3/24/2015 - Outdoor Wednesday - Foot Clinic




Howdy Folks!   If you would like to view Outdoor Themes click here: http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/.   Thank you Susan for being the hostess.


Yearly my husband and I go to a foot clinic in the city.   Afterward, I peeked through this fence in a nearby park and look who was peeking back at me....a Canada Goose.  I guess, they are heading north already.




Then I spied with my "little eyes" this bike or walking trail.


Walking back towards the car what do I see but a sign wishing us KEEP HAVING A GOOD DAY.
And so it is.

3/13/2015 - SkyWatch Friday



Howdy Folks!   If you would like to view skies from all over the world click here: http://skyley.blogspot.com/.  Our Friday Skywatch hosts are:  Yogi, Sylvia and Sandy.



I've noticed that lately the sky and the ice covered rivers, lakes and streams are about the same color which is gray. So I played with this image in Picasa until it super-sized the grayness.  Soon the trees will have buds and the ice will melt. It has been a long cold winter here in Illinois. Today, I opened the front and back screen doors to let the fresh air into our home.   Tomorrow we are expecting 50 degree weather.   I will welcome Spring this year.
