We have had some amazing lightning storms over the last few nights. Sunday night I decided to go out and try and take some pictures. I only took out my I-phone, really wish I would have used my camera and tripod.
This past week has been a busy week for me and my poor blog has been neglected. Although along with my long working hours, we did get some of the garden planted and we also got our front doors painted. So we did get a few things accomplished. This week is going to be different and I am starting the week off right with my Almost Wordless Wednesday Party.
I hope you will join me again this week for Almost Wordless Wednesday link up. I have enjoyed having you here and would love if you would share this party with your friends and followers. I love taking pictures and this is one way I can share them with you... although sometimes they don't turn out as I want to or the way I want them to, like these ones.
Now that Sunlit Sundays are over until next winter. I am going to try and keep up with my photography posts each week. I am also thinking of making this into a link party too.. Hopefully by next week I will have everything ready.
We are just coming out of a big snow storm/blizzard and have spent the last 3 days shoveling and moving snow. Hubby would shovel it on top of the already 5 feet of snow that we have in our yard. Climb up the bank and move it further down the way so that we can put more. The life of living in the U.P. and every day I wonder why....
We have been most fortunate these last couple of weeks as we have had lots of sun. This isn't normal for us as it is usually overcast and snowing. We have gotten lots of snow but for the last couple of weeks it has been down to just a small skiff per day... During the winter the sky even seems bluer then during the summer, I am not sure why that is. Is it because of the blue against the white of the snow it seems more brilliant? Or is it just because we don't see it that often that we are amazed by the colour? It doesn't matter ~ the sky is blue and it is wonderful.
As you all know if you read my blog or even my facebook fan page... that we live where we get lots and lots and lots and lots of snow. This year has been no exception and because it has been colder, that snow just keeps piling up. The only thing that makes it at least bearable is that occasionally we do get to see the sun. I just wish that sun would come out more often...
Some Snow and Some Sun
We did get a blizzard with snow one day this week, a blizzard that at times we couldn't see across the street or even our balcony rail from the living room window. So the next morning meant that we did some shoveling. As the daylight started, we could see the sunlight coming out.
I have decided to combine my photography blog with this blog... You didn't know I had a photography blog did you? Well, know you will see those post over here. All I have to do is figure out where to put the tab so that it is easy for you to find these post.
Karen from My Little Home and Garden each winter has a meme called Sunlit Sunday. I am so excited that she is doing it again this year. It is a little way to get some sunlight into the dreary winter we are having everywhere... cold and snow. If you would like to join, head over and check out what you need to do and bring a little Sunlight into Our Lives.
We haven't had much sunlight this winter as it has snowed every day... and I mean every day.... Snowed so much that the last I heard we have had a total of 170 inches so far. A couple of weeks ago we did get a little sun and the sunset was magnificent. I did take these pictures through my second story window on my phone.
I love the colour of the sky in this picture and the sun shining on the house that is in the background.
