Snowy Sunday Night.......63 Days to Go....


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Tonight the snow is falling....softly...quietly....like powdered sugar....I took my little yellow dog for a walk as it just started to fall....she was excited, full of anticipation....sniffing the flakes in wonder...smiling. I had just finished getting all my winter work done....the storm windows, the AC removed from the window.....All the porch and garden pots put away....The Leaves all still on the ground, yet to be raked...beautiful collage of colors....The First Virgin snow always reminds me of Dan Fogelberg...this is the song I hummed as I walked the dog...a little Christmasy...but easy to hum as I ate a tangerine walking the dog....Winter wonders...small wonders...

(I am still trying to get my schedule straight...and muddle through....more later....)

Hey how it going. That Prop 8 stuff stinks don't it.Now I'm not a religious bigot but the Mormon Church has got to be stopped.They were behind this.How do you hurt Mormons? Answer don't send money to Vegas.Most of the casinos are owned by Mormons.In this economy a boycott is a dangerous thing.Take care E.

Falling snow is beautiful & one of my favorite things to do as a kid, sitting on the radiator cover, in the dark watching snow fall, silhouetted by the streetlight.

Take care, friend

I miss snow SO BAD!! Here, we had smoke instead. Lovely.

I know, I know... I don't get to complain about year-round summer but it's boring me and it's way too hot for fall the last 2 months, even for here. So, I envy you. And that's that!

:)

HelenWheels said...

OH I also always loved that Dan Fogelberg song as well.

Helen:::
ahhh..you all have winds and smoke AND Heat- watching the news- the heat and the fire....and the Devil winds...if you want I could mail you and Ingrid some snow ; -)

Fran::
I can just picture you sitting on that radiator...watching the snow...such a nice picture...
;-)

Ingrid::
maybe I should make that First Snowball and mail it to your son ;-)
and yeah, I can see where you don't miss the snow after a bit...ahem about moving ( did it in 2007....moved in snowstorm and 10 degrees below zero.....it was very very interesting...and I think I don't need to do it every again ;-)

mandt::
hey there....to you and that lovely dog I am sending my snow your way ;-)

Hairball:::
hey there...*** sending some little magic snowflakes your way ;-)

torrance::
love that photo....so sweet...hmmm, snuggling weather....ahhhh, that is what is missing....hmm, I better start working on that....hope it's warm down there....

KID::
hey there..yeah,...the Prop 8 stuff I don't get how something like that passed....there ought to be laws Protecting love...and people that love each other....Love and Healthcare should be protected Rights....otherwise the "pursuit of happiness" really is an empty meaningless phrase isn't it??......
as it is now...Only SOME have access to healthcare and ONLY some are allowed to love....It's 2008 it's time to join the Modern World and treat OUR people, all people better....take care friend....winter has arrived here in Ctown....

enigma4ever said...

BTW Kid::
did you see even here in C town there were Prop 8 protests this weekend.....so even here folks get how insane it is...( and can someone explain to me HOW Mormons managed to do this?????from another state???HOW can that be legal???)

sigh...the Insanity...

Cool blog, makes me think

Fresh snow is pretty. Old snow is yucky. Hope it stays fresh & fluffy for awhile.

About Prop H8, equal rights etc, I think society is in bad need of a dose of 21st century. We should've left all that badness behind by now. Time to catch up!

As far as mormons owning all the vegas casinos, well I just gotta laugh -- certainly not the biggies! those long ago passed into huge corportocracy. growing up in vegas, we used to joke, italians owned the casinos, jews ran them, & mormons provided law enforcement (maybe legal cover would be a better phrase). okay, things have changed somewhat since then, but I can guarantee you that casino workers & even some owners LDS tithing did not finance Prop H8. They got plenty of worker bees tithing from all over CA, the West & the World to finance that piece of work. Disgusting.

Snow??? It was 93 degrees this afternoon where I live.

enigma4ever said...

RJ::
Maybe I should mail you some snowballs too ;-0

DK::
oh my I hear you...HOW do we stop them ???and bring the NEXT Century forward for all of us...I have no idea..it boggles my brain...I mean it- what does the the Mormon Church gain from this ??? It 's not like Plural Marriage will be leglaized because of this.....ot THEIR marriages will be viewed as MORE valuable...????there is another side of this though- that it also delegitimizes ALL other relationships and families....even single parents....and it legitamizes descrimination....and what about Church and State issues- I guess that is all thrown out too....I am sick about it...

Steve dear:::
you have been here before- not just in a long time..nice to see you....I am an Apple Woman- but you know you can visit anytime..

Enigma, I just downloaded this song with Pepsi points. I'll be enjoying it for the rest of the year. You know I just love your music, so I was wondering if you'd mind if I tagged you to share your music preferences with us? Feel free to decline, but I bet lots of people would be interested. I sure would.

enigma4ever said...

Oh Border..
you are so sweet...I would love to participate...I am getting back on track here...but during the Election Campaign I started that Obama music blog..and I really liked posting music of you all..and now I have all kinds of wonderful new musicians sending me music and CD's and videos....and I love finding music...( truth be told, I would love to be DJ...sigh...)So I will head over....

thanks ;-)
