We had five dear friends over for dinner tonight and the weather cooperated beautifully. It was one of those June evenings where the sun's lemony light seems to slant in from the West at such an angle as to make everything it strikes look its most beautiful.
As the sun fell, the planets rose. We enjoyed several hours of viewing Jupiter and five of its moons.
We talked and laughed and languished in the long arms of the gentle evening. And we weren't the only ones enjoying the pleasant, bucolic setting....
Here's a toast to good friends Mary Jane and David, Zane and Margaret, and to Shila. And to our dear friends near and far. May every evening you enjoy be as lovely as this one was for us.
