeous sunset. I'd forgotten just how beautiful they are in the SW. I lived outside of Tucson for a couple of years and really enjoyed the sunsets there.
