Winter Lights

I thought I'd share a little bit of the view around our home over the past couple weeks.

My dear husband took this first picture. I love the play of the lights and the dark contrast of the tree limbs.

This is one of my favorite views -- the barn (not ours) behind our house. I guess it reminds me that I no longer live in the city, but in the country -- where I have always longed to live. This is what I see anytime I work at the kitchen sink.

I always have mixed feeling about snow. First, it means cold weather. Besides that, it means the inconvenience and added work of clearing driveways and sidewalks. The "big plus" for me is that snow reflects and magnifies light. Dreary winter days with not much light can play havoc with me. So, I like it when there is snow on the ground, a clear sky, and plenty of snow to reflect the light.

Winter does have its perks.
