Sunday morning


IMG_0006-XLIt’s a lovely 14*F out there this morning with a nice atypical Minnesota February snow.  That converts to a pleasant -10*C if you’re curious and wanting to feel like you’re living a tad dangerous thru me. All I know is I’m gonna make a stew out of that rat if he sees his shadow tomorrow.  In all reality, we have another 60 days of this anyway so it’s really kind of an idle threat.

My girls made me a nice little sun catcher for my front window.  It adds a nice bit of colour on a grey and snowy Minnesota morning.  Maybe I can get their Momma to have them make me a couple more so I can add them as well.

I have to run to the market a bit later this morning so I think Ill be taking my camera with me.  The road a travel skirts the Minnesota countryside and it’s been a while since I’ve taken any pictures along that route.I’ll hafta be careful tho.  Minnesota Soccer Moms and Soccer Dads will be out and about in their Soccer vans and Soccer SUVs.  It’s best you observe them driving from a safe distance … like a mile away.

Art Sunday #11: El Greco – The Burial of the Count of Orgaz


El_Greco_-_The_Burial_of_the_Count_of_OrgazIt’s a beautiful work if you ever are in Toledo, Spain.  Find the cathedral and then look for the side chapel of the Virgin.  Pay the entrance fee and enjoy.  Forget the camera.  No photos allowed of the painting in the chapel.  The chapel is small and the crowds can be large, so you may need to ever so politely elbow your way thru.  Find the self portrait of El Greco in the crowd.
