Mountain Monday

I know it is dark, AND at this hour, almost not even Monday anymore! But, it is still Monday, at least here in Utah. Crazy day, crazy weekend. We had unexpected company in the form of one of older cousins and his wife. Good visit, good stories. Little Man did NOT have school today, and he is on one of his, "I've decided to live without sleep" again phases. It is just a shame I can't join him in that one!
I did get out and get you some pictures.
Winter arrived again last night and this morning, everything was coated in snow. I am rather done with winter, but it isn't done with us. I offer you proof of my credibility in whining. It is spring Mother Nature, not winter! Blah on you!



I love it when the clouds lay so low across the mountains.









Check her out! Our friend, Ms. Tenacious, the oak leaf, still hanging on against tradition and prevailing winds of opinion. What can I say? I always root for the underdog, or underleaf in this case.






Here is Spring, declaring herself that she will stay in Utah, regardless of what the weather forecast is.






I do have a whole bunch of other pics from the past week, but Little Man has been on his "sleeping is against my personal beliefs" kicks and dang, I am tired. The pics will have to wait til Weds or so. YAWN! See ya on the flip side!

I am on that, I need more sleep kick. I don't know what's going on today, but I am exhausted!! I think I will be to bed earlier than 11, which is early for me.

The Boob Nazi said...

I LOVE CLOUDS ON THE MOUNTAINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It reminds me of Jurassic Park or something, but I don't know why.

Jillybean said...

I need more sleep too, but right now I have a bunch of work to do, and it doesn't seem to be getting done without me.
I can't believe how much it snowed today! Our poor tulips are buried.


WV Bolkend.

The opposite of bolkbeginning.

See how sleep deprived I am.

Lisa said...

I'm with Kristina. Must be something in the air. I was crashed at 9 last night after waiting 3 forevers to go to bed. (I was wanting to sleep at 3!)

Loved the pics!
Hoping you get some rest dear!

Bobie said...

I'm so over winter!! Can't wait for beautiful pics of flowers coming from you!! :) Happy Tuesday!!

Yondalla said...

Mountain monday is my favorite part of Tuesday mornings.

Me said...

I am sooo ready for spring!

Sounds needing more sleep is a common theme around these parts (as I yawn).

Jillene said...

I love the pictures Jo--especially the first one. BEAUTIFUL!!

I hope that Little Man is through with his sleeping strike--good luck!!

CaJoh said...

I love how the green is just poking up through the snow.

Love your Mountain Monday posts. Thank you for sharing.

SO said...

Love the mountains. I'm over winter as well but it looks like it's hanging on as long as it possibly can.

I hope the boy doesn't stay in this phase too long.

K J and the kids said...

I don't like your Mountain monday.
I'm sick of the snow ! :(

Lady of Perpetual Chaos said...

I'm so annoyed with Mother Nature right now that I can't even talk to her. And why is it that kids can go on no-sleep jags and not us parents?! We're the ones that need it!

Jessica G. said...

And to think, my kids were wearing shorts this weekend!

rychelle said...

man, that leaf is tenacious because the winds were fierce this weekend!

Jami said...

Hm...I'm beginning to wonder if someone painted that oak leaf on, just to help us hang on and to remind us of certain O. Henry stories.

Debbie said...

Great photos. I am done with winter too!

Bonnie the Boss said...

I love the clouds laying on the mountains! I am sorry about the sleep thing, that just stinks!

Amber said...

I hope you get more sleep soon. I love the clouds crossing the mountains too- but I wish there wasn't snow on those mountains...

3 Bay B Chicks said...

Baby never lets us down, does she Jo? Each and every Monday she delivers us these beautiful pictures.

I think I love Baby too.
