Cemetry Walk

We pulled our boots and caps on.
We went for a walk in the cemetery.

That was lots of fun!

Sunday Safari

 The blizzard began Christmas Eve evening.

The snow continued to fall on Christmas Day

and into Boxing Day.

The wind continued to blow.

We received about 7 inches of snow.

This morning the sun came out.

                                                     I walked about in the back yard.
                                                               There are large drifts.

The snow is still blowing.

The lavender in the bedroom is beginning to bloom.

I am drying the Christmas Roses.

The birds are flocking to the seed trays.

Happy Sunday Safari.
May you have a safe and prosperous New Year.

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.
