SkyWatch Friday!




But it is Thursday 9 PM in Manila when I posted this. These series of shots taken 5 minutes apart around 4 PM today made my super busy day hectic. I mean today is my only free day this week and it is also my dogs scheduled bath time. Dogs have weak lungs so they can only take a bath once or twice a week. And bath time means a whole day of serious cleaning. When my 3 dogs take their bath, their whole house (which means the 3 kennels) has to take a bath too. And that includes washing all their pillow cases, mats, rugs, towels, fur brush, collars . . . and the pillows have to be air dried under the hot sun . . . I mean people think being a keeper is easy work. Not if you have to take care of Heaven which is a full-time job. My creative work (the one that pays for things) has to take a back seat. So when the skies looked like it's going to rain after a very hot, sunny day, I have to run back and forth moving the dogs wet stuff hanging out to dry in between shampooing the dogs! . . . But it did not rain in Heaven so in the end I have to water the plants, and later feed the dogs . . . do my nails, pluck my brows . . . . I mean a keeper's looks does not have to suffer with all that cleaning ;-) . . . Chk other skywatchers in here!

oh..what great sky's you have.. the clouds are the coolest!

I am feeling guilty when you say your dogs get a bath every week...I better give my poor dogs a bath,,as it has been way to long!

Jan, the dogs in Manila need a bath at least once a week because of the heat. It goes without saying that since dogs don't sweat, constant bath makes their skin dry. So, you load on conditioners. What maintenance!

Yes, moody skies all over, Sylvia. Global warming is a reality.

And J Bar, skies are always heavenly.

Thank you all!
