Sunny Saturday

It was a gorgeous day yesterday!  The SUN was out! It was spectacular and I am sort of disappointed to say, such is not the case today.  I see little snowflakes floating down out there, so once again- grey is the color of the day.  Oh well.

I have a lot of stuff I want to do today: first and foremost removing signs of Christmas from the house.  For now.  I would have had it done by now, but a certain sicko has been firmly entrenched in my livingroom for the last 3 days.

Now I am sure that it was no fun for him, either, but I couldn't walk through the room without that pathetic voice wanting something.  Oh brother.  So, regardless, I am cleaning up today.  I am hoping he and the Barber can go hang out in the cabin this afternoon!

 I also plan to spend 20 minutes relearning lesson 1 of Italiano and going for a walk!  Sun or no sun, I need to get back at it.  I'll just go on the road today, get some miles.  I probably should wear my Yaktrax, but we shall see.  I know it is going to take a while to do the Christmas stuff so I need to prioritize.  1a. Take down Christmas  1b. Go for a walk 2. Italiano 3. eat lunch..... good plan so far.

I have to go back to school tomorrow, and that is good and not....   I do have to sit down and look at my google docs for work and see what the heck I am doing with everyone this week.  Believe it or not, there is only 3 weeks left to the semester.  YIKES!!  This affects my elementary not one bit, but wow does it affect my HS plans.  It seems like ages since I have been at school....

This virus has been obnoxious- I feel like I lost 2 weeks of my life.  And the coughing lingers and it is such a pain.  I hope none of  you get this.  I am not sure what the heck it was, not a cold really.  Oh well, at least I did not pass it on to any of the grandchildren.  Speaking of which - only a little over a week to Grandkiddo #4!!  Woo HOO.  I can't wait to get down there and hang out with them a few days later this month.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the sun photos.  I am enjoying putting them on here, as it is the only way I will see any blue sky until later in the week.  Oh well.

I hope you all enjoy your Sunday and find a little joy!


  1. Your photos are some of the things that you do that I like best. The photos that you post on social media are wonderful. I'm even more impressed by the fact that so many of them are taken with an iPhone -- that's amazing! It's pretty obvious that you have a natural eye for photography, unlike me who couldn't take a good photo if I was paid to do it! Please keep taking wonderful photographs.

    1. Why thank you so much Salvador! I have done photography since I was a young teenager. I remember getting a point and shoot camera for my birthday as a freshman/8th grader (something like that) and of course I was driving everyone insane with sticking my camera in front of them and snap snap snap. I happened to show my art teacher a bunch of pictures and she looked through them and stopped at one that actually was a good composition. It was from my Grandma and Grandpa's house in northern Minnesota. She basically told me to slow down and look at what I was doing. I was hooked. When I was a college freshman I think, I bought my first SLR and never looked back.
      Thank you so much for your kind comments. I am so glad that you enjoy my shots. :) And as far as the iPhone- a camera is a camera and you have to use the one that you have handy! :) I bet you could take pictures too, you have a practiced eye for compositions.
