Another Saturday has rolled around and it is time for Snapshot Saturday again. This is hosted by At Home With Books and the lovely Alyce. I am loving this link up for two reasons. One reason is that I love the photos that everyone is sharing each week. Second reason is I’m finding so many more bookish people with blogs! This is all in all way too much fun for me. When you’re finished there, please visit AHWB to look at some great snapshots and meet some interesting new people. Oh, yes…leave some comments, too.
There is a bit of back story that needs to be told for my snapshots (two this week) to make sense.
Those of you reading BCDC for a while know that I’m a sucker for a good sunrise or sunset. Those here for Snapshot Saturday probably know that already, also. The first photo is fairly straight forward. A beautiful sunrise. It’s funny that when Ralph and I were in New Mexico we talked about how New Jersey skies in general couldn’t live up to New Mexico skies. Over the last few months our sunrises here in New Jersey have been just beautiful. He says that New Jersey doesn’t want us to go so it’s putting on a show. I appreciate the show but…no…that ploy won’t work.
I love it! Gnarly Tree making an appearance. This was just beautiful.
Here’s where the explanation needs to come in. We live in what used to be my Grandparents’ house. It was a tiny cottage that was built on to, to make it a tiny house. When my Grandparents lived here, they needed air conditioning. Instead of blocking a window in the living room, they had a hole cut in the wall next to the window and the air conditioner was installed there. When I moved in, I had central air conditioning installed. Obviously, the wall unit needed to be removed but we’d be left with a whole in the wall.
Ralph came up with the solution. As a surprise for me, he had a leaded glass window created to fit into the hole. It’s wonderful and I love it. When the time comes for us to move to New Mexico, the leaded glass window will be removed and come with us.
After photographing the sunrise that I showed you above, I sat back at my computer and continued working. Something caught my eye and I looked to the left. I realized that the sunrise was coming through the leaded glass window and the window next to it. Unfortunately, my camera wouldn’t capture the color coming in the regular window, but did catch it coming in the leaded glass.
That was a rather lengthy explanation for one photo, but I thought it was necessary. I hope you all enjoy it. I just love it!
Be sure to visit At Home With Books for more Snapshot Saturday!
Happy Saturday! Look for the sunrise!
