Kids

Both of my children have moved out of my house but it doesn't mean that they don't call and need something. For example, last night my son calls and says he needs a ride to work this morning. Oh great, just what I wanted to do this morning.
So what did I do? I got up early, got dressed and headed out the door to take him to work.

BUT...

first I grabbed the camera. I figured I might as well get something out this trip too.
After I dropped him off at work I headed for a little park I know of. 
Unfortunately when I got there the road wasn't plowed and this was as far as I could get
 
oh well, I can still take pictures, the trees around here looked so pretty with their winter coat.

This is a very noble looking road don't you think?

Then it was back home for a fresh cup of hot coffee

and a warm puppy dog to greet me at the window

BeadedTail said...

Beautiful photos and Duke made me chuckle! He's probably wondering why he isn't out in the snow with you!

Ann said...

bossy betty, thanks

beebeebabs, thank you

donna isn't he though. yes it is still most definitely winter here

beaded tail I think that's exactly what he was wondering lol

tahtimbo said...

Those are great photos! Unfortunately, we lost all of our snow months ago. It was actually kinda warm out today (50's).
I bet that hot coffee tasted good :)
Have a terrific weekend!

Tanyia said...

Gorgeous photos, I love the one looking down the road! Duke is so cute in the window, too! :)

gayle said...

Beautiful snow pictures! Our temps were in the 70's today!

Grace said...

Great photos - did you use the selective color thingy on some of them? That is one of the few technical tweaks I really like...

Kloggers/Polly said...

Oh Ann!! Brr ..... how very, very cold your beautiful pictures look. On such days as a child we would wear a liberty bodice. I don't think that they sell them any more as I suppose with central heating young girls would get too hot indoors but sometimes I just wonder when I see so much snow and cold perhaps they should re-invent them. :)

Ginny said...

Awwwwwwww!! That picture of Duke patiently waiting for you in the window, with the trees reflected over him, a wonderful picture. It really needs to be in a magazine or something.

allotments4you said...

My Mum always joked that she saw a lot ,more of us after we actually left home...lol.

I can't believe all that snow around...here it didn't get below 9 degrees last night....I hope you don't have the cold for too much longer!!

FishHawk said...

Beautiful shots--especially that one of the puppy in the window!

Russ aka Grampy said...

Nice shots Ann. Pictures of things I don't want to see until next year. Except for Duke of course.I think you should have let him come out and play with you.LOL As for the kids. Once you have them they will still always need you sooner or later. A mothers work is never done.

Marg said...

Oh Duke, you are the very best. Goodness that is such a great picture.All the pictures are pretty with the snow and all but glad we don't have snow here. Hope you have a super Sunday.

Jen said...

I love the new look! I think we all do pretty much what you did (grumbling all the way *grin*) Your first shot is my favorite one ;o)

livintheblues said...

lovely photos Ann...:)

Out on the prairie said...

I can't believe you left Duke home, he wanted to take a romp in the park also.

Catherine said...

No matter what ~ our children can always depend on us right?

But you did get some beautiful photos in the deal ~ and to come home to a cute puppy and a hot cup of coffee ~ perfect!

Happy Sunday Ann!
xo Catherine

Duni said...

Goodness! You still have so much snow. What a great way to be greeted at the door :)

Sandra said...

beautiful trees and snow but none can compare to Duke In the Window, how much is that doggie in the window, I do hope that doggies for sale. are you singing with me yet

the booker man said...

what would life be without us cute doggies waitin' for you by the front door? heehee.

*woof*
the booker man

Sandra said...

I love love love the header TWO of our precious Duke

Ann said...

tahtimbo I wish we could lose our snow. I think we're getting a bit of a warm up this week

tanyia creative cropping in that one, had to cut out the really ugly house on the right side...lol

gayle wow, I'm jealous, I would love 70's

grace actually the only thing I did was remove the bluish color cast in them and tweak the contrast. I also like selective color but haven't done it in a while

kloggers brr is right. I've never heard of a liberty bodice so I had to google it to see what it was. I think I need one of those

ginny I think he was upset that I was out there and not coming in to play with him

allotments4you lol, and she was probably right too huh? we're expecting a warm up I hope it lasts this time but I doubt it

fishhawk thanks I knew that one would be your favorite

russ I think both of us have had our fair share of it this year, you more than me but I've still seen enough

marg I hate the snow but I have to admit that it looks pretty

Jen and grumble I did. I grumbled some more when he called and asked if I could take him too. Of course he called and asked when I had just started making dinner.

livintheblues thank you

out on the prairie well he was keeping his dad company, they were both chilling on the couch when I left

catherine darn it all yes they can...lol

duni we sure do, it had all melted until the other day we got hit again

sandra yes I am singing right along. I remember that song well from when I was a kid. My dad and I used to sing it often

booker it would be boring, very very boring :)

sandra thank you, I owe it all to you for the suggestion.

Jean said...

Lovely captures of Winter Wonderland!
But...I'm glad it hit 70 today and I have my door open. Please don't hate me.:)

Sharkbytes (TM) said...

Wow! Beautiful! We mostly got rain. How odd.

Reeni said...

How beautiful! Duke looks so cute waiting for you!

DSS said...

Look at Duke waiting for you :) "Just like the Ceaser Dog on the commercial!". Do you hear that all of the time? We do. Grr...

Tammy said...

Very pretty snowy pictures. Our snow is melting fast. I think after today it might even be gone. Spring here we come.

Ann said...

Jean, won't hate you but I am jealous...lol

sharkbytes it is pretty even though I am sick of it. I think rain would have been worse since our yard is already a swamp

reeni doesn't he though.

dss actually that's the first time I've heard it :)

tammy it's supposed to warm up here so hopefully ours will melt too.
