A Note From the Road: Road Trip Wyoming - On the Road Again - I80 - Somewhere in Wyoming

Sing with me everyone, you know the words!
Gearing up for the first road trip of the season Mom!
We are going to stay in Arkansas for the trip - just heading over to Bull Shoals.  Fish found out that the White River is hopping with trout during February so off we go.
It is supposed to snow :D  I made sure the cabin has a fireplace.  But I am looking forward to getting some more Winter pictures.

A Note From the Yard: Road Trip Arkansas - Ziggy in the Yard Hwy 549 NW Arkansas

When in doubt, get a photo of the dog.

Good thing Ziggy is so photogenic Mom.
I had taken the last few days to do a study of tree bark/branches etc.
It sounded like a fine idea in my head, but I am not really feeling any of the photos I took.
Instead, the best picture I have taken lately is the one of Ziggy, my partner in crime.
Dogs always save the day.

A Note From the Road: Road Trip Arkansas - The Birds Are Out - HWY 549 - Bella Vista, Arkansas

Getting a dip in during the warm weather.
It didn't take long Mom - 
Once the sun came out, so did the birds.  The minute the ice melted in the bird bath, the birds were all over that too. I guess I wasn't the only one with cabin fever.

A Note From The Road: Road Trip Arkansas - Good Morning HWY 549 NW Arkansas

A beautiful sunrise can make a beautiful day.

Good Morning Mom!
I was having a sluggish, grouchy morning until I looked outside.
The colors of the sunrise were so pretty this morning.  It is amazing how one beautiful sight first thing in the morning can change your entire outlook for the day.
Look outside for something pretty Mom and have a great day.

A Note From The Road: Road Trip Colorado - A Daisy York St Denver CO

Impatiently waiting for the flowers.....

Hi Mom
The temperature has finally managed to drag itself above 40 degrees and the ice has melted.
Now that it is starting to warm up, I am starting to get anxious for flowers and trees (yes, I know it is only January and so I have a bit to wait for the Spring)
I have some crocus planted, I am looking forward to seeing them soon.

A Note From the Road: Road Trip Arkansas - The Southern Deep Freeze AR Hwy 549 NW Arkansas


Mom it is cold outside!
The weather people say it should be warming up a bit this week but really going from below freezing to right above freezing doesn't really count for me.
Did you see the snow in Georgia & Florida?  Fruit is going to be pricey this year.

A Note From the Road: Road Trip Arkansas Frozen Drops AR HWY 549 NW Arkansas

Embracing the cold I caved and pulled out my cold weather gear Mom
I was stir-crazy in the house and because I have the gear for this weather, there really is no reason for me to hunker down in the house any longer.
It is amazing how much more refreshed you feel with a breath of fresh air.

A Note From the Road: Road Trip Arkansas - Snowy Lane AR HWY 549 NW Arkansas

A Renewal
I got my wish Mom!
We had a bit of snow - and now a continuing arctic deep freeze.
It has been lovely, sitting around the fire with the family, reading, conversing and taking naps - for days and days and days.
Now with the New Year, we are rested and ready to take on the world.  Jilly bought me a travel map for Christmas, I need to decide what to scratch off next.
