Christmas Eve, Bright and Sunny
Since we moved to our present home, we drive, almost daily, past a large, densely wooded tract with a small sign labeled "Lowami Hart Woods Park." I knew that the little creek that runs through our property disappears into that wood, and I have been interested in exploring some of the trails. Today seemed like the perfect day. We crossed "our" creek several times as we made our way deeper into the forest. Our little creek was widening as it traveled along through stands of tall Douglas fir.
Fresh air, exercise and the beauty of the forest was energizing. It was a perfect break in a busy day.
And now I am off to bed and looking forward to Christmas with my family. I wish you all a lovely day and the joy of Christmas present and memories of Christmas past to warm you.
