Then it was Thursday.....Oolong Tea,Apple Pie, and Moody Blues...


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
For my friends down South and Out West, I will keep sharing Snow Photos with you...it is so cold here, the weathermen are saying that it is colder than usual....So I am so lucky that this winter I have an actual Heater that works....today it is so frigid and windy....and the house rattles and shakes and the animals hide under the blankets....And then Xena my cat who is losing vision....I figured out in a way she loves the snow, because it illuminates the birds for her, they no longer blend into the leaves and foliage....There is plenty down below...everything from Prop8 to Gulf War Syndrome, to Hillary to Monty Python.... Have a good day.....( and yes, I will be here writing).
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Moody Blues :: "You and Me".....beautiful video...soothing...

Hairball..that sounds so lovely...20 something is not really okay..and with the winds....well..I will stop whining..and go eat Pie..that was always the plan....nice warm pie to take my mind off the outside...the snowstorm is due to tonight ( the big stuff not the little blanket of white we have right now..)

;-)

Beautiful snow scene!

I love the Moody Blues...have all their albums.

It's cold here but thankfully no snow!

Hairball said...

Mmmm, pie!

Dada said...

Great photo, E. It's the kind of pic one sees adorning greeting cards heralding the arrival of the holidays.

But, brrr, I just had a chill down my spine. And next we have pics of the first great snow storm of '08 to look forward to? (Or is this the 2nd, 4th, 7th?)

Dada::
ahhhh, thanks..( see those empty houses are good for something after all... sigh)...

Yeah.It is supposed to start snowing....tonight, like the serious "feet" kind....and snow through Saturday...there will be more celphone photos....( and I am still on my quest to photo Ice-sickles...)

Hairball::
yeah...that poor pie...we decided we need to eat it fast....before it went bad..yeah...that's right....cough.....

Maui::
thanks ;-)
me 2 I had all of their albums for years.....they were so amazing...and still are...timeless..

Agi said...

You had snow while we had fire here in California.

enigma4ever said...

sorry Agi..
I have been worried about you all out there..you okay?

( I had a post up earlier in the week about sending Red Cross money....thanks for reminding me....need to find 10 bucks ;-)

what ever 'cold' is ailing you..it's been wafting here this afternoon. Of course I doubt it'll become as cold as where you are but brrrr..when it's windy and cold, it's just so much more miserable then when it's 'just cold'. From my Ottawa, Canada days, I remember waiting for the bus (when hell was definitely freezing over) and I thought this shocking thought; "I'm going to freeze my toes off"!!!
Holy cow...when it's cold you can be so much more miserable then when it's hot..at least you can find shade or something..and get vitamin D to boot with all that sunshine..
I'll have to show my son this picture, he'll love it..
hope all is well E..have been thinking about you..
hugs

Ingrid

Drinkin' the double spice Chai tea here....
we had rain today, blustery winds.

The Obama people are really ramping up. Getting all kinds of correspondence from them, asking for more input on future issues, & feedback on how the volunteering went.

They ran a brilliant campaign, and the whole new leadership concept is soooo hopeful.

Just so cool they are embracing & utilizing technology for good.

I love that they are gleaning ideas.

Yay!

You know the cycle.. snow so magical & pretty at the beginning of the season. Enjoy it.!

Fran said...

Wow! Beautiful photo montage & tune

We had a little sn*w here, but not enough to do more than make the car windows annoying on the way to work.

I am SO thankful that I managed to avoid any sn*w or ice storms coming home from Florida last weekend. Some folks in Kentucky think that sn*w on the ground means it is time to play Demolition Derby on the interstate!

Enigma thank you as I miss snow and like Agi says, we have fire instead. UGH! I will have to live vicariously through you if I'm to experience winter, I guess, so keep the pics coming. Can't wait to see icicles. We used to eat them as kids, even though they were full of dirt from the eaves. Oh well... extra minerals, eh? YUM!

And, who doesn't like PIE!! Did you have ice cream with it or is that too summery?

Torrance Stephens - All-Mi-T said...

i cannot stand the cold - let alone snow lol

Blueberry said...

Moody Blues - lovely. The "leafless tree in Asia" was an anti-VietNam war sentiment according to interviews I've seen/read.

Our cat, Henry, has also lost some vision. He is a little old man who also has asthsma and arthritis. We must keep him very warm.

Snow is beautiful in pictures, but I do not miss it in real life one little bit.

Friday Night 10 PM...

Phew...back..the high winds knocked out our internet for 24 hours...I was dying to get back online...sorry folks...

Blueberry::
ahhh, Henry and Xena would probally get along great....she is old....grumpy....likes her pillow on the window sill- I have given her my whole bedroom- with everything arranged just so...I know she can't see at all- we call my room the Princess Room....with much light and pillows and food at the ready....

I know not everyone misses it...but maybe if I treat it like art I will appreciate it more...right ? ....sigh..maybe....

Torrance::
I hear you...me2 ..me2..( love the snow photo of you and your little one....so sweet)....

Helen::
ice cream ;-)

{{ never too summary for ice cream ;-) }}

and yes,,,,,more photos to come- the one ice shot is over on ENIGMA CAFE....but it came out too dark...I will have more to come...and more snow ;-)

Sewmouse:::
ahhhh Kentucky derby....and I am so glad that you got to Florida- little winterbreak...lovely...it is still snowing tonight....so windy last night nothing really stuck....but tonight it is sticking...very pretty...but very cold......

Fran::
yeah...the photo montage is so soothing...sigh....about Obama's folks- I know I have a bunch of emails I need to sit down and answer this weekend...good for them for embracing the energy and ideas that fed his campaign....very much a good thing for all of us -to still feel a part of Change.....hmmmmm chai tea...lovely idea...

Ingrid:::
lovely to see you..behind on the writing- thanks to cable/internet out for over 24 hours...bummer ;-(

but back tonight...winds not as fierce tonight....hmm, up here by the great lakes- could see how that could be like Canada...I will keep posting the snow photos for you and your kids..they might like them....have a bunch for christmas too..many hugs lady...hope all is well down there...
