Hi, I have the blues, but the wrong kind of blues.
It is the final day of January and we are feeling the chill of another Chicago winter…this is what my flower garden looks like today. I guess on the bright side there are no weeds to pull…
This is what my hot tub looked like at 2PM this afternoon, you see it started snowing at my house at 11AM, and another 6 inches has fallen since I took this picture. I have paid kids to shovel my driveway 2x — I am doing my part to stimulate the economy !!
This is our pine tree, it does seems to look at home in the snow. not sure what is more depressing tonight, the snow or looking at my little smudge pot that must certainly be ruined because I did not pack it away for winter, because I always truly believe that there will be 1 more good night….
This is the snow flying in front of my neighbor’s house. It looks very cold out and not a hint of blue in the sky, in fact I do not think we will ever have a blue sky again……
These are my cats – Chopper and Scooter, who are totally convinced that life “on the other side of the door” is going to be a much better deal than what they have.
If I were in Daytona right now, I think that it would be a good boat day. I would even agree to bring a sweater and not complain. I would be by Ponce Inlet sailing along — wind in my hair, sun in my eyes, it would really be wonderful !!
See New Symrna Beach in the background? There’s a great place for lunch there somewhere, I could be sitting in the sun with my shoes off right now…..toes in the warm sand….
Sun is reflecting off the water and sparking…and there is blue all around me,
Wait………. come back…. don’t leave without me !!!
I need those kind of blues !!
T-12 countdown to Daytona is on, we are flying out on Feb 12th. !!
On February 1st, we will officailly have the count down to the 50th running of the Daytona 500
