Monday, first day of the week

Poudre River in Winter

Poudre River in Winter

Cloudy and overcast skies this morning. Looking and feeling like winter, probably because it is. A few snowflakes could be seen on my walk to the bus stop. I thought, sorry, there I go again thinking, I could add to the wintery mood if I converted this image to black and white. They, those weather guys, say we are only going to reach the low 20’s today. I’ve decided to NOT wear my sandals, so my biggest decision for the day has been made. I’m now at the Lory Student Center to read and write. Will meet a good friend for brunch later. Have a super Awesome week!

Every day, priests minutely examine the Law
And endlessly chant complicated sutras.
Before doing that, though, they should learn
How to read the love letters sent by the wind and rain,
The snow and moon.

Trees at Sunset

Trees at Sunset

This was taken 5 years ago and is a pair of favorite trees I visited a lot. I have not been there for quite some time and wonder how they would look now. Good grief, we are less than a week away from Christmas.  It is coming up too fast. I noticed we are expecting to have a bit of cooler weather for Christmas. They say snow Thursday through Saturday then single digit temperatures at night for the next 5 days. Brrr!

Yes, Bluer is a Word

Blue Skies over the CSU Soccer Practice Field

Blue Skies over the CSU Soccer Practice Field

I love blue skies! So, after getting off the bus and walking to Morgan Library on Colorado State University campus I had to smile and point my camera to the northern skies. I find this time of the year to be a favorite. We begin to have cooler temperatures making for a better night of sleep and refreshing mornings. And, I think the blue skies are bluer! 🙂

Storm Clouds Along the Colorado Front Range

Storm Clouds Along the Colorado Front Range

We have had cloudy and cooler weather for the past few days, seeing less of our Colorado sunshine. This past Saturday was a day for lovely clouds and not just a gray sky. I have taken several images from this location and always include the trees.
