Day Is Done

Drop Down Sunshine01
The storms were rolling by to the north of us this afternoon. There were even tornado warnings out for some of the Ottawa Valley. At one point, I paused in the kitchen, to remark to Ede that not even the birds were stirring.
Drop Down Sunshine02There was such a heaviness to the air – so humid – so hot. Donkeys, cats, people, birds, chipmunks, squirrels … everything was tucked into someplace cool and quiet.
Drop Down Sunshine05After dinner the sun came out from below the clouds – swirling its paintbrush all through the trees.
Drop Down Sunshine04Dipping tree tops in lime green …
Drop Down Sunshine03… and still the birds were not singing. I have a feeling there will be some thunder still rolling around late tonight.
Drop Down Sunshine06In the meantime the mosquitoes are doing their best to get in a good feeding!
Drop Down Sunshine07And the donkeys are heading for the cover of the big fans in the barns. I quite like ending the day brushing a tranquil donkey who is willing to stand in front of a cooling fan out of the bugs!
