Mr Blue Sky

55 Degrees and a blue sky today….LOVE this weather!  I played a little with Topaz Impressions on this one.



The Frozen Man

I think a snowman counts as a frozen man…but this is Nebraska’s style of a snowman lol    Since the high temp of the day is 6 degrees I think he counts as frozen!   More snow coming tomorrow (not much, but still UGH!)

Winter Has Me In It’s Grip

Well, today we had the coldest day we have had in over a few decades.  It got down to -34 with wind chills.  I felt like this frozen fountain…


WinterhasmeinitsgripIt is a wonder this fountain is still standing!  The lights are even still glowing under all that ice!


Hazy Shade of Winter

Welcome to 2014!  Well a new year and a new start.  I didn’t do so well at the end of last year with blogging, but I still gained so much out of the experience (once again) and continued to make new friends.  So in my mind, my challenge was a success!  So, I guess I am crazy enough to do it again for a 5th year.  I am starting the year out with Simon and Garfunkel’s Hazy Shade of Winter.  That is how my New Year started.  I woke up to snow falling and a hazy fog (not to mention freezing cold temps)…but that didn’t dampen my day, still had a great New Year’s day with family and friends!  Happy New Year Everyone!  Looking forward to following your year in music and pictures!





Bogy is hating this rotten weather…first it snowed (and he hates getting his feet wet) and then is is bitterly cold (and he just got a haircut).  When it gets like this I carry him outside and he stands in the same place and does his business and then I have to carry him in.  In this instance, I walked to the door and called him and all he did was stood there and stared at me with that pathetic face.  Naturally I ended up going and carrying him in.  Who has who trained?




In My Yard

I took each of these pictures separately in my yard then combined them together in photoshop elements 10.  I know you are all getting sick of my bird and squirrel pics, my goal this week is to get out of the house with my camera, even if for an hour!
