  13. Didn't mean to cheat (whatever that means); I made a mistake when I was preparing the post for publication and ended up running the thing before the meme is up. Do forgive an honest mistake!

  16. Dramatic and full of promise, Sandy!

    Blogger often ignored my wish to schedule a future post and published it early, but better early than late, I always say!

    I may play along today, since I don't have photos of my brand new baby grandniece to put up yet!

  29. I always cheat... apparently. I mean, I wait for linky, obviously to get the link, but I do my regular post like I do every morning, except on Thursday it's a sky watch post. It's up, just not linked... I don't think that's cheating...

    Beautiful shot!!! Really gorgeous. Reminds me of Celine's "A New Day". :D

  33. Hi Sandy ~~ thanks for stopping by my SWF.
    Your name interested me as I don't see "Carlson" very often. I have a friend since childhood whose maiden name of Carlson.

    Love you sky, and scrolled down and enjoyed your blog.... I will be back Sandy "Carlson".

  49. Hello! I am currently writing a poem that is inspired by a phenomenon, but I dont know the exact name of it so now Im stucked!

    And then I visit your blog! This picture is exactly what inspires me!
    What a coincidence, isnt it? Now please if you could tell me the name of this phenomenon wherein the sunlight is outlining the edges of the clouds?

    I know there is a name, I just couldnt remember it :(

    To visit my poetry blog, here it is: LITERARY WORKS 101. Thanks!
