And that's the way it is, especially in winter.Don't worry; Christmas in just a few weeks. Light and life. Festivity. Exhaustion. Then a good winter's sleep!
Cheers, dear Willow.
Ditto. Isn't it great?
Trying to cheer myself up on this late night in November. Just watched a Christmas special by Hallmark. Big mistake. Not only did the show bring me to tears, but so did every single commercial. I am such a sap!
Long may the afterglow of this holiday stay with you.
Whatcha drinking? That glass looks so beautiful.
Willow,Leftovers, not. I wax. Pre-hibernation.T(burp)fool
How many shopping days are there before Easter?
On a hot night like tonight your world looks like heaven.
Ahh...the mellow melancholy : )
Those few words make me smile. And feel happy.
i love the settled afterglow of a holiday. the sense of fortune and grace is a welcome friend. peaceful times at the manor!! steven
The perfect photo of a perfect event.
That is a wonderful moment, indeed.
Warmed by the fire of love ....
Happy Thanksgiving to you dear willow.
yes I know this stillness
The stillness of the night is heavenly especially on a cold wintry night.
Glad to know that all is well with your world, Willow, and that you have a good Thanksgiving. Have a nice week.
And the merriest of holidays to you my dear. You are a blessing in my life, new found this year, for which I am grateful! Thanks so much.
My, but it is a bleak November morning at my house; how your fire cheers me. I've been in "hibernate mode" since the holiday passed us. Now, I suppose, it is time to pull out the lights and spice.
Beautiful image and beautiful words, reflecting contentment. Lovely.
Nice. I love that scene.
My favorite holiday done for another year. It was lovely, just like your serene photo. Hope you and yours had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Your joy and contentment come shining through in both image and words.

For over adecade we travel to TX forChristmas to see my in-laws.So nice to see the relaxedstate that you and the manorseem to be in; puts us all ina reflective and mellow mood.
Yes, a joyous Thanksgiving, even if 3 kids have been sick. All under one roof, and this mother hen is still clucking away at the joy that brought me. I adore your photography - it is so in-the-moment and has such feeling. Great angles, lighting. Do you use it on automatic or do you adjust settings? Can't wait for the next magpie. I'm jotting down thoughts and looking up words all the time. :)
Willow, dear Willow, you dFO have a name, yet to me you will always stay Willow.Hugs and Blessings . . . Arija

After a very busy long weekend of house guests, family, food, fun, and more food...I am now thankful for peace and quiet and leftovers. Loved your Thanksgiving gratitude post and photo!
Great to know all's well with your world - today's the first day of our Australian summer!
You really do some great photography, Willow. Love the intimacy of this warmed image.
