Cool day

Icicles formed in my beard as we walked this morning. A stern wind out of the north turned my cheeks the color of a blush and made me thankful I'd thought to slip on my gloves. But walking briskly in cooler weather felt good.

The grey shroud overhead gave me an idea of how the skies in Bejing must look like on most days. I wasn't convinced  the sun would ever shine again.

But this afternoon when we were loading our car to go to our monthly songwriter meeting, the clouds parted and the winter sun felt warm on my neck.

By the time we got home most of the heavy clouds had swept off to the east leaving a beautiful evening sky.

Both Jilda and I have made headway on our goals we set for the new year.  I hope your weekend has been a good one.


  1. Congratulations on making headways on your new year goals. I'm making some slow headways too.
    It looks like a distorted ghost face in the sky in this picture Rick. It almost looks alien, lol.
    have a great day.

  2. My goals are coming along too...healthy eating takes much planning and buying! Have a great day!

  3. I love to see the fire red sunsets. I take pictures of them all the time. I have actually reached one of my goals for the new year already. (on the Blog soon. :)

  4. Brrrrrr....
    Made me cold to read about the icicles in your beard.
    So glad that the afternoon was a wee bit warmer.
    I love to feel the sun shining on me on a cold day. Feels like a heater in the sky. I guess that it actually is!

  5. It is a cold one out there today! It sounds like a nice walk even if it was cold and love the sunset picture

  6. Ha, the memories. Ice-cycles in the beard. Been many years and I don't want to recall the days in the North Atlantic, but I enjoy the memories. You guys are tough, makes me smile. I don't know how I am late getting some alerts! I love the picture..
