Photo Friday: Warm Sunset and Cold Awakening

I said good-bye to this week’s vacation in California. Brrrr-umba.  I should have known better than to think I could bring it all with me.  The temperature was 10 below zero (F!) when I got up this morning.  Tomorrow’s WeatherBug predicts several inches of new snow.  Yikes! Looks like March is, indeed, coming in like a lion.  Well, maybe it will will really go out like a lamb.  Maaaaa.  

Photo Friday: Roots

Home nourishes my body. Home feeds my soul. Home comforts my fears. Home is where my strength was born. Home is where my roots remain. Last week I went home. I went to help Mom. I got so much more than I gave. I’m so blessed.

Photo Friday: Visitors at Dusk

Busy, busy…so much to do. Did I get everything? Do I have enough? Did I accomplish what I needed? A shadow catches my eye. Am I done here? Is there time? A shy stranger makes eye contact. A flagged goodbye. Or is it Hello?

Photo Friday: Febrrrrruary, Pefect for Puzzling

February is a perfect month for puzzling.  Sub-zero weather, lots of snow and wind, and still dark nights keep me in by the fire with hot chocolate in hand. (That temperature from Weatherbug is the real temperature, not the windchill.  Brrrr-umpba!) Loved-One and I put together this winter-scene puzzle.  He’s a puzzle maniac.  I got addicted, too.  So much so that when I went out, I saw the puzzle pieces or a puzzle scene in every scene I passed.   Like this home nearby.  A puzzlers dream.  Almost like the scene we put together.  There’s even a red house and…

Photo Friday: Cold Play

This week school got canceled because of another Arctic Vortex.  That means the air temperature is below zero.  That’s not even taking into account wind-chill. Too cold to wait for the school bus, but not too cold to play.   Our neighbor made this swing-set for his grandchildren.  This summer he gave it to me, because his grandchildren are nearly grown.  Loved One told the neighbor children to come on over and use it anytime. So nice to see they did. We only saw the evidence, not the children. Pretty sure children made these tracks, but I guess they could…

Photo Friday: The Value of Books

My sister-in-law took this picture of my brother, her husband.  That’s our grand-nephew cuddled up with a book. (Is grand-nephew the correct term for my sister’s grand-child?) Now I ask you:  Can you get this kind of comfort and closeness with a video, a board game, or a joystick? Books are the best.  Yesterday, I heard that reading alters our state of consciousness in much the same way as mind-altering drugs.  Surely, books take us to a whole new dimension.  If we’re lucky, we take someone with us. I feel warm and cozy inside just looking at this scene. Related…
