Yesterday the sun came out for a while, and we all rejoiced. Shortly afterward, the clouds rolled in, but surprise ~ they dissipated by mid-afternoon. Beautiful!
I sat outside in the sun for a bit, which felt really good. I cannot walk on the property right now – too treacherous. The snow is frozen and is about 12 inches height in most spots. You can walk along the top of it but you never know when a leg will go through to the bottom. Not a good feeling ~
So I sit inside by the kitchen window and wait for a bit, or sit outside if it’s bearable enough. The driveway is still tough to navigate, so I am still limiting my excursions out into the world. Tomorrow, however, it’s back to work and back to business as usual. I am really looking forward to it after five days off.
Here a few photos taken yesterday.
Female red-winged blackbird.
Thanks, [Kerri], for confirming my hunch.
I am not even going to tell you this one.
I have said it enough.
I went to the movies today to see The Monuments Men. I cried, I laughed a little, and I left the theater feeling good. Highly recommend.
I saw a lot of previews that left me wanting to put my hands over my ears and close my eyes tight. I can’t stand loud, bomb-blasting trailers. Am I showing my age? I mean, it was just SO LOUD.
This is a panorama shot. I created it in Photoshop using two photos I took with the camera turned sideways (lengthwise).
And then I took a couple of portraits of my buddy.
And being really careful where he walked on the snow. At any given second, one paw through the snow would go up almost to his shoulder. It’s only about 12 inches or so, but it feels like so much more when you’re walking on it.
Here’s hoping for a good week to come. For all of us ~
Thanks for coming by.
