Three Things

Gwynn's Island, January 2009

Welcome to Three Thing Thursday, where I share three things--usually whatever happens to be jostling against my few still-functioning brain synapses-- and you share three things.  Whatever you want.  Anything at all.

I'll go first.

1.  The photo above was taken in January of 2009 on Gwynn's Island as the sun was rising over the bay. Each grain of wood seemed to silently and stoically compete for every speck of light and shred of warmth.

2.  Yesterday we enjoyed (or tolerated, depending on your perspective) just about every possible weather phenomenon.  At the crack of dawn?  Rain.  Noon?  Thunder.  Bedtime?  Hail Snowflakes.  Not once, not even for a second? Sunshine. Right now I completely understand the silent elation competition for sunlight and warmth going on in the photo above.

3.  This week I had the pleasure of hearing from two readers with a connection to Gwynn's Island.  I doubt they know each another, but they both expressed a desire to see more photos of the island.  It's been a month of Sundays since I've been over there to take pictures, so my goal for the weekend is to take a jaunt to the island with camera in tow. I can't wait.

That's all that's fit to print in my world.  Now it's your turn to share three things, and if one of those three things involves the sun, or a countdown to spring, or talk of daffodils?  All the better.

*Michigan does get sunny days ... in July.
*But sunny days end with mosquitoes.
*I guess I'll put on another layer of clothing and embrace this gray, mosquito-less day.

Beautiful sunshine yesterday, freezing fog today.

Seeing iMom tonight for her hair color.

Rumor has it that we're planning something fun for the summer. I wonder what it could be?

1. Let's see..yesterday it rained, then sleeted, then snowed. Grey dreary day, but what's new?
2. Okay, I've had enough. Bring on the sun. I don't care how cold it is, just need to see the sun!
3. I'm going to force myself to do housework today cause hubby has an endoscopy scheduled for Friday morning. Hoping that the doc can find out what's going on with hub's stomach! Going now to get b u s y

I heard the weather report about thunder storms off the coast ... and we were supposed to get some snow .. well it turned into another HUGE dumping of snow .. over a foot .. GAH ...not a single doctor visit for Toonman has happened without snow or sleet being involved ...

I know what you mean about the crazy weather--thunder and lightning! Rain, snow. They say if you don't like the weather in VA to just wait 5 minutes and that's about right. It always changes.

I get over to Gwynn's Island almost every day as I often get lost/sidetracked on my home from the grocery store. :) The light has been very good, even at sunset, and haven't gotten too many great photos. Still, I persist!

1. Fun in the snow here. Think I'll go back outside.
2. Can't believe how much snow they have up north.
3. Another snow day off tomorrow. Already called.

1. I've really been enjoying your blog & especially the pictures. Thanks to 2011 blog cabin, I found you.

2. My Boston Terrier makes piggie sounds all the time, which makes me laugh...

3. And when I look at your pictures I feel homesick, the water calls to me.

Everyone check out Nate's Pics - he was one of the folks who contacted me about having a Gwynn's Island connection. His photographs are outstanding, truly.

Sherri- So glad you enjoy the pictures. I'll try to get more water scenes up soon.

Thanks to you all for reading and especially for taking the time to comment. It means a great deal.

It's almost Friday!
