Wordless (Winter) Wednesday 6

Across the frozen water
On the marsh

I’d rather be…

Stay with friends!
Leave the artificial heating!
Be in nature!

The first picture was taken yesterday and the next two from my recent hike. As you see, it was freezing but I enjoyed every moment even when I had to slide on a slope. The trail was super steep and sliding was a safe option. The third photo is of frozen late. I learned that it is rather very hard and dangerous to walk on soft snow on a lake. I shall not dare next time.

I saw the Photo challenge on Wednesday late evening but instead on working on photo challenge on ‘Thursday and Friday, I did what I love doing 😀

Have a nice weekend!


Nurturing Thursday: You decide


For Becca’s Nurturing Thursday:

You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them ~Maya Angelou

I was watching the sea gull for quite some time and could see that she had pain in her right foot but she didnot give up and was busy in her regular activities.

The weather is very unusual this year and is breaking records in various ways. Recently there were many sunny (white winter snow) days and temperature was constantly below zero. Suddenly it crossed the zero mark yesterday, melted some snow and without any warnings it was below zero again.

This temperature game put lot of pressure at the emergency clinic this morning. There were more than 50 casualties just between 8 – 10 am with fractures. People had to wait for more than an hour or two to get x-rays.

Last week I hurted my fingers and today I fell down. It happened so quickly, one moment I was crossing the road and just as I was on pavement I fell down. There was no snow, no ice but the stones on pavement were super slippery. Uff!!! Luckily I was wearing thick winter jacket and good mittens. It was and is hurting but is under control. The thought of going back home didnot come to my mind. I decided to be at work. I hope all is fine with bones and the pain will go away.

Dear readers take care of yourself.



Weekend walk along the frozen (!) river


A river cuts through rock, not because of its power but due to persistence ~Jim Watkins


Time is like river. You cannot touch the same water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again. Enjoy every moment of your life. ~Unknownweekend49_4

I wanted to capture some photos containing repetitions during my walk along the river today. Strange but I could not see any pattern. Am I a bad observer? Anyways the temperature was not very promising and so after a while I gave-up and enjoyed my walk  capturing what I found different 🙂

Hope you like the images.
