Winter weekend mix ahead & Windy Wednesday

Leave a comment

I was telling my better half earlier today, that I would take the Xmas tree out this weekend. I did that a few years ago and this happened that day. And now that I look at the weekend forecast I see a possibility of a dusting to several inches of snow. You rarely know what you’re going to get here in the great state of Maryland. Weather like medicine isn’t an exact science.

So I might get a repeat photo-op this weekend of the above scene. I hope so. I always feel a bit like that child just wants to hop out of me and run outside in it. That is one thing that I remember as a youth just now, I can see the spot I used to lay in the back yard making a chorus of snow angles side by side. And then I could look out the kitchen window and see the impressions for days.

I remember the quiet and stillness at night when I would do it. A very interesting feeling indeed. And a good one.


Sat here shortly after midnight Wednesday morning listening to the wind howling outside my office door. The temps really dropped this evening also. I really don’t like wind especially when it’s coupled with cold. I had hoped to get out and do some weather related images but never made it.

Been in this down type attitude all day. Letting a few things get to me which I shouldn’t so going to try to turn around the attitude this evening. I’ll have lots of time to try wind/weather photos tomorrow again. Guess I should charge the camera batteries, cold weather takes a toll on them.

So here’s to being in better spirits tomorrow and getting my backside out of this comfortable house.


Random Thoughts of the Day

I managed to resist the urge to Taco Bell.

I must have one of those nasty conversations tomorrow where a vendor has screwed up again. I guess they didn’t hear the first salvo. I’ll use the MEGAPHONE tomorrow. And I’ll have to make sure they understand the word termination if they choose not to listen tomorrow.

It takes me a bit to recover from setbacks. But far less time than it used to.

The more time I spend away from family and friends the cranky’er I get.

Reading is to time-consuming, but enlightening.

I envy those with the ability to relax well.
