THE APRIL 1ST ODDBALL CHALLENGE

Long walk in a very small mall

Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: April 1, 2018


And so April arrives. The weather is pleasant, finally. Not exactly cozy, but not so cold. The crocuses are up and the day lilies are pushing their way out of the ground too. Another few weeks and it will REALLY feel like spring.

ODDBALLS IN A SPRING THAT HASN’T SPRUNG. YET.

Where things go and what lies behind

Spring was a week ago and a few minutes ago, snowflakes were drifting from the sky. It wasn’t much of a snow and only lasted a few minutes, but it isn’t quite the weather for which we have been hoping.

Cold, mainly. I think — I believe — the snow or at least any significant amount of it, is finished. But the temperatures are well below normal and I’m ready to get out of heavy sweaters and into something a little more frivolous and lightweight.

ODDBALLS AND STRANGENESS – GARRY & MARILYN ARMSTRONG

Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: March 18, 2018

Snowy selfie – Photo: Garry Armstrong

Oddballs. I have been taking a lot of strange pictures in the house. The outside has been difficult to negotiates. Garry, though, has been out there, frozen fingers and all. Kudos to him!

Although a lot of snow has melted, especially on areas that get a lot of sun, there’s still plenty around elsewhere.

The woods is full of snow and along the road, there are huge piles of it created by the plows.

Recycling only please! Photo Garry Armstrong

It’s a good time to follow Gibbs’ lead: enjoy the sofa. Have another cup of coffee!

Warm inside, snow outside

 

ODDBALLS – PICTURES OF WHATEVER, TAKEN WHENEVER

Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: March 11, 2018


Oddballs. I have so many pictures. Well and truly have I lost track of what’s odd. Life is odd. I think my pictures are probably a lot less odd than the rest of life!

I don’t know why I have taken down the little Christmas tree. Maybe it goes so well with the two Celebriducks?
Note the three squeaky dog toys hanging from the handle of the microwave. I know I should just give them to the dogs, but I am waiting until the snow and ice melt — give them to them on a nice day when there s a 50-50 chance the toys won’t be instantly buried in mud in under five minutes?

 

ODDLY ENOUGH

Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: March 4, 2018


Oddly enough, after all the wind and rain … it’s still gray and cold. Usually, following a major storm, we get a couple of bright sunny days. The wind and rain clear the air and I look forward to the sun coming out.

Not this time. We are still in a mix of ever-changing weather. No two days are alike. Warm, cold, windy, dry, snow, melting, more snow. More rain. No sun for weeks at a time. Sometimes, by mid afternoon, it is as dark as night.

More posters

It’s a good time for oddballs in this oddest of worlds.

ODDBALLS WHILE FEBRUARY ENDS IN A PILE OF MUD

Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: February 25, 2018


I should be grateful that all this precipitation is rain rather than snow. Someone calculated that if this were snow, it would be more than two feet … and that would make me even sadder than the mud field out front. It really IS ugly, though.

Coffee?

It’s the dog’s yard, so it probably wouldn’t be lovely anyway, but all the rain has melted away any remnant of grass that might have been there. The frequent wind storms have left a far larger collection of branches and twigs there, too. There’s a lot of cleanup to do when finally, it isn’t raining, snowing, or sleeting.

Candles. No wind. 
It’s the kitchen!
