Outside Yours Truly in Downtown Hudson OH

I was meeting a friend at Yours Truly on Monday, but he was running late. Sitting over near the windows on the south side of the restaurant was so quiet, peaceful and fun to watch the sunrise. Yours Truly is one of my favorite restaurants to meet people. It's friendly. The food is very good. Service is great. And it's very pleasant, even if the person you're meeting is late.

It's been crisp and clear for a day or so. Yesterday was a cold, overcast, blustery day. The kind of day that when you leave your car parked for 45 minutes, you have to clear all the windows again because of all the blowing snow.

I'm looking forward to more crystal clear days.

Blue skies and cold


We've had some nice low temperatures and the gutters are holding icicles now. Melt. Freeze. Melt. Freeze. Snow a little more. Now it's feeling like January!

SNOW... for a day... now rain

It snowed the other morning. I was at work so I snapped this photo from my office window.

I was so excited to see snow, I went for a walk at lunch time down the sidewalks with my head back... tempted to put my tongue out to catch snowflakes... but I haven't been too crazy about doing that since the acid rain thing got publicized.

It just seemed so magically to have snowflakes swirling around. There's nothing I like better than the change of seasons. I was looking forward to going skiing at the nearby slopes this weekend, but alas. It got warm again and now we are back to rain and damp.

I've heard next week will have some low temperatures, so I can hope for snow again.

The Playful Pets

Hot Wheels.

Christmas is over... back to "normal"

We put away the lights. And planted the Christmas tree. Put away all the santa memorabilia. Updated the Christmas card list.

Back to "normal."

Whatever that is.

An Extremely Wet and Warm Winter

Lucky is peeking out from the Greenhouse, while Jean looks at him waiting for the next round of tag-you're-it!

Notice how green everything is! The vegetable gardens and flower nursery are begging to get planted. Maybe we'll do a "hoop, there it is" with a mini tarp covering to get hte plants going early this year.

Then watch. We'll get a big late April blizzard! ha ha.

Flickr tool -- a cool collage

This is a neat little bit of code that I popped into this blog that picks up all the public photos at Flickr and makes it into a strip... or a collage like the one on the right. Pretty neat!
