Looking at the Sky on Friday

Being that I have missed the past couple of Fridays and Tisha's fun new meme, I thought it was about high-time I got back into the swing of things and posted a picture of the sky as seen from in front of my old house for what was most likely the very last time when I took this picture Thursday afternoon.

Looking at the Sky

Yesterday was very windy with clouds of all sorts marching across the skies but I thought that these were rather appropriate as in the midst of the dark clouds, a white cloud was shining through and I'm going to take that as a sign that things are going to go very well for Amanda and I in our new apartment. Granted, I managed to throw out my back while finishing up the cleaning at the old place yesterday when I bent down to clean off a baseboard but it just figures that I couldn't get out of there without one final backache considering that's the place I lived when I first started having back problems!

At any rate, the keys were left on the counter along with a final check for the old landlord (half-tempted as I was to not pay him at all due to the lack of hot water for several months) after I took lots and lots of pictures to show that there was no damage to the place and that it was left clean just in case he follows through with his threats and takes me to court. Suffice it to say, the guy was not happy when I called in the Building Inspector's Office and he got written up for quite a few code violations but I never would have called had he just fixed the hot water like I asked him to do. He even threatened to evict me if I weren't gone by the move-out date of February 15th that I gave him! Are you kidding me?? Oh well, I think that was just fate's way of telling me it was time to move on to a nicer place with a nicer landlady.

Once my back starts feeling better, the next step is to get my life unpacked from all of these boxes that are piled up in the new place and then start taking pictures of the sky over my new home. Maybe I'll get lucky sometime and capture a rainbow overhead!

Don't forget to pop by Looking at the Sky on Friday and check out some other beautiful views. I know for fact that one of the pictures you can see is of a gorgeous full moon over Georgia just by going here. Feel free to tell the blog owner that I'm jealous!

Speaking of blog owners, hop on over to Asara's Mental Meanderings and wish Carrie a happy birthday on this Friday the 13th! Hopefully she'll have a lucky day full of wonderful things as well as a fantastic year to follow! Happy Birthday, Carrie!!


  1. Happy Birthday, Carrie!
    You did the right thing moving out - I could not stand a landlord like that :o)

  2. love that blue sky so lovely and impressive.

  3. The blue you captured in yesterday's sky is spectacular, and the single white cloud is indeed a good sign for you two!

    Your now ex-landlord sounds horrible.

    Hope your back is getting better.

  4. Sounds like you did everything the right way when leaving the old place.

    Congratulations on your new home. Cover it with your beautiful photos, and you will have inspiration all the time.

    Great blue sky!

    I am so glad that you are out of the old place, at least! Now you can get back into the swing of things when your back feels like it!

    Thanks for taking the time to play with us. I love the little sliver of white in the sky.

    Have a great weekend,

  6. A real silver lining!

    well done thinking ahead on taking pictures upon move out....I'm so glad you guys got out of there.

    (hope your back heals up soon)

  7. Linda, a gorgeous blue sky! Excellent shot for Tisha's meme! :)

  8. Linda, Norwich always looks like a million with your pictorial style, you make the city look great!

    It is fitting that the beautiful sky is over your previous abode. It clearly signals that you are the recipient of clear skies and future...The bluest sky is for you, not the coot you used to rent from!

  9. so glad you are in the new place now... relax and slow down.

    smiles, bee

  10. What an interesting sky!
    Congrats on your new place! ;o)

  11. I hope you see a rainbow as well....

    Wow Linda! Praying things go better for you in your new place with a new landlady and that your back will heal quickly. I'm sure your back will appreciate hot water!!! Love that one little white patch in that dreary sky! :0)

  13. That old goat threatened to evict you? What nerve! I'm so glad you found a new place with hot and cold running water. It's the very latest thing!

    Hey, that moon is the same one over your house! Maybe you just need to talk sweet to him while you photograph him! ;)

    I hope your back feels better. I'm beginning to feel nearly human. That flu thing is just awful. Seriously awful.

    Happy Friday the 13th and Happy Weekend!

  14. Nice picture. I'd take that white cloud as a good sign. Good luck at your new place. Hope you see a rainbow soon!

    Thanks for stopping by mine. :)

  15. Great shot and nice sentiment. Your landlord: Some people act like jilted lovers when someone does something they don't like. Glad you took the high road!

  16. That is a striking blue sky.

  17. I have a feeling your new place is going to be very lucky and happy for you Linda. :)

  18. As always, another great photo.

    Hope your back problems are solved soon.

    Glad for you and Amanda in your new abode.

  19. feel better! take it easy

    I love that little white cloud, so tiny yet he's hanging in there :)

    Beautiful photograph today ;--)
    Hugs and blessings,

  21. Love the blue sky--hate the bad back thingy. Get better soon!

  22.'s amazing how many shades of blue you can see by just looking up. Beautiful photo.

    Sorry to read that you've hurt your back again. At least you can tell yourself that it was sacrificed for a good cause...leaving that nasty ol' landlord far behind.

    I hope you rested today and you're a new woman tomorrow (or at least your back feels better). ;)

    I've tagged you for a photo meme here if you want to play.

  24. Hope your back feels better soon and that you enjoy your new place. ;-)

  25. Hi Linda,. you have a pretty sky. It is a little dark, I'll be it is a lot brighter over at your new home. Best wishes on finishing the move and move-in.

    My ex has every picture we ever had together, if she kept any. (We eloped so no wedding pictures.) The kids have given me a few now.

    You were a cute 'blushing bride.' Thank you for sharing.

    Thank you for peeking in on my sky 'Looking.' I had these nice sky pictures and just didn't want to waste them.

  26. Beautiful shot! A happy Valentines to you!

  27. That's a rather strange sky, with only one white cloud, but it looks beautiful !

  28. All the very best in your new place. I wish you health, wealth, happiness and blue skies. :)


Thanks for visiting!
