Fresh tracks


Beautiful, and vaguely creepy. A perfect description of Monday?

Photo by Andif, of course.

Nope. I've got the perfect description for Monday in the Monday Picture Post:

Blue Fog

This is one of those days when both pictures and words fail me as I can't describe the feeling of walking through blue air and the picture doesn't do it justice.

Morning all.

katiebird said...

Good Morning Andi -- I love the Blue Fog. And I know exactly how it feels and smells and looks. -- It popped right out of the photo.

Hi Rick!

Beth said...

Morning, everyone! Great picture, andi. I love mornings like that. That's one of the things I miss down here - inclement days. I love rainy ones, foggy ones, windy ones - we mainly have sunny ones. NOT that I'm complaining, but I like it when Ma Nature does her thing...

Sorry it's 11 - hope it warms up soon!

Maria Lima said...

Hi, all.

Andi - love the blue fog pic, both creepy and gorgeous.

I'm ensconced in the recliner today as I've lost the battle to the Office Death Cold. I figured I'd spare my coworkers from the germs.

It's definitely Monday.

katiebird said...

Good Morning Beth & Jen & Maria!

Maria -- you are a saint. I wish everyone did what you're doing.

Plus, you'll get the chance to actually rest and drink plenty of liquids, right?

I hope you feel better soon.

FARfetched said...

Hey everyone! Cinnamon rolls are in the kitchen. I have oyster stew going in the crockpot for lunch.

Not shown: tracks leading to highway, where the track-maker lies squished. :-P

Blue Fog? I've gotten pix like that… when I goobered the white balance.

Hey Maria, you're doing the right thing. Nap a lot, drink a lot (of water), stay warm, and keep a notepad handy in case you get a few ideas. And like KB said, get better.

Nancy P said...

Rick, lol! (And we notice there are no "tail tracks.")

Blue Monday, wow, Andi. Or, walking through the atmosphere of another planet.

Katiebird, are you going to work? Feeling lots better, I hope?

Nancy P said...

Beth, have you ever heard the saying, "No whining on the yacht?" :p

Oh, god, Jen, what a funny version of that old saying.

Maria, oh no! Not the Office Death Cold!

Far, I am laughing and feeling guilty about it. Squish. I want a hot cinammon roll NOW.

katiebird said...

Yes and No.

Beth said...

I'm missing cinnamon rolls, oyster stew AND a yacht?!

I know, I'm sorry, I wasn't really whining. I just like rain and clouds and fog. Of course tomorrow night they're calling for damaging hail, severe thunderstorms and tornados, so I might get more weather than I bargained for.

Waving from the leaky rowboat lovingly referred to as "The Yacht." Where there's room for everyone.

katiebird said...

Aren't Cinnamon rolls the known cure for bronchitis? I'm SURE I read that somewhere.

Nancy P said...

Katiebird, Damn and Damn.

Beth, I have a cute mental image of you in your sunny rowboat, waving.

Katiebird, Yes. It is a little-known fact that Native Americans could cure all sorts of ailments by the simple application or ingestion of cinammon. . .rolls. Unfotunately, that's also what drew the Europeans across the country--that tantalizing fragrance.

katiebird said...

Hmm. .. I think a little trip to a bakery is in order??

Kidding, I'm just kidding! It's way too cold for that... :(

Kelly McCullough said...

Cinnamon rolls! Hooray! Morning all, a lovely white tea for breakfast and overnight oatmeal.

Just getting my talk put together for tonight and having my usual experience of switching from "how am I ever going to fill an hour-and-a-half?" to "How am I ever going to get all of this in in only an hour-and-a-half?"

My sympathies for the sickies.

Quiet applause for Jen.

Andi, lovely pic as always.

Beth, even a leaky rowboat is looking awfully nice from here in 7-freakin'-below land.

AndiF said...

Afternoon all.

I'm sure this is just unnecessary anal-retentiveness (wait, is that possible?) but I want to point out that those are tracks of one raccoon.

Conda said...

Yes, Nancy, a perfect description of my Monday...bring on the cinnamon rolls and oyster stew, not necessarily in that order...

Family Man said...

Good morning Nancy and everyone!

All this talk of cinnamon rolls has me wondering if the road to world peace isn't paved with cinnamon rolls. I know I'd eat enough to where I wouldn't be harsh with anyone. Probably wouldn't be able to move either.

It's mid-Feb and I think our spring has sprung. It's 74 outside right now.

Hope everyone's Monday is going well and to all the sick - Slack as much as possible.

Beth said...

I want to walk that road, fam! Do you still get the ones at the local bakery, when you're up and at 'em?

It's only 76 here - what a beautiful day it must be up there!! I hope you can get outside and breathe some of that warm air, and send those flu bugs packing. Were you able to take George to the vet?

Nancy P said...

Hi, Family Man, Conda, and Kelly. I second Beth's motion that you feel better, FM.

I just figured out how to give my mom closed captions on her tv. It was harder than sticking a paperclip in a hole. Any fix that requires an instruction book and more than one remote control is UNNECESSARILY COMPLEX. (Is any gizmo company listening?)

Family Man said...

Hi Beth.

Nope I didn't get him to the vet today. I've got an appointment for tomorrow. I did get myself to the doctor today and can now add another medicine to the untold multitudes I take.

However, I am feeling better today and thanks.

Family Man said...

Hiya Nancy.

Figuring out a remote isn't easy sometimes. I get called by FMom at least twice a day because she pushed the wrong button on the remote, and it won't work on the TV. Every time I go to fix it, I tell her to push the top right button that says TV. I can't figure out if she just can't get it into her head, or she has me on her own secret exercise program. :)

As I told Beth, I am feeling better today and thank you too. :~)

FARfetched said...

Not watching TV is always an option if you can't figure out the remotes. Daughter Dearest is the authority on our dual-remote setup at FAR Manor, but I've been able to puzzle out the right button to push to fix a problem Mrs. Fetched was having sometimes.

Seriously. How does anyone get arsed to write after numbing their brains with TV? :-) I can't do it.

boran2 said...

That's a pretty cool photo, andi. Those tracks look pretty fresh too, although I have great expertise.

Here in the Hudson Valley it started at 9 degrees with a hard wind but got all the way up to 19 by the end of the day. (Still windy though.) Time to break out the shorts. On Sunday we had snow squalls giving us some scary white outs.

Nancy P said...

Evenin' B2. Will you be having yours on tap, or in a bottle?

katiebird said...

I everyone. I think my highest priority will be to outlaw February.

Half the people in the country can't even pronounce it -- they won't miss it at all.

Nancy P said...

lol, kb. But if you outlaw things based on pronounciation, you'll have to outlaw "liberries," too, won't you?

And nukulur power.

katiebird said...

:) I used to work with a librarian from Hong Kong who couldn't pronounce library....


But (I'm sure this will shock everyone) it's not really the pronunciation issue causing me to take up this issue.

It's the F'kin cold!

Nancy P said...

Frozen snort.
