I am not a huge fan of winter. My ideal day would be 85 degrees with a light breeze, plenty of sunshine with a stray cloud here and there, and a glass of ice cold tea. However, here in the Midwest it is about 26 degrees with light snow and yucky brown and gray colors coming up from the icy, dirty snow. The perfect backdrop for pictures. Although I am missing my garden, flowers, green grass and bright sun, I decided to take some pictures around the house. You can see the rest (if you are interested) in my Gallery. Here is to a short winter!
