It’s Saturday (ok, it’s really Sunday, but let’s pretend I posted this when the timestamp says I did) so it’s time to look back at three beautiful things from the past week.
1. Much was made this past week of Manhattanhenge, when the sun sets in line with the streets of New York, but I saw a similarly spectacular sunset on Tuesday, when the sun was directly next to the Capitol dome, and seemingly the same size. It was absolutely stunning – I actually stopped in the median of Pennsylvania Avenue to stare.
2. One of my tasks this week was to water the yard of my friends Julia & Michael, who have been out of town. They have a sprinkler set up, and given how hot it was earlier in the week, I happily ran under it – in my work clothes! (Yes, really that hot.) It made me feel like a kid again.
3. The smiley boy at right – my eight-month-old nephew, James – came to visit for a couple of days. I’ve been covered in drool bombs and slobbery kisses, and it’s been wonderful.
What’s been beautiful in your world this week?
