Blue Monday: Blue Sky over Fort Washington

Blue Monday is hosted weekly by Smiling Sally.
To see more offerings, or to participate yourself, please head on over to her blog.

I've been sorting through the photos I've taken during the last few months, and found this one from back in October.

M and I had been to Mount Vernon for lunch (the restaurant there is one of my favorites in this area), and on the way home I snapped this shot of Fort Washington across the Potomac in Maryland. It was a little early for any autumn color in the trees, but the sky was a nice clear blue (except for that one tiny cloud right over the fort).

We've never visited Fort Washington, but it's open to the public, and it's supposed to be a great place for a picnic. So I'm putting a trip to the fort on my "One of these Days, Definitely" list.

Saturday Snapshot: Art Museum

One of my favorite ways to spend the day -- museum hopping in Washington DC. Actually, though, I love hanging out in museums just about anywhere.

National Gallery of Art, East Building exterior

And an interior view of the main lobby,
with the giant Alexander Calder mobile in the center.

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce of At Home With Books, and as she says: "To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don't post random photos that you find online."

Blue Monday: After-Christmas Blues

Blue Monday is hosted weekly by Smiling Sally.
To see more offerings, or to participate yourself, please head on over to her blog.


This weekend the hubby took down the Christmas lights from our balcony, and packed them away for another year. Always makes me feel a little blue -- not just the fact that the holiday season is now officially over (at our house, anyway), but now there's nothing out there to brighten up those long winter nights. (Darn those Condo Association rules!) Hope spring gets here really fast.

M tested all the lights before he put them away for next year (yes, he's very methodical about such things), and I caught this shot of him sitting with lights shining all around his feet. Not as clear as it could be (sorry) because I took it with my cell phone camera. Oh, and notice he's wearing a pair of his favorite bluejeans while he works.

Saturday Snapshot: Joy to the World

OK, the year is almost half a month old now, and I know everyone is sick to death of seeing Christmas photos. But I just had to put up one last one. This was a gift from my cousin MLB. Beautiful, isn't it? She does such gorgeous stitching. And it's very special because she made it herself and because it's my name!


And now she's got me thinking about doing some needlepoint again after many years. So maybe I'll pull out one of those unfinished projects for the new year. Although, when it comes to needlework, I really am much better at photographing it!
