It was the day after another major snowstorm with more on the way. But on Friday, this Sandwich Generation granny nanny and her senior mom were in seventh heaven because THE SUN WAS OUT. The temps didn't go above 16 but that didn't stop us!


The streets were fairly clear but getting there was the tough part for my senior mom - To the rescue - the Sandwich Generation Granny Nanny who is also caring for the elderly parents - ta da


We bundled up, mushed our way through the snow to the cleared off street, and took a bracing walk around the block. I even managed to snap some lovely shots with my easy to use digital camera (good thing it IS so easy to use as wearing gloves does make it all a bit trickier).


This Sandwich Generation granny nanny is so glad to see those blue skies in the midst of winter snow storms


We checked the mail – don't you love the color of red against the black and white!


Christmas may be over for the Sandwich Generation but the white snow just keeps coming - love the red against the black and white - cheers my granny nanny heart


We walked safely around the block on the street (thank you again to our wonderful city workers who keep our streets clear!) And we thoroughly enjoyed this lonely little red fire hydrant all alone and partially buried – isn't it cute like that – and don't you love that bright red against the white!


My senior mom and I had a good time laughing at this cute RED fire hydrant - gardening in the snow perhaps



My senior mom was so thrilled to get out of the house. She enjoyed the walk thoroughly and we had fun discussing our spring boomer and senior gardening plans. Right now, she's just enjoying reading her seed catalogs from Burpee icon and Burgess Seed & Plant Company and feeding the handful of Kentucky birds that come to visit. And we both enjoyed the lovely trees and bushes we spied on our walk. Look at the blue shadows in this photo –


My aging parents and I love the the color of the tree shadows in this photo I took with my easy to use digital camera


For more fun photos along with great and mostly easy to use tips, although there are some advanced tips as well for all you experts :), to help us all get great shots of everything from senior gardening projects to adorable activities for grandparents and grandchildren with that digital camera we love, be sure to visit Sweet Shot Tuesday.
