This isn't Skywatch Friday but my mom has been so crazy about the sunsets lately she took bunches of pictures. The camera doesn't show all the pretty colors but you can see some--sort of salmon and turquoise. I wonder if it smells like fish up close? The squiggle is bird poop on the car windshield.

We didn't get this up in time for working for the Snuggle Puggle but here I am enjoying Sunday doing what I love to do--which is walking along the cut up tree trunk and hanging out with the pack.

My mom says to say she is sorry. Due to budget cuts, she has lost all her help at work and is now doing the work of SIX people. Yes, she is glad she still has a job but it makes her so tired. I help all I can by keeping her warm. It's been down to 8 degrees at night here!

Tell your Mum to look for Venus in the sky at night, it is the biggest, brightest star during the month of February. That will make her smile.

Make sure that your mom is taking time for herself. We know that it's hard to find the time but it really helps.

Beautiful sky photos. I love them!

It is so difficult to capture those colors in the sky. The earth makes some amazing made technology just cannot keep up.

Brrrrr. We've been in the teens at night but that's still a bit warmer than you. We try to keep Jan warm too but there's a lot of her. Course there are a lot of us, but she should have gotten a bigger bed so we could ALL fit!

Hope your mom is okay.

Hi River
Your mom took some great pictures. I love the salmon and different hues of grey together.
You do a great job working, keeping your mom warm. I hope your mom will be less tired once she figures out a routine and some shortcuts.
Love Ruby

We think the bird poop is very artisticly placed in those photos, bol. Good job, that is something H-Mom would do too! We sure do understand about being glad to have a job, but being tired and not so happy about the circumstances. H-Mom is being put from a minimal base salary plus commission to a MINIMAL hourly wage plus commission (and there are no sales these days) ... it is such a measly savings for the company, but it really is demoralizing.

Give mom more kisses and hugs when she come back from work. That will help to take all the stress away from her.

Lovely pictures of the sunsets! Our favourite too! Hope your mom takes some time for a breather. All work and no play is no fun at all.

The mom of the house here likes to sunset photos too. You are right when you take the photo it just doesn't catch the true beauty of what the eye is seeing.

Life With Dogs said...

You have big beautiful sunsets!

Xsara ... said...

Very beautiful pictures!!

By the way, I think there was a little misunderstanding about our new puppy. We're not getting a great pyrenees but a pyrenean shepherd, a very small and nervous little creature :)

Oh River, I'm so sorry your mom has to work so hard. And who knows when the economy will get better? But I'm glad she has you, and beautiful sunsets...

Your pal,

Hi River
You look very happy smelling stuff with the pack. Give your mom a lick from me when she comes home tire. The sunset is pretty. Even with bird poop.
