He has a funny face!

Day 31 


Flo-vember is a pile of sand in an upside-down hour glass. My time is up. Finished. Now, my only comfort is a husband, a lap full of cats and Christmas lights. My view spans a yard full of naked trees with crinkly patches of leaves attached to spindly branches like a balding man clinging to his last tuft of hair. Last summer's perennials look like dried-up, grizzly arms reaching up from a frigid grave. Snow clings to the recesses of tree-pits like a milk mustache. There's a few birds shivering somewhere - I think. On a brighter note, I might find some sand if I dig in the right place. Lake Harriet maybe? Ugh. At least I have my souvenirs.

 My photos!

Basically, it's horrible out there. Do I sound like a Minnesotan? No. I was meant to live in Florida.

Sharon, I feel your pain! We've had 6 snowstorms in my part of Colorado already! This winter will be a long one but I'm trying to do all the winter "hygge" things to enjoy it ;)

Love the photo of the sea shell.. I love to walk on the beach and collect seashells. Where did you see the seashell?

DJan said...

All your pictures are (to me) incredibly well framed and thought out. I love the funny bird face. :-)

I have to admit that I LOVE living in Florida and I don't even live on the coast! The weather is so mild and it's so SUNNY year round! You got some amazing photos and I'm glad you had fun. LOVE that pretty crab and the funny face! Come back soon!

Angie said...

Sharon - I can't decide which I like better - your photos or your prose describing the not-so-warm scene outside your windows! Fabulous writing, and I can't stop laughing at that bird! Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!

Your photo of Funny Face would make for a sweet painting. :-)

Hang in there, and let your photos and memories transport you! You have some beauties here. I've never seen a spotted crab like that.

Sharon, come back! We just got here and the weather is great. I realized just as I clicked that I linked to last weeks party, I think I’ll link the same post to this weeks tomorrow, if you don’t mind terribly. I am suffering from jet lag (we’ve only been here since Thursday at 1 am, but at my age it takes longer to recover. ). Last week I posted pictures of people, not places .
