These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

A Few Words, A Buncha Pictures

Well, we have no snow! Everything has been pushed back and shortened in our area. We are still supposed to get up to 12 inches, but only time will tell. Albuquerque got dumped on, but all we've had so far is a scoosh of snowflakes that don't seem to have stuck and freezing fog. The fog, however, has given me some really cool pictures to share with you. (Don't forget to click for close details.

Some of the grass heads are iced.

These shots aren't snow or ice, but just an interesting thing I noted.
A dried, bleached log in the footprint of a living tree just make a very pretty picture.

Just a weed, but with ice droplets frozen all over it, it takes on a new look.

Now . . . a spider web, covered with droplets of moisture
from the fog and then frozen, looks like strings of crystal beads!

A close up of the heads of grass against the dark background.
Yeah, that's a garbage bag!
Sorry! I uses what I gots!

Ice on the tips of the pine needles was glistening like little lights.

Will you look at those threads sparkle?

More of the frosty weeds.

Tips of the branches look like those new artificial trees
with some sort of clear substance on the tips
of the needles to make them glisten.

It was all very fun, exploring the non-snow this morning. Hope y'all enjoyed it, too.

PS - It started snowing at about 6:00 PM, and the ground is almost covered. It looks as if we will get just about 1-2 inches now. pout, pout, pout.


  1. this looks like some thing that should go in a museum or a photo gallery . i never think of taking photos like this. thanks for sharing them with us. merry christmas and a happy new year.

  2. mrhaney - Thanks, very much! I love pictures of nature. When I take pictures of people or animals, they are truly "snapshots." But when I go into the yard or on the mountain side, I see thousands of pictures to take. MC & HNY to you, also!

  3. Old Lady - Aren't they?! Would you ever have thought of that? It is certainly not the usual yard and garden view for photos!

  4. Loved all the pictures! Especially the frosty spider webs. You're helping me to get into the wintry NM mood for my upcoming trip. Thank you!

    P.S. It got down to the low 60's here in Honolulu last night. Brrrrrr.

  5. Eileen - Oh, good! I'm glad I'm whetting your appetite for NM, although that 60 degree night you had sound pretty alluring, I must admit. I'm working on something, to be revealed soon, to expand the photograph displays. Stay tuned! ;-)


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
