SNOW MATTERS

  1. We don’t get many power cuts but when it does it feels like the end of the world is starting! My brother has had heavy snow in New York State this year but thankfully the electricity stayed on for them to cook their Christmas dinner unlike the year before!

  2. Jesh – so glad you could join Mosaic Monday again this week, and with such a varied post. I do like the “wings” on your cross, and the view over your house with the “temporary” blue sky is an unparalleled joy. It pays to look out the window every few minutes – you never know what you might see! I am glad to hear that the precipitation may help everyone (farmers, those in areas at risk of fire, etc.) We all pray that this summer will be better than last in that regard! Enjoy the rest of your week!

  3. Loved all your fotos. Thank you so much for your faithfulness to link-up each Friday with Friday Foto Friends. It is sad that I have to discontinue it, but life is starting to overwhelm me a bit. My Mom has ALZ and my husband has some health issues and….well, I’m not as young as I used to be. Prayers appreciated! ❤

    1. Sorry Debbie, I will miss your zest for life (maybe not as young, but it’s how young you feel, right?) But I understand, 2 loved ones who have health issues must be a lot of work daily! All the best to you and may God shine upon you.

  4. Your coffee grinder is neat and useful! I’m glad it works so you were able to have a hot cuppa to warm your insides. A small generator sounds like a good plan.

    Your deer is cute, and your cross lovely. Stay warm! xx

  5. Snow absolutely matters! We had only tree days some snow, but it melted away very fast. Today the temperature rose above 10 degrees C in our garden. It’s so sad …
    So, your snow pictures are very welcome. And some of them are really wonderful, especially the snowy cross, the deer and that sky are beauties. For emergency situations, we also have such a working kind of coffee grinder. 🙂
    Have a wonderful weekend.

    1. Sorry the snow where you live melted so fast, and that’s pretty warm for this time of year, right? – I quess that means no Elfstedentocht this year, eh? What’s also happening at the moment I can’t show you – after the snow it keeps now raining, and suddenly all kinds of streams are popping up, coming down the mountains. It means a lot for the Californian farmers (this last drought several gave up their farm. Their failed crops were a sorry sight). Have a great weekend:)

    1. Thank you Janet. We bought the cross at a silver store in San Diego (it’s iron though) even before the studio was built – as a symbol of what the focus of my paintings are about, am happy it fits so well with the surroundings of the forest.

  6. Love this post, especially the not straight, not flat perspectives. (And btw, we always have a gas bbq wherever we live, in case of power outages, works just fine even for a coffee pot)

    1. Yeah, I KNEW someone would react, but remember this is California, we are not supposed to go under 60 – 50 F deg in “winter!” Where you were in Italy, that’s what it should feel like.
      What I do like though is that we are definitely out of the drought, and right now tiny streams are swelling to a “river” oh, and I can finally wear sweaters, hats, scarves, and boots, joining the club of the weirdos.

  7. Wonderful photos (and doors). Our daughter has one of those coffee grinders and periodically uses it. I’m glad you got as close to the deer as you did, She’s pretty, and I enjoyed the conversation.

    We don’t lose power that often, but we are contemplating adding a small generator to the equipment list. The last time we lost power for any length of time was 2011, but it was out for 10 days. My wife made coffee on our wood stove.

    1. This week today was the third time the power was off, and it was getting to me – didn’t know that it was that important – yeah a wood stove is nice for all kinds of things, other than just heat! I also started using it as a paper shredder:)
