Oh What A Beautiful Sunday, Oh What A Beautiful Day!

February 23, 2015

Good morning.  Is this not a catchy title for my post today?   I put my own words to a line in a song from the musical "Oklahoma." 

My goodness, what a beautiful day we had yesterday.  The snow stopped falling by noon, the sun came out and the temps were in the upper 30'sF.  Absolutely beautiful!!!  Joe and I assembled the roof rake, and he used it to clear the snow off the porch roof.  What a great buy this rake was.

Joe also did his best to clear away all the ice dams on the porch roof.   This took hours, but he got most all the ice off and now we don't have to worry so much.  We even noticed a few of our neighbors were out clearing the snow off their roofs. 

So far today it is not snowing or raining, but we do have a wind chill warning in effect until 6 p.m. tonight.  The temperature right now is 23F.  Today's high is supposed to be around 21 degrees, going down to -9 degrees tonight. 

It's the Sunday weather that I am most concerned about.  Right now they are showing no more snow all week until Sunday.  EEEEK!  Let's hope that the snow waits until Sunday evening when we will be safely tucked away in Florida. 

Today I have a couple of beautiful sunrise photos that daughter Audrey took yesterday.  Isn't this a pretty way to start your day?  Thanks, Audrey, for sharing.

Yesterday I really did not accomplish very much, but I did put a few more rows on the blue afghan.  Now there are only thirteen more rows to go and it will be finished.  I would like to finish at least one project each month this year.   Anything over and above that will be super.

Today is Mandarin Orange Monday.  I have a photo that I took of a reflection in our kitchen window.  I was trying to shoot photos of the snow outside, and forgot to shut off the kitchen light.

I actually like this photo, but it is Monday so I decided to play around in Photoshop and orangify the photo a bit.  After getting carried away with different layers and filters, I ended up with this pretty piece of digital art.

Well, now I'm going to make myself a fresh cup of coffee and enjoy a bit of blog reading.  I enjoy starting my days this way, catching up on how my blog friends are doing.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all be warm and have a fabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

I like the swirly combo of blue and orange - those are powerful colors together and create a sense of harmony to me. Nicely done.

We have a gorgeous today as long as you look up at the blue and sunny and not not down at the snow. And look from inside because it's 6 degrees out. You had the better temp yesterday for your sun! It still feels nice seeing all that sun out of the corner of my eye.

Audrey does really have a great wake-up view!

I like your digi-painting for MOM.

I think I might just foll0pw your morning lead and get myself a cup of afternoon coffee now.

Good thoughts and prayers for snow LATE on Sunday!
Hugs, Nani

Must have been a feeling of wellness, a day without snow, even nice temperatures and sunshine!
Gosh, your holiday is coming up real soon now.
as you, I like to start my day with a cup of coffee and then at the computer catching up some blogs and then often a bit of designing, even if it is for an hour. It´s a way of starting a day in slow pace and getting into `doing`mode slow but steady LOL.
are you driving to the airport yourself for your holiday or is somebody taking you there=
Must think what I will do today, lots to do, but not always in the mood for it, hahaha
Have a nice day.
