Saturday Snapshot~February 15

I didn’t post on Friday so I’m wishing everyone a belated Happy Valentine’s Day. Hope you got to spend it with someone you love.  I did!

Saturday Snapshot is one of my favorite link ups. Hostessed by the lovely Melinda at West Metro Mommy Reads, it is always great fun.  Please be sure to visit there when you’re finished here to see what everyone is showing today.



As you may have heard on the news…IT’S BEEN SNOWING IN NEW JERSEY!!  Can you tell from my capital letters that I am shouting about this.  I’m only shouting because I am SO TIRED of it.  There…it’s out of my system, no more capitals.  But seriously, I’m tired of it, it’s making me cranky, we got more last night and we’re supposed to get more today.  Someone has to make it stop.

I know how to stop it, or at least get away from it.  I’m going (if only in my fertile mind…) to New Mexico.  It’s sunny and beautiful and it’s going to be 72 degrees there today.  None of this is fair.  But I’m lucky because I know how beautiful it is and I know what’s waiting for me when I get there physically.

Kneeling Nun


I can’t remember if I’ve used this photo before, but I don’t care…I need to see it today and I need to share it.  This is a view of the Kneeling Nun mountain and was taken from the front step of our house.  The photo doesn’t actually do justice to the beauty of the sky or the landscape, but it helps to cheer me up.  I keep this photo as my lock screen on my phone so I can look at it periodically when I need it.  I hope it makes you all feel as warm and happy as it makes me.

Be sure to check out all of the great photography at West Metro Mommy Reads.

Happy Saturday!!

  1. Beautiful photo of a lovely part of the country. I have several photos that I keep at hand to get me through our dark wintry days. They help! Here’s hoping this is the last big snowstorm to hit your area this winter.

  2. What a beautiful view to have on your doorstep. I know what you mean as it is nice to think that it is warm in some bits of the world, if not the bit your actually in.

  3. So sorry you are cold….It has even been a cold winter here along the Texas Gulf Coast. That photo is an instant mood changer, I think. Warm and toasty.

  4. I’m with you, Fran. I am tiring of all the storms and have daffodils on my mind today. I also wish I could be on a tropical beach somewhere very warm and sunny …

  5. 72 degrees!!! I am happy that Minnesota is finally above zero 🙂

  6. Oh, it is good to “see” sunny days when the cold is accumulating around you! Enjoy your visualization…and thanks for visiting my blog.

  7. I agree way better than looking at snow1!!

  8. You’ve got the idea… a virtual escape! That’s exactly what I did for my Sat. Snapshot. Thanks for sharing your imaginary trip. 🙂

  9. I can see why you’d need to look at that lovely picture each day on your phone.

  10. I could use this picture today too. We didn’t get the buckets of snow the East Coast got, but we still have our fair share. It’s also colder than a witch’s t…er, sorry about that. Love the photo. I’m picturing myself in New Mexico right now.
