Sunny day here in NW Iowa-still brown but warm.

Last night as we were driving down the lane towards the house, I saw a lane with just the prints of a deer walking down it. The undisturbed snow was really pretty. No one has driven behind the house out around the buildings, so it's just a peaceful looking area.

Another gray day with slight flurries, but I started the morning out with TRX, yin yoga and my light box therapy, so it doesn't look so bad.

It's December, but it sure looks like November outside my window... rain, grey skies, chilly temps. But, I did get the house decorated today.

Today we have left NW Iowa and the snow and headed to SW Iowa where it's raining. I haven't seen this much rain since July. It's really quite lovely to behold.

This morning has the usual weak December sun, but at least it's bright and a light dusting of snow... driveway all clear.... however, our furnace is not working and I am bundling up.

I look out and see newly built houses where wildflower fields were in June. The freshly sloped hillside topped with fresh sod and the rainspout right down to our property line means that even more run off will go across our lawn and gardens!

It was a beautiful frosty morning here as well. Tonight looking out it is dark by 5, I just don't like that. The trees have quieted down since the wind isn't blowing 45 mph.

This morning was beautiful. The fog left frost all over the trees and grass. I'm not ready for snow, but seeing the white this morning was awesome!

I look out the dining room windows to the wonderful huge honey locust tree in our front yard that shades the yard in summer and was where our children's swing hung for years. Now it is a poetry of denuded limbs reaching into the winter night's sky.

Right now I'm sitting at the kitchen table looking out the patio doors. I see the farm buildings that are now empty of pigs since my husband gave up raising them. Past the buildings I see gently, sloping hills which are brown. On the hills are dots; black cows grazing on the brown grass. I wonder what they are getting out of dead grass???

Aren't we lucky to live in the country, TSMALLEY and MUSICMOMOF2?

My view includes a hill, that has natural grasses and wild flowers through the spring and summer, dotted by trees that birds and the wind helped to plant. The hill slopes down to a stream that a beaver has tried to dam but it keeps running. Beyond the hill are fields just waiting for their seeds to nuture corn and beans next spring. I get to watch hawks and eagles fly and soar and often get visits by deer. It is my private stress reliever.

We are in southwest Iowa. Depending on which window you look out, you will either see a bunch of trees (to the north and west - great wind break!) or farm fields. We are kind of down in a valley.
