Sigh! It's still winter!

Our cold weather continues and we still have snow on the ground. The roads are clear now so Frank was able to get to his doctor appointment today. (He was told that the endoscopy did not show any problems, which is good.)

Our electricity has stayed on so we are fairly comfortable, although I am often chilly in spite of wearing a cardigan sweater over a long-sleeved shirt and pulling a quilt over me while sitting, like right now. I feel bad for all the folks in Texas who have been without power during an unusual cold spell.

The roses are some that I saw in the store. 

I photographed a page of valentines from a scrapbook I made in the fourth grade. I didn't continue scrapbooking very long, but I did maintain photo albums for decades. 

The blue heart is hanging in my kitchen window. 

Thank you for visiting and stay safe!


  1. Your landscape photos look wonderful, as the blue heart. Wishing a nice weekend.

  2. It would be nice to share some of the sun with you and we to have some nice cool breeze here. It is really hot here and we have to switch on the air-con when we sleep.

  3. Debe de ser muy duro, quedarse sin electricidad en plena oleada de frío. Aquí en el sur de España, tenemos ahora unas máximas primaverales.

    Son preciosos los paisajes nevados.

    Feliz fin de semana.

  4. Be patient. Winter is having its last gasp for this year. Spring is right around the corner.

  5. ...Linda,you gathered a "lovely" collection today. Enjoy your winter, when summer comes it will be HOT!

  6. I hope your cold and snow disappear soon. It has to be spring somewhere, which gives me hope for both of us. Stay safe. You have a lovely view. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

  7. I woke up to bright sunlight and 26 degrees...several hours ago, and it's still 26. But the sun is a welcome break in grey days. My friend said it's ok to have to isolate for the virus, or it's ok to have to live with grey rainy days, but not both at the same time. I agree.

  8. Pretty shots! Glad you have electricity. Scary times for a lot of the country!

  9. Your second shot is my favourite of these.

  10. Beautiful roses, but my favorite photo is the view photo for Sky Watch Friday!

  11. The folks in Texas were let down by their leadership. Who then tried to blame it on wind energy.
    I love your roses. I take lots of photos of grocery store roses. Lots cheaper than buying them.

  12. Beautiful Roses ! Thanks for joining in Garden Affair .
