Happy Holidays to You….

Happy Holidays to You….


I’ve been away from my blog for a while, my dear readers, but I am incredibly happy to be back. I will share more about my absence right after the holidays, but for today, my message is simple……..my heartfelt wishes for joy for you and your families this holiday season.


                                                  We may rarely rejoice

                                                  At the cold winter wind,

                                                 Yet there’s joy in its voice.

                                                 It’s all in how you listen:


                                                    Harsh noise of wild geese

                                                    Is, too, a song of joy,

                                                   Harmony, and peace.

                                                  It’s all in how you listen:



                                               There’s chill in snow and ice – 

                                               Even sound seems to glisten….

                                              But Christmas sounds warm:

                                              It’s all in how you listen.



                                                        Where you are, may peace be, and

                                  Merry Christmas to all, and to all, a good night…..Laters, charisse




  1. Oh! Such a wonderful surprise to see your email today! Welcome back! Robert and I missed hearing from you. Can’t waiit to catch up. Love the snow pictures! Hope you had a Merry Christmas and hope you have a very happy safe new year! Love Victoria

  2. Beautiful photos! Your St. Bernard? —- wonderful! Thanks for sharing.

    • Thank you. I have an Afghan and a Beardie who did not sit for their Christmas portrait this year, so I used the St. Bernard, who sadly, is not mine. I had Newfoundlands for forever, but no photos of them in a nice winter snow. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Welcome back! Merry Christmas and a Happy Healthy New Year!
