Our first Tuesday of the month, I am happy to see January behind us-it was a rough one with the bitter cold. I am linking up with Bleubeard and Elizabeth T party where we share our week with a drink related photo-find link in my sidebar.
Hoping those of you on the east coast have warmed up a bit now. I saw some unbelievable wind chill temps of minus 108 F and more-I don't think I have ever seen that cold of a temperature before. Brrr Here in the ozarks we are finally enjoying a bit of warm up. Still very cold in the early mornings but today it warms up to the 60's F with sunshine and then will drop down again. Missouri in this area is known for these huge weather swings.
The full moon-the snow moon-was February 5th and it was glorious here. Still amazing this morning as well. I grabbed the camera as I saw it over in the area looking out the front door up where the eagle pair sits. I caught it just before it sunk into the trees
and last night over the lake
I was pleased I was able to capture the moon photos with my old camera
and this morning's sunrise (Monday)
Last night I was cold so I made another mug of hot chocolate with mini marshmallows Behind my mug you will find the 4th edition of the Yellowstone wolves by Mcintyre. I have been wanting to buy this book since it was released last year but the price of the book has been high-at least for me too expensive. Every few weeks or so I check online, and last week I found a copy that was like new for a reasonable price with the option to submit a lower price. I put in $15.00 including his shipping price and the seller took it. I am very happy to finally get this book.
I couldn't believe that Amazon Fedex is now delivering on Sundays. Surprise-my KC Chiefs blanket arrived this past Sunday. Here is a photo from the site Do you like to buy blankets of your favorite teams? Over the years I almost always make my own blankets for the teams I follow. Fabric.com is a great site for buying the fleece. My Green Bay Packers blankets finally bit the dust, and I wanted one for the Chiefs this year, so I decided to purchase one instead of making one. This blanket is very very soft and large 60x80 inches. So I am ready for the Super Bowl haha
Speaking of the Super Bowl, I may post on Friday or Saturday links to super bowl foods. You are most welcome to share your foods in comments.
Do you have a super bowl party? My husband does Not watch any sports at all especially with the past political nonsense that occurred, so it's just me and the tv but I may just make pizzas that day, maybe chocolate popcorn not sure yet.
I have been saving up the mandarin orange peels to make ink-inspired by Elizabeth's last T post. I should have enough soon. Hoping to get a pretty yellow.
Happy T and new week-from the Lake
Kathy, very good pictures. The one at dawn is beautiful, it looks like a painting.ReplyDelete

Hi Kathy, so nice to see your moon and sunrise pics, always my faves. Glad you got that book you wanted for a good price, well done! Enjoy your cocoa, happy T Day, ValerieReplyDelete
Ours too especially here at the lake-so awesome to view. I am so happy to finally get this book Happy T hugsDelete
It looks like a beautiful book Kathy. We wanted the Bills to get a chance at the Super Bowl-especially since it was my husband's late sister's fav team. Maybe next year! Hope your team wins! The photos of your sky over the lake are so beautiful.ReplyDelete
The Bills are really good-they will get there one of these days for sure. I am hoping KC wins too this is a very equal two teams that will be playing-should be excitingDelete
Beautiful moon photos! I have watched a few Superbowl commercials on youtube.ReplyDelete
some years you can find a video with all of the super bowl commercialsDelete
Beautiful full moon! And the sunrise is amazing.ReplyDelete
thank you the sunrises here are amazing for sureDelete
Amazing photos! Beautiful sunrise as always.ReplyDelete
thank you-we have been having some beautiful sunrises this winterDelete
Very beautiful sunrise photos. You have well captured those. And I like the full moon photos as well. Watching the sky is one of my hobbies too and I never get bored.ReplyDelete
Happy T Day!
