Taking a Moment

Snowstorm at night
 Morning light
Merry Christmas Everyone!


  1. So warm and cozy inside, so stormy outside. Beautiful!

    Wishing you and very happy Christmas and all good things in the new year!

  2. Lovely, Lovey photos! It looks warm, cozy and wonderful inside. You've had an amazing winter so far, I'm hoping the worst of it is over! Stay warm and cozy and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too!

  3. Can't decide which I like more: the amazing black sculpture, or your windows ... each pane looks like it has been decorated with half of a xmas tree ... did you do that, or was it Jack Frost doing a little decorating for you? Beautiful!! While the weather may be challenging at other times, it sure sets the perfect scene for Christmas. Enjoy!

  4. Wow, Sandra! Just beautiful. It almost makes me want to be in Minne snooooooooooowta so I can sit in that beautiful room and look out the window!


  5. Those windows are amazing! Couldn't be more perfect if Martha's team of designers had worked on them. The more I see of that room the more I love it.


  6. The light is so gorgeous in these photos -- I think your "camera eye" is fantastic.

    Merry Christmas to you, too!

  7. And Merry Christmas to you and Mark and the rest of the family.
    I found out today I have walking pneumonia which means there are some plans to be revised for the next few days.

    Maybe is all carefully planned so I am forced to rest. I have a pile of New Yorkers this high waiting, I wish there wasn't a need to get pneumonia for me to be able to read them :)

    Hugs and good wishes for the new year, I am off to bed.

  8. I love looking at the photos but I'm glad the snow is all yours. We are getting our fist cyclone for the year forming up north ~ thankfully a long, long way from us.

  9. Thank you Marion. I return the wishes to you and yours.

    Mel: it has surely been a winter to remember. Merry Christmas!

    Bonnie: the decorating on the panes is all Mother Nature's doing!

    : I think you should have a little bit of MN time. Stumpy and Howard would have so much fun!

    Deb: Only nature could rival Martha!

    Elizabeth: sometimes the light is so perfect I have to grab my camera.

    Allegra: you are having a run of rotten luck. Stay quiet and allow yourself to be well. I wish you and your B. Loved a Happy Christmas, albeit subdued.

    Ganeida: Don't let the storm blow you away! It's a good thing you are from a sailing family.

  10. what a gorgeous and warm and inviting place to be today.

    thank you for sharing this light.. these moments...

    I am so glad we are connected in this windows to our souls way, Sandra. You have blessed my life .

  11. Awww deb, you make me blush. It is a wondrous thing to meet across the sphere.


I really appreciate the concept and sentiment behind awards, but I cannot participate in them anymore. I have too may and I have not got the time to devote to participating properly. To all who have honored me, I am grateful but I don't have seven more things to tell anyone about myself! And I'm a terrible passer-oner.
