Good Fences #93 - Christmas Lights

 Wow it's the last day of 2015 (Where did this year go?) and it's time to close the year out by sharing with GOOD FENCES hosted by Theresa from: (The Run-a-round Ranch Report).

I miss last week (which I hated to do) and so here is what you would have seen last week:

These our the Christmas lights on our fence and my mom's fence next door.  Not the best quality photos as I have trouble shooting night scenes with my camera but I think they will work.

 This is the Chain link fence at our house.  See that big snowman?  Someone stole it a couple of nights before Christmas.  We replaced it with a different one but it sure makes me upset that people feel they have to steal from other people and especially at Christmas.

My mom's front yard and side fence.  - We love Christmas lights!

 This is in her back yard.  It's where all the old light sets got that don't quite work right anymore.

And for a different view of the same lights/fence....

 Pretty wild looking!

Wishing everyone a very HAPPY NEW YEAR!  -  Thanks for a great year of blogging with you.  -  See you back in 2016.

Winding Down

Hello Everyone & Welcome. -  By now you've probably figured out that I haven't posted in a couple of weeks.  -  I've also noticed that I've lost a few "followers" during that time.  I'm sorry you felt you had to leave but I honestly just did not have the energy or the desire to post much during the month of December.  For those of you still following,  Thank You!

Christmas here was different this year.  I must admit this was probably my worst year as far as "Christmas Spirit" goes.  I just couldn't get into it and strugged with a number of issues during the holiday season.  So that is why I didn't visit many blogs or post anything.  Why put a damper on other's holiday spirit just because you aren't into it that much.

Don't get me wrong,  I enjoyed parts of Christmas but there were some stressful things about it as well that just got to me a little more this year.

Yesterday we took our tree down...we had "issues" with two of the younger cats this year and sadly one of my very favorite, old glass ornaments got broken during the Christmas season. - Here is what I found yesterday after we had everything off the tree and ready to dismantle it......

There she is,  Miss Pepper at the very top of the tree....I hope next year she's older, wiser & stays out of the tree!

I hope to be back on track visiting blogs & posting as the year winds down and a New one begins.  Thanks for your patience, understanding & friendship.

Good Fences #90 - Aging Wrought Iron

 Hello! - It's time to join in the fun of GOOD FENCES hosted by Theresa (The Run-a-round Ranch Report).

For this weeks fence I'm featuring an old Wrought Iron fence that I pass by on my walks. - The last time I was by though they had part of the fence taped off and I think they might be going to remove it.

I like this shot as you also get the shadow of the fence and can see another (white) fence down the street.

 A different angle.  You can see a dip in one of the railings and the lichen growing on the stones that the fence is set in.

Finally a close-up view of part of the fence.

 It's super busy around here right now with holiday preparations so I may be slow visiting your blogs.  - Take care & enjoy the season.

Good Fences #89 - Snow much fun!

Welcome:  - I am still hoping to catch up with everyone's post from last week.  We had surprise company over the Thanksgiving holiday, put up our Christmas lights, I helped my mom decorate her house all day on Friday and by Sunday I was quite rundown and spent the day in bed. I am still trying hard to get by everyone's blogs so please be patient.

Joining GOOD FENCES today.  Be sure to stop by Theresa's blog, (The Run-a-round Ranch Report) and check out all the other particpants.

Well "Winter" arrived here a little early this year.  We had snow before Thanksgiving and then it snowed again on Tuesday night.  School was delayed 2 hours yesterday and canceled today due to icy road conditions.  Yesterday after I walked Coleen to school I took a short walk in the snow and captured some snowy fence scenes to share today.

Everyone knows I'm not a fan of winter or snow but I'm trying to find beauty in it so that's why I'm sharing these Snowy Fences today.  Enjoy!
