Hello December!!!

On this cold December 1st..
simple and random thoughts..
while looking out my window as often I do..
towards Ernie's beautiful maple..
today, the  contrast is quite stark..
the limbs are dark..

and bare of all but a few remaining leaves..
the inquisitive squirrel has not popped by..

not even appeared to peer back at me!!
haven't seen the bobtailed one either..
the view is partially obscured..
no beautiful blue backdrop..

or even a cloud..
just a lighter shade of grayness..

and the already accumulated 3-4 inches..
of newly fallen snow on his roof..

falling, blowing almost sideways..
for most of the day..
.Blowing Snow
to be followed by frigid cold for the next week..
no reason for me to be out and about..
too much to be done indoors..
Icy Christmas Decorations
nice, toasty, warm..

smelling all Christmasy from candles..

and potpourrie..
hello December!

it's that most wonderful time of year!!!
..if only in my dreams!!!!!


  1. Oh your photos are beautiful. I'm in between...sorta grey and blah or sunny but no snow so not so pretty here. I would love the mountains or the beach right now! hugs, Linda

  2. Awesome fotos - Excuse me while I go put a sweater on....brrrr

  3. Gorgeous! Your photos make me feel the brisk winter chill here in my living room! ;o)

    I miss the snow... but I shouldn't complain, I love having the Mediterranean next door!

    Enjoy the season!

  4. Oh, brrrrrrrrrr...... I got cold just looking at all that snow. Stay in and stay warm!

  5. It's the perfect day to snuggle up on the sofa with a good book and a hot cup of cocoa. Enjoy the day!

  6. I'll be home for Christmas...if only in my dreams!! I love the Colorado mountains and miss them, but it's the snow I'd much rather live without. But oh the beauty. Your share of photos is just breathtaking. The one with the snow blowing across the And that squirrel?!! You couldn't have captured a better sight. That one is just too amazing for words.

    A link to my Friday post: Part 1 of our Road Trip

    Hope you have a lovely weekend.

  7. Beautiful photographs. Love the pictures of the snow and mountains in the background. Just stunning!!

  8. Wow! You guys got a lot of snow! I'm envious. Were you in the path of the wind storm yesterday? That was south of us. We got a little snow and no wind.

  9. Oh Loui, I have missed you so and now I go back and read you were here for TWO weeks. I'm finally coming up for air and feel I've missed so much, especially you.

    Did you get my Birthday song on voicemail when you got home?

    Hugs, hugs and warmth coming your way.



welcome to my world of salty sunkissed breezes..
where time is not measured..
linger leisurely..
sift sugary white sand between your toes..
Make and take those wonderful memories..
leaving behind..only your footprints...
