next storm rolling in

It never really gets old unless it gets too cold. This wave of one storm after another has been marvelous. It’s what a winter ought to be. I don’t miss the shoveling… πŸ˜‰

Happy Solstice!


You will hear thunder and remember me,
and think: she wanted storms…Β 
― Anna Akhmatova

  1. I’m been offline for over a week and it feels like I will never catch up on people’s blogs. I wanted to thank you for the wisdom and delights you’ve shared with us this last year. The quotes and the beautiful shots are uplifting and have helped to sustain me through some challenging times. I hope the Christmas period was a peaceful time for you and I wish you a very special 2016 filled with love and memorable experiences. Best wishes. πŸ™‚


    • Oh, I know soooo much how that feels. It seems once I’ve fallen behind there IS no catching up. This last cold didn’t help matters a bit. I hate being sick. Hope 2016 is wonderful for you, too! We still have a few hours to go ’til midnight, but you’re either ahead of me or you’ll catch up! Wishing you more than well!

    • Thanks, so much for the good wishes… however it seems that marvelous Holiday didn’t quite pan out with a very nasty cold that had me coughing my head off and wanting to just crawl under the covers and stay there! Actually the timing was good since we’ve been waiting for the weather to calm down so we can get to work on the new house. Perhaps I just needed to rest up for the next phase… Hope yours was far better than mine!


    • Thanks, Lynn. Wishing you the same. So far it looks like a lovely, warm holiday except for the sniffles and cough that arrived yesterday. Time to hunker down and enjoy some more restful activity. Roads are crumbling or flooding all around us. I think I needed some time to stay home and relax! πŸ˜‰


    • Thank you, Nancy. So good to see you. I’ve been enjoying your tweets, though I rarely contribute anything of my own there. I’ve really been enjoying the storms, but almost getting to the point of saying enough is enough! We’re never quite satisfied, are we? πŸ˜€

  2. Beautiful photo, Gunta! Many passing storms here today with high winds. It was a beautiful kaleidoscope of weather out there today, with sun, great grey, fast-moving cloud galleons, patches of blue sky and stark white woolly wanderers.


    • Thank you, Lavinia. Your visits and comments are always appreciated. It has been one storm blowing in after the other. I don’t mind so much. It’s a good time to snuggle in with a cup of tea or soup and listen to the rain and the wind… and nurse a nasty cold ( could have done without that part!) Wishing you a warm and wonderful holiday season.


  3. Happy Solstice to you, too, Gunta. Great photo, too. We have had lots of rain in No. Calif., too, and even though the dreary days are wet and inconvenient, oh my goodness, what a blessing it is to have rain soaking into our hard and barren earth. Enjoy!


    • Just when I think I’m catching up on comments (mine and the bloggers I follow), along comes a cold to sideswipe me. The rain continues down up here, too. A great time to curl up with a good book with some tea or soup and listen to the rain pelting the windows outside. Thank you for the visit and comment. It’s always a pleasure.


  4. Glad you’re still welcoming the storms. I was a bit worried when I read a news item about a woman’s house that fell into a sink hole in Oregon.

    And nice to see the poet you quoted. I just wrapped a gift for my beloved of the collected poems of Anna Akhmatova.


    • We were actually in Newport (where the house fell into the sinkhole) that same day, but didn’t hear about it until we were safely home. That’s a good 3 hour drive from where we live. The folks up north have been hit a lot harder than us. At least for the moment.
