Skywatch Friday: Swift Kicks on a Cool Day

Clouds

Clouds

Mom and I froze our tail feathers off while Dell played soccer last weekend. The sky was moody broody, the sun was playing hard-to-get, and the game was good. It's nice when the kid's team wins after one of those character-building stints in the great outdoors.

  10. "Character building stints." Hilarious! Pretty clouds, but glad I wasn't building my character with you!

  11. Great cloudy day shots! But I have to echo what Louise wrote! I spent enough time watching soccer games in the cold when my kids were growing up in Montana!! So, yes, I'm glad I wasn't character building either!!

    Have a great "warm" weekend, Sandy!

  31. Very much like the skies we are seeing at the moment Sandy... Nice to hear Soccer is being played there :O) With only being 6-7 miles away from Manchester I have two great teams to support Manchester United and Manchester City... I have to admit that I now support them from my armchair.. it is far warmer, cheeper, and sad to say safer.

  32. Your skies are looking like ours this week. But they have texture and character!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Even on grey days I like this kind of cloud that looks like you could float in and get lost. :)
    Lovely shots Sandy!

  45. Wow ... amazing views. Let's hear it for dedication! My compliments to both you and your mom ... and Dell too! We've still got Santa Ana winds blowing here in So Cal (making temperatures hot and dry) but we're supposed to FINALLY get some relief next week. Of course, I'll believe 'drizzles' when the actually appear.
    Hugs and blessings,

  48. You got a great picture of the clouds. I'm glad your son's team won the game.

  49. It´s nice to see these and know that you had to freeze yourself in order to get them. It was worth it. They could use some extra lighting on that field!

  50. These photos really make me feel cold! I'm so glad my kids don't play fall sports yet.

    Those menacing clouds sure do look like they're bringing some less that warm weather with them. The things you do for your kids, eh?
