Light Through The Curtain

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas, if it's a holiday you celebrate. I ignored it, other than using some of my vacation time to give myself the night off from work on Christmas Eve.

I took the photo above months ago, but when I looked at it tonight, it seemed an appropriate image for this day. It reminds me of a stained glass window, with it's rich colors. I find it also has a hopeful feeling to it, with the light illuminating even the darker colors. With the gloomy financial situation affecting so many on the planet these days, it is good to keep in mind that the light is still there for us, just beyond the curtain. Brighter days shall shine upon us again.

And here's a closer look at her feline beauty...

Ahhhhh, tea...

For me, there is something so very satisfying about wrapping my hand around a cup of hot tea on a cold, dark winter's night.

When I left work the other morning, I noticed how beautiful the mountains were, with the fresh snow that had fallen. So I went home and got my camera to take a few photos. Even the dead weeds in my driveway looked magical with their icy frosting:

And here's how the mountains looked:

The crows were out playing, too:
