I, like many others, ventured out last night to witness the “huge moon” phenomenon! A perigee moon is quite a sight to see.
I was, it seems, moon-struck!
I even was able to take a photo or two with the camera the kids got me for Christmas.
Hope you all enjoyed the view in your corner of the world.
Slowly melting snow and ice
Winter is waning
Winter is wreaking havoc here in my little corner of the world. When I woke up this morning, the air temperature was about 10 below.
It has managed to inch its way up to 16 out, not quite a heat wave, but at least it is working in the right direction!
Up next, a big bowl of homemade split pea soup and some fresh, hot, homemade crusty bread.
If it cannot be warm outside, at least I will be warm inside.
This was the scene that greeted me when I woke this morning.
We are again blanketed in snow and more is on the way.
While it is bitterly cold out, there was something strangely comforting about the hushed stillness of the morning.
Plus, after being outside to snap a few photos – a steaming mug of hot coffee was all the more appreciated when I came in!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
This was my first visible sunset of 2011.
A nice end to a weekend that found me trying to get over the Mother of all Colds.
Sometimes, a little sun is the cure for what ails you!
