Bonked on the Head

Bonked on the Head

Picture of dark skies, and a bright streak of lightning I took a few years ago.

So, I was bonked on the head last night.

Here’s what happened…

The ferocious thunderstorm, with crashing lightning and thunder, buckets of rain, and hail pinging off the windows woke me up around midnight. As usual I’d fallen asleep in the recliner chair while I was reading, but after the loud noise woke me up, decided I’d better go on to bed. First a visit to the bathroom.

Just as I went in there, I was bonked on the head by something falling from the ceiling! Still half asleep, I fumbled around trying to find what it was. I looked down at the floor and saw the overhead, plastic light fixture cover was the culprit. Good thing it was only plastic, as the other light we have over the sink, has a glass cover.

Anyway, I set the cover off to the side. But, then that light went out. At least I had the sink light on, too. At first I thought maybe the lightning or the rumbling thunder that was shaking the house had made it all happen. Who knows…could have been.

I finally made it back to bed, and Cricket and I watched the storm some more out the west windows…flash boom ping –  flash boom ping! The storm was over by the morning.

I AM NOT AFRAID

I AM NOT AFRAID

Listen…silence is broken

Lone lobo laments his lonliness

In the still of the sultry night

I am not afraid

Moon flowers look to the stars above

Heat lightning foretells the future

Storm a’coming; I feel it in my bones

I am not afraid

COLOR YOUR WORLD – INDIGO

COLOR YOUR WORLD – INDIGO untitled 1024x768-indigo-solid-color-background

For today’s color match, we have Indigo. I thought indigo was a deep, dark blue. This color swatch looks lilac/purple to me, though. I don’t know why.

I was lucky to have taken this photo just as the lightning struck!

The other one is just a pretty picture of the moon. 🙂
