We pledge to fight ‘blue-sky thinking’ wherever we find it. Life would be dull if we had to look up at cloudless monotony day after day.

Yesterday I sat out on the dock for a while watching the remnants of Thursday’s storms roll by overhead.
There was a lovely, cool and gusty breeze moving the clouds along at a fast clip.
Today there is barely a cloud in the sky. Just the a few little puffy cotton balls showing up every now and then.
There’s something beautiful about keeping certain aspects of your life hidden. Maybe people and clouds are beautiful because you can’t see everything.

Because I have a cold with an agonizingly sore throat, it seemed to me the best thing I could do yesterday was pay a visit to Chesapeake Bay Farms and sample their ice cream. Ever since having my tonsils out when I was a child, I’ve known that ice cream is the best thing ever for a sore throat. All the adults told me so.
I believe the adults were right. I had the Coconut Joy ice cream, and did experience joy while eating it. The taste was amazing, almost buttery, and the cold soothed my throat. I understand that dairy products will add to congestion when one has a cold, but I don’t seem any worse for it.
I highly recommend a visit to Chesapeake Bay Farms if you’re ever in the area. The ice cream is decadently delicious, and they have cute cow benches outside the store. Who can resist a cute cow bench? Not me, that’s for sure.
Here’s the funky looking view of the clouds:
I’m not terribly good with the panoramic feature on my camera because I can’t see well enough to match things up. I usually wind up with squiggly looking land. But the clouds are pretty cool, don’t you think?
That’s it from the Wabi-Sabi Ranch for today. Thank you for visiting, and joining me in some sky watching. I hope your weekend has been going well so far, and that you’ve found time to relax and play.
Be good, be kind, be loving. Just Be. 🙂
