Thank you all for your birthday wishes for my sweetheart. We enjoyed the day...and even got outdoors a bit in the sunshine. Great to see El Sol again, even if it were only for a day!

I've had marshes on my mind lately. Don't know why, but for some reason I've been thinking and dreaming of those Charleston estuaries teeming with the beginnings of sealife. I found a photo reference of a marsh and sunrise and used it to dream about warm days and the sultry summers our family used to spend on those marshes so many years ago.

The days, even with a bit of sun, are still mighty cold, but each evening as daylight lingers longer, we know spring will be here soon. I"m hoping we'll get a bit more snow before then, though it seems rain is more in the forecast over the next few weeks.

We've another busy week with several workshops planned .... hope you stay warm....!

Lovely warmth to this one of the marsh sunrise!!! It reminds me of my trips down to the Myrtle Beach area.

We missed the last storm but there is another one headed our way for tomorrow night into Wednesday. Hope it bypasses you. Have a great day!!
