Me On A Monday - January 22nd



Hello & good morning - a brief check in on this fine day. 
 
On Sunday it was mild enough to take a walk outside or at least I thought it was mild, after only 20 minutes the weather changed from sunny to foggy, the wind picked up & the temperature dropped - well at least I got a brief walk outside - lots of deep breathing. The last 10 minutes of my walk were at rather a brisk pace.  

The last couple of days have been above zero so some of the snow has been melting.  I'm not too excited because the forecast is by mid week more snow.
 

On this brief walk I saw a number of things that made me smile & I must admit I was looking for such things for the WSPH.  I saw on someone's front lawn at least 50 wood skunk cut outs.  These type of lawn ornaments are placed there to celebrates someone's significant birthday, such as 50.  They made me chuckle a little.

The other things I found to smile about was since it had been milder the snow turned to good packing snow & perfect for building snow things such as this snow cat.
I also saw that this tree ornament, which I had posted about in the summer, was still wearing her Christmas attire.  While I don't want in any of my trees, Tweety made me smile.  Mr Man says that such things making me smile is a symptom that I have been inside too long.   Could be.

Don't forget that next Wednesday the 31st is the mid-point link in for the Winter Photo Scavenger Hunt (WPSH).  For the links please visit either  Eileen or Joy to join in and/or see what others have captured.   

One thing that doesn't make us smile is that tax season is upon us & we loaded up the tax software for 2017.  April 1st comes ever so quickly when thinking tax ...

 
 Hope everyone has a good week ahead.  May you all find 1 or 2 things to make you smile & chuckle.

  2. Those skunks are fabulous! I've never seen anything like that before.
    Our snow seems to last 48 hours at the most and that's enough to make us complain - I don't think we'd last long where you live!

    1. I've seen pink Flamingos for milestone birthdays but I also think the skunks are the cutest. Weather is the great equalize in any conversation regardless of where we are ... Mother Nature is certainly playing havoc worldwide this winter.

  3. We had unseasonably cold weather for a while, but the snow here is gone and highs are back up in the mid 60s F. I'll take it! :) You found some delightful sights on your outing. Love the skunks lol

    1. It poured rain all day in our area & yet just an hour north in snowed all day - really depends where on the "mountain/escarpment" you are. It's a crazy winter so far - too many extremes.

  4. My biggest grin came when I read Mr. Man's comments! I think all of us who have experienced the deep freeze followed by lots of snow have been inside WAY too long! I spent some time outside this week with two of my granddaughters. Watch for a Take Three post on Thursday!
