ABC Wednesday

W is for wool.



I am warm
wrapped in my woven wool blanket



on Winter Solstice

while outside watching the Wrens.


I thought of the Wrenboys of olden times.


and Wassail. W is for whistle.

When I add water I tweet a warble to the birds.


I whistle while I work.
W is for wood pile

and wall.


W is for Wooden shoes.


I have a collection.

W is for the wind, whispering in the Winter trees.
Wisps of clouds wash the skies.

A winter storm is coming in.


I shall walk once again in a Winter Wonderland.

W is for worm.
I am a book worm.

W is for watching and waiting.

W is for Wishes.


When I blow out the candles I make a wish.








Happy ABC Wednesday.
Wishing you and yours the Happiest of Holidays.

Great W's! I especially like the wooden shoes, but that might be a bit prejudiced...

Dear Sherry....Oh my, is that your wall?? Have I not told you just how much I love dry stone walls. Something I would love to have in my garden (it is not going to happen)

Your W post is the best yet. Such a wonderful collection that brought cheer to my heart.....

Have a wonderful Christmas and I do so hope that 2010 holds good health and happiness for your and yours......
