Saturday Blue Sky

Today was in the upper 70's clear, sunny and windy! Early this morning I watched my deck umbrella take off and luckily land in my yard rather than the neighbor's. Reggae and I enjoyed a lovely afternoon outside, he patrolling and napping, me, knitting :-) Pain factor was minimal today with the cold front in.
The sky today, and especially this picture, had Willie Nelson singing this song in my head.
Blue skies smilin' at me
Nothin' but blue skies do I see
Bluebirds singin' a song
Nothin' but bluebirds all day long
Never saw the sun shinin' so bright
Never saw things goin' so right
Noticing the days hurrying by
When you're in love,
my how they fly
Blue days, all of them gone
Nothin' but blue skies from now on
(Blue skies smilin' at me
Nothin' but blue skies do I see)
Never saw the sun shinin' so bright
Never saw things goin' so right
Noticing the days hurrying by
When you're in love,
my how they fly
Blue days, all of them gone
Nothin' but blue skies from now on
Nothin' but blue skies from now on
~Irving Berlin, 1926

My daughters grew up on that album by Willie Nelson. They both own it today. "Blue skies, smiling at me..." I love it! Today I am off with husband and dog to backpack for a week. I hope I'll see skies as blue as your photo.
