WEATHER HAS TAKEN ITS TOIL

January 27, 2014

The weather has taken its toil on the intra-structure of the city. Underground water pipes are breaking and we are running low on salt supplies for the roads. Can’t wait for the cold spell to break. No pun intended. BE ENCOURAGED!  BE BLESSED!

TAGGED “C” – CARDINALS

January 24, 2014

The weather has been so cold, minus 10 degrees below zero with no end in sight, here in Pittsburgh.  It was a joy to see and hear these beautiful cardinals gathering around the bird feeder.  They reminded us that spring is just a few months away. A Cardinal In Winter A sunny cardinal in the […]

SNOW TRACKS

December 18, 2013

THE SNOW TRACKS Five boys, playing in the woods one winter day, decided to see who could make the straightest set of tracks in the snow.  They were very careful to put one foot directly in front of the other, but when they had crossed the clearing, one track was curved, one track was crooked, […]

YYY CHALLENGE: YOUNG DEER

March 25, 2013

I know you are thinking, “This is not a picture of spring”!  That is just what I thought when I woke up this morning and found snow everywhere.  I thought, “Come on, Phil said we were going to have an early spring”.  Yea right!  That’s what you get for trusting a groundhog.  Some people are […]

February 5, 2013

I had some minor surgery on Monday morning that has left me a little foggy and a bit tired.  Nothing serious.  The surgery was scheduled and done on an out-patient status.  I just didn’t know it would put me out of commission like this. I am sorry that I have not been able to answer […]

LOST OF COLOR

January 7, 2013

It’s winter and my clock has lost its color. Gone is the yellow sunflower. But the color is safely stored inside, my heart. Warmly and patiently  waiting for the first sign of spring. BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!

TRAVEL THEME: SOFT

November 10, 2012

SOFT LIGHT ON A SOFT SNOWY NIGHT It was February 6, 2010 and I didn’t have to travel far to capture a beautiful soft winter wonderland.   The time on my camera said it was 12:14 am.  I don’t know what awaken me, but I looked out my back window into my yard and I […]
