My Winter World--Memories

Playing along with the My World folks....
A peek into Mental Land today.
This is a dim memory.
And this beautiful sight?
Was this a scant few months ago....
Some things never change.
Sighing.  Out. Loud.

But your snow is so pretty! I'm off to check our weather report and hope for some here ...

Bear Naked said...

LOL at that pile o' tires.
I guess some things never do change in your world.

Bear((( )))

Mama: Those are cute capture of your pool area. Change is inevitable except for the tires.

Deb said...

Aren't you organized to find the befores for this post! I applaud you, really I do! Organization is what I thrive for at the moment. LOL

Louise said...

Beautiful memories. At least you have them. The tires made me laugh.

Please be so kind to put your country after your name when you link from the My World Tuesday site. I took care of it for you today.

Thanks so much for participating!

Ahhh... the memories of summer.

Glad to see Augie's tires still there (not).

Farmer's Almanac says we're going to have a particularly bad winter. Wouldn't it be nice if they were wrong, for once?

The Good Life in Virginia said...

the snow hasn't made the tires disappear...let me get on that shortly :)
have a wonderful week.

Every day I stare at my cold, covered pool and dream of next summer. I don't do cold well....although, I wouldn't mind a white Christmas:)

Big Hair Envy said...

Whoops! Forget to mention that I will have to tell you the UVA story when we meet in person. Let's just say that I have an issue with them!!! **insert evil laugh*

Suz Broughton said...

Great idea comparing the summer scene to the winter one. Those tires still there, uh?

Ellen said...

Try to think of the tire pile as a tire sculpture - not that it will help any, but it sounds better.

I love the snow and hope we here in NJ get a little this year. And as cold as it must be for snow, it looks so pure and clean, it can even make tires look nice.

Magpie said...

Nice tires.

Daryl said...

Some pay a lot of money for sculptures they can keep outdoors .. so you should put a little museum plaque on them and charge admission!

Cool Breeze said...

Love the pool ... what's up with the wheels and tires?

Meg said...

It's raining here. Which means it will freeze. And maybe be covered with snow. Is it April yet?

Starwoodgal said...

I know what you mean (i.e. somethings never change). My son moved back home. Prior to that I was doing laundry (maybe 3 times a week) now - everyday. Every FRIGGIN' DAY!

Not snowing here (arkansas) yet. But, they said it will before tonight. We'll see.

Wren said...

Great sense of humor you bring to your world. Thanks for joining us this week.

SandyCarlson said...

These are wonderful. Doesn't seem all that long ago, and yet--a million years!

Them aren't tires... them there are redneck flowerbeds... silly Mama.

kim-d said...

BWAHAHAHAHA...those damn tires! It reminds me of one of those "can you spot the item that does not fit" thingies. We have lots of the white stuff, too. It doesn't seem quite so bad here, though, because my yard didn't look anything like yours before. What??? Does that make sense? Back to the tires...BWAHAHAHAHA!

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

I love the pool pictures. Shall we have a summer blogfest up your way? Spring in Virginia; summer up there; fall in the mid-west (Grandma J.?) and West Coast for winter.

Oh, and I don't know what BHE is talking about with the UVA people...some of us are OK. Arguably.

noble pig said...

Snow is one thing I don't have so it makes me envious...it looks so pur-tee.

phd in yogurtry said...

Me too. I miss the snow. Or, to be accurate, I miss the first snowfall of the year. Since I am in business for myself with no paid leave, I do not miss snow days.

TSannie said...

I'm with Ellen...think of the tires as art!

Debbie said...

Poor Augie....

I bet them poor ducks are gone South for the winter too! You closed up their house!

Great photos!

Hilary said...

OK now I'm depressed.. sigh!

Looks like you have a lovely pool area.

Country Girl said...

This is great! Hey, I love that little waterfall at your poolside.

Sassy said...

Your yard is beautiful!!! Love the tires, yep I have somethings like that...it sits thru the blazing sun ALL YEAR!!!
