The natural beauty of the water and mountains surrounding the Skamania Fair was awesome, even on an overcast day. These are some of the photos I captured while at the fair I wrote about in a previous post:
I LOVE MYSTERIES! But most of all I love mysteries with wonderful descriptions of snow in them. One such author that accomplishes this beautiful writing feature is Diana Mott Davidson and I look forward to her next mystery novel before it ever comes out. Since I was a very young child, I have enjoyed this genre.
Today, it is still my favorite. Now, I have found that I like the descriptions of snow that this author uses and I have written quotes from her books down to remind me.
When I locate my list of snow phrases, I will add them here so I have a permanant location to re-read them often. In the meantime, something kept me too busy from reading her latest novel called Dark Tort and I want to get that asap! All the books are about a caterer who has a son, is divorced and re-married to a cop AND she always solves a mystery connected to her catering and there is always snow in Denver. I wish I could write like her!
Found a few of them!
"Trees high and low were hung with glittering ribbons of snow."
"Sunbeams slanting through the pines and aspen branches winked off errant flakes."
"Out here in the boondocks, the snow is seductively pretty."
"Through the thickening swirl of snowflakes . . . "
"As if on cue, the snow began to flutter down again . . . "
There are more -- I just have to re-locate them. . . hmmmm. maybe a new re-read of each title would be in order!
My name is Paulie and I have several blogs. I started with "PostcardsfromPaulie" which is my main blog. I have gradually added others. "Turtle Place" is for a new project downtown that celebrates our heritage and one day will be a gathering place like it was many years ago.Vancouver's history. I intend to keep a photo graphic journal of a special house at From My View - the Kiggins House.
Living in Vancouver, WA, we have many historical homes and sites and our community is aware of the importance of our heritage. This home was built by the first Mayor of Vancouver and is on the National Historical Register. This year, it was moved from its original site and is being restored to be used as the personal home of the Bruce and Judy Woods family.
