Many parts of our beautiful country are currently experiencing severe winter weather conditions.
Denver is no exception.The snow here started falling shortly before daybreak on Sunday..and continues to fall.
Having been indoors most of last week with the flu, and this past weekend unable to be out because of the weather,I'm beginning to feel slightly stir-crazy!
Not quite as bad as Jack Nicholson  in the Shining which was conceived by Stephen King while staying at the Stanley hotel in Estes Park, Colorado!

The weather was indeed frightful..

especially for those who HAD to be out and about..

But there are always brave souls who enjoy being out in  the snow..

Not me.. I prefer looking out the windows..

Loving the rumble of snowplows..

My faves are the plows clearing runways at the airport..

clearing the way for takeoffs after the de-icing treatment

Transporting me to the place I want to be..
soaking up the sun..
on the beaches of home..

surfer girl background
maybe building sandcastles..

or enjoying simply BEING me....
totally relaxed and rejuvenated..
body and soul..
these wishful dreams will become reality..

Please join Smiling Sally for more Blue Monday Moments..
and Drowsy Monkey for Mellow Yellow Monday.


  1. Glad you're feeling better now. I wish those beautiful sunny photos were what we were experiencing here in Florida but is 63 degrees but yesterday never got above 43. Don't believe all the travel brochures. Stay safe and warm and visit all us bloggers.

  2. What a huge contrast between the two weather. I just saw the news today and the south is beat up with lots of snow. Here in MI we don't have snow that much but our temperature stays below freezing for this past few weeks. Keep warm and be safe!
    Mellow Yellow Monday

  3. Brr... I prefer to see snow from the computer!

    I love those summer shots.

    Happy Blue Monday, Loui; stay warm!

  4. Girl.. I am lovin your photos!
    Happy Blue Monday!

  5. Loui, all the pictures are lovely.

    I hope you have a wonderful time....relaxing and calming. Be safe.

    Hugs, Barb

  6. Hi, Loui!

    I'm so sorry you've been sick. I've had that nasty stuff, too, and was in for three weeks. I'm up now, but still kind of weak and out of it. Here's hoping you are in full swing soon.

    We've had some grey days, but it was nice today and in the 60's. We actually had a warm wind blowing from the south, and this afternoon, we have rain in Central Florida where I am today. My post today is tropical... a group of garden club members decorated our house for Christmas, and they used palms and other tropical accents. I think I'm going to copy them next year with similar decor... only maybe faux. The inside things didn't last till Christmas. ;-)

  7. I would surely take the beach over the snow any day. Wonderful photos. Happy MYM!

  8. I find that the older I get, the less I like Winter. I love the beach pictures that you posted. I got to get away for a moment(at least in my mind!)
    Hope you are doing well.

  9. Brrrr...those photos make me cold! Actually, it's been cold, dreary and windy here...very un-Florida like.


  10. Beautiful pictures and sentiments, Loui. Those snow pictures make me appreciate our Mississippi weather, even though it IS cold.

    Hope your weekend is warm and cozy.


welcome to my world of salty sunkissed breezes..
where time is not measured..
linger leisurely..
sift sugary white sand between your toes..
Make and take those wonderful memories..
leaving behind..only your footprints...
