I don't believe I have been this cold since I was a  child 
it really is surprisingly cold
the season is... oh so beautiful.

Last night I 
the warm wrapped coziness  
my living room
 a cold night to stand on the Galveston seawall
 up into the dark skies
 shooting star!!!

the constellation Orion and Sirius are in the background

I would have loved sharing stars and desserts on a cold Galveston night with you,my friend

I wish you the gift of wonder!


  1. Nope, I will not be going outside tonight. Hahaha... I think it will take one more day to melt the ice away here in Dallas, TX and will be delighted when it has left. However, I do love looking up at the stars - I just prefer it when I am not freezing. Merry Christmas!!

  2. I will let you go out and count stars FOR me, Dottie. We have cold advisories here- it is well below zero and SOOO cold with heavy winds off the bay-ugh- xo Diana

  3. Happy dreams, Dottie! Happy dreams!
    Hope all yours and that of your readers come true for Christmas. :-)

  4. I always smile when I see you have posted, and come straight here. Beautiful photos but do stay warm! It's cold here too, for us.

  5. How lovely, I too am a child of warmer climes but viewing your beautiful sky definitely would have been worth the chill.

  6. I've sunbathed on the beach in Galveston in February. Rarely very cold except for the wind. Love it down there.

  7. Oh to be able to see stars like that. This far south and living in a heavily populated area, lights etc. we see few. :-(

    Winter weather sounds good to me, a wonderful change of pace, as we are still having very warm temps in the 80's.

    Thank you for sharing the beauty that surrounds you ~ FlowerLady

  8. What a magical evening you had Dottie, sounds so wonderful. And now I have the old song Galveston on a loop :)

    Happy Saturday!
