Terrific Tuesday

The switch from Daylight Saving Time back to regular time has my Darling Doggie Dallas a bit confused.

These days, when he first goes outside to greet the morning, it’s not stars and nighttime sky we’re seeing. It’s the beginning of a sunrise.

Even though we’re getting out about the same time as previously.

Monday morning’s edition was a doosy, too.  Just see for yourselves:

Between 6:15 and 6:30 a.m., Nov. 5, 2012

Just a few minutes later, same date

I know red skies in the morning are supposed to signify the approach of bad weather, but who wants to think about that?

Not when there are such beautiful colors, all painted together and offering the promise of a new day.

Maybe we’ll try getting up a wee bit earlier next time, so we can catch the whole show!

  1. What does a pink sky signify? That is beautiful! And thank you for linking that video! So magical and pretty. You started my day so nicely. I’m going to head out the door for a little jaunt….the sun’s not up yet and you’ve inspired me.

    • I think the old saying is, “Red sky in morning, Sailors take warning.” It means, of course, that bad weather is on the way. Problem is, not being a sailor I don’t know when the bad weather is supposed to arrive!

  2. Debbie, I once dated a guy who told me the pinker the sky, the more pollution in the air. To this day I don’t know if there’s any truth to that. What I do know is that this is a beautiful shot. I call pink skies, “cotton candy sky.” Poor Dallas. I wonder what our furry friends think of all these changes. Roxy sleeps through the morning and doesn’t go out till around 8am. By then, it’s already daylight and thankfully, no confusion ensues. I loved your pictures! 🙂

    • Roxy lets you sleep in?? Oh, are you lucky! Darling Dallas starts squirming by 5 or so, but I pretend I don’t hear him and he goes back to sleep until 6. I hope he never gets to the point where he truly can’t wait, heehee!

  3. Beautiful sunsets just give you that “anything is possible and we are all connected” feeling. Wonderful pictures. Terrier…sleep until they hear breakfast being served and Rascal wishes I wasn’t such a morning person. 😀

    • Thanks for the kind words. I didn’t know that about terriers, having never been owned by that breed. Shelties, I think, must be morning dogs. Dawn’s girl Katie is up at 5:30, I believe she said. Dallas probably hears the birds and thinks he has to go herd them out of the yard!

    • Actually, all through college I tended to be a late-night person. When I started working, I turned into a morning person (especially after having to be at work at 6 a.m.!!)

  4. Early morning skies offer the most beautiful scenery of the day, I think. I’m often up early enough to see a full moon or bright stars. And I’ve seen some beautiful pre-dawn skies and sunrises too. Yours is sure pretty!

    • Thanks, Terri. I kind of miss seeing the stars and the moon, even though we’re getting up at the same time. I guess I shouldn’t worry, though — as fast as we’re losing daylight, I’ll seen them again before long. Thanks for visiting!

  5. Beautiful sky! To me, that’s worth getting up for. I’m usually on my morning commute during sunrise, so I don’t get to take pictures. (I generally avoid taking pics while driving on the freeway :))

    Thanks for sharing your pictures. It’s hard to get up early to catch the whole show, but I hope you can do it.

    • I’m glad you’re not taking pictures while driving, Janna. Isn’t it funny (in a dangerous sort of way, of course!) how many people are multi-tasking while they drive, though? I’ve seen women putting on mascara (!), men using an electric razor, and all sorts of things in between (when I was part of the commuting crowd, that is!)
