I took the above picture as we drove along Highway 16 just after crossing the Narrows Bridge. Once we got to his place, the front field was so pretty....covered in several inches of fresh snow.
The house and front yard was also covered as was his smaller Nissan pick up.
I had heard on the news this morning that the temps would rise but the wind would kick up and by the time we were heading back into town...it was very windy. Going across the Narrows Bridge in a strong wind is so much fun. It's hard to even keep your car in the right lane.
After a stop at Trader Joe's for a gallon of milk and some dried cranberries, we stopped at Target. My older HP digital camera is starting to act up. I love it because it has a view finder as well as the screen in the back to look thru. I've discovered, however that unless you have a view finder it's hard to get a good picture, especially in the bright sun. I've been looking at this little pink number at Target. One of Sony's last year models so is drastically reduced in price. I finally decided to buy one. I'm not sure how it's going to work, however.....it doesn't take regular batteries, there's special battery pack that has to be recharged. When traveling, we don't always have access to electricity. Plus it takes a special memory card. But it's so cute, I'll try it for awhile and see how I like it.
Well now the sun is out right this moment but the western sky is black and the wind is really howling. I'd like to start a fire in the woodstove but it's always difficult when the wind is blowing. The smoke blows right back into the house.
That's all for now.....hope you all have had a wonderful weekend. Linda
