Monday Moments

 I have decided to start a new blog segment - Monday Moments.  The idea is that each week I will have taken some pictures or not, observed a moment or two, and truly relished what occurred. We all blast through our days, half listening to people natter, as we scroll our phones, or await our next meal. Step back, step outside of oneself, and just observe.

We have penguins guarding our front door. It's a good thing because a winter blast whooshed down from Oklahoma and the Northern Plains to do a Mr. Freeze act on Friday.
 Saturday we awoke to 14 degrees F and managed to make it to 30 something by afternoon
 Here's my moment. I hustled outside to fetch the paper and noticed how pretty the snow dusting looked.
Cool shadow and pattern.

What moment did you have this past week or weekend?

Stay warm, folks!

  1. Wonderful moments Joanne,
    My moment was after my back injury I was able to be free of pain to regain my positivity and get to the shops although the pain returned for a while later.

  7. Yes to taking time to notice! I've heard that as a sentiment from several people this year. Love the snow pattern. I'm trying to do the same thing with my picture a day project. Rain, rain, rain here but it doesn't snow in my part of CA. Thanks for sharing!

  9. It was quite cold here over this past weekend too. Love the penguins! My moment was a text message I got from my son. He was just checking in with me, wanting my opinion about something. It was not a big deal, but it was a moment I was grateful for.
