Subway Stories: Walking in the Moonlight

This week has been mostly uneventful. But that’s actually a good thing. I picked up some more freelance writing work that I’m very excited about. Yay!

Even though it’s been mostly from home to work and back again, I do enjoy the time that I get to spend outdoors in this wonderful spring weather.

Moonrise over tree

Especially when I get to see the moon rising as I walk to and from the subway.

Renovated Government Center MBTA station

I finally saw the renovated Government Center T station. It does look nice, but there is a surprising amount of construction still going on around the subway station.

This pair of orange bikes caught my eye. For a long time I’ve considered orange to be my protective color.

The moonrise is brighter each night as we approach Saturday’s full moon. Such a beautiful natural light in the sky behind the lights in the buildings.

Those moon rays lift me up with the light. A marvelous night for a Moondance. Do you ever dance in the moonlight? 🙂

Pantone Color of the Year: Sunset After the Rainbow

Pantone Color of the Year 2016

The rainbow that I captured last week was gone within minutes. I kept taking pictures though. This is the picture after the rainbow as the sun was closer to setting. The trees were cropped out, so the focus is on the color of the sky. Sanura commented that the sky was the Pantone color of the year. She was right! I hadn’t even noticed.

Instead of one Pantone color of the year, there are two! Serenity and Rose Quartz are the colors for this year, according to the company that has set the “standard for color communication and inspiration since 1963.”

Looks like they pulled these colors straight from nature. I wholeheartedly approve!

Lemony Sunset Pancakes

lemon sunset pancakes
You know by now that a gorgeous sunset gets me every time. I’m really feeling the lemony yellow colors, so it makes sense that I tried a lemon ricotta hotcakes recipe this morning. It didn’t work out for probably a few reasons. They were edible, but meh. Lately my experiments with pancakes have not been the best.

What I was trying to recreate were the Lemon-Ricotta Pancakes that I had at Cheesecake Factory. A friend and I had Sunday Brunch there about a month ago. They were so good and I haven’t stopped thinking about them since.

You know that I’m all about being a home cook and don’t really eat out as often as most people would expect for a food blogger. But this is one instance where I’m perfectly happy to not make these pancakes again, but definitely will enjoy them when I go out to eat.
