Thin Ice

Today was bright, sunny, n chilly, n I slept thru most of it. Having less sleep n money recently is really wearing me down. I got up n out in the last hour of daylight for errands.
.
First, I checked the B-cove for signs of ice. The tide left a thin sheet like glass high n dry ontop of the marsh grass until the water returns.
.
I wanted a pic of some of the ducks n geese sitting on the B-cove's ice, but they took off the moment they saw me coming down the path toward the water. Birds tend not to come out well on my cam, anyways. The ice hasn't built up much this week, or it'd be white out there.

.
Air pressure was put in a low tire at the gas station, then a short trip to the market for supplies was accomplished. Finally, I tracked down the state tax forms at the library, open until 8 pm today, where I haven't been in awhile. I want to spend more time there this year.

My next priority reading will be tax instructions tho. Nevermind a stack of books at home still unread, mostly non-fiction. Next week my Days Off are changed to cover a co-workers vaca, so I'll have to work six days in a row without any break for rest, pics, n errands.
.
I won't be blogging as much in the next few weeks, involuntarily. There's simply too much to do in too little time. February is a short month, n my funds need a boost.
Photo by SnaggleTooth Feb 2010My 'Puter needs more hard-drive space ASAP, n Windows updates won't even fit for security. Nothing can be done about it until the bux, n time. I'll get around to read as I can, but less often (Not every day :( ). Several upcoming needs will require missed days of sleep I also can't afford.
.
Now Day Off time is over, n I'm off skating thru February on thin ice...
I'm waiting for the icebergs to build....

I love the patterns that the marsh grass makes under ice. And I'm glad you got to get out and enjoy some rays and some beautiful vistas since you have such a hectic period right now, Snaggle.

That first one is so pretty, such delicate ice.

And the last one so nice too, with the sun doing that shining thing it does.

Snag, could you delete all pix you don't think you want to keep? I've been doing that lately and freeing up a lot of space on my hard drive, as all those pix add up.

xo

Talon, I can hear the grass crying "Let me out! This is heavy!" I'm amazed I even got out early enough, how tired I've been. Thanks for your support- I have to make the most of the few free minutes I have.

Lynn, thankyou. That's the B-cove for the first 3, n the pier at the other side of the village in the last pic. This place is nearly an island.

JanF, Glad you like the pics picks. Thanks for your suggestion. All my pics n documents tho, are already on another drive. I've had to dump applications to free up windows space. The drive is too small for windows updates- I need a new one.

BB, Thanks for the tip-off!

Nice pics.

Can understand about the lack of time.

Do what you can with us and we'll be more than satisfied.

We'll be here when have more time.

Because even a little bit of you goes a long way.

JanF, yep! Always getting old, out-dated, n never roomy enough!
