June 26 Muse – 2015

Friday Morning Coffee Muses… It’s a nice morning to be sitting on the back porch with my coffee. The summer weather pattern looks to be well established…

Clear blue skies with just wisps of white to start the day…
then beautiful cumulus clouds building up along the coast to my south…
beginning their trek inland, darkening the bright day as they go…
dropping isolated pockets of rain as they pass by…
turning troublesome the further north they go…
Summer on the Texas Gulf Coast.

This mornings warmth isn’t oppressive, even though I started late. There is a slight breeze adding it’s coolness to the fans overhead. I do declare… that was one of the best ideas we had when we had this house built. I just wish I had made the porch a little bigger.

I guess I should start moving here, I don’t want any afternoon showers raining on my John Deere parade of one…

Here is a shot from a while back that reminds me of the day…

  1. Are you getting any of the Saharan Air Layer over there? I got a few photos on Tuesday (?) and it’s back again tonight. Great sunsets, that’s for sure. And if it’s clear, don’t forget to look for the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter. They’re really close together now, and I think the 30th is their closest approach.

    When you were talking about dragonflies and such the other day, I was nodding in agreement. And don’t forget spiders! Itsy-bitsy spiders are all over now. I hardly can varnish without a herd of them running through and creating a mess. Must be babies flying on silk.

    1. Is that that high thin layer of clouds that isn’t moving as the lower clouds scud on by? As for leaving the house after dark… I’ll have to think about that. We’ve had an influx of some of the biggest mosquitoes I have ever seen and their bites cause horrendous itching…

      A few years back it was baby praying mantises. You have never seen anything as “cute” as a thousand miniature green mantises fitting in the area of a paperback book.
