Sun-day

The mornings have been blue as the sun comes up with the snow.

Nine inches of light, powdery, fluffy snow.

Single digits outside this morning. Yarn basket and ash bucket both full.

Kindling bucket and wood on the porch running low.
I've got some digging and hauling to do!
Time to get out and enjoy the sun.
With the lake effect clouds we haven't seen the sun for days!
Happy Sun-day to you!

I hope you enjoy the sun ...get it while you can!
I counted about 20 days or so that it was cloudy and we had inversions...
The sun lifts my spirit so much.
..summer where art thou?

Oh, Beegirl! My heart is crying out for sun for you! I know what it's like to go for days with cold clouds and snow. I love it all, but the older I get, the more I need some sun to break up! You've reminded me to appreciate it while I have it!

The darkness won't forever! Hang in there!!!

Oops.That's suppose to be "the darkness won't LAST forever."

We enjoyed the sun here today too; it makes those cold temps all the more bearable!

Be well!

What is WRONG with me that I don't mind gray and dreary skies?

I love the photos...especially the one of the snow and the teensy little flakes...how beautiful!

Misti said...

I wouldn't mind the cold if I had the snow and wonderful indoor warmth that it looks like you've got!

deb said...

Ah, winter at its finest. Love those photos!

Stunning photos…I can empathise with you as the UK is griped with snow and ice at the moment…an as usual we are not very prepared for it!
However it’s been a good time to plan the vegetable and fruit garden…to think that Spring is only a few months away!

Hope the sun shows it's smiling face for you. We've had sun but with that we've also had north wind and sub-zero temps. Yesterday we reached 32 and it felt warm. How crazy is that? High of 38 today, can't hardly wait. Instead of piles of snow we'll have rivers flowing and lots of mud. That's ok, I'll take the warm temps and whatever comes with it.

P.S. I remember having to dump the ash buckets...not a job I enjoyed as a kid.

Blue snow...it is so beautiful and full of its own kind of beauty and light. But nothing can replace the sun's power to lift our winter spirits. Even this winter can't last forever...Soon we'll be out in our gardens. Love from Maine...

And I love how you captured the snowflakes, so beautiful!

The sun came out yesterday for a short while and I suddenly realized how much I missed it!!!! Summer is coming (soon-ish)

i'm learning to love the snow. and you are right, this last one was so light and fluffy.

stay warm, just think soon enough we will be back outside in the sun dashing a million miles a minute.

lovely collection of photos. I wish we got as much snow in the eastern part of PA! Hope you enjoyed the sun.

I love the powdery snow pic!

We live with the "lake effect" too. Lots of snow and cloudy winters! Perhaps spring will come early this year. One can always hope.

I am looking forward to your bee posts. I want bees oneday soon...
