God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

Another Wonderful Day!

It was foggy when I woke up this morning & -3 degrees.  I could barely see it, but as it got lighter, there it was.  Hoar frost.  So pretty, & it didn't deter the birds from coming for breakfast!
  Mr. Cardinal

How many Blue Jays do you see?

A cute little Junco   : )

A mystery bird!  I think it's a sparrow of some sort.

Several birds in one of the farm trees on our "back 40" (actually our "back 12 or so").  I used the zoom for this.  Can't tell if they're blackbirds or Mourning Doves.  

A closer look using the zoom-zoom   : )   I am thinking they are Mourning Doves.

Mr. Blue Jay finding seeds in one of John's footsteps.  I love how the birds jump into his footsteps & settle down for a meal   : )

Front of property.

A farm tree & a fence line.

It is going to be a bright & sunny day, 32 degrees. The temperatures will continue to climb until next week when we will be in the 60s again.  That will be a sad time, but on the other hand it means we will be closer to listing our house for sale!  As I said a few posts back, we have decided to leave this place.  We have no idea where we will go, but if you have any suggestions, do let me know   : )

Oh Shirlee, you should print that last photo and frame it! You really captured the frost on the tree and the light in the picture is wonderful!

Come on out to Phoenix, Shirlee! The weather is gorgeous, the people are friendly, the beach is 6 hours to the west and snow/ski slopes are 2 hours to the north!

Beautiful photography!!

I'd like to suggest Virginia for consideration. :-) It is a lovely place to live. We've got beaches to the east and mountains to the west and the people are friendly.

Such stunning photos Shirlee! I really love the first one. Never seen an actual Cardinal before. Hmmm, places to live. Well, I would suggest here but it's one of the most expensive places to live and we too are thinking of leaving. Anywhere your heart desires I suppose. Pray on it! Hugs!!

Wonderful photos, Shirlee. Good luck with the posting of the house for sale and may I suggest Melbourne (Australia not Florida) although we never get any snow! lol!
