Mountain Monday, Now With Sunshine!

Today was a beautiful day. Outside. Warm and sunny. I wish I could have appreciated it more. Little Man had a very off day. He doesn't like having his schedule messed with and today was no exception. The next nine days are going to be excruciating if today was any indication. I am hoping it is not. He got sent home from his theraputic afterschool program after less than an hour for hitting, scratching and spitting on people. I wasn't amused. Good thing the man got home before the sun went down, otherwise there wouldn't be a single picture for you today.
I did have a bright spot in my day of lunch out with An Eagles View and Bonnie from The Zoo. I even got some presents! Whoo hoo for nice friends who give you birthday presents. Ladies, you have no idea what it meant today!
So, hopefully for your viewing pleasure, Mountain Monday!

Lovely crocuses, or would that be croci? (I looked it up, it is both!)












It makes my heart glad to see that Spring is arriving in spite of the last few snowstorms!

Almost full moon



And a close up















I never go out on Mondays to take pictures without taking time to take deep breaths, to breathe in the wonder all around me, and to feel grateful that I am able to enjoy it. A moment of meditation and stillness in a rather rugged day, makes that oasis especially blessed. Thanks for taking time to motivate me to do it.

They're all beautiful, but I especially love the third croci picture. Keep taking deep breaths. You'll make it.

Isn't it wonderful that the sun is coming out??? I love the Croci pictures and the moon *sigh* I love seeing the moon in a blue sky.

I hope that little man isn't too thrown off his game and will settle down for you.

Love the moon shots— very tranquil.

So glad that you have these Mountain Monday's they allow us to take in the mountain air as you do.

Thank you,

Oohhh! I love pic #3...great job!
I'm doing bridals this Friday. Do you have any suggestions on where I should take the bride. She wants scenery...but she also wants her pics to be edgy.

Help!!!
