Friday, it was sunny and 67. Saturday, it was snowing like crazy, complete with thunder and lighting! Sunday morning, it was very cold, but starting to thaw. Yesterday. Rain. Today, sunny and moderate and the trees are displaying their buds, but not yet blooming. I enjoyed the walk in the snow on Sunday morning, but, equally enjoy a walk in the sunshine! I can have my pick, at least this week, by just waiting a few hours. These shots, only…

Hobbs: October 31, 1999 – February 15, 2013 My heart had been heavy, for quite a few weeks, my mind laboring intensely about what was the “kind” thing, the “right” thing to do.

To all of my fellow bloggers who live in the climates where it is cold and snowy from November through perhaps March or April, I salute you and your fortitude! This weekend I am in Akron, Ohio helping my sister to celebrate her birthday. Normally, I stay out of these parts until springtime! When I landed in Akron, yesterday, it was a brisk 19 degrees. This morning, 12 degrees with wind chill of -6. Totally unheard of in Charlotte –…
