Seventy-four days! Wowzers!

It was a cloudy one today. Lots of melting going on…so much so it looked like it was raining all day, but the rain didn’t start until this evening. After work, I put my new yellow raincoat on, applied duct tape to my rubber boots and off I went to create trenches in our icy lane way. It’s a yearly task that I actually enjoy. Making small trenches in the ice to allow the puddles of water a place to drain…a little more challenging with six feet of snow and ice.

I’m still working on the picture of the day. I took a bunch of shots while I was out digging my small trenches but I’m having difficulties getting the images to display and copied over to my laptop. I think there might be a problem with the camera card. Fingers crossed I can get all the images backed up!

Tonight’s painting came together nicely. I don’t know where it came from…well, ya, I do…intuition. Listening to and following the ideas that came to me… a little brown here, a little green here, a little blue here…a tree here… Never ceases to amaze me!

It was one of those mornings. Bleary eyed from lack of sleep, from a late night out! I enjoyed my evening very, very much, not so much the early morning alarm.

Grateful for the opportunity though, to watch the dawn break and the sunrise. Little did I know at the time that would be all I would see of the sun for the day.

Knowing I would be tired by the end of the day, I brought my paint supplies to work with me and painted a little painting during a break time.

The photo of the day was taken as I pulled out of the garage, looked to my right and WOW, just WOW. I rolled down the window and took this picture.
