Only One Blogger Was Hurt ----

Only one blogger - me - was hurt during  the preparation for this post.  I had planned, for today's post, to capture some wintry-wonderland, Christmas-themed  picture from the net and paste it on my blog to wish you all Merry Christmas.

Then I looked out the window and thought -"Heck, I don't need any picture from the 'net'.  My entire yard, street, village, county and beyond is a wintry wonderland.  So I began to take some pictures of the glorious scenery right outside my door.  I did this from  inside -where wintry wonderlands are best observed.   I opened the window in the bathroom to get a shot of the icicles and realized the screen would darken the photo.  Best take out the screen.  To do that the blind needed to be raised all the  way to the top.  It is  one of those heavy, wooden, wide-slatted blinds and just as it reached the top of the window, two feet above my head, the lock holding it in place gave way and it crashed down on my face.  I have a great, red scratch running down  one side of my nose.  I did take a picture to show you,  but trust me when I say a close up of my pores and wrinkles would have been hard on your stomach.

But the icicles look great.  Here is what I was looking at.
 From my bathroom window.

From my kitchen window

From the patio doors.  The Church behind us well hidden by the wintry scene.

So as you can see, there is no shortage of winter wonderland scenes here at the Harris Household.  For the next couple of days, at least, I will look at it  as mood-inspiring weather.

May you all have winter wonderlands to observe this Christmas.  Thank you  all for reading my blog  this past year and I'll be back writing again in 2014.

We don't have the ice, but brutal cold and lots of snow.
