Revisiting winter2009-Walking through a Winter Wonderland

Watch the snowglobe slowly turn, as you hear the familiar Christmas tune.  I start to hum the music, and my hubby then sings the words to “Walking in a Winter Wonderland.

Yes, I’m “saving” this video baby!; As I woke up this morning and walked into the room with the Old desktop, I find my Sweetie sitting at the “puter”, reviewing video files and saying I’m going to Delete this one.  Oh NO, that’s you singing.  I’ve got a personal YouTube site that I need to upload there first and on this blog.  So Here it is!  Or at least I hope it uploaded.

I’ll Post Snow pictures from January 2009- At a little snow for an AUgust morning to look at.

Monday February 22,2010 Blue Monday & Mellow Yellow Monday

I look out my window and I still see snow.   It is about 12 days since the northeast had the Blizzard or Nor’easter and there is still plenty of snow on the ground. 

snow in my backyard beyond a basketful of blueberries

There are many other Blue Monday memes photographs to look at . at the website: 

Today is also Mellow Yellow Monday meme.

Mellow Yellow Monday-my half of the banana.

“Why did you take this picture?,my husband said completely puzzled one day as he downloaded the photos.  

I said, ” I wanted to capture an everyday moment.”   When I come down to the kitchen for breakfast , this is what I’ll find on the kitchen counter. Sharing a banana between the two of us for breakfast with our cereal.   By this time, he’s already left for work.

Winter Snow- Why Don’t Neighbors help?

Why don’t the neighbors help the oldest one on the block during snow and freezing rain  weather?  Yesterday, she could not go to church, nor Saturday evening.  She tried, but saw all that ice and snow on her car, decided she couldn’t do it  and went back inside.    I ask myself this question, why don’t the neighbors help?    Although snow shovels and even a snowblower is in the cabana,  at my mothers age she’s done her share of snow removal.  For some reason, twice this season, she would not call up for the snow removal/lawn caretaker guy. ” He doesn’t come until the next day, last year when I called him” she says.  She waits for it to melt, hoping that the temperature will raise, but since the house faces north and always in the shade, it doesn’t melt.  Thank God, that it rained heavily on Christmas eve, because she didn’t want me to visit on Christmas week and the days before because she had fallen on the sheet of ice her driveway and steps had become.

There are somewhat family members that have snow removal vehicles, but they don’t think of her.  Is is really that far? 6-7 or so miles, maybe 10.

Though I grew up here, in this neighborhood,  dare I say 40 years ago,  I don’t know any of the names in the homes where all of my playmates used to live.   During winter, hence snow, she is snowbound.
