New Year 2012

Posted by Lorac Saturday, 31 December 2011 8 comments

Happy New Year

 Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!

Out  on the back roads the other day. Saw this flock of turkeys looking really glad Christmas was over!
All the best everyone.

Moon Haze

Posted by Lorac Sunday, 11 December 2011 8 comments

The full moon had a haze and rings around it last night.  Now I know why. Huge change in weather. It was quite cold last night and during the day. Today? +5. Bonus!

Hope everyone has a great week!

SkyWatchFriday - Mosel Valley

Posted by Lorac Thursday, 8 December 2011 17 comments

On a recent trip to Germany it was severe fog for three days and no view from the hills we were staying in. On day four the fog cleared and gave us this magnificent view of the Mosel Valley with the Mosel River and wine village of Krov. Standing way up in the hills looking down into the vineyards with a glorious sky for SkyWatch Friday.

Trip to Germany, Scenic Sunday, SOOC

Posted by Lorac Saturday, 3 December 2011 12 comments

I had the wonderful experience of a trip to Germany and The Netherlands to visit my best friend of 30 years. The last time I was overseas was to visit her 5 years ago in Holland where she lives. This time we decided to go to Germany for a few days and act like tourists.
We went to a rented cottage in the Mosel River area. For four days we visited towns all up and down the Mosel. Everywhere were vineyards on the hills and quaint towns below. This is a castle outside of Cochem.

Christmas is a whole season there. It starts in the middle of November in most places with the Christmas Markets. I really enjoyed the decorations and festivities in the different towns. A little Gluwein in the markets seemed to aid in that enjoyment too! Each town had their own special mugs to celebrate the new Christmas season.

Can you think of a cozier way to enjoy a coffee outside in the chilly air?

The bells on the outside of this tower went off as we were admiring the view. Scared the Dickens out of me!

Up in the vineyard hills we found a cave with a cask in it. Private stash of one of the vineyards I assume.

Found this tucked in a back alley. It was a small cafe and this was the patio. In the summer it would be entirely covered in a grape vine over the customers having their coffee.
