a picture is worth a thousand words

yet, I don't have a camera. Mine broke. Well, really even if I did have one I wouldn't have had it with me while taking out the trash.
We have a lot of boxes of cereal in our pantry. Since we're moving in a little over a month I've been trying to use stuff up so I decide a week or so ago that I would not buy any more cereal until this is all gone. Slowly boxes have been emptied out. This morning we finished off the dregs of 3 different boxes and consolidated two like cereals so now we only a few a boxes left. I gathered up the empty boxes and other kitchen trash and bagged it up to take out.

While I was walking out to the trash I was thinking to myself what cool, breezy weather we were having. Not at all unpleasant. The sky is gray, which I don't mind, and the trees are gently blowing. I got the trash out and turned to come back inside when I heard an engine noise in the sky. We live by several airports and one military base so this is not unusual. It was a small plane. I always look up to see what's flying overhead. This was small, two wings, mostly gray but it had a red tail. The clouds were mostly gray and were moving in the same direction as the plane. It was a neat picture to see this little splash of red and a plane outlined against a moving sky. If I had a camera I would have tried to catch it. I probably would have missed:)

Now I won't forget though and it took me less than 300 words :)

Now- this is the best part of blogging. You get to journal such experiences, plus you have the added benefit of sharing it with others. I love moments like that- where the circumstances are just so and they leave such an impression on you.
