Show & Tell: Better off red

The kids were both in school but Roger and I had Veteran’s Day off. So we had a date in our city.

After lunch (which included acai sangria), we strolled over three of Denver’s bridges toward downtown. On the way, we found this:

Photo by Jeffrey Beall (his is better than mine).

National Velvet is by artist John McEnroe (not the tennis player, I presume). The sculpture was dedicated a year ago today.

Denver does like its primary colors, doesn’t it?

I have sudden urge to prepare kidney beans for dinner.

See what my classmates are showing and telling over at Mel’s Show & Tell.

Perfect Moment Monday: Everybody’s gone surfing

Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between.

Once a week we engage in mindfulness about something that is right with our world. Everyone is welcome to join. Details on how to participate are at the bottom of this post, complete with bloggy bling.

Please visit the links of the participants at the bottom.
Here’s a perfect moment from my week. I hope you’ll share yours, too.

Watching my daughter surf the snow, from our dining room window (hence, the haze). Notice her bare foot. It was in the 70s this day, just after the Halloween blizzard .
Gotta love Colorado.

And I do.
To participate in Perfect Moment Monday:

  1. Between Sunday night and Tuesday night, write up your own Perfect Moment in a blog post, on Twitter, on Facebook, or simply leave a comment below.

Due to Mother Nature’s recent cold flash, I am subjecting you to another slide show, so soon after the last.

(By the way, Manly Man is not Roger. He’s a guy we saw at the sledding hill. As far as I could tell, he was not high.)

Also, for those of you who were worried, I GOT MORE WINE!

We had a BLAST, and I laughed my abs off. Snow days CAN be fun when you’re all grown up.

Show & Tell: Red Deux

I’m not a big fan of Fall. I love warm weather, long days, summer clothes.

But. I like Fall colors.

Today it’s all white (like you wouldn’t believe!), but this past weekend, as I walked through my yard and took photos, I noticed the reds.

If you like these, you might want to see last year‘s.
