Under Cover

Here's J's WRX under a two day blanket of whiteness. I look out my window right now, and it's still coming down, barely, but flakes are still falling. Today was a bit of a long day for me. It was tiring again. The day's pace was similar to watching a run of cold molasses. We rented UP and for the most part it was anything but. The ending certainly was upbeat, but a lot of the in between, you might categorize as DOWN. A bit about the shot. Looking off in this direction, past these large spruce, when the sun has broken through, after a heavy snow, is one of my favorite winter viewing spots on our land. So close to the back door, yet so seemingly isolated in this wintertide. The sun shining brilliant, still low in the morning sky and the gentle breeze sending snow cascading. Beautiful!

  3. The light in the trees beyond the car is spectacular. I'll try to think of some good movies that will make you smile but not laugh (don't want to make you hurt).

  4. No, no ...make him laugh. He could use a good laugh. My humor is wearing thin on him!

  5. It takes time for the body to recover and to regain stamina, and it's frustrating waiting, isn't it??

    A movie I thought hilarious: Lars and the Real Girl.

  6. Okay, here's a short list. Let me know if you want more. Sharon's suggestion of Lars and the Real Girl also makes my top ten list. Here are a few others: The Dinner Party, The Closet, Elling, Bread and Tulips, O Brother Where Art Thou, Keeping Mum. Hope these help.

  7. A lovely deep snow is a wondrous thing to look at from a seat by the window. Probably where you should be today is at a window looking out. Be patient with your body. It is not as young as your mind.
