About Me

My photo
Recent retiree--35 year's experience teaching reading, English, adult basic education and volunteer leadership skills. Started this blog to exchange ideas and commentary with friends and others having an interest in joining the discussions. Greatest life accomplishments include: 1.organized my 3rd grade class to check out library books for me to get around librarian's weekly limit--Amazon.com, the Mullins Elementary 3rd Grade Class of 1956 is still waiting for "thank you" notes; 2. volunteered in the Peace Corps, island of St. Kitts, West Indies; 3.taught adults to read, earn their GEDs., and speak English as a second language; 4. bought a border collie puppy for $6, got evicted rather than give him up, and began a life-long love affair with all things "Dog"; 5. joined a physical fitness boot camp in my mid-50s--don't mess with someone who's been doing regulation pushups in wet grass at 5:30 a.m.; 6. walked across Northern England with best friend Sally--over 80 miles from the Irish to North Seas; and 7. travelled to many foreign countries for pleasure and work.

First of the Month - Great Balls of Fire!

This photo shot on June 1 at 8:30 a.m. pretty much tells the weather story in Kentucky over the last few weeks. We went immediately from a cool, rainy May to hot humid days with temperatures hitting mid-90s for too many days in early June. Could someone remind the weather guys that we're supposed to have four seasons, not just winter and summer?

For the past six months I've been scanning Kentucky skies, camera in hand, in order to participate in a year-long photography meme that attracts aspiring photographers from all over. The idea is that we look at our surroundings and record the changes from month to month. The host for this meme is Jan at Murrieta 365 . Here's how it works: Jan is calling her new meme First of the Month. Here are her directions: "The goal is to capture one thing repeatedly on the first day of each month. It can be a landscape, a person, an animal, a project; whatever your focus is fine. It can be a record of where you are each first day of the month." I decided to photograph Kentucky skies.

Check out Jan's link above for some photographs of people and places from all over on the first day of June.

Beautiful, Faye! Janis is right, your weather pattern sounds just like our weather pattern. Sigh.

We had a beautiful cloudless sky yesterday, but today it's grey and drizzly. Where did our summer go?

Faye said...

sayre--it's the shock, Just a week earlier had the furnace on.

janis--thanks re photography. Still don't have photoshop installed so this is straight from camera. I want a better camera and more know-how before August travels.

church lady--have you had the pontoon out yet? The weather's right for sure, isn't it?

debs--I was going through some English garden tour photos from May-June '95. Lovely weather then--how different it is all over in recent years.
