Hi everyone. Happy new week.
My past week has been fairly quiet. And definitely colder. Late autumn has become early winter, but it's not so cold I can't get out for a morning walk.
Yes, we had a bit of snow last week, and this is what's left after a day. The building above is the maple sugar shack down the road from my house that will remain closed until spring when the maple sap flows again.
And this next photo shows how my backyard looked for a couple of days until the temperature got high enough for all (or mostly all) of the light snow we had to melt. The sun is just low enough on the horizon now that the ground is starting to freeze and the afternoon shadows come early. We still have a few patches of icy snow in spots too.
I realize some of you might have lots of snow or very cold temperatures, and I know it's not just my area that has become winter.
I met my walking friend on Friday at the beach. We haven't beach walked since last spring, and it was great to go back. We also went out for lunch afterwards, but of course I forgot to take any photos. Therefore, I'm going back a couple of weeks for T Day. This week for T, over at Bleubeard's and Elizabeth's blog , let me share this photo of cups on a giant cup.
On one of my 2+ hour drives down to check on my mother while she was still hospitalized, I was driving by and decided to stop at a Chick Fil-A as I wanted something to drink on the way home. I bought a large Diet Coke, which for some reason came in this styrofoam cup. (I've never had styrofoam from them-usually it's wax coated paper.) I'm not a fan of styrofoam, but the drink was so large I had it all evening at home also. I also thought the printed cups on the styrofoam in my T day photo were fun.
And speaking of my mother, thank you to everyone who left kind words and thoughts last T day.
And speaking of kind words, I received this gorgeous card from Carola.
Thanks for the wonderful note. It was much appreciated. And I love that flower image too. I think I even have this stamp tucked away, so now I'm inspired to dig it out. Smile.
Thanks for visiting my blog, and have a wonderful week. And for those of you who celebrate Thanksgiving on Thursday, I hope you have a wonderful day.
