Frosty morning

Leave a comment

This morning, I had to pull out my insulated vest over the sweat suit. That cold weather is on the way. And as my friends say “embrace the hawk” translation – enjoy the cold. Who knows, maybe I should have a change of attitude towards winter. My normal instinct is to hibernate inside and if I have to go outside hide the women and children because the curses fly continuously.

Despite the temps in the 30s, I was surprisingly okay with it. Then again I didn’t spend a long continuous time outside. But it was refreshing in some ways in the short burst. Not on my lips which are chapped because I forgot to start the daily chapstick routine. Another thing about winter I could do without is the dryness.

I hope I get the opportunity to get out again and snap some more images and colors before the season changes the look of everything. But that creates new opportunities also.

So I’m wishing you all a beautiful morning and day ahead. Mine is about to get busy.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I got lost in the beauty of the season a few times while driving around and missed a few good photos because I kept enjoying what was over the next hill so much.
  • I made my very young grandson laugh hard yesterday, my proudest moment of the day.
  • I find it hard to say some things. I know that is difficult to believe for as much as I ramble on.
  • Props to my better half for sticking with me for 42 years. It’s hard, to sum up, the effort that probably took in words but “I love you” always was a good start for both of us.
