Pictures of my Day

Looking out across from Gill at the other side of the river, which is the town of Turners Falls.

as always, click to enlarge

It was really cold out today but sunny with pretty, puffy clouds in the sky. It was probably in the low 20's but with wind chills of I'm guessing -20. Especially down by the river where some of these pictures were taken.

I hope you enjoy them and that you're having a good weekend.
I'm thinking today of how many kind people I've met through blogging. Thank you to Cunning Runt, Bobbie, Dianne, Steve, Susan, Linda, Betmo, Mark, Liberality, Sherry, Lisa, Ed, Kenju, Singing Bear, Maithri, Libhom, homeyra, Ben, Mary, and I hope I didn't forget anyone.

You make blogging worthwhile.

Namaste, my friends

Across the river in the town of Gill

Icicles off a building in North Franklin County

The River as seen from the front of our house. When this picture was taken, we'd just been looking at two bald eagles alighting on and off on the frozen river water. I imagined they were skating and having fun. They seemed to my imagination to be cavorting. But this panoramic view puts these large birds outside of my ability to photograph with the dinky camera I have.

Lamps inside the country restaurant where he had lunch. Fried scallops sandwich with french fries and cole slaw. My favorite American food. Second only to a wholebelly clam sandwich. Yum.

How did you all spend your daylight Saturday hours?


  1. i lay around like a slug. just one of those days i guess.

    lovely pictures.

  2. I could enjoy looking at your pictures all day.

  3. Thanks for the kind words about blog friends!

    Today was Oldest's interview and portfolio showing at the College of Design he wants to get into. We've been preparing a long time - he's done a lot of work - we have no idea how it went (the interviewer was pretty hard to read, according to Oldest - we weren't there for the actual interview).

    Then on to birthday celebration at Dearest's Mother's house - Youngest and I like to celebrate ours together there (we're less than a month apart).

  4. your area looks much like mine :) cold, sunny and lovely. and my gutters drip and freeze too :) spent yesterday doing laundry and resting in the comfy chair with the two furry lap leeches :) perhaps today will be round two :) namaste

  5. How quickly you forget me. ;-) [I know, I know: you probably scrolled down your blog-roll, Gina, to remind yourself, and what w/ me being without...]

    My major accomplishments today were putting out the phone bill (it's due tomorrow), buying a Sunday paper, and cleaning my toilet (I was also a reader this morning at church: Jonah in the city of Nineveh). Hey, when you're of the Depressed Unemployed tribe, that IS a good day!

  6. These are really good photos, Gina. You have a very natural eye.

  7. JCF: I'm really kicking myself for forgetting you. Really, how could I? You're one of my best virtual pals. We really should keep in touch more via email, since you don't have a blog. Write me! Tell me about the reading in church.

    Iºll make it up to you, J. Youºll see! youºll see! hugs
