It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

In this cold, wintery weather, the quail enjoy the seed I’ve tossed on the ground for them

The fountain continues to flow underneath its dome of ice

While inside it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas (only took me three days to get the tree decorated)






This blog is coming to you courtesy of High Desert Hospice, who adjusted the dosages of husband’s medication yesterday and had their chaplain, the Soul Whisperer, visit with husband – between the two of those things, he slept well all night and is sleeping still, allowing me a good night’s rest and quiet time this morning. For this, I am more grateful than I can say! I dedicate this post to those wonderful people.

It is a season of enough.

    Hospice is a wonderful organization. The group who worked with our family during my father’s illness were so helpful.

    We’re hoping that your husband continues to have peaceful nights and days. You’re in our thoughts & prayers. Merry Christmas, Carol


  3. I’m so glad you’re getting a peaceful break, Carol. Blessings to you and your husband on this holiday season. xxx oh, and your tree is lovely, even if it did take 3 days to decorate…

    What lovely photos Carol, your tree is very beautiful this year. And I am glad for the rest you both had and for the gift of Hospice.

    I’m happy that you’re both getting rest. What a blessing, though it can seem like a small thing when you’re getting plenty of it. Your tree is lovely. It looks very cheerful and warm. Our cats still dictate that we don’t have a tree. One day…

    God bless HIgh Desert Hospice and the Soul Whisperer. They sound like angels. Your tree is so pretty. So happy you found a few moments to yourself.


  7. Carol – Hospice is an amazing heart-based organization. I’m so glad for the gift of respite they’ve given you. Your photographs are lovely. Absolutely lovely.

    Your tree is beautiful, Carol. Hospice is such an amazing organization, and I’m sure the people who work for Hospice must be angels of some kind.


  9. It seems like many of your followers, including myself, have experience with hospice. They are, indeed angels for what they do. I am glad they can give you enough- enough time to enjoy nature or decorating, enough peace of mind and enough sleep. All the best, Laura.

    Your tree is beautiful.

    So glad you had some help and were able to decorate your tree–and share a blog. You are lucky to have quail feeding beneath your feeder. Many blessings to you this holiday season, Carol.


  14. Dear Carol,
    I am so glad you have some helping hands. As always, your photos are beautiful, and your wonderful voice comes through with every word. Thinking of you, and sending you my best wishes.


I'd love to hear from you!
