We had a foggy drive to do a job yesterday. Then, while we didn’t have the West Texas wind for our two outside shoots, it was only 40 and brought a chill to my old Texas bones. I basked in the warm of the memory of this lovely Monarch taken in Big Bend last summer. Bring on the heat.

Ah the weather outside is frightening
and the cat Mindy is as bored as me.
She briefly allowed me a little time for photos, but was generally bored with the whole human concept of using a camera.
We both made it a short lived exercise and she returned to her purrs and I my chair and good reads.
enjoy the cold and sleep as much as a cat…en theos †† jim
As we headed to visit family we were debating about not traveling all the way. It had never got about 20 degrees most of the day and was cloudy but dry. We checked accuweather, the weather channel and the local forecast. All telling us the snow would stay north and not fall here. So we stopped. This morning this was the view out our hotel window.
Texas weather, if you don’t like it stick around. ††† en theos ††† jim
It was a very chilly start yesterday. Sixteen degrees, but the sun chased away the chill and by late afternoon the field was warmed by the sun.
Enjoy being in the light! ††† en theos ††† jim

It is only January which means for us at least another couple months of winter. I know for you who live in colder climates are probably saying “So”? But, I am so ready for warm weather and the return of birds, bugs, blooms and all the beauty that comes with the warmth. I just can’t seem to appreciate the winter and the cold. As I get older my bones & body ache a little more than usual and I have a hard time even exposing my hands to hands to the elements. Call me a wuz, I’ll get over it…..and then it comes to mind that the cold is just another tactic that resistance uses to keep me from moving forward.

I think it really has nothing to do with weather, but more to my giving in, finding justification and excuses for not doing the work……en theos†††††jim
The sun did return yesterday, but was in a battle with a cold wind to reclaim the day. The snow evolved into 2ft icicles that clung to the west side of the house.
Here today, gone tomorrow, Mr Harrison said it in more melodic words.
