2007 has been pretty rough so far. Don’t want to go into all that. Beauty like this soothes the soul.

The old man was out plowing the driveway with the lawn tractor and took several long turns around the trees. A bright sunny day. But cold. Must be all of 20 degrees F.

more of winter

frozen chimes

A sunny day, but it was cold, cold, cold. These windchimes became encased in ice. My parents had these hung outside their window so that birds won’t fly into the window. They do occasionally and quite often the impact kills them, but the wind chimes help.

…And it did. Nearly all day long. Not sure of the amount, but it was enough. Just the perfect time for our furnace to give out, eh? We were awakened at 2 a.m. by our smoke alarm going off because the furnace motor was burning up. A chilly night was had by all. The cats ended up on top of me like furry little hot water bottles.

We made a recent trip to take our daughter and granddaughter to the airport in Seattle. For some reason, I was not allowed to drive. Just as well. We ran into a snowstorm on the top of Snoqualmie Pass. The first really hard snowfall granddaughter had ever seen. It was quite beautiful.

It was dark enough — even though it was daylight – that the flash was going off automatically, illuminating the passing snowflakes quite nicely.

Wow! November 2 and the first snowfall of the season. It didn’t stick….slightly too warm. But it’s a sign of things to come in the next months.
