- Where I stood
- In the cupboard (which I skipped entirely)
From where I stood in the kitchen earlier this week, I looked out our window to see the last remaining bit of color on our trees in the front yard. The window was open because of much warmer temperatures that we had for a few days.
A friend braved the rain to take us both to our church's "Secret Sister" party one night. The raindrops on the windshield looked like gold and silver droplets with the house and Christmas lights behind them. (Yes, I know it's a stretch.)
Saturday was the Christmas parade in the square. I have a confession to make: in the 14 years we have lived here, this was the first time we ever made it to the Christmas parade. Most years we planned to go but something came up (other plans or obligations, illness, etc.) and some years it just never made it on our radar. We went this year, and it was wonderful!
There was a (relatively) tiny and impressive replica of the clock tower and court house as one of the floats.
And this is the real thing:
The clock tower is enveloped in shadows in the next shot.
But these two shot, from my archives and from a time when Grace was 6, are my favorite shadow photos.
