A Cold Monday



Nothing exciting to show you today. I just came back inside after wandering around the yard in the freezing cold looking for something of interest and spring like to take a picture of. It's so cold that I only lasted a few minutes before I finally just settled on the geese and Bucky. Bucky's really gotten quite used to them being around. I noticed the ducks have come back to the pond and the geese don't seem very happy about it. They were honking at them and spreading their wings earlier this morning, then they just wandered out to the pasture.

It's been snowing non-stop since yesterday. Nothing has stuck, guess the conditions aren't right, but there's been little snowflakes just floating around in the air.

Haven't been anywhere really to take pictures except the grocery store and went up there on Saturday and I could have kicked myself for forgetting my camera. There was a guy sitting out in front, playing a guitar and singing. He had his guitar case opened for tips I'm assuming and I was so bummed that I didn't have a camera for the moment. It's just not something you see everyday here in Botetourt County, Virginia! It was pretty cool though, I hope he does it more often!

Did you watch the Academy Awards last night? Happy with the winners? I haven't seen most of the movies that won. I would have liked to have seen Mickey Rourke win. Was happy with Kate Winslet's win, I really like her.

  5. It's pretty cold around here (Tennessee) as well. I need to get out and do some yard work, but it's hard with the wind blowing.

  6. je suis d'accord avec toi, j'aurais bien aimé que ce soit Mickey Rourke gagne l'oscar, mais Sean Penn n'est pas un mauvais choix

    I agree with you, I would have liked either Mickey Rourke won the Oscar, but Sean Penn is not a bad choice

  11. Your right! It is also darn cold up here in PA. Haven't been out of our house, yet! It's also very windy! Waiting for Spring to arrive! I can sure do without this cold. Makes the ole' bones creak!

  12. The scene is exciting enough for me!

  13. I watched...I haven't seen any of the movies yet though, so it was hard to feel passionate about who would win. They're all in my Netflix queue--by this time next year I should be in the know...oh wait, there's a flaw there. :)

    Anyway, I enjoyed the dresses, felt sorry for Jennifer Aniston, and bored with seeing Mylie Cyrus. That's my Oscar wrap-up.

    I hope the ducks hold their ground and don't let the geese chase them off.

  14. Tanya, this is such a lovely scene for me. I'm in an urban jungle and anything with wide open spaces, greenery and animals is wonderful to my eyes. So if all you have to post is your yard and pasture, go for it! And never apologize. It may be ordinary to you, but a big blessing to me.

  16. Animals are always nice to take a pic of. And you live in a lovely place, so just post some more of Bucky and friends.

  17. Roll on the spring! Bucky seem to be staring straight at you.

  18. Hi Tanya, I love the photo. We are getting lots of sunshine here in Newport News, but cold temp. I am ready for spring! You sound like me in not having the camera with you when want one. We only have the Cannon si5 which is to big to carry around in my purse. I keep thinking I need to buy a small one but that takes $$$.
    Anyway I hope you enjoy your day
