Sunday Stroll - A Day Late

I almost didn't go outside. The sound of the wind singing through the cracks around the doors and windows, the cold chill that came in with the sound, were enough to convince me that sometimes Sunday is a good day to stay indoors. I pulled on boots and coat long enough to snap an image or two of the snowy hills, and the sled at the ready on the front deck. The string is looped around a post to keep this lightweight glider from blowing away in these January winds.






Tiggy had the right idea, I believe, so I followed her lead and aside from some cooking I had a pretty lazy Sunday.


I couldn't get my photos to load yesterday, so here they are a day late. Wherever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you rest and relaxation.

Well. I *didn't* go outside. :)

So...you should feel great about pulling on those boots! The sky is just beautiful in your photos--I'm glad you went outside.

And, although it is a day late, I think you have that right, as you are the hostess of this sweet bloggy tradition, right? ;o)

Stay warm!

Your landscape photos are really lovely. I'm with kitty too... I'd love to be able to curl up and nap for a while. Stay warm!

OHMYGOODNESS, the photographs are amazing dear Aisling. BRRRRRR, now I am embarrassed by my garden posting and the flowers, fruit, etc. I just wanted to share those blessings with others.

Loved seeing and reading this,

Jessica, I'm sure there'll be another day where you venture out and I stay inside all warm and cozy! :) Thank you for your sweet remarks about my photos. The skies here are really beautiful; it's one of the things I love most about living here.

Aisling said...

Christiane, Thank you! We're expecting a heat wave Thursday. 36 degrees F. :)

Sharon, Never be embarrassed by your beautiful blog, Sharon! I love visiting you there. It is like stopping by the house of a friend. Thank you for your kind comments on my photos. I'm glad you enjoyed them. It would like somewhat like this in Maine (probably more wintry even!) right now, wouldn't it?

I love your landscape. Sledding sounds fun. We need another sprinkling of snow!

Aisling said...

Pom Pom, I hope you get some good sledding snow soon! :)

These are terrific photos even if late.

Aisling said...

Tabor, Thank you! I sort of thought it wasn't a very pretty day... too gray and cold and windy... but when I looked at my photos I was surprised. I am (gradually) learning that every day offers beauty, if we are open to see it. My camera helps me with that!

Beautiful photos all around, but that first one of the window is really beautiful and almost haunting.

Beautiful shots but made me cold looking at them. Going to 40's in my area "with sun". Makes me think of Spring.

Aisling said...

Small Pines, Thank you! I really liked that photo too. It seems sort of wistful to me, but I can understand the haunted vibe too. :)

Ernestine,
I know it; it really was cold that day! Luckily we're in a slight warming trend. I guess these next few days will be our "January Thaw." We'll see if we loose a lot of snow! I guess it will show in my photos Sunday.

I love that first shot of your curtains and the landscape shots too. Glad you endured the wind for some great photos.

Aisling said...

Jessica, Thank you for coming by to see my photos. Photos of windows... whether looking in or out.. often intrigue me. The one in my first photo is through my laundry room window and it looks out at my butterfly garden (though you can't really see much of it except the tiny evergreen at the south end.)
