To celebrate the birthdays of those of us born this month, we planned a dinner at Glorias at the Harbor in Rockwall and had quite a good turnout, about 15, including guests.
At the beginning of the meal, I lifted my mojito to give a toast to the crazy wimmin as well as the FedEx and UPS guys who make us so happy when they deliver the goods. Happy Birthday to Lorraine, Debbie, Ijeje, and yours truly.
Unfortunately Debbie never made it to dinner as there was a terrible wreck on I-30 that had traffic backed up for miles and she sat in traffic for 2 hours at which point she was able to head home. We missed you Debbie!
Tess brought homemade chocolate cupcakes and arranged them on the table. Each birthday girl had a cupcake with her name on it and a candle and there were extra cupcakes for the rest! Thank you Tess for making this dinner so special and for all your hard work. The cupcakes were decorated with flowers and butterflies. (She is so talented!) And they were so yummy!
The drapes to the dining room were closed to keep the bright sun out and keep it cooler, so we chatted, took photos and enjoyed our meal. By the time we finished, we grabbed our cameras and headed outside to find that we had TOTALLY MISSED the sunset.
It was GONE…as in, below the horizon. So the joke was on us crazy wimmin.
We did however shoot the remaining light in the sky and learned another important photography lesson. Even when you think the light is gone… keep shooting (preferably with a tripod). There is still some magical light left in the sky!
