A Sack of Diamonds
Sunrise is happening later each morning.
This morning was clear and beautiful.
But also, this morning, I was faced with taking Missy into the Vet…she has not been well and hasn’t eaten for three days.
Anyway, she is in there for the day and I am at home keeping busy!
Coming back home, a journey of about eight miles, I stopped several times to take photos…it is really such a beautiful day here in the west of Ireland!
Mature Beech trees line the road that sweeps along the edge of Lough Key.
Stretches of blue water can be seen from the car.
I have to drive back into Boyle to collect Missy at 6pm.
The day continues fine, so the journey will not be too stressful.
I remain on an emotional tightrope and I’m not looking down!
Last night there was a half-moon in the southern sky.
At 5am the sky was a black velvet sack of diamonds.
The moon had set and the sky was illuminated by stars…endless stars!
