Stark Reality.......

The work zone is always a mess until all the work on the walls and ceiling is done.  Then things start to come back to normal when the final painting is done and tools are put away in their proper containers and places.

What you are seeing here is a nook in out room.  It was a place where above cabinets and shelves and below sink cabinet were housed to use in the art studio zone.  The wall is on the north side of an old house. The water pipes eventually froze so often during the winters  that I just closed the sink down.  With it all removed, the future owners could put shelving in here and create an office area or reading library. I am installing a light where the past light and exhaust use to be. I am anxious to get the painting done in the area so we can stack all our boxes into it.  We need them out of our way and they can store in the nook until we move. It is a good sized area so it will hold a lot of boxes.

Sparrow Sighting......

Sparrows seem to be dominating the feeders today.  There were juncos around yesterday but today it is just sparrows.

City View........

The sun reflects off of the frozen snow.  The temperatures are cold at 16 degrees F.  It was painful to be outside yesterday with strong winds and snow.  Hopefully the winds are slowed down and the predicted 32 degree F. temperature will come soon.

Weather Report......Visually

The weather rocks show a course ice formed from freezing rain.  The wind blew hard and loudly most of the night.  I actually woke up when it got quiet.  The silence was amazing after hearing the thunder and roar all night.  It is now gently snowing out there with the promise of the weather people that it will stop at noon.  After all those warm days it seems strange to have snow again.  I see all our warm weather moved east now and it tis making weather head lines.

Bloom Where You Are........

We gifted the neighbor one of these bulbs for her birthday in December.  It took a very long time to finally bloom but it did. Normally they burst out of the bulb and bloom so quickly that you can't enjoy them for very long. I do think she had it in a low light place in her living room and it did seem to slow it down.

We will be having another spring day today.  I know that it will cool down but we are enjoying the weather while we can. We actually made the national weather map on television with a "record high" sign on top of our state. Worked inside all day yesterday with a window wide open letting in fresh air.

Tuesday Morning........

We did end up with a full sun for today.  Those lingering clouds must have gone south. We have another warm, drying day today before fall hits us.  Winter on Friday for sure.
