So yesterday I had this whole wonderful evening ritual I wanted to do with my kids when I got home from work.  There was even going to be a mini bonfire (I live in an apartment with a small balcony so the fire has to be small) and music.  But alas, no sooner did I get home and out of my work clothes when it began to rain.  And not even a straight rain, oh no.  It was raining sideways!  While that was loads of fun to watch, it unfortunately put a damper (pun intended) on my ritual plans.  And since the husband was home, we couldn't do it inside.  So, I tucked the children into bed, talked a bit about Midsummer and then went to eat my dinner.  I did, however, manage to get a great picture of the amazing sunset earlier in the day while I was at work.

*NOTE *Blogger is being a butthead and not letting me upload the pic I took.  I'll keep trying though.  I am determined to be the victor!

I hope you all had a wonderful solstice.  )o(

*UPDATE* An hour later and I WIN!!!!  Here's the pic.



  1. Beautiful photo! We had (I mean, we STILL have) the rain here in southwest Michigan.

    Hopefully things brighten up (and warm up) soon. :)

  2. I'll send some sunshine your way Polly!
