December Days

Most of the trees
are bare now,
and the leaves have fallen
to the ground.
This mourning dove
landed on my
front lawn and stayed
for awhile;
didn't fly away quickly like
they normally do.
This wall in old town
caught my eye.
The town Christmas tree
The store windows
are all decked out for
I saw this sunrise very early
one cold December
It rained like cats and dogs
on Sunday. 
Our power even went out.
My candle looks cool
with all the
lights turned off.
Nel's dog getting in the
Christmas spirit.
I'll be showing some
of the festive décor around
my house soon.

Sheri, I loved the big tree in town. Don't you think the ground covered in colorful leaves is a picture painted for us by God? Speaking of which...that sunrise..I loved it. So golden yellow. Wonder what good old Abe would think of himself....rocking sunglasses. LOL Glad you are all into the spirit of this holiday season. Blessings to all, love you girl, Susie

Sheri, your town is looking lovely all dressed for Christmas! Our trees are basically bare now as well. I'm happy that you received rain as I think you are in need of moisture. Merry Christmas to you and your family! ♥

I will take a bite of that cookie ;-)

I admire a person who can take only one bite out of a pretty cookie.
A lovely post, Sheri.

So many beautiful photos. The beginning of the post reminded of my favorite song "California Dreaming".The window display is elegant and I love the blue in the mix. Rain photos from inside are awesome artistic views. Can't wait for the holiday home tour.

Dear Sheri,
I have missed so much... My computer was giving me trouble, all fixed now. Trying my best to get into the Christmas spirit..
I love that dove that landed in your yard.. So very beautiful.
And that TREE. You know what I thought when I first glanced at it? How in the world did anyone, even with a ladder, get up there to decorate it...
Your sunrise is breathtaking. We had a little rain, but for the most part it has been very cold in the evenings... Low has been 24 degrees!
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful photos...
blessings dear friend

What a lovely selection of photo's you share here, and what a lovely blue your sky is! We have had grey, drab days here - so it was a delight to see your blue sky.

All the best Jan

Patricia said...

Beautiful and unusual pictures, Sheri. I can see the cold weather closing in on your area, and how nice to see your Town Christmas Tree. Very cute snowman cookie - somebody can't wait til Christmas! xx

I love the way your gorgeous dog is all dressed up, and I live the light from the candle holder in the dark. It's definitely Winter now, cold nights, dark mornings :( Have a wonderful Christmas xxx

Haddock said...

Just love those leaves on the ground. So colourful.

Linda @ Life and Linda said...

Winter days and nights can be still be beautiful with the leaves piled up, and the chill in the air. I think seeing the leaves scattered around is lovely. I do appreciate a beautiful sunset and sunrise. The town Christmas tree is so pretty and festive. At least with the power off, we can admire the beautiful candlelight. Merry Christmas Sheri. xo
