Middle of the Week Photos

Five o'clock rush hour as the snow starts to come down. I love the beauty of the snow and I also love the fact that we need the moisture desperately but I dislike driving in it! Say some prayers tomorrow. I know we are not alone, it seems everyone from Tucson to Buffalo has been getting snow! Kansas is getting hit hard, in fact, Nick's college closed at noon today and will not be opened tomorrow. Praying is always good for starving college kids! Kansas has lots of icy rain too so it makes driving conditions dangerous!
I usually catch the morning sun rising here at the top of the bridge when I am returning from the RTD bus stop where my hubby catches his morning bus! Today at 6:45 A.M. the sun was hiding! Clouds were filling the sky.
Some sunshine hiding but rising yesterday morning in the early morning hours.
I am off my game! My hubby has had a terrible cough along with bronchitis for three weeks! Of course, in the middle of it all, I got sick too! Sinus junk! Our middle daughter has a new vaporizer so we are using that and getting as much rest as we can when we are not at work! He missed three days of work and I missed a half day with a bad migraine starting my sinus infection. Good thing we can see the ENT doctor! I work for him!
This is a set of three trays from one of my favorite Victorian catalog companies. I am hoping to buy  a set because I need something to hold all my "stuff: when I am resting.
We have been drinking a lot of hot tea. I like lemon, my hubby likes lots of honey. We use this kind of honey:
We buy as much local products and produce as we can! This tasty honey is from Colorado's Western slope.
My favorite Twining teas include Earl Grey and Earl Gray decaf tea and Lady Grey! My hubby loves Darjeeling as does our oldest daughter! We have a really cool electric tea kettle:
I am not getting anything for telling you about my Hamilton Beach electric tea kettle but it is awesome! It heats water in about 7 minutes. I have many tea kettles and tea pots but this one is my favorite to heat water in!
A different photo I took with my new iphone last week. You can see the outline of the Catholic church that is within walking distance of my house. The sun rise is so majestic that I dwell on God's love and His masterpieces that fill the skies!
I missed many of my favorite meme's this weekend. So am I am sharing a few. Hope you like the Love is... here. I could actually write my love in the snow because I don't live near the seashore but I think the message here is sweet and very clear! I hope you visit Marydon and share some Love is...with her too.

Sweet blue tea for one. I received one of these from my Secret Santa partner this past Christmas. A cheery teapot when you are under the weather. I hope you have visited Sally and all the Blue crew for Blue Monday! I had my post ready to go and I was too tired to put it up!
Finally this 1 Thessolonians 5:18 Scripture is my input for Charlotte and all the wonderful people who make Spiritual Sunday a day of  encouragement and Linda for sharing GratitudeSunday with all of us and inviting us to join her. I am grateful for so many things in my life and you are all a part of it too. Although we have had our share of mild health issues we have been blessed to have avoided the "big" stuff at this time in our lives. Perhaps I will make a list of grateful things in my own life. Thanks Linda, you are a real doll!
I have shared some of my own photos as well as wonderful google images.  I hope you enjoyed my middle of the week share.

Your Pink Sat. Colorado photo is magnificent. wishing yo & hubby quick recovery ... it has been a winter for germs! Have you ever tried STASH teas ... they are my fav ... the aroma is lingering, the flavor is deelish, the English breakfast is what I enjoy most but they are all fabulous. The pics of the church rise reaching the Heavens, ... He keeps us in tune to His message, thankfully so.

Have a beautiful weekend, sweetie.

I hope you both get well. We are to get some of what you had, not quite as much. I dislike the sleet part. We still have 6 weeks of this stuff.

We are to get snow and freezing rain starting anytime now. Sorry you all have been feeling yucky, its going around here, too. We are finally starting to get over it, buts its been so long!
Stay warm and do the honey. It kills bacteria. Get well.

Denise said...

So sorry to hear you've been down n' out ... this stuff going around is wicked!
I love the snow, but it's been so many years I'd be afraid to try and drive in it today.

Wishing you ALL a cozy, warm eve!
