I missed the only color we had this week because I was at home hiding under the blankets after watching another horror movie recommended by my niece. Thankfully she was happy to capture and share the beautiful colors with me in a week mired in gray weather.
Luckily I’m always able to take a little color with me when I finally venture out into the moody gray landscape. I’m still hoping for blue skies and a white Christmas, but the odds are shrinking each day.
To escape this moody weather that was following me around, which is much better suited to my mid February winter mindset after the end of the football season, we decided a holiday walk through a great estate would brighten the day.
A roaring fire and Christmas lights and decorations everywhere immediately cast aside thoughts of the dingy scene outside and
the next time we looked outdoors we were greeted with an amazing view filled with color.
Instead of ordering a sun lamp, I think I will spend more time than usual this holiday season standing next to beautifully decorated trees
that not only brighten the room, but everyone’s spirits.
