Beautiful June Sunset

With the Summer Solstice eleven days away, it has been getting darker later. Although I am a fan of winter and it getting dark earlier, I enjoy taking later walks and the sunsets at 8:30 PM are just gorgeous.

Saturday was one of those sunsets. As I was laying on the couch, resting from my day out in Philadelphia, mom called me outside to look at the beautiful sky. A few hours earlier we had downpours, but now those downpours were done. They left the clouds pink and the skies a combination of pinks, purples, and dark blues. It was just breathtaking.

Sunrises and sunsets have always made me feel at peace.

And last night it poured. I fell asleep to the sound of heavy rains hitting the roof and windows. I find that relaxing and the rain always helps me fall asleep. What is it about rain/water that helps people relax? Then again, I've always loved the sky and water.


  1. This is Kupala Day in Russia and Jashn-e Tiregân in Iran! China the only major thing might be end of spring term...

    I had been frightened by the thunder thanks to playing too much Beethoven so I couldn't sleep, but some friends have been helping me through that.

    1. Those holidays sound neat! Might have to sorta celebrate one when I get home.

      ::hug:: I hope you feel better now!

    2. There's always something happening somewhere in the world!

      I found this DJ lolcat which might make you chortle. Please feel better soon, yourself!

    3. :D I LOVE this and it made me giggle. I'm going to have to print it out and hang the picture up. Thank you!

    1. I'm excited to see what the sky looks like tonight.

  3. With regards to this post's first paragraph, we've lost about an hour of evening daylight since mid-June. It now becomes dark at around 8:00-9:00 here for the time being.

    1. Yep, it gets darker around 8:15 here now. I guess until December 21, we'll be losing a minute each day. I personally love when it gets dark at 4:30!
