If you speak French--Encore en fois..... Perhaps Spanish is your language--vamos a intentar de nuevo... or far away in Russia it would be--Давайте попробуем еще раз... or in plain old English, "One more time... let's give it a try!
The reason for this prelude is that I have been away from my Sugar& Spice&All Things?Nice blog for about a year now, actually it has been 11 months. ( I have been counting) The reasons for this are various and sundry and they all involve me. I won't bore you with details, but I do want to give it another try. I want this blog to be special....you know,like yours and all those others that I read and enjoy. I want to make you laugh, maybe make you cry ( but not often), inspire your imagination and activate your salivary glands ( before you get huffy, that means make you drool!) with amazing recipes. Maybe just some fun discussions about words or phrases that interest me.... and hopefully you as well.
Whew, so glad that is off my chest. I have been losing sleep worrying about whether or not to return to blogging and procrastinating to the point that days, weeks and months have actually flown
by to the extent it is now 2015!!
Recently my hubby and I took a drive to a nearby park. Despite the fact that I abhor all things winter one of my New Year Hopes ( note-not a resolution but a desire/hope... to me there is a difference) is to try to find something positive in all things .This weeks "thing" is weather! This is very challenging given the fact that lately it is not uncommon for the Wind Chill Factor , ie, "feel like temp" to be -40 degrees Celsius!!
Here are a couple of examples of the beauty I found on this frigid afternoon.
|I love the snow covered trees against the brilliant blue of the sky. Amazingly the snow only adhered to this one area of the tree. Had I been on the opposite side of this path the photo would look entirely different.|
|Couldn't resist this "Study of Circles" that this park bench presented. I'd rather be sitting on it in the summer, but I am really trying to "see the best" so bear with me.|
Lastly, the "Deer and Crows". I was able to get out of the car, snap the pic and not a head so much as raised. That gal in the back was so deep in conversation with the crow, I was not even worth a glance.
