CHRISTMAS EVE – cannot believe that I woke up to snow, just like at Thanksgiving! But … today also power outage till 4 pm (a driver ran into a power pole and 5000 people were without electricity!). But this week 3 neighbors came by to bring cookies and chocolate, so I’m good:):) Anyone who thinks living in the country is boring, stay with me for a week – it will change your mind!

THE GOOD: To See the sky gives me a feeling of space and freedom. Nature is so inspiring! Like a blank canvas – you may add clouds or a sunset, a storm, or a rainbow – somehow it always looks superb.
If you squint, you’ll see the pole on the right side of the fence. Keep going left, and you’ll see the other poles and wire. Sorry, couldn’t get closer!
THE RANDOM: We Had been to Old Town San Diego so many times, but coming out of the coffee and tea shop
never noticed these flowers hanging like this in a tree!
Below, this was hanging in our tree!

For Warm Heart: One of the few memories I have from early childhood in Asia, was sitting by the open window in the dark (it was hot), eating my evening meal, close to the Christmas tree. No lights, because outside riots were going on, because of clashes between Islamists and Christians ( history repeating itself), so it was safer to eat in the dark. When I saw the collection of these Christmas decorations in the store of the Huntington Library (Pasadena, CA), they warmed my heart. I knew I had to get them, because they just looked like the ones my mom had brought with us to Holland.
THE FUN: looking for a door that with my musings today
Tuesday Texture, Water World, Good Fences, and Weekend Reflection
The Balboa Park Lion fountain in San Diego
The five years before 2014 it was fun to see how many Christmas or Xmas decorations I could “pack” in one room:)
Wherever you live, you make it work! That’s more satisfying than moping around for the December celebrations!
AND NOW WE ONLY CAN WAIT
