An Idyllic Winter Week
This has been just about as close to a perfect winter week as I can imagine. It just kept snowing gently all week long. Sometimes the sun popped out. There was almost no wind. Even that morning with the snowblower was ideal. The snow was buttery, and not blowing in my face as I sliced through it with the machine.
So I thought I would show you some images from all through the week. I missed taking pics a couple of days; sorry!
Sunday a cute little gray squirrel track, hopping across the ice in the creek, top to bottom
Monday Maggie pauses beside the sumac trees with fluffy snow coming down
Friday another view of the northernmost stretch of open water in the cemetery creek
Saturday that amazing pink light spreading across the landscape at sunrise
Sunday blue sky above snow-covered branches when the sun came out
I am spending the night at the rotating homeless shelter tonight. Just a small effort to do my part at helping. Oh... and it's snowing again!
Pink, Blue (and Red)
