An Icy World Arrived—-Sunday, January 7, 2018

Although it’s nice and warm inside, outside the winter day of a typical January has returned.

Last night we had a skiff of ice transforming our extremely dry land into sharp shards of miniature ice.

A stiff wind is shaking the branches of the Blue Spruce adorning our house and fringes of ice are slightly dripping off our metal roof.

There really wasn’t anything to call snow, but it is a moisture of sorts.

I’m not surprised

While working outside Thursday, we (Terry and I)  saw a Sun Dog.

In three days time (the sky prophecy announced) cold weather will descend.  Even colder weather than you are experiencing right now.

But what did surprise me…is there were two Sun Dogs in the sky!

That evening (Thursday) as the shadows turned to deep blue, the sinking sun transformed the sky into an amazing burst of light; I could see the snow clouds gathering way over on the Plateau.

By Saturday night (after a beautiful day of sunshine) I could breath cold in the air…colder than normal.

And I hoped some much needed moisture.

We got some, enough to settle the dust in the air, and damped the soil.

That’s better than nothing.

Looking at a Rose Colored World—Sunday, January 25, 2015

GlowTerry and I were outside splitting firewood yesterday as the day started to end…colder air was descending and the sun was sitting.

kkkkWe still wanted to do a few more logs and I still needed to haul the nightly load to the house and fill the wood box.

As we worked the sky started filling up with the most amazing, scrumptious, delightful rosey glow.  It started out as a very pale pink.

tttGetting brighter and brighter as we finished up.

vvvvI hurriedly filled the wheelbarrow and pushed my heavy load to the house, then leaving the wheelbarrow right next to the back door I grabbed my camera and ran back outside!

yyyLight like this doesn’t last long…a few minutes at the most.

RG And I wanted to be in the light, surrounded by the light…a complete part of the light.

RoseAnd I wanted to share it with you!

The world is a truly stunning and beautiful place!
