Day One Hundred Twenty-Eight

Copyright 2010.  My Christmas Tree :O)

*There's magic in the air this evening,
magic in the air.
The world is at her best you know,
when people love and care.

The promise of excitement
is one the night will keep,
after all there's only
one more sleep 'til Christmas.*

Day One Hundred Twenty-Six

This is not a black and white picture... but this is exactly what it looks like outside.
It's been like living in a black and white world for the past week.

Day One Hundred Twenty-Five

*Whose woods these are I think I know,
his house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here,
to watch his woods fill up with snow.


The woods are lovely, dark and deep
but I have promises to keep;
and miles to go before I sleep...
And miles to go before I sleep.*

Day One Hundred Twenty-Three

Copyright 2010.  First snow in Kentucky.  Strange for this time of the year!
All Rights Reserved.

*No matter how old you are, it's hard not to get excited when snow starts to fall.  Because, so long as it keeps coming, no one can make you go anywhere or do anything.  All life's rules are suspended.  The best thing about snow, other than snowballs, is that it has an equalizing effect.  Snow can take any object or situation and make it pretty just the same.  Couldn't care less what's underneath.  It's not just that snow makes the world pretty... snow gives us all a second chance.  Snow cleanses, hiding the sins of all with no prejudices, favor or blame.  Everything gets to be pure again... if only for a little while.  Which might be all you need.*
