Days like this

A great horned owl is demanding answers outside my window and the stars lean close enough to touch; everything says dark December, but my heart. There the sun is warm and the skies are blue. There might even be happy swallows chattering somewhere off in the distance.

;-)

Was your weekend anywhere near as nice as mine?

No, my weekend wasn't that nice . . . your beautiful sky was lovely. We had cold, rainy weather. Love that photo!

Mary said...

Not as nice as yours, Laura :o)

We are feeling very wet, dark, and dreary. Thank goodness for Christmas lights.

My weekend was lovely and calm--hubby had been away 5 days for out of town meeting. He came home Sat. eve, we went out to dinner, then I came home & promptly fell asleep. I hadn't realized I had been tense--caring for house + 3 pets on my own, but I must have been.
A good week ahead too.

Yes, it was a good weekend. We had misty rain all day long. I'll put up with some gray days to get some rain. Started a new book, "The Other" by David Guterson. I think it will be a good one.

After two weeks of seeing no sun at all, Saturday seemed like a jewel to me!

What would you tell the owl if it could understand you? The stars do seem more vivid on winter nights where I live.-

*whispering weakly...*
Weekend? Did we just have a weekend?

MevetS said...

No. Not at all.

My weekend started with water running over my toes. In my kitchen, while I was washing my breakfast dishes Saturday morning. Uh oh.

The pipe under the sink had rusted out. Not a good thing. There was a small pond in the cabinets.

No ducks though. :-(

Liza: This was a pic from the summer... tho it was a pretty day yesterday.

Mary: Right... the magic of twinkle lights!

;-)

KGMom: I'm convinced that one of the greatest joys in life is sleeping in on the weekends! Glad your hubby is home.

NCMountainWoman: Hm. Did he write "Snow Falling on Cedars"?

(Nothing better than a new book and a weekend to read it.)

Carolyn: Hi! It is very dark now, isn't it? I think the sunrises and sunsets of winter make up for it, almost.

Delia: Thanks! It was almost 65 degrees here today!

Larry: Yep... I think it's that the view to the horizon isn't bothered by leaf-covered trees and there seems to be less haze now, too.

Susan: Yeah.. you missed it.

:-(

Steve: lol! So you spent Sat. at Home Depot, huh?

Might've been worse, though.
