Here is my December. I took pictures because I now own a smartphone and the world is pretty in the wintertime. It’s naked.
I thought this wreath was hung so nicely on the bare tree with just the perfect dusting of snow. Should be on a greeting card.
Sort of like a ladder, no?
It’s like van Gogh’s “Almond Blossoms” (my favorite one of his paintings) but with snow on a naked tree.
I just wish some deer would have walked into this shot. It was so pretty.
I took so many pictures in front of this house, I thought they would come out and ask what I was doing. But I love this roof. Baby blue.
I just thought this was cool.
Sorry, pumpkin; it’s winter.
The best part about this photo is the sun shining in the middle of the cul-de-sac and on the blobs of ice in the foreground.
We had a glass tree, briefly.
Our neighborhood does luminaries and it was my job to light the candles…unfortunately, one gust of wind later, there were some casualties.
handmade xmas cards are so much better.
spindle tree. Charlie Brown style.
Sources of glow.
missing a nest?
care for a roll?
the pears have rays.
I turnover myself every time the seasons change. I had to preen my feathers a little or this year would start with frustration.
new window fixings, new view.
my productive nook.
this is how I take notes. Whether or not it’s to the chagrin of my English teacher, they help me.
I love my tea. Especially when it’s a brilliant and warm orange like this particular brew.
Happy new year, happy winter, happy next semester, happy polar vortex. I will be writing more this year, I promise. I have a few tricks up my sleeve, and will probably be veering towards the fiction and short story/creative writing variety of posts rather than personal, but you know me – I can’t predict what I’ll write.
