It’s bitter cold and sunny outside today. A crisp, bright world, intensely interesting. Here are some things that have captured my attention:
I doctored these shots a bit, which I rarely do. There’s so much to explore in photography, even when you don’t have the latest equipment.
My mother sent me this last night. It evoked those happy tears I told you about.
Steve brought a book to breakfast that my mother and father would love. It’s called The Superior Person’s Book of Words by Peter Bowler and includes such delightful entries as:
“CALEFACIENT — a. A medicinal agent producing a feeling of warmth. ‘Calefacient, anyone?’ you inquire as you pass around the cognac.”
I am creating, with Steve, an Art Trivia Game to be debuted at a dinner party at Steve’s sister’s house celebrating Chinese New Year. I will also be baking almond cookies to bring to the affair. The first effort is challenging me to be humorous and inventive. The second will require that I follow instructions precisely. I’ll let you know if I succeed at either of those. I do know that I’m succeeding in keeping myself entertained!
Be warmed and be well, my friends. It’s a wonderful world we live in!
Ooh, those photos are beautiful!
Thank you, Katie Louise. Your Flickr account is full of amusing and beautiful shots as well!
Lovely photos, lovely words and your mother has VERY good taste in youtube clips…don’t you just love David Attenborough…he IS a national treasure..
I do love David Attenborough. On our first date, Steve revealed that he was one of his three heroes…it was a great first date!
Well done Steve! great taste in Heroes and obviously in women too 😉
These photos make me want to curl up by a fire and watch snow fall…
Me, too! Wish I had a fireplace….
That’s the one thing I reget about this house that I bought 2 years or so ago.. no fireplace. Ah well you can’t have everything..
