I’ve been quite busy since arriving home from my six-week–4,200 mile–road trip through the Southern U.S. In addition to the normal duties one has when returning from a trip (i.e. unpacking, laundry, opening mail, paying bills, cleaning house, grocery shopping, etc.), with the holidays right around the corner, I decorated the house…
did some Christmas shopping, met a friend for happy hour, responded to party invitations, and took my doggie hiking at the nearby trails. A couple of days ago, I looked out in the front yard, saw the frosty grass and the shadows stretching across the yard and thought how pretty it looked…so I captured the moment…
Tomorrow evening my son and his girlfriend are coming over for an early Christmas celebration because he’ll be going to Dallas to visit his father over Christmas. I’m really looking forward to seeing him, since the last time I saw him was before I left for my trip. I’ll be cooking dinner and a delicious dessert!
In memory of the slain children, here is a photo I took a week ago in Florida of happy frolicking children by the sea at sunset…
May their families hearts not break from the sadness.
Wishing everyone a joyful weekend!
