The Week In Seven Photos

Happy to report that 2020 began on a beautiful note

and thankfully isn’t flying by too fast at this point,

since at this age one really doesn’t want the days to pass in a blur.

The year is in its very early stages of trying to walk a fine path of optimism and because I don’t want anyone to judge if my Baileys on ice glass remains at half full,

we will be referring to these early months as either the lake ice is half full,

half empty

or add another drop of Baileys and an ice cube into my glass while I further ponder the state of my optimism.

  1. I know. I’m with you all the way. Despite what just happened in Iran—I so hope there is no horrible escalation—I am hopeful for 2020 and for our species. Why, I cannot tell you. But I am.

    Really enjoyed the matching of your words to the photos here, ACI, especially that last photo with the extra ice on top. Beautiful photos of the icy times, I especially liked the lake and cloud photos. I hope your new year continues in its beauty and optimism.

    1. Thank you!πŸ™‚ I’m celebrating with the swans and ducks the melting of the ice and briefly wondered if it’s time to get the kayak out!😁 Trying to maintain my optimism as my teams continue to lose with the Buffalo Bills just losing to the Texans, but I’m very optimistic about Brady winning tonight.🏈😁

        That Bills and Texans game was ferocious, and you and I are together in feeling the pain of watching the Patriots lose. Big day today, too. Have fun!

    Much blueness, in colour, not in mood. Definitely lake and glass half full.
