sunrise and sunset
So excited, it's 9pm and the living room has bright sunlight streaming through it's west facing window! It's like a summer afternoon, so bright. I had actually forgotten that the light comes in here at all in summer, it kind of rolls down north slope of the hill always looking like it is about to disappear, but it waits till it gets to the bottom before it goes.
Last night was the first night without northern clouds so I saw the sky not being dark. It was beautiful. A bit too beautiful, I had felt so deprived of our light nights I stayed up till 3.30am gazing at it because they've say the rain will be back over the weekend (and we're still having lots of showers), drinking in the loveliness of the changing shades and intensities of blue. By 3.30 it was daylight. One night of Summer at last YEY!
They clouds are arriving as I type but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they will leave a gap at the bottom so we can finally see a sunset. The sunsets we see from our windows are one of the reasons I moved here.
