LIVING THE GOOD LIFE...

On this day after Thanksgiving, when everyone else seems to be out seeking Black Friday bargains, Bob and I are sitting beside our woodburning stove, dipping homemade brownies into hot Irish chocolate... with a few big snowflakes floating lazily down outside our windows...
And we say---(so shoot us, snow-haters!)---this is putting us into the Christmas mood; and that mood NEVER sends us out into the bah-humbug world of Black Friday shoppers.
We're not missing a thing that matters to us. Bargains or not, we have the best of it right here.
R.A.T. (Rose About Town) and her Bob live the good life together.

MOON OVER OUR VALLEY...

A beautiful star-littered sky over our dark country night. A crescent moon, bright as can be, with a star like a diamond above it. Cloudless skies, brisk air. If I felt better, I'd walk out into this night. I miss my canine walking buddy.

Rose About Town. Minus her dog.

MORNING SUN ON TREE TRUNKS FROM A NORTH WINDOW OF OUR BEDROOM

Some people complain when the leaves are gone from the trees; I am not one of those people.
I like the way the sunlight plays along the bark of the trees...
I like that I can see a larger world without the leaves to screen it from me...
I like that I can see the creek soak up the moonlight, sunlight, blue sky, bright sunsets...
I like that I can see into the woods...
