A promise of sunshine

We had an early-morning appointment for Jilda to get an MRI....it's a long story, but suffice it to say we had to set an alarm clock, which is something I haven't done in quite some time.
The procedure took about an hour and we were on our way home. The weatherman kept saying it wasn't that cold, but there was a misty rain falling with wind out of the north, so it felt cold standing in my shoes.
We haven't seen the sun in days, which tends to dampen my spirits. 
As we topped the mountain a few miles from our house, I saw a patch of blue sky nestled in the dense grey clouds.
A promise of sunshine, I thought to myself. By the time we pulled in the driveway, the clouds were breaking up nicely and the sun found its way through.
Once home, I stepped out on our south-facing deck and let the sun warm my face. The wind was still cold, but somehow that little bit of sunshine warmed my spirits.
I snapped this photo of our blueberry bush this afternoon.
Happy Wednesday everybody.

    I love your photos/paintings!!

  2. It sure looks good with the artistic effects Rick. I hope Jilda is doing well.
    You are such a nice couple.

  3. I hope all's well with Jilda. You would not like my town this time of year. I was excited to see Sun yesterday...Gray is in season ! I don't think our blueberries even have leaves now. I hope the sun continues to shine on you all! (Hey, I almost sound southern!) Before I forget...I can't comment on your blog from my computer...just my kindle. I'm sure it's a computer issue but I'm geek challenged!

  4. We have sunshine today too after a few days not seeing it for a few days and oh it is great to feel it shining on my face. : )
    A happy day to you too.

  5. Send some of your weather our way please! It's below zero wind chill here and very low temperatures all around, not to mention the snow we're getting. Glad someone saw sunshine they could go out and enjoy without worrying about frostbite. Please send us some of your weather!
