A watercolor I did of the Manassas (Bull Run) Battlefield. It was below zero that day and no one else was on the battlefield.

It was warmer outside this morning than inside. Also at ground level - perfectly still, while above, the clouds were moving rapidly. Perfect morning. Love the overcast as much as the sunny days. Colors will peak soon.

The stinkers of the bird world, but gorgeous as well - the Blue jay. Two of them are residents of our yard. Really want to get a close up photo of them. But every time I have my camera, they fly far away. So today, with coffee cup in my hand, and no camera - one lands 5 feet from me on the deck and stares at me - the little stinker.

I do a lot of the cooking, so I love to shop for groceries. I went to the grocery store and I found myself thinking aloud going from produce to produce. Thinking aloud isn't what's bothering me. It's the fact that I don't care that I'm thinking aloud is what bothers me.