Thank you so much-us too We look forward to the early sunrises every morning-always different Happy TDelete
No superbowl parties here and no blankets. But we will be watching.ReplyDelete
It finally warmed up and I got to snowshoe today.
awesome-so glad it warmed up so you could get out and enjoy with your snowshoesDelete
You got some great moon shots Kathy. We had a bit of "haze" so our moon was fuzzy. Your sunrise photos are amazing. That must be beautiful to wake up to. You must be excited about the superbowl. We won't do anything except watch it. My husband loves football, so I see a lot of it, especially in the winter when we're inside more. I hope you have a wonderful T day and week ahead too Kathy. hugs-ErikaReplyDelete
Yes we look forward to the early sunrises every morning-always different and special and then I put out seed for the birds and we enjoy watching them.Delete
Nice that your husband likes to watch sports too. Happy T
Your sunrise pictures may be your best yet! Wow! Gorgeous moon too. I hope the 4th McIntyre book is as good as the previous ones.I am looking forward to hearing what you think. I will think of you wrapped in your new blanket this Sunday during the game. Hilltop PostReplyDelete
Good morning, the sunrises are really amazing to view and look forward to each early morning. at the woods house we never saw them do to all the trees. The moon was really awesome too,. I just finished a series I was reading so will start on the wolf book this week this one is all about the femalesDelete
this new blanket is so warm and cozy
Beautiful photos. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
thank you for visitingDelete
Beautiful moon, but ack, the cold, I´m done with that!ReplyDelete
Oh, the sunrise looks like a promise of warmth... And your lake, so peaceful.
Yes, sometimes the wait is worth it - hope the book is as great as you expected!
I found a funny book in the street yesterday (see next T-Day, if you like).
Very cool blanket. Oh can´t you have the Super Bowl at night, please? Then I could watch at daytime ;-)
Yes, yes, yes, please link!
So sad I am too dumb/don´t have the equipment to simply record the Super Bowl.
Reckon also they will skip braodcasting the ads!
Sad your Hubby skips this!
To ink! I will probably just eat them - if I find good ones (here it´s difficult! Also avocados etc...)
Happy T-Day to you (and the Lake, of course!) hugs
responded back by emailDelete
This is the first week our daytime temps have been above freezing. It has been SO cold here, too.ReplyDelete
Your moon shots are phenomenal. I love how you framed the moon between the branches. Truly lovely.
Your new book sounds wonderful, but that would still have been more than I could have spent on a book. I can only imagine what it sold for at retail! I hope you enjoy it. It sounds like something I'm sure you will enjoy.
Your hot chocolate looks really good. Right now, I am drinking luke warm coffee, so I would gladly join you with your drink of choice this week. Thanks for sharing your amazing moon shots, your sunrise beauties, your new book, and your hot chocolate with us for T this almost Tuesday.
BTW, can you guess who I will be cheering for at the Superbowl? The color red might give you an idea! I can't decide if I want to have a Superbowl party this year or not. It's a lot of work, the food I have to buy or make costs a fortune, and I end up cleaning all the mess on my own afterward.
