Late Summer Sunset

After a little bit of rain from the outer bands of “Harvey” earlier today, we had a stunning view of a orange/pink-purple/blue sunset from our North Texas frontyard.

One of the many reasons, I love Texas: The Lone Star State has the best sunsets.

“♫ ♬ Take Me Out To The Ballgame … ♫ ♬”

Since we go to another game (Texas Rangers vs. Baltimore Orioles) at the ballpark today, I wanted to post a blog I wrote on a different page last year. I love ballgames. It is nice to relax, watching a good and game and hear the guy screaming: “Hotdogs!”, in the ballpark. 😉

August 28, 2016

Today, I celebrate another birthday. Since I enjoy watching local sport teams, Kevin (my husband) went with the girls and me to the Texas Rangers vs. Cleveland Indians baseball game. This is our second game we visited of this season. The first game, we visited about four weeks earlier at the End of July.

The game of the Texas Rangers vs. Cleveland Indians begins in the Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas.

The Sun was high in the sky; the game went on; and all of a sudden Kevin was holding a baseball in his hands. 😀 Kevin lost some weight over the last months. His fingers got a little bit thinner. And the anniversary ring was flying, while catching the ball. But the ring was found by a lady two rows down, a little bit later. Oh, thank goodness! Because, this was a scary moment. Kevin handed the ball to Katelynn. And now she’s the owner of a baseball played by the Texas Rangers.

Katelynn is the proud owner of a baseball played by the Texas Rangers.

What a day to spend my birthday in the ballpark. 😉

Here is the video, which shows what happened in the ballgame, before Rougned Odor threw the ball in the stand, and Kevin caught it:

Blooms In My Frontyard In July

Last night, we had a thunderstorm coming through North Texas. Sometimes, wind gusts went over 50 mph. It brought some cooler air with it, which was so appreciated this morning. The temperatures were more comfortable in the lower 70s, than in the muggy mid 80s. This was a good opportunity to sent Katelynn and Sara out to clean the pool in the backyard. The storm dropped quite few leaves in the water. The pool had to be taken care off, before algae set in, and we have a perfect habitat for mosquitos.

Since the Texas heat is relentless at this time of the year, the plants were happy to get some good amount of water as well. Between some brown (that’s due to me neglecting my frontyard a little bit lately), I have some flowers blooming in the frontyard. My crape myrtle began to bloom, while I was down with a virus, last week. It was a welcome sight, after being in bed for a few days. ❤ And I’m happy, the milkweed began to bloom as well. Soon, the Monarch butterfly will be on its way south, again. My yard will be a good rest area for the Monarch Highway. 😉
