This post is a double-whammy in response to "today" at Communal Global and to the prompt "thaw" over at the Sunday Creative.
Last week it was very cold here in Maine...gloves, hat, freezing rain, wind chill, and flannel PJ's at bedtime. This week we're having a bi-polar moment and it's been warm. We're thawing out. It's just an illusion, a game I fear; soon winter will have us locked in it's grasp.
Today I am hoping for good news. My car is "in the shop" and I'm praying the mechanic will call and say that this time the check engine light doesn't cost hundreds of dollars as it often does. Being car-less (not careless, car-less) means walking and shooting photos in places close to home. Here's what I found this morning when Tula and I took a walk around our neighborhood block.
Just the slightest peek of pink sky through the backyard trees this morning.
Looks like the neighbors are putting up a new garage. Their cars will be sooooo much happier, as will they when they don't have to scrape an icy windshield. Garages are absolutely NOT overrated. I love mine.
A few days ago these puddles were covered in ice. Around the other side of the block I found the pink sky reflections near the curb...
...which made me stop and consider this thawed puddle as well. I like the reflection of the stark trees.
Today my cozy reading chair is empty, but next time I need to thaw out, I'm going to grab a good book and nestle in.
Guess what? The garage just called and they were able to solve the problem for $138. I'm a happy camper. My mood has thawed as well. Thanks for taking a quick peek at my photos.