yes I didn't want to spend this much on the book, I usually spend less than 5.00 on books, but this author's books have gotten quite a following now so this one was quite expensive. I think the seller read this book and then sold it on ebay.Delete
That would be fun to have a super bowl party, we don't know any one here to invite. I would suggest to have everyone bring something to share than it would be less work and expense for you-The clean up, surprised you wouldn't get help with that. hugs from the lake
You get good sky photos! I don't have a favorite team, but I'm willing to cheer on other people's teams :)ReplyDelete
Happy T Tuesday
Thank you the moon was really spectacular this month and the sunrises are always a surprise-love thatDelete
Hi Kathy, great moon photos. That moon has been shining in our bathroom window every night. I should have opened the window and snapped a photo, it was so bright, at first I thought I'd left a light on in there! Amazon delivers every day here too, right up till about 10pm sometimes. I keep thinking about all that cardboard... Happy T Day! Elle/EOTC xxReplyDelete
This month's full moon was really bright and beautiful. I have never had an amazon delivery on sunday before-was a surprise she said this was a trial to see how it goes here. I always have allot of cardboard to recycle as I do allot of online shopping-just easier and cheaper since we live so rural hereDelete
I caught the 'snow moon' while it was still low in the sky last night so it was so BIG and beautiful! with a lovely yellow/orangey cast to it.. What great pictures of the moon and sunrise Kathy... I loved the 'smoke' on the water when i lived by the lake.. We love hot chocolate with marshmallow whip at least once or twice over the Winter.. Go Chiefs!!!! I worry a little because of Mahomes' ankle and they've lost some of their fire power to injuries.. and the Eagles seem to be a formidable team this year.. But know that i'am Chiefs all the way!! lol Happy T day! Hugs! debReplyDelete
The moon was really huge and bright this month. Never thought of using marshmallow cream-cool idea!! The chiefs had allot of injuries at that title game but they got the job done. I am hoping with 2 weeks off Mahomes ankle will me much better. This should be a close game down to the very end-those are always so exciting to watch and nerve racking too hugsDelete
Great moon photos and spectacular sunrises. We were surprised once to get an Amazon delivery on a Sunday. Nothing special for Super Bowl since New England isn't in it this year. Himself will watch, but we don't do any special food. Pizza sounds perfect. Happy T DayReplyDelete
I have never been to a super bowl party, Hubs doesn't watch sports, so I think homemade pizzas will be perfect for us on sunday Happy TDelete
The sunsets are gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Loving the idea of the orange peels for ink. Looking forward to seeing your results.
Have you ever bought books off of Thriftbooks? They have great prices and excellent customer service. If I ever get a book that is not in the condition advertised, they replace it free of charge and tell me to donate the book. Not everything is a great price but I find most things are.
By the way, I bought one of those glass pens today. You were right. I added it to my cart but the discount didn't apply until right before purchase. I can't wait to try it out. Thanks for all the info on them.
Happy Tea day,
Hi Kate, yes I have been on thrift books and I think I did buy a couple books off there. Usually I find allot of really good prices for books on ebay and they are mostly free shipping there but not always.I looked everywhere online for this book. most were priced around 25.00 plus shipping on up allot running around $35.00 this being his 4th book I think the author has allot of readers nowDelete
I am so glad you got the pen! Yes right at check out they put the coupon in I hope you love it-I really enjoy writing with these glass pens and this brand has that fine tip.
I am anxious to make the mandarin peel ink soon in another day or two I should have enough.
Nice blanket. They have win vibes. Being an east coast person, I feel conflicted. So staying with Eagles.
thank you it is very warm and cozy-I think this will be an exciting close gameDelete
What beautiful sunrise photos! Stunning sky! And great full-moon shots too. I didn't get any as the moon rises on the other side of my house and I would have to go outside and climb a steep slope/hill and at night I can't be bothered to do that to be honest.ReplyDelete
How wonderful that you were able to get that book! I hope it meets your expectations.
Superbowl is baseball, right? I don't think we get that here. I wouldn't know as I still don't get tv programs (other than Netflix). Even then I don't think in Spain they care for basebaall (only basketball apparently). But Enjoy!
Happy belated T-Day,
that would be a huge hassel for sure-it was like that at the woods house-could not see anything indoors but if I went outdoors had to be careful not to fall or bumb into something hahaDelete
the super bowls is a football game-and the winner is the champ for that year. I think the super bowl is broadcast around the world
Glad you were able to purchase your book. The hot chocolate looks delicious. What gorgeous photos of the moon and the sunrise. It is hard to believe it was that cold this past weekend. Her is right. HugsReplyDelete
Hi Debbie, I know it was sooo cold here too-raining hard here right now-hugsDelete
That sounds cold Kathy! I love the moon photos, but not quite as much as the sunrise ones. Glad you found the book you wanted, settling down to read with a hot chocolate sounds like a very good idea. I hope your team wins! Stay warm! Belated Happy T Day, ChrisxReplyDelete
Hi Chris, thank you so much!!Delete
