EARLY MORNING MIST

                      Ground Fog
"Ground fog typically forms at night, when air in a shallow layer
near the surface cools sharply to its dew point, making the relative humidity 100%.It then persists for a short time aftersunrise, until solar radiation (insolation) heats the air enough to lower the relative humidity. " (Storm eyes.com)





It looked like the stream was on fire this AM

THE BLUEBIRD OF HAPPINESS

                             
                             MAYBE????

PLOP, PLOP, FIZZ, FIZZ


Oh what a relief it was....
and I don't mean Alkaselzer.

Several weekends ago,
I spent too much time on an embroidery project
 that I've been working on.
Consequently,
for the past 48 hours,
my neck and shoulders have been the reason
for major discomfort and sleepless nights.
Ice, heat anti inflamatories were of no help.

So...




I resorted to a solution
 that has helped in the past..

"Oh my", she said...
"you are one big knot from your knees
to your earlobes..."

After an hour and fifteen minutes,
I was pretty much back to normal
 except for one shoulder but I'm sure it will
come around..

Lesson learned...
Do a little at a time more often.

WINTER WONDERLAND


We chose this particular site for our home because of this view. At the time, the trees were only 4 feet high and soon will be grown together totally blocking the view. This is a building on an historic property behind us..The main house is totally invisible from our living room window now....
