Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

Nature's Red and Green Viewed from Inside Our Home~

We finally have winter weather and while I shall not, no, no... that would not do...I sure am COLD!  I am so not a cold weather person and as I have gone into even more avoidance of cold weather, as I have gotten older...did I just say that...yes, I did.  The temperature this morning was 17 and there was a slight wind blowing which did not help my chill to the bones condition.  I did manage to get to church and by the time I drove the 16 miles to arrive on time, I was warm enough to drag myself from the auto into the church building.  I took these images from inside different windows of our home.  I love shades of green, especially the greens created out in nature and those along with the lovely red of a all makes me very happy, even on these cold days of winter. 
Hoping everyone has a marvelous week, a happy and safe and yes, warm week~
