Early morning gift, another batch and pure bliss

The rain stopped just as I got to work, one early morning, a few days ago.  And this lovely rainbow appeared, like a gift.

At home, lovely vegetables waiting to be put in another batch of Alice Water's Ratatouille, which was so delicious and made my home smell so good, that I had to make another batch.  The avocados were just hanging out here waiting to be put on toast or in salad.  :)

And at the park, friend Janice's dog, Chili, enjoying a blissful roll in a puddle.

Don't you wish you could be free like Chili?

That last photo is a classic. Pure bliss.

I was watching a video and was interested to learn that if you see a rainbow whilst in a plane they actually appear as a complete circle. That must be an amazing sight too.

Rainbows are always a gift.
But that blissful roll is just gorgeous.

Your counter of vegetables looks like a beautiful still life painting. I'm going to try the ratatouille recipe in your link. I'm still searching for a good one.
Some days I feel like Chili : )

Hello, love the pretty rainbow. The veggies look delicious, the meal sounds yummy too.
Chili is a cute doggie, reminds me of my old Goldie Girl. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

Hey, that photo of the vegetables...I would enlarge that and frame it, it is like a gorgeous still life painting, it is beautiful.
OH! Just look above and see that Leonora said the same thing. That means it is true! :-)

Ratatouille was also a favorite recipe when we lived in VA and had lots of garden veggies.

Love the rainbow. I never get a good clear photo like that. Wish I had an avocado. You can definitely say that Chili is chillin'. LOL
