White Wednesday


This "White Wednesday" finds me grounded at home! Let's see, I haven't been at Country Roads now for almost eight days! It has been a very long time since something has kept me away from the love of my life! But I have to say, this bronchitis stuff and it's friends have done a dandy job of keeping me at home. My bedroom faces my backyard which is mostly pool. I was born and raised in Southern California, and at heart, I'm a beach bum. A quick ten minute drive takes to the place I love the best, the beach!  My bedroom faces my backyard, and as I've sat in bed this week looking outside at my own little private "escape", I started noticing all of my loved & weathered "whites". I know I've got a few months before I can sit out here with a cold Corona and watch all the seagulls fly back to the beach, but I can dream of warmer days. I know many of you have plenty of your own "cold" whites on this Wednesday with all the snow. But hey, we are spoiled out here and we pay a dear price to live in the SoCal sunshine. Below are some of my favorite weathered "whites" just out my bedroom door!


















I know Spring is just around the corner for us all, and I for one, am very excited about that! Enough of this cold for me!! Please stop by and visit one of my very favorite blogs that one of my very favorite people, Kathleen, writes. I hope this "White Wednesday" sends us all some bright sunshine our way! Take care.

Hi Sue,
Just catching up on reading my favorite blogs. At least being stuck in bed, you have really cool things to look at. I am really glad to hear you are "trying" to rest and follow doctor's orders. Your post of Bodhi is so precious, what a happy looking little guy. His pictures put a smile on my face :) So sorry to hear about your dear friend, Faith. Hard to make sense of some things--try to concentrate on the happy times/memories of her. Bless you, keep resting, and hope you are out and about in no time.

OMG you guys have the greatest finds... these Beach Treasures are FABULOUS! Even though you've been 'down' sick you have certainly kept working through the eyes of the lens, you can't keep a good Gal down really can you? *winks*
