After weeks of gray, drizzly, cold, icy, gray, grayer, grayest -- we have sunshine. There's not a cloud in the sky, and it's supposed to be so for days. If you're still buried, or cold, or gray, just remember. The sun is still there. Willie's ready to witness!

Thanks much for the Valentine greetings. We had three days in a row of blue skies and sun - best Valentine present ever!

Sandi ~
I haven't checked, but I hope things are calming down for you. There's just something about extraordinary events that tempts people a little too close, isn't there? On the other hand, if that's your house, I can understand wanting to be there to at least know what's happening, rather than heading for the hills.

Bug ~
It's been a full one, that's for sure. It was a little cool yesterday, but we're warming up and some pruning and repotting's on the schedule. My Cape Honeysuckle's putting on a lot of new growth suddenly, so I need to get it cut back, pronto. It blooms on new growth, so early pruning's important here. By July it's too hot for it to bloom well, so it needs to have a chance to really get its act together. A good pruning now will mean blooms by April, perhaps. That makes the butterflies happy!

Hi, Linda. I hope you've been having a good weekend.

I've had my nose buried in books. I've polished off two since Friday afternoon and am now in the middle of Dan Brown's "The Lost Symbol."

The weather is much more enjoyable this weekend. While the wind yesterday kept things on the chilly side, it was so nice to see blue sky and sunshine.

It's less windy today, with partly sunny skies.

All of which is better than snow, ice and freezing temps!

I found the Jim Cantore video and then also followed a few more links to see other folks take on the wall of water.....
All I can say is, they are mad to stand so close to that force of nature, just to try to get photos or videos of it!! Lol

You're right, Linda. It is possible to have too much of a good thing. So let me wish you a sunny Valentine's Day with no problems and just enough of what it takes (chocolate?) to make a great day!

What a lovely video!

I think I saw that strange yellow ball in the sky, off to our west, around quarter of 6:00 this evening.

It looked marvelous!

Happy Valentine's! I may not get around with all my greetings tomorrow, so best wish you now.

"If you're still buried, or cold, or gray,..."

Sorry, but you forgot to add, growing webbed feet!! lol

IF we haven't had enough rain, (the worst January and February since records began in the middle of the 18th century), the depression arriving tomorrow is set to drop a month's worth of rain in 24 hours!

If you have sun, and warmth, hopefully it might get across here by Easter!!

Sandi ~ Loved your verse about past, present and future in the last entry. I can guarantee you this day is a gift - it's supposed to hit 60 degrees with sunshine. My, my. I'm not sure I'll know what to do - except get to work, of course.

Here's your little verse, for those who didn't see it.

Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is a mystery.
Today is a gift.
That's why it is called "the present."

Ylee ~
I usually just use Picmonkey and add my text there. That way I can pick what seems to fit the image or whatever, and center it, too. I keep a white "blank canvas" in my photo files, and then add overlays to that. When I post it, the white background blends in with the white WU background. Voila!

Bogon ~ Actually, there are times when good things happening can be just as disorienting as something bad. It's just that the coping is easier. (Or maybe not - think about all the stories about people who win the lottery and it leaves them broke and miserable.)

But good gosh - that scenario you describe, of saving money for vacation and then having to spent it on the car or whatever... that's dead on. It is, as they say, the way of the world. ;)
