A bitter, cold sunset (we have been spoiled with warm weather lately) helps bring Thursday to an end. I am pretty sure there are more wind turbines than people in Ransom, Illinois.
A still, chilly, beautiful first sunrise in 2020.
Just did a quick don’t-think-about-it-to-much look at 2019 and chose some favorites. Many thanks to my WordPress family for stopping by and for all your encouraging comments. Have a safe, prosperous New Year! Happy 2020 everyone!
And finished an impromptu overnight stay in Chicago taking in the lights at Lincoln Park Zoo!
Our entire family is celebrating Christmas on January 3 so that all 15 of us can be together. Those of us who were here decided to go to the Garfield Park Conservatory. This beautiful park dates back to 1874, and the plant conservatory is an absolute wonder.
Sending love and best wishes to you and yours this holiday season…
Traditionally, the family Christmas tree is set up the day after Thanksgiving, accompanied by a massive Christmas playlist. This year, with our kids gone to see in-laws, one living far away, and and one visiting his girlfriend’s families, it got done a day early. However, the one tradition that will happen today is that moment when all the day’s work is done (outside lights today), and we sit on the couch, turn off all the lights so that only the warm glow of the tree washes over us, and listen to Silent Night ( https://youtu.be/hTSkS0Abas4 ) by Mannheim Steamroller, arguably, the finest arrangement of that beloved hymn. May this season be filled with light and peace for you and yours.
