Sun sets in the backyard, too

Wandering around the backyard after a workday I realize that the front of the house isn’t the only place I can spot an interesting winter sunset. I like the way it sits just over our neighbor’s house to the west. Happy January sunset this is.

That’s what cold looks like

All it took was a quick look out the back door to know that the work day’s worth of cold surely had made its mark on the whole darn backyard. Whatever had gathered on the pool cover, frozen. Snow fallen on the grass, frozen. My fingers on the screen of my iPhone 8, frozen. Finally…

Our cherished rescue mutt Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle seems to be as amazed as I am that we’ve been up for, oh, an hour, and the side alcove light is shining on her because the sun is only now just threatening to rise.

Hoping for a lighted walk next edition

I was not able to walk the path of Onondaga Lake Park’s road for Lights on the Lake while it was dark enough for the displays to truly shine out for my photos this season. It still looks pretty in the light, I think. However … Maybe come the 2022-23 edition I’ll get out there…

Happy holiday for Ava

Grand cat Ava particularly enjoyed this moving Christmas gift, terrific daughter Elisabeth had to share in her text photo. I smiled and chuckled for the happy moment.

This year flew by

As we end 2021, I wish you all the opportunity to wrap up this year in a manner that’s as satisfying as possible. Happy New Year’s Eve to all.
