There is a very small airport quite close to my home/workplace.
On my way home I noticed a training flight buzzing the runway
and quickly snapped some photos.
A brief but dramatic sunset...

Sunday - Golden light

Despite a nasty cold I went for a ride up and over the Blue Mountain.
A hunter's cabin, view from the top and the Appalachian Trail Northbound.
The golden late day sun did not go unnoticed.

Thursday - At home

It was 61F and clear today.  
I opened all the windows and had a sorting out.

On Tuesday I organized five of my bookshelves.
Today was spent arranging my yarn and cleaning the fish tank.

Feel like I may be getting a cold so my evening will be spent
cataloging knitting patterns and drinking Gypsy Cold Care tea.

Wednesday - Monocacy Creek

An abandoned road complete with rusted iron gate and
hidden creekside cave.  As I approached a small white cat with
black spots dove into the entrance, perhaps she had kittens hidden.

The picnic area with stone and wood tables and a lovely waterfall.

Monday's bouquet and today's aster-like discovery.
It really does feels like the beginning of Spring today...

Monday - Signs of Spring

I took a long ride down along the Delaware River today.
It's one of my favorite drives with many side roads and secret
places I've been visiting for years.

There are two lambs at the top of the sheep photo.
A sunbathing friend came over to say hello, my hand still
smells of horse.

The snowdrops and aconites are sure signs that the season is
beginning to change.
Oh, the sharp smell of those lovely yellow flowers!

Yes, I did my annual 'yellow flower dance' and was not ashamed :)

Sunday - Retail Adventure

It was gloomy when I wandered into Ikea...the doorhandles of Anthropologie...
a few downtown views of Wayne, PA...a soft blue sky...the spoils!

Saturday - Jewel Tones

Morning reading and knitting, dried flowers, closet peek, favorite
shaving mug and aprons.

I never realized how many jewel tones are in my home.

Thursday, February 16, 2012


It's grey outside and heavy snowflakes are falling straight down.
I'm sure they will soon turn to rain, as predicted.

Bird song has brightened and my Mourning Doves are busy
eyeing up potential nesting sights.

I don't go into work until later so I pulled out my favorite cheerful cup,
munch down a couple of Mandarins and read a quick chapter in my book.

Hope your Thursday is lovely, too.
