The Shortest Day Walk...

Hello my sweets...I now know unequivocally that one cannot come down with 

The. Worst. Cold. Ever. 

and expect to also blog. That is why you haven't heard from me in for like ever. Well today..the shortest day of the year.. I finally busted out of the house and went for my first walk around the neighborhood in a long, long time. 

I hope this finds you all going with the holidays in the way that makes you happiest. I hope it finds you calm (hah!) and happy, eating and drinking good things, laughing with family and friends, and most of all feeling healthy! I have a lot of catching up to do!!

look at that sky, does it not look like winter itself is descending?

but the neighbor's orange trees loves it!

the majestic palm stands sentinel by the park..

and this tree dazzles with brilliant color...

the moss under the magnolia tree looks like Christmas velvet...

and the ginkgo leaves look like snow... sort of :)

Nicky in his cape and I "nick" a lemon from a generous neighbor...

while further along another neighbor offers ripe persimmons...

...three of which made it to my fruit bowl... to be dealt with later when I google persimmon recipes!

and our angel welcomes us home from my first walk outside, I feel like I might rejoin the living any day now!!

or someone you love!!
