This morning when Charlie and I went out on the patio the sky was so beautiful. I had my zoom lens on my camera, so I didn’t get wide shots.
There were so many different layers and shades of blue and white filling up the sky.
Charlie’s Blood Test:
I take Charlie in for his blood panel testing at 12:30. Doc is always running behind due to things happening that aren’t scheduled. So I don’t know how long it will take.
But Charlie is getting better it seems to me. His appetite isn’t quite what it was. But then if he loses a little weight it helps his other conditions.
I’m still enjoying the “Shetland” series on BritBox at night. I watch an episode and then I read a few chapters of my book.
Jimmy Perez On Shetland:
I’ve found that Jimmy Perez, the lead character in Shetland, grows on you. His accent, his expressions.
Jimmy Perez seems down to earth. He has stubble on his face from not shaving too closely. He looks just like any regular Joe.
Though he appears strong and committed to his job and doesn’t scare easily, there is a certain vulnerability about him that is touching.
Those of you who’ve watched the show probably know what I mean.
The Short Life Of A Morning Glory:
You only get to enjoy the beauty of a morning glory for one day and then it’s gone. These have many shades of blue and white like the sky photos above.
Somehow the blue and white morning glories also remind me of the ocean.
I haven’t been to see the ocean in ages. But in my head I can still hear the crashing of the waves.
I looked up the what causes waves.
Wave Energy and Movement
Ocean waves can be caused by three things. One cause is gravity. Gravity from the moon and sun pulls on ocean waters. This causes the tides.
While it appears the water is moving forward, only a small amount of water is actually moving. Instead, it is the wave’s energy that is moving.
And since water is a flexible medium for energy transfer, it looks like the water itself is moving.
Regular patterns of smooth, rounded waves in the open ocean are called swells.
