Weekend Fun - Blue Skies at last!

For well over a month now we have had seriously dark and gloomy weather here. I don't just mean grey, overcast skies. We're used to that!

I mean really, really dark grey days. Days where it feels as though the sun has forgotten to rise at all. Where you need the same amount of lights on in the house during the day time as you do at night.

I had begun to long for the cold, frosty days we had enjoyed at the end of November and the beginning of December. They may have been cold but at least they were bright and somewhat cheerful!

So it was with some joy that Saturday broke the cycle.

We had planned to meet up with some old friends of my husbands and his sister. Since they have three boys the same ages as our oldest three, going for a long walk after lunch seemed like a good way to spend the afternoon!





The grey skies were back again by Sunday, but this time it didn't seem so bad as they brought the snow with them!


  1. Hello, So glad you had a day of sunshine. It is amazing how we have sunshine almost everyday but maybe 20 days out of the year.
    But we have had little or no moisture.
    It looked like everyone was enjoying the fishing,
    we love to fish. Did you catch any?
    Blessings, Roxy

  2. Wow, Kirsteen. Those pictures are absolutely breath-taking!

  3. These pictures took my breath away. Especially the second one with the light touching the trees...wow! And to know this was your first day of sunshine makes it all the more special and meaningful xx

  4. Sunshine is always so welcome after days of gloomy grayness. I totally understand that!!!

    I love, love, LOVE the photos! I LOVE the landscape! What beautiful territory. :) - R
