November 24, 2015 - Thinking Outside the Box - Windshield During Snow Storm - Quote - Mary Oliver - Snow





We survived the snow, ice and strong winds.   This is what it looked like through our windshield going on errands.

Quote:

"Snow was falling
 so much like stars
filling the dark trees
that one could easily imagine
its reason for being
was nothing more than prettiness."
~ Mary Oliver

"In November, the trees are standing all sticks and bones.  Without their leaves, how lovely they are, spreading their arms like dancers.  They know it is time to be still."

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












A very good friend of mine, Judy and her husband Eric, and I went to Cedarburg, Wisconsin.    We did a lot of shopping, had a sandwich at a wonderful coffee shop, and experienced the past at the Old Mill.   Weather was cloudy but warm.  In the afternoon, it rained for a little bit.

Later, we visited a cheese house, Woodman's and then home "sweet" home to watch college football with my husband.  Life is good!

Greetings and Salutations   



Both photos are of a flag hanging outside of Firefly Trading Company.  Rainbow colors attracted my attention but when I switched the format to black and white it looked very creative too.   I decided to post two images.
