Christmas Wishes

Since this might be my last post for the year, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have gifted me with your likes, your comments, and your friendship. Even though I may never have the opportunity to meet with you in person, you have touched my heart and become a part of my life. I never thought I would see the day that I would have friends all around this big beautiful world. I pray wholeheartedly that each and every one of you will enjoy a blessed holiday season.  I hope to “see” you all next year! I wish you all a very Merry Christmas (for those who celebrate) and a Happy New Year!

Oh, The Weather Outside is Frightful…

I just love this big old pine tree next to the driveway — oh, wait, what driveway??

Another side view of no driveway.  See that snow blob on the left? That’s some sort of evergreen tree that usually stands about 12-14 feet high. Today it’s hung over with the weight of the world. You can see the small picture below taken almost two years ago. Not to worry, though, hubby went out and knocked the snow off and it’s beginning to straighten up again.

When I was taking the picture of this tree in the back (I call it a snowball tree), one of the birds must have landed on one of the branches because all of a sudden there was an “avalanche” of snow!

We’re keeping these little guys fed as best we can.

Well, this isn’t exactly how I had planned on spending the weekend! We can’t get out and no one can get in.  Even the post office and deliveries wouldn’t come up the driveway. Of course, it makes it harder when you can’t even tell there is a driveway under there somewhere. Hopefully, most of this will be gone by Monday!  Here’s another great reason why food and water storage are so important!

 

 

 

Pick a Word in December

Paula at Lost in Translation hosts a Thursday’s Special challenge. She gives us five words to choose from which are:  Sagacious, non-human, portrayal, remains, and stellar.

This sagacious fellow is my older brother holding his most recent great-granddaughter. (Photo not taken by me.)

These are four of the seven non-humans residing with us!

This is a portrayal of a rooster!

The following is a showing of some of the remains of fall. I probably should have picked up that blue leaf because I have no idea what made it blue.

And last but not least, a stellar “selfie” just prior to the stellar total eclipse which just happened to end up being eclipsed by a major cloud cover!
