Merry Christmas from Nebraska

Here's a shot of our 1970's lights at the end of our driveway.  I put colored bulbs in there for the holidays.  Look at all of the ice on the pine's been raining all day!  What a mess.  Less than 2 weeks ago was one of them there blizzards so, the snow is left from that.  We have a large locust tree in our front lawn, see the effect of all the ice on it's branches at the top left part of the photo?  I think this is so pretty.

This little crab tree has berries for birds, I thought since they hadn't eaten them yet that it might be a mild winter, HA!

Our living room tree, looking in from the outside.

Our front stoop...see the wetness?  Rain all day......look out for ice tonight!  27 degrees overnight and possibly 10 inches of snow tomorrow, or more.  To the left is my $1 auction cement lion.  An old barn door leaning there (from my first husband...does he know me or what!? He gave that to me last yr. and we've been apart for 15 yrs.)  Great '70's double doors.  And, real wreath's on the orange
wooden doors....

Looking in our Dining Room windows, I have a tree decorated in all vintage stuff in there.

Sure wish this could really show the gorgeousity of the snow right now.  We had that foot of snow with the blizzard several weeks ago, but it's rained all day so, looks like an icing everywhere.

Our white pine has at least 100 pretty places on it with the ice.

Merry Christmas.  Most likely, we'll be snowed in for our first Christmas in my memory.  I'm 51 so, that's sayin' somethin'.  Pray for my OTR husband's journey home tomorrow.  Pray for my son's and their demons.  Most of all, pray for me....I need it.


  1. Prayers are winging your way as I post this comment.

  6. What beautiful and peaceful Christmas scenes!

    When I plug in my outdoor Christmas lights, I always think, "Well, at least the NEIGHBORS think that 'all is calm, all is bright'," even if there's some hustling, bustling, and dysfunction going on INSIDE the house! :-) I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

  7. I'm glad I came here after Christmas, to catch the mood again!

    Your pictures are so pretty, Cindy. Mine never look so clean and bright when I put them on the blog.
