Here I am watching the light again. :) The other afternoon the sun was shining so beautifully and reflecting into the dining room window. I have a prism in the window and the light was refracting off of it across the wall.
On the other side of the room is the Christmas tree all lit. I'm enjoying the lights in the evenings and even on the grey dull days.
Friday afternoon there were 3 deer at the top of the hill. I cropped the photo to include the 2 closest together. They stood there looking around for a few minutes then....
....they laid down and had a rest and enjoyed the view for almost 2 hours! I think it was a doe and her twins. They then got up and disappeared over the hill.
This little guy comes around a lot to clean up on the seeds that spill. He shells a couple then takes off and buries them, runs back and shells more. Such a busy character.
Although Saturday is the Full Cold Moon, I'll admit I took this photo Friday night (through the window) because it was nice and clear out to view it. We had snow most of the day today followed by a cold rain so there is no visible moon this evening.
Here's a photo I took a week ago today. There was a chainsaw artist at the local shopping plaza and he was carving an angel.
Those are some of his other creations on the truck. He had one wing made and was working on the face. One slip of the saw and OOPS! Ruined. He was pretty good at it. It must take a lot of patience and skill.
I went shopping the past two days trying to get something done in the line of Christmas gifts. My heart just isn't in it much this year but I did find a few things. I still haven't started Christmas cards and it's getting too late to mail some to be delivered on time. I spent the afternoon baking cookies. Shortbread with pale pink frosting and Ginger sparkles. All in the freezer. :) But we did sample
some a few. Can you believe Christmas is less than 3 weeks away? Panic time. I'm not going to worry about it. I do this every year. I expect one day my tardiness will backfire on me but, I hope it's not this year. Are you panicking yet?
I hope you are having a good weekend. Are you entertaining or being entertained? Have you got your decorating and baking all done? It's such a busy time of the year isn't it?
Look what happened to Mr. Red. He looks like he's ready for Christmas.
