One of my favorite blogs is The 7MSN Ranch. I love her photography, her animal family, her frequently funny videos of, say, relocating a rattle snake from her back porch (!). She (re)posted some gorgeous sunset pictures the other day and a stat of how many sunsets she's watched from there.
As we were coming up on our farm and family anniversary, the fall equinox, the maths were pretty easy to do for here. I decided I'd copy her idea, go up on Stella's hill, take a sunset picture last night celebrating our 13th anniversary, take off my shoes and socks and count up the days.
Of course that didn't happen, but that's okay. I'm more likely to take a sunrise picture anyway. Stella gets the great sunsets. I get the great sunrises. So, today is the 4,745th (basically) sunrise I've watched from our back porch. Thankfully with no rattlesnakes ;-).
A happy anniversary!
