Sunday Stroll - December in the Village

Haiku and I went into the village for a little window shopping this afternoon. A light misty rain fell as we walked along a main street dressed for the holidays.





The warming pots and ice sculptures from last night's winter street festival remain on the sidewalks. The street is quiet today without the shoppers, carollers, and pink-cheeked children.

Despite the light rain this afternoon, winter has settled into the village for the season.

Good for you for strolling, Aisling! I passed up the oportunity today, with dark gray skies and drizzle here. It was good day to sit inside by the lighted tree.

Joyce, I think I'm the only one who did! Hopefully next Sunday you'll have better weather to get outside! :)

Aisling,
I love your new wintery look to your blog and your photos of your stroll through the village, even in the rain! The ice sculptures are magnificent! Enjoy a bit of time now that your courses are on reprieve . . . enjoy that lovely family of yours!

Ruth,

Thank you for coming by to see my stroll. The rain has turned to snow over night, glazing the back roads with ice. So, the kids have a snow day and I have an extra day to enjoy them! :)

You really live in a beautiful place, Aisling - both your personal rural home and the nearby town. I esp. love the 'prescriptions' -is that a painting on a wall, like a mural? The ice sculptures are just lovely. I think our blog headers look a bit alike, don't you - that kind of blue/white color.

Nan, Thank you. I do think it is beautiful around here. And yes, that is a mural on the pharmacy wall. Isn't it fun? Every year in summer, that wall is lined with 100s of hollyhocks that fill a narrow garden bed that runs the length of the building.

I think our blog headers are similar in color and "feel" but your hills look more like mountains than mine! :)

I enjoy your strolls. It's always nice to see the world through someone elses eyes.
