Daytime temps have begun their downward slide and today's high was 25F with a wind chill of 14. With several prescriptions to renew Pheebs and I headed off to Goderich this morning. Secondary roads were slippery with ice and hard-packed snow. With my last few posts top-heavy with photos I was determined to keep my picture-taking down to a dull roar this morning. And, so I did. Home again I topped up the bird feeders and dusted off a couple of my snow paths. The bulk of the afternoon was spent reading. I'm sure glad I re-discovered my old childhood reading hobby a decade ago because it has led to countless hours of sheer entertainment for me these past years. I was a real bookworm way back when. Reading is such a great way to productively while away the hours.
IF IT LOOKS COLD IT IS BECAUSE IT IS COLD WE HAD TO PLOW A BIT OF SNOW TO REACH PHEEBS PIT STOP AREA THIS MORNING

Ellen's Groove:)) This video really shows Ellen's progression and it is her best so far. She starts off playing a 'fretless' bass and I especially love how she powered through a few little flubs along the way. Her dad Hovak follows with a short explanation of the equipment they are using for this video and then Ellen does her Top Ten Bass Guitar Lines-Part Two. If you haven't seen any of Ellen's previous videos you really should see this one. If you have been following her from the beginning like I have, it is truly amazing how far she has progressed. She is well on her way to becoming one of the best bass guitar players ever. She has the music and rhythm in her just bursting to get out. With her bubbly personality and infectious laughs and giggles, I'm sure she will go far in life. So, if you are not aboard the bandwagon yet, climb aboard this young ten-year-olds rocketship and ride with her to the stars. Ellen's Top Ten Part Two.
I WAS ABLE TO FIND A FEW SPLASHES OF COLOR ON THIS GRAY DRAB DAY

My young daughter was wearing a beat-up old watch a friend had given her. I asked her, "Does it tell the time?" My daughter looked at me and said, "No, you have to look at it."
I’m so glad you posted that section. It was my favorite being from Oregon. So simple, it as Oregon and it was raining. PeggyReplyDelete
Seeing the photos of the lake all I can think is Brrrrrr.ReplyDelete
I love the color you find in winter! Ellen's parents must be so very proud of her. She's amazing and her expressions and giggling make me laugh. It all seem so effortless to her. Hope I'm around to see where she lands.ReplyDelete
As usual, thanks for the groaners, they make my day. The shots of the Lake are wonderful, so evocative. Winter can be a beast! LindaReplyDelete
I'm a mad bookworm too, and it helps me survive these days!ReplyDelete
