snow covered maple  Snow  provokes responses that reach right back to childhood. – Andy  Goldsworthy

We have been blessed with a winter’s wonderland.  It didn’t make bad driving conditions because temperatures had been in the seventies right before the sudden plummet.  This is the kind of snow that I love.  Not dangerous.  Just beautiful!

snow covered balcony I had another post prepared.  It explained in detail a few other ‘accidents’ that have fallen upon us – husband injured his knee, a cat attacked both of my hands and forearms, Gretel got sprayed by a skunk.

But it sounded a little whiny.  And I still think we are lucky.  So I nixed it.

Have you ever done that?  Have you spent a lot of time and energy on a post and then thought – what a bunch of crap! 

snow covered rose arbor  I’d rather focus on the beauty of the landscape and the fact that I didn’t lose my arms, hands, or fingers.  And mother is improving, while we are hopeful that Tony won’t need surgery for his knee problems.

snow covered cypress  I thought these trees looked they belonged in a Dr. Seuss storybook.  What do you think?
