My December 2018 In Photos

I didn’t take as many photos in December, but the majority of the best ones I got were either of the sky and trees or of Jack.

The tree in the middle looks kind of knotty. I like the uniqueness of it. 😊

I love the color of the sky. I wanted to silhouette stuff against that sky.

I played with angles a bit too. 😀

I’ve heard about clouds having a silver lining… but not a gold lining.

December was a great month for sunrises and sunsets. 💜

Two planes in the same shot! 😮

Zoomed in on one plane and was surprised at how well it came out. 😁


These two are from my iPod. 😊 (Tomorrow at 11 CST, I have a  Caturday Saturday scheduled that are photos from December. These really fit with my December theme here, so this is just a taste. 🙂 )

My mom likes snowmen, and Jack seems to like them too…

I think he thinks he is one. 🤣

Welcome Spring!

It is week 63 of 100 Word Wednesday, and here is the photo prompt and my response. 🙂 If you want to join in the fun, just click the link! 😉

Flowers bulbs in a basket, for sale
Will be in bloom before you know
Yes, those flowers in the pail
Soon will give a spectacular floral show

“Welcome” is painted on the wooden sign,
Winter says its heartfelt goodbye as it goes
Welcome Springtime, welcome sunshine
As Winter takes with it the snows

Buy and bring them to their new place
Set the sign by the garden gate
Plant the bulbs along the fence with grace
And then comes the hard part – the wait

Soon the bulbs shoot up flowers
Greeting the warmth of the sun
And the April Showers
Waiting is over, the show has begun!

Marching In

I stare in wonder
As January melts away
The New year is no longer new
Where oh where did all that time go?

I gaze dumbfounded
As February sends greetings
Seems like January had just arrived

The winter snows give way to
Red hearts and love stories to warm the soul

And then February says goodbye, and the green clovers march in.


Hey everyone! I hope that you’ve had a great March so far! 😀

I’m going to be taking a short blogging break this weekend – so I’ll see y’all again on Monday! ❤ Have a great weekend!

Snow Cat!

Snow Cat!

As I mentioned in a previous post, Snow!, I have been patiently waiting for the snow to become workable instead of a pretty powder. It’s all melted now, but two days ago, it was the perfect – or should I say, PURRfect – consistency, so I went a little overboard and almost froze my fingers off making this. This is what happens when I have an hour of uninterrupted time and workable snow. I probably took too many photos of it, but I was so excited, haha. I built it on the hood on my mom’s car. 😂 The nose is a piece of leaf, the mouth is a piece of grass, and the eyes are sunflower see shells that I found under our birdfeeder. 🙂

 

Snow!

WE HAVE SNOW. Haha. We rarely get snow, so this is exciting for me. If only it will get warm enough to not be powder. I want to make a snowman! Or snow-something. I made a snow-chicken one year. I even made it a nest. So anything is possible… 😆

This is a collection of photos I took yesterday and early this morning.

This is the frost frozen on the window. It’s so pretty, haha.

Snow! And Jay wanting breakfast, haha. He was relentless. He wouldn’t let me take photos of the driveway yesterday until he had breakfast. XD

Pawprints.

Our driveway.

It’s easy to tell where all Jay has been. XD

Tire tracks.

Here is the temperature at 8:00 AM. Brrrrrrrr. **shivers** I’m not used to this! Cold yes, but not this cold. It rarely gets below 20. This is insane. I can’t stay outside more than five minutes without my fingers and toes going numb. **sigh** How am I supposed to play in the snow?! Patience. This is teaching me patience. 😂

Hope you all are having a beautiful day!💜

Frozen

This is week nine of 100 Word Wednesday, and here is the photo and my response. 🙂 If you’d like to participate, just click the link! 😉

It’s an unpleasantly frigid 10 degrees below zero.
Wandered the wood to make sense of her thoughts,
Totally lost and unsure which way to go,
She’s almost as frozen as her hardened heart.

Blood ran as cold as the melty snow making her feet wet,
She’d held onto hurt, promising reconciliation tomorrow.
Now it may be too late to forgive and forget,
As hypothermia begins to settle into her marrow.

She shivers uncontrollably on this stroll;
Peeks through the foliage to see lights in the distance.
She doesn’t want to die alone, but the cold takes its toll;
She shouts as the winter wonderland takes her consciousness…

And this was the 107 word mark! What a cliffhanger though. Does someone hear her cries and rescue her at the last possible moment, or does this story take a tragic turn? I guess you decide… 😉

The Word Of Our God Shall Stand Forever!

It’s 40 degrees where I am (and due to get colder and possibly get snow!), and I know that other places are even colder than that and are already getting snow, or have had more snow than they can stand. Winter is definitely in full swing.

And because of that, some people this time of year are experiencing S.A.D. (Seasonal Affective Disorder) and the winter blues, so here is a bit of encouragement that even though the flowers and grass may freeze, the word of our Lord will stand forever, no matter the temperature, weather or season. 🙂 I’m also linking to a post from Come In And Sit Down about how to beat those winter blues. Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ. (Galatians 1:3)
