WHY DIDN’T I THINK OF THAT?

You know what this picture is don’t you? It’s a picture of the actual process that creates white horses!

We’ve all been thinking “inside the box” and using snow to make snowmen, or snow women whereas mother nature doesn’t even know there’s a box to think inside of. She just stacks up the flakes and creates white horses!

Everybody stay safe and stay warm out there! This is going to be an interesting day or two.

DANGER IN DUCKVILLE!

Doesn’t this duck family look sweet? A beautiful day, beautiful water equals…DANGER!

This duck is either the father or the mother…regardless, as you can plainly see, it is going to “the dark side”.

Every time the beak, or bill, got lowered toward the water bad things happened.

Mean things.

Running on water things.

It’s time to leave things.

 

Would Shakespeare even read my missive?

Have you ever been stuck in a closet?

It’s a question I thought I would posit.

Could you escape in a minute?

Or would you relax and stay in it

Writing to Shakespeare, a sonnet.

(Oliver asked me to tell you that he did get out of the closet very quickly and yes, I need to practice learning how to spell my last name.)

 

Giving Thanks.

This handsome fellow strolled through the yard today, just as we were about to sit down to share our Thanksgiving meal together. It seems that I see a buck every few years on this special day of the year.

I’m so thankful for the creatures of the woodlands that remind me that there is wonder in the world. I’m beyond thankful for my family and friends and for the special people in the blogosphere that continue to enrich my life.
