Snow and geese

March 2013 004a

Today’s view of the pond

To what can our life on earth be likened?
To a flock of geese,
alighting on the snow.
Sometimes leaving a trace of their passage.

~ Su shi

The snow is flying on this cold Sunday in March, and I’m just settling back in at home after spending the weekend with my granddaughters and their parents.  It was lovely, and one of my favorite ways to spend a weekend.

Stars on stage

Yesterday I watched as one of my beautiful granddaughters performed in a dance competition.   I sat with the other beautiful granddaughter — the youngest — while we waited for her sister to perform.  We colored, we cut, we pasted, and we made butterflies dance and flutter through the air as girls danced and fluttered on the stage.

Dance, dance, dance

South of here, where the girls and their parents live, they had the most beautiful snowfall.  I think they may have gotten more snow down there than we had up here, but we’ll probably make up for it with lake-effect snow tonight.

That’s it from the Bogs for today.  After two days of not checking blogs or email, I am even farther behind than ever.  Hopefully, I’ll get caught up soon.  Thank you so much for visiting.  I hope your weekend was filled with magic and, if you were very lucky, a few butterflies of your own.  🙂

    I’ve caught a bugger of a cold virus — so thanks for these beautiful images. I’m always appreciative of your photos and words, yet today, as I linger listlessly about the house, I am even more so.

    Looks like a very colorful weekend.
    Love the “snow” geese picture ….

    • Robin says:

      Thanks, Bearyweather. 🙂 I almost labeled it “snow geese,” but they’re not. I saw snow geese for the first time recently. Didn’t have a chance to get any photos, though.

    It’s okay to stay away from all that “checking” to just “be” for a couple of days. I do that every weekend. Pretty sure no one notices but me. Love you photos.

    We are in for another storm tonight. I am tired of shoveling.

  10. “Stars on stage” is so enchanting! I cannot think of a better way to spend a weekend than to be visiting grandchildren. I still remember how thrilled I was whenever my grandparents traveled to come see me in various childhood stage performances…

    Nice (chilly) picture of geese – most appropriate quote
