Finally, a sunset

The days lately have been so drab and dreary without any sunshine, so it was nice to see the sun yesterday and today. As I drove up our road to the house tonight, I could see we were in for a lovely sunset. I came in the door, greeted MrC before picking up my camera and going out on to the deck to catch the last of the sunset colors before they faded into the night's velvet blackness.

I have busy since returning from Reno, so blogging has been on a back burner and will probably remain so for a while. The countdown until I leave for my visit to New Zealand has started in earnest. 13 days from tomorrow.
I confess to feelings of excitement now the time is so near, and have started to pack some of the things I plan on taking with me. Making lists is a good thing, I think it has something with age as I find I forget things, dang it anyway! So there are many check marks on the list as the items are placed in one of the suitcases.
Well, that is all for now, I remember something else to be packed and if I don't go and do it now, I will forget. *chuckle*

How long has it been since you have seen your kids?
