Saying good bye to February!

Oscar Under Wraps

I am so not a movie critic.
I've seen 4 Oscar nominees recently.
Silver Linings Playbook,
The Impossible,
and today, I took in Amour.
Amour = Love =Sad.
Emmanuelle Riva is my pick for best actress.
She was phenomenal.
I look forward to Oscar night,
as it seems to be the fore bearer of Spring!
Followed this year by a full, milky, Snow Moon,
the temperatures this week promise a slight uprise,
 the sun might hang around a little longer,
the ice may finally start melting,
and, maybe, just maybe,,
I'll get to crack open a window!
The simple joys of life.

My Fat Cardinal

I had a flurry of cardinal activity yesterday before heading to the office. 2 male cardinals were exhausting a lone female. I was able to catch a few photos of the less aggressive of the 2.
It's a view from inside the window, so the pictures are far from perfect, but the excitement was
beyond belief. Rarely do I get the chance to photograph a cardinal, they always seem so timid and shy. This little guy was such a beauty!
Happy Weekend!

For as long as I can remember,
the decisions that I have made,
 and those that I continue to make,
 have been,
and still are
that little thing

The days are getting longer,
the buds are getting fatter,
the little spring birds are chirping
in spite of the cold, Winter winds.
We must be patient
Spring is 33 days away!

Fat Tuesday & Love Beads

It's been a long 6 or 7 weeks.
Long, cold days
And dark, cold nights.
But, today is all about sunshine and warmth.
And Love.
My Mom returns to the warmth of her own home!
What we all thought would be a 3 or 4 day visit
turned itself into 6 weeks.
There was very little excitement in those weeks.
Except, for the beads, and the Love.
So, Happy Fat Tuesday, 
And, Welcome Home, Mom!
"One good Mother is worth a hundred school masters."

I'm looking forward to these snow drops
rather than the ones that have been popping up lately! 
For once, we've been spared from the worst of the storm.
We went to the movies again today.
We saw "The Impossible".
Bring your tissue box.

The magic of Winter is knocking at our doors!

Ground Hog Day

I guess it won't be too long
until the boats are back in the harbor.
Happy February!
