Season's Greetings...

 It wasn't a spectacular Christmas.  Pretty quiet.  Kelly and I have the Yule log cake another shot.  This one tasted amazing, but didn't even resemble a log.

Guess we won't win any cake decorating contests.
Ella was wore out.  
I took her for a walk today.  It was actually nice pretty nice out with a warm South wind.

I was able to capture this Solstice sunrise.  A beautiful way to begin winter.  I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas celebration.

Hello moon

 Not much going on to speak of.  Just keeping my head above water before Christmas.  Today was beautiful and the moon last night was breathtaking.

It looks peaceful.  Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season.

Keep your eyes open...

 It was a long miserable week.  I've never been so happy for the weekend.  Yesterday wasn't much better as the wind blew and it snowed some.  Today Ella and I couldn't wait to go for a run.  That was short lived.

Our ridge was covered in fresh lion tracks.  Ella wanted nothing to do with it and headed back to the cabin.

Last week this photo was posted online.

It wasn't taken far from our place.  I'm sure they are the cats that made the tracks I saw today, due to the several different sized prints.  

Ella will be staying on the porch for awhile.  She is so funny, because she barks now before she goes anywhere.  We will have to be extra alert.
Other than that, life is slow.  I am happy to report that I'm ready for Christmas.  Gifts are bought and the lights are up.  I sure enjoy seeing them when I come home from work. Are you ready for Christmas?  Do you enjoy Christmas lights?

Oh deer...

 Hunting is over so I've switched to a camera and have had pretty good luck.  Here are a few local beauties.

Above, this guy's ear is all mashed, so we call him Holyfield.  After the Tyson) Holyfield fight, where Tyson bit off Holyfield's ear.   

They have really been fighting.  Most have broken tines and a few have even broken off the whole antler.  

My Christmas present shipped quicker than expected and was difficult to hide, so it was an early Christmas for me.  Not only that, but we got some snow. 

A new bumper for my Jeep.  Thank goodness for YouTube videos.  I never would have figured out how to get the old bumper off otherwise.  Most women want clothes and jewelry.  Give me Jeep parts any day and let me put them on.  My husband did have to help undo the factory bumper bolts.  I gave it every once of my strength and they wouldn't budge.  I feel better with this bumper as there are a lot of deer around here.  I had this type of bumper on my old Jeep and it held up good.

I took this photo bow hunting last week.  I love sunrises and sunsets.  The colors are always so intense.  Do you have a lot of deer where you live?  Where do you see them most often on the road or in the yard?
