The sun was shining this morning after days of gray clouds, snow and cold which automatically makes it a great day for me. Once in a while I get to take a short road trip from our shop to the upholstery shop about 20 miles cross-country. It was a beautiful day for a drive. I couldn’t help but play a little roadside photo hooky. Okay, I confess I stopped to take some pictures while I was on the clock . I really didn’t get a morning break because I was driving instead so a few minutes to take some pictures should be okay and good for the soul.
Along my way I ran into a couple of curious observers as I was taking pictures.
As I passed one hillside I had to stop to take another look at what I saw. It was something I had never seen before.
I looked like someone had scribbled all over the hillside. I suspect that mice have tunneled around in the grass under the snow but I’m not sure. I will have to do some research on this. I love the artwork that nature sometimes provides.
When I’m taking pictures I like to get some water in the picture which is hard to do in Minnesota in the winter but I managed to find some open water to photograph along my route.
I love trips to Auggie’s Upholstery Shop because there are always history surprises in his shop. Auggie restores old car interiors so you never know what you will see inside. Today it was a 1940 Packard.
My attitude is so much better after some sunshine today. This is what I woke up to yesterday.
The snow was so wet and heavy that it broke branches off our White Pine. Everything was so much better yesterday after a cup of homemade Turkey Wild Rice Soup and a good book. A great day to stay inside with 30-40 mph winds most of the day.
Time to head for bed, I feel a cold coming on….
