The morning sky pulled me out of a warm bed

and completely captivated me 

as it showed it's brilliant colors for an introduction of a pretty day.

The next morning, I once again ignored the cold chill as I watched the sun sit on top of a covering of fog across the prairie........

The next morning.......the sun stayed in bed, while Sophie and I  braved the spitting of snow  , 

We got a little snow..............

I really mean.........."a little" snow.
Just enough to make a tiny snowman.

and not enough to make this hungry Cardinal stay away from the feeder.

Now we are getting the "Arctic Blast" sweeping across parts of the country, leaving the trees and what is left of their leaves, coated in ice.  

And now this year is fading away and a new year will be shining through , 
filling me with hopes of more beautiful sun rises and serene sunsets. 
Here's wishing you a very 
happy new year filled with the same!
Happy New Year!

IT is truly amazing how sunset and sunrises vary across the country. I haven't seen a pretty sunrise from my home in the Midwest, but we get some brilliant sunsets. This time of year we are usually so overcast we miss one or the other. Beautiful pictures. We still have no snow. Love your little snowman, he's so sweet! Did you make that cap?
Beau sends his howdy to Sophie. :D
