Sunrise

Nel sent me a Starbuck's gift card
in the mail,
and one day I got up early,
got my coffee and raspberry loaf,
and drove up over the hill to see the sunrise.
It was such a wonderful sight.
The sun rises early here, around 6:00.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Have a nice weekend.
It's been a hot summer, sometimes
in the 100's, 
and just trying to stay cool.

Sheri, Your children know what you like, don't they ? I loved the sky shots. You know I enjoy seeing the sun rise and also set of an evening. It's good to start our day with a nice coffee...hey and a treat is always good. I saw on the news this week...that drinking coffee will make us live longer. Hooray, some good news for a change. I hope you get a cool down there. We have low humidity today and I am going outside to sit on the porch today. I will read and write letters. Blessings to you, enjoy your day honey. Love, xoxo, Susie

I watch the sun rise every morning. It's a miraculous thing. LOVE your pictures. and that raspberry loaf looks scrumptious.

Yep...we have been hitting temps with the heat index of around 97, storming now. Great pics of the sunrise. Being retired I don't happen to be out on the way to work and see the sunrise. That was sweet of Nel to send you a Starbucks card. I have not tried the raspberry loaf but I love raspberry so I will have to try that.

Beautiful sunrise and the coffee and cake look pretty good also.

It's been hot here all Spring and summer. I sure hope that August isn't as hot, but I am afraid that it will be.

Hugs,

Such a sweet gift from Nel, Sheri. You expanded that gift with a another gift of a beautiful sunrise! That raspberry loaf sure looks good. Starbucks has such great goodies! It's been very hot here as well, but with a storm last evening the humidity dropped. Thank goodness for air conditioning. Have a beautiful weekend. ♥

Golden sheep are walking out in the field. Do they want to have a cup of coffee at Starbucks, too? Have a nice Sunday.

What a thoughtful gift for you Sheri, and you made the best use of it. The sunrise was stunning, especially the first picture. Matches the raspberry cake! Keep cool, it sounds awful hot over there.

You are an early riser, just like me. The sunrise is one of my favorite things to see first thing in the morning. Yes, it's been high 90s here, and today we're supposed to be cooler, but these are perfect days to stay still, pensive and let summer embrace you. Have a super day my friend!

Very pretty, Sheri. Yesterday my son, his wife and little CJK went through Starbucks (on their way somewhere). After they got through the drive-thru CJK said- Hey- what about a Starbucks for Nana? (I always take CJK with me if I am taking him to pre-school). LOL...My son went back through the line and drove 7 miles back to bring me a coffee (oh---and a muffin). Love my Starbucks.

Love even more that kids remember we love Starbucks! xo Diana

Debby said...

Oh my I'm on a diet - you almost tempted me. lol

We've had 16 consecutive days of over 100. Right now it is 106.

Pam Jackson said...

Oh Sheri, I got the craving so I went to Starbucks after seeing your blog....and the raspberry swirl is GREAT. Thanks for putting that suggestion in my head.

Carla from The River said...

A special treat. I love how you captured it all, even the sweet treat.

We are going to try our hardest to wake early this week to see the sunrise over Lake Superior. We have a getaway planned. We all are looking forward to it.
I will be back soon my friend.
Carla

Susan said...

Wow, Sheri. Gorgeous photography! Holy smokers. You got up REALLY early to go to Starbucks first and sunrise second. You are an early riser. Did you get the Starbucks card for no occasion? How thoughtful of Nel. Thanks for all your sweet visits. Hope your week is lovely and cooler. Hugs. Susan

Arti said...

Wow Sheri! This is such a wonderful beginning to a day. Fabulous pictures painting a happy picture. Sunrises always fascinate me, yours is so inspiring! Thank you for sharing.

Karen said...

Glorious orange sunrise!! Your breakfast looks delicious.

Stephanie said...

Oh, the sky looked like your yummy raspberry loaf, my friend :) What a delight to enjoy coffee while watching the beautiful sunrise.

And what a JOY to pop in for a visit. How I have missed you! Thank you ever so much for the incredibly sweet comments on my blog. It brings a smile to my face to know I am missed. Bless you!

Much love to you, Sheri!

Sara - Villa Emilia said...

What a wonderful morning, Sheri!
Gorgeous skies and trees and coffee and raspberry loaf! What could one hope for more? :)
Hmmm, we could take some of your hot air here and we could give some of our cool air for you...
Big hugs!

Doreen@foxdenrd said...

I'm a sunset gal, but wow Sheri, what beautiful sunrises you have!

Good Afternoon Dear Sheri,
Beautiful sunrise my lovely friend and just like you I wake up early.
Living in California you have the very best of sunrises. I remember growing up in Idaho and the magnificent sunrises over the Mountains. I think living in the west is magical Sheri, and I hope someday we can find our way back that way...
Thank you for this treat.
Love,
Jemma

Linda said...

You truly made the most of that gift card, turning it into something much more special than sitting in a coffee shop.
