Here you will always find the American flag

waving and the American eagle flying.

Hard to believe it's December 1st already! 

Another year has all but flown by…

Christmas is almost here!

The 12th month of the year is an outstanding one

December is the last month in the Gregorian calendar. Its name is based on

the Latin term for ten. In the Roman calendar, December was the tenth month

until the addition of January and February at the beginning of the year. In the

Northern Hemisphere December has the shortest daylight hours and marks the

beginning of winter. December provides the longest days in Southern

Hemisphere, as it is the beginning of summer. December is a month home to

many religious holidays.


Today, flowers of the season

Stained glass windows are still somewhat

intact. My, my, what a mess of God's house.

The rope and boards
The rope and boards I believe used to be

a ladder for fire escape possibly.

You would surely like to know what must be

going thru this little girl's mind seeing ALL

those books! The dog seems occupied by something

on the floor? Just look at her little hat, sweater

vest, cute leggings and those shoes! I do wonder

what she is holding in her hands?

These would not only be festive for most

anyone, but a cancer patient for sure

to tastefully brighten their holiday.

Too cute, and it would appear that he/she

is not minding this festive touch at all!

A beautiful closure to the season of Fall.

How clever is this?!

No question of the love pouring from this picture.

You took the time, thank you!

What a wonderful feeling

this can be!

You will be listening to mostly

Christmas music this month.

I might include a misc song

now and then.

I do hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving.

Mine was very busy all week long. So nice

to see and visit with our Florida family.

The house seems very quiet now.

I think I was full and or stuffed the

entire time. Lots of good food and

time with family. For that I am most

thankful and very grateful for life.

I hope you will enjoy all the Christmas

things I have found to share in the coming

weeks and that you will enjoy the

music that I have chosen. Thank you

everyone around you at all times. A

very good habit .... take care!
