Hints of Color Added.

These delightful desert plants get overlooked in all of the winter's browns, but these dried blooms, seen in a North side field get a pop of color from our photo editing software.

Interesting Angles

An uncommon view of the amphitheater at Mineral Palace Park creates interesting lines and curves.

Our Lucky Day

Meet Lucky. She is available for adoption at the PAWS shelter off Pueblo Blvd and 11th. We recently had the opportunity to walk this sweet pup who is waiting for a good home. We swear, it will be love at first site.

Come Out, Come Out, Wherever You are...

Seems like we haven't seen the full sun in quite a few days- but we'll settle for this cheery one painted outside the State Fair Grounds, off Prairie Ave.

Winter's Cover

It's interesting to see all the shapes the snow makes as it falls into place. Do your patio chairs make their own snow sculpture? Do your ordinary sheds look like cute chateaus?

Happy Weekend

An abandoned garden marker adds color to the cloudy days.

Warm Your Soul

 Homemade Cinnamon Rolls, made with love, keep freezing temps at bay.

When we are concocting recipes here in the studio, we rarely create an exact recipe, but rather GUIDELINES, and then we just sort of wing it. Usually it results in a great success. To make ours, we mixed about 1 C. milk, 1 t. yeast and 1/2 c. melted butter. Then we added 2 pinches of salt, 1/2 palm-ful of sugar and 2 3/4  - 3 C. flour. When it formed a a nice ball in our  mixer, we let it rise for about 30 min. Then we rolled it out into about a 10 x 16 rectangle, brushed it with some melted butter, sprinkled it with as much sugar and cinnamon as we thought looked good, rolled it up, sealed the seam, sliced it to rounds, brushed on more melted butter and baked them in a 350 degree oven for about 28 min. Can we say butter any more to make you understand how good these are?

The icing was just a mix of about 2 T.  softened butter and about 4 T. softened cream cheese, mixed using a fork, with a splash of vanilla, and as much powdered sugar as we thought looked right- at least 1/2 c. Whisked until smooth and spread on the warm rolls. Sublime on a cold morning with our fake fire roaring on the ipad!

Blaiser Spots a 3 ft. Icicle

And how could he not, while doing some outside chores? Humongous icicles tend to be show stoppers around here. We even refrained from breaking it off to use as a pretend sword, so we can watch to see if it get's bigger.

Under 3 Bucks!

Loaf N Jug at Ivywood and Pueblo Blvd.
Gas prices have been fluctuating high to less high all month, but we hadn't seen it this low in
quite some time. And no line! So of course we filled up and got a bit frosty in the process.

Mother Nature's Masterpiece

Haven't taken a frozen trek around Lake Pueblo yet? Bundle up! You're are missing the beauty!
I know for a fact that this won't be the last time we use that title for a post. Sometimes a photo is so beautiful, I don't know what to say about it, except that I am in continual awe of mother nature, and so appreciative of the beautiful state we live in. Yes, these frozen whites,  icy blues and sun kissed browns are winter in Pueblo.
