Tulips in the snow.
Granddaughter Maura (just turned ten) texted me a night photo of a Christmas house. For the blog!
Last night, after Steve and I grabbed a bite, we drove through a neighborhood in search of a few more photos to add to Maura’s.
It’s dark so early now as we approach that shortest day of light.
Here’s the house in Columbus Ohio that Maura sent.
Thanks for the good idea, Maura. What a lot of colorful decorations!
Below are a few Pittsburgh houses, mostly taken from the car except for the snowy animals. I had to get out.
Pittsburgh Northside Rooftops on Friday Morning-
my six word Saturday.
The boys run the Airedales on the front yard at their other grandmother’s home. Hardy, Virginia. Chilly but beautiful outside.
The other morning at Bastone Auto. My car’s state inspection was due. I sat in a chair and waited for my ride. I asked where they’d gotten the umbrella stand. Found in someone’s trash!
I’ve never owned an umbrella stand. I rarely use an umbrella . But this one caught my eye.
You might remember the Bastone brothers from my People at Work Series.
It just takes some getting used to. The new season. It changed this morning. We like the changing seasons, right?
This chilly icy, now tonight, snowy weather.
So hard on the trees, though. The driving.
Getting cozy by adding covers, readying for hibernation, thinking about making pots of chili, soup. Boiling the kettle for tea. Oh yes, keep on knitting a wooly sweater.
Streets of Gold.
Golden Gingko leaves on the city streets.
