Day's rest

I took a walk this evening after putting the boys to bed. We had a nice rain this afternoon, leaving everything glistening and alive. I looked around me and realized I was living in a work of art.

It was cool and quiet as I walked along the road. I love the quiet that surrounds me at dusk. I think it's my favorite part of the day. I love the way the colors change when the sun is setting, the green turning to emerald and the yellow turning to gold. I love the sounds of birds settling in for the night, the smell of the dark warm earth, the feeling of rest after a long day that descends over the prairie.
