Real Home Theater

Staying at home and catching up on some much needed zzzzzz's is fantastic.  This morning I didn't get out of bed until......well, it doesn't really matter does it?  Who cares?  This isn't Facebook.  (Unless of course you're reading this from a Facebook link - in that case it was after 10:00 AM).

Anyway.....all this to say that I haven't been out very much except to wander out on the balcony.  This is the best balcony EVER!  No kidding - there's always something to see.  It's almost as good as real life.  I feel just like Gladys Kravitz checking out the neighbourhood.  But honestly, mostly I was just admiring the view!

Scene I

See those bright lights?  The other night they were shooting a movie right across the street. (I don't know who "they" are.  Probably really really famous people).   I didn't even have to get out of my P.J.s to watch what was going on.  People with huge lights, being pushed around inside the apartments........  Fun.  All I needed was some popcorn.

Scene II

Today it rained.  It was sunny, but it rained.  OK, you can't tell from the photo.  You'll have to take my word for it.  See?  No people....just view.

Scene III

The rain was followed by a double rainbow which we all know is extremely lucky!  If I was dressed I would have gone out to look for the pot of gold.

Scene IV

Rainbow vanished, and the night sky was a blazing orange.  Orange at night is a sailor's, that's not it.....

Scene V

Night falling once again.  Oh good - I can go back to sleep.
I doubt if much will happen for the next 8 to 10 hours.  Probably not even in 12 hours.  I'll pull the blinds down just in case.

PS  There was a traffic accident too but I didn't have my camera handy.  Damn.



  1. I am totally jealous that you can watch all manner of things happening from the confines of your balcony. I currently live in suburbia on a small lot with lots of big trees.

    Very cool pictures, Susan. What a lucky shot on seeing the double rainbow and the pictures with the clouds...amazing.

  2. We had big trees until this latest move. I loved the trees too - the different look with each season. Will let you know how the balcony looks in the winter - maybe great, maybe way too windy to go out!
