STARK BEAUTY

IMG_4121

Considering how we got slammed early on with snow, it all ended before Thanksgiving, and this is all that’s left. For now. I hope this finds you basking in the glow of the season. I’ve been glowing under a blankie and on the couch with a respiratory flu. One way to put on the brakes, but I don’t recommend it, LOL! I am on the mend, but truly grateful I had decorated inside and out before I was waylaid. Simple blessings. Signed up for a fun watercolor class with a local artist. Yippee! Will tell you all about it in a separate post very soon. Stay warm, cozy and healthy my friends.

ALL IS CALM…

All is bright

P1000677Saturday evening was the tree lighting in town. This was year 99, WOW! Hundreds of people showed up to sing carols and countdown from 10 to 1, then a switch was flipped and the tree lit up, along with all the Main Street twinkle lights and store fronts. Magical. All we had to do was walk one block to get there, and once we were sufficiently filled with the glow of holiday cheer, walked around the corner to our favorite restaurant for dinner. Not sure it can get better than this. Let the holidays begin my friends, keeping in mind what they truly mean to you. CHEERS!

GLORIOUS GRAY DAYS

The clouds kept the sun at bay
Playing peek-a-boo!

This view grabbed me by the arm and dragged me toward it while I was out with Quincy for our walk. It was tucked in at the end of a lane. I could hear the waves crashing on the shore. So blessed to be near such beauty. And me without my Lumix! It’s okay, the phone was better than nothing. Heaven forbid I wouldn’t have been able to share these views with you.
