I’m trying to be positive about ice. I’m trying to find something good to say about icy weather. So here are my thoughts….
I love ice in my drinks. Whether its summer time or winter, I like ice in my drinks. I LOVE ice cream
Icy weather brings more togetherness in our family. No one is rushing out the door during icy cold weather. We snuggle more. We cook more. We play more games. We talk more. We go out less which means we spend less.
Icy weather is great! What do you do during bad weather that you normally don’t do when the weather is bright, sunny, and warm?
I’ve decided to do a Friday’s Random Photos category where I can share a few snapshots that don’t fit into a blog post for that week. I’ve discovered I have a ton of snapshots in my archives that would be fun to share outside of a wordy post. Hope you enjoy!
Durian fruit – we could smell the fruit a block away (slight exaggeration). What does it smell like? Imagine the smell of a couple of dirty shoes/socks stuck in a bag. Now pretend you are opening the bag and vapors of the nasty smelling odor slowly oozing out… yup, it smells like that.
The steamed buns are delicious! Our favorite kind are the pork filled buns.
E. Nanjing Watchdog Weather Station. These are new and can be found on Pedestrian Street, E. Nanjing Rd. Interesting
Monica was petting this bunny until the sales lady motioned with her hands that she could eat it. Poor Monica immediately put the bunny back with disgust. This is the daughter that doesn’t eat much meat.
Street fruit vendor – he carries the fruit baskets from a long bamboo yoke.
These photo’s were taken in Shanghai, E. Nanjing Pedestrian Street, one of the largest shopping area’s of the city. What was the excitement? Would you believe snow had many people pointing and taking pictures? In the last picture, I was able to capture the young ladies expression, the simple joy of snow and the photo’s she had caught on her camera. Great timing!
This weeks Weekly Photo Challenge is a Selfie. Yesterday we had temperatures of 34 F here in Luxu. We finally had a winter like day with a mix of snow. The wet snow reminded me of the beautiful state of Michigan, our home. In a blink of an eye it was gone! So much for enjoying the beauty….
I took this selfie during my walk around the lake. The snow had melt and the day was pretty bright. I don’t take selfies very often and actually I feel quite silly doing so. What the heck, here it goes……
The afternoon was so windy I had to wear my scarf over my ball cap so I didn’t lose my cap. I felt silly but didn’t want to lose the ONE cap that fits my big head!…
To give you an idea what the snow was like here is a pic of my husband….
These two photo’s were taken on a warm rainy day during the month of October 2013. The sky was gray and the rain wouldn’t let up. Not letting rain hold him back, Mike decided to go on a bike ride and ended up getting lost. He was on a small bridge when he noticed the house in the distance. The bridge, like many other bridges in the area, had some pretty cool architectural elements. Through one of the decorative openings, he took his first photo. The second photo was from the top rail of the bridge.
If you look closely the first photo has a spider web in the opening. You can see and feel the windy rainy day and the rain drops in the water in the second photo.
It’s early evening with no air movement. Temperatures are in the high 90’s and it’s a bit stagnant near the open market. It’s no wonder these men didn’t want to take their dog’s for a walk. Regardless of the heat, … Continue reading →
