Day 324 The Holly and the Ivy






Lo, how a Rose e'er blooming 
From tender stem hath sprung! 
Of Jesse's lineage coming 
By ancient sibyls sung 

A rose doth bear a flower 
All in the cold midwinter 
And at the midnight hour 

And he waits for her to find 
The heart she left behind 
And he prays she'll find her way 
To be his bride someday 

Ivy 
Of all the trees in the wood 
Holly wants the Rose 
Holly and the Ivy 
When they are both full grown 
Of all the trees in the wood 
Holly bears the crown 
Holly and the Ivy 
The running of the deer 
For his Rose to bloom 
Holly waits every year 

He waits for who to find 
The heart she left behind 
He prays she'll find her way 
To be his bride someday

Day 321 The amazing sky and other things you wont see today...


It was an incredible sky today with shades of blue and purple tinged with orange, the kind of sky that makes the now bare branches on the trees glow as if charged with current.  I was amazed.  I grabbed Cassandra (my camera) and started for the door just in time for the hail to come.  Hail!  Not on Cassandra, oh no!  Then the sky turned a deep purple, nearly black and my family and I watched for an unseasonable tornado that, by the way, never arrived.  Instead the hail turned to rain and the sun tried really hard to break through the clouds so, I looked for a rainbow.  Yeah, that didn't come to be either.  Now, I did try to capture the brilliance from the window, really I did, but it was not to be unless there is an interest in seeing hail on Sadie (my car), or hail in the grass below my living room window, or a sad, pathetic really, attempt to capture the rain that looks like a very blurry (thank you rain soaked window) gray day.  No?  I thought not.  So, today, for a photo we have Juniper.  Thank heavens for evergreens!

So, in review:
camera~ Cassandra
car~ Sadie
rain soaked window~ bad, very very bad
Go Juniper!

Day 316 What Key?



Alice
Mmm... tastes like cherry tart.
Grapefruit.
Pineapple.
Roast turkey.
Goodness! What did I do? 
Doorknob
You almost went out like a candle! 
Alice
Why, look! I'm just the right size!
Doorknob
No use. I forgot to tell you. I'm locked! 
Alice
Oh no! 
Doorknob
But of course, you've got the key, so... 
Alice
What key?
Doorknob
Now, don't tell me you've left it up there!

Day 308 Sisters


There is no better friend than a sister.  And there is no better sister than you.




She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities.  She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway.  She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark.  She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink.  Some days, she's the reason you wish you were an only child.  ~Barbara Alpert
