WordFul Wednesday...


From this....Bright blue, 65 degrees, panoramic views, red rock, natures stairs to the top, calm breeze, and a vast playing field!
To this...a vast vortex of brown, gray, stifling, suffocating, nothing muck!!
Our children had a 4 day weekend (didn't they just have a holiday break, anyhow I digress). So, we decided to head south to St. George. It was truly beautiful. Getting out of the ever so pleasant inversion was not missed. Breathing fresh air for several days...simply cleansing!!

oh lucky you - my kids were off for 3 days - making a 5 days long weekend - but we were stuck indoors b/c of the vicious cold weather!

Thank goodness I live on the shore...where there is a sea breeze blowing that nasty brown cloud away from us all the time.

Oh!! Good Dixie weather my wonderful home town. I love going home to visit and would live there if Karolynn was there. I am glad you had a good trip.

I am glad you were able to get out of the muck. You can never leave. Every time you leave, I need you! Thanks for the amazing dinner tonight! You are the best friend I have ever had! Love you!

So it's not just me? The kids in Utah are ALWAYS out of school!

Congratulations on getting down where the air is breathable for a while.

Great pictures! The first one is beautiful and the second reminds me how depressing the January inversions were. Glad you got to get away for a few days.
