Let It Snow

Hubby went downtown the day after Christmas and bought this really cool decoration that I put on the fireplace mantle …

12.28.14.SnowfallOops! Where were you, snow, when we were wishing for a white Christmas?

A couple of years ago I did the 365 project where I posted a photo a day on this blog.  Well … for 2015 I’ve decided to take on the 52-week challenge, so it looks like I’ll be posting a new photo once a week with my (sometimes crazy) narrative in accompaniment.  Stay tuned and thanks for following my blog.  I always look forward to your likes and comments.  Namaste’

Blending In

For years I’ve been rather dismayed by the commercialism of the Christmas season.  I mean, the lights in the neighborhoods are beautiful, the choirs give me goose bumps (sometimes), and it’s pretty wonderful to be with family and friends.

But the whole gift buying frenzy has gotten way out of hand in my opinion.  We are bombarded with non-stop ads for the latest, greatest electronic gadget, which many families will go into credit card debt to buy for someone on their gift list.  That’s crazy!

How many teenagers will spend a lot of time on Christmas texting their friends instead of being “present” with their families? But I can’t just pick on teenagers.  Many adults are just as guilty.  So sad.

Sharing this photo with you gives me pleasure.  And it was a pleasure taking it because I got to be up close and personal with this buck and doe.  They were heading over to the neighbor’s back lot when I called to them and I was pleasantly surprised when they looked over to see where my voice was coming from.  The buck looks a little strange because as he looked over his shoulder, I snapped the image.  Looks like his head is sitting on his behind.  Ha!

Were they trying to blend in?  I hope so because there are predators, two-legged and four-legged that would like to do them harm.  Namaste’

Snow? Time to Go!

Today’s image is of our patio table, which now has another layer of snow.  It wasn’t bad enough that we had 2 1/2 feet of it a couple of weeks ago, but then this showed up yesterday.  Just when the accumulation had melted!  (Studded snow tires make all the difference, though). Oh, well, I keep telling myself that winter won’t last forever.

I thought the texture that the snow produced on the table was kind of cool.  See? … a silver lining in every cloud.  Namaste’

Snow Day Tomorrow?

It’s possible that we will have some of the white fluffy stuff here in Tucson tomorrow.  If we do, rest assured I’ll be out and about with my camera.  Even the weather forecast says so but if it shows 49 degrees, how can there be snow????  We’ll see … Namaste’
