Enjoying a Clear Day

When it rains a lot it's always a pure joy to see the sky on a clear day.
Even better when the view is so lovely

*Total rainfall to date in 2018 1008.6 mm

I also love the twinkling light at night 
and
the cross on the top of the steeple.

Even though I've done a lot to prepare for Christmas I feel the advancement of time.
So much to do yet but the most important thing is not to stress and to enjoy the Christmas season.

Linking up with

Our World Tuesday

 Enjoy your week ahead.

  3. What a beautiful view and some great shots here. Seeing snow though even on the top of the mountains makes me feel cold 😊 Hope that you have a good week, Diane

    1. Thank you Diane. I do love seeing the snow at the mountain top and so far the weather hasn't seemed as cold as it has the past two years though the Winter in most of Canada is expected to be very cold this year. Have a great week too.

    1. That's an interesting comment. I'm not sure exactly what you mean since the weather in the photos isn't common here where I live in Winter where it's usually raining heavily. It also isn't common in the rest of Canada which is usually under snow. The snow is the photos is only at the top of the mountain for which I am grateful ;-)

    1. Thank you Carol. Lights at night in the dark of winter are some of my favourite things. When I went out tonight to find the star for my tree I saw a lot of lights all around the city.

  9. I always enjoy your photos of the scenery around you. It's so pretty. I don't know what the person above me meant about common, but it's certainly not common in my area!
    Yes, I need to remember to not get too caught up in the busyness of this season, but to enjoy!

    1. Thank you Mari. That's sweet of you to say. I too love to see the scenery elsewhere, in person and in photos. It's amazing how one can feel a bit stressed no matter how prepared. To be honest I am not usually so far ahead in Christmas preparation (as in having all my cards done, tree up, presents wrapped) and I still feel a bit stressed here and there. I think it's because I want to be sure to visit several friends, take a quick trip to see my niece and then in the New Year there are big plans :-)

  10. Beautiful.
    And I agree.
    Time passes quickly.
    I am trying so hard to stay in the moment, and not stress.
    Have a cozy evening. : )

A Few Seasonal Images

The tree this year is much narrower and a bit shorter so it can be squeezed into small spaces. I made these two winter scenes ...
