Welcome to our creative Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. With holidays approaching am taking time for me, family and friends thus, I am combining some posts to limit some blogging time and also want to be able to respond to bloggers' comments which we enjoy so much. Are you busy also with the preparation of the holiday? What holiday is foremost in your plan? Winter Solstice? Christmas? Kwanza? and more?What is your favorite part to the holidays?
I love the lights. The tree lights, the window lights and Winter Solstice a time of honoring the light beginning to return ever so slowly. I also love Christmas and celebrating with family and friends. I am also preparing for another Holiday Show that will run through the 23rd of December. I will have some photography and mixed media being displayed and for sale. All of these times are creative to me and enhance and strenghten my creative spirit.
We are sharing with:

QUOTE FOR THE DAY: 'The great question...which, I have not been able to answer, despite my thirty years of reseach into the feminine soul, is 'What does a woman want?"
~ Sigmund Freud
Lovely photo of Miley and Owen.ReplyDelete
The roses are beautiful and so too is the photo of the winter morning.
I haven't started thinking of Christmas yet
but suppose I had better get my head in gear!
Have a good week
The great question is not a great question.ReplyDelete
There are others which are greater.
But these are my secrets.
Have a good day.
Very nice work! The children are delightful and the Sunday sketch is so fun and creative!ReplyDelete
beautiful post, wonderful photos, I also enjoy the lights and the contagious excitement that is in children at this time of year, its the only time all year we all mangage to get together as a family tooReplyDelete
Such richness in your combination posts; every part of it radiates joy. Lovely sharing...thank you so much.ReplyDelete
Great post, Carol! Love all the photos and Haiku! With the recent birth of my second Grandchild, I haven't even thought about the approaching Christmas season until now. First thing on my list will be to paint up two Christmas ornaments for my two beautiful granddaughters. :)ReplyDelete
Thank you! No word verification, just the Blog Owner approval message. :))) I greatly dislike commenting on blogs that use Word Verification. It's so frustrating as some of the words are very difficult to read and can take more than one attempt to get it right. I tend to move on if my second attempt is rejected. I've never had Word Verification on my blog as I just wouldn't put my readers through the frustration when there are other options?ReplyDelete
lovely blog, I like the shot of the roses and the haiku.ReplyDelete
Love your sketch and the photos, have a great weekReplyDelete
such a happy haiku there... no complexities... i love the sheer simplicity of Nature at work...ReplyDelete
Love the Christmas tree, love the photo, love the haiku.ReplyDelete
As I read your haiku for today's Carpe Diem I had to smile and look outside. Today here a raging storm with heavy rains is torturing the country. Last leaves falling and some leaves struggle to stay where they are, but they loose after a while. It's really nature's cleaning day here. Well ... I think that I have to sweep my garden tomorrow (smiles).ReplyDelete
What a wonderful created haiku Carol and ArtMuse Dog. Really stunning haiga. Thank you for sharing this wonderful creativity with Carpe Diem.
Amazing morning shot ... the kids look beautiful :-)ReplyDelete
Have a great Sunday :-)
Winter holidays sneak up fast Happy SS!ReplyDelete
Nice sketch and lovely photos! This is my favorite time of year, but after being sick for three weeks I am down to the wire for making something for Christmas cards. So, I'd better get busy this week! ;)ReplyDelete
beautiful photos and I love your Christmas tree, it has a country feel to me! I'm taking the holidays one day at a time but have to work on the Christmas shopping! It snowed here today for the first time!ReplyDelete
A rain as a cleaning day makes me much more happy for the fact it comes.ReplyDelete

Wow, you have been sooo creative!! I love your sketch and your photos are beautiful. I always find reading haiku relaxing, it soothes the soul. Thank you for sharing. I have started to think about Christmas but I keep forgetting. This is my first Christmas in Australia and its summer, just dosent seem 'right' but I am sure I will get my head around it once the season is in full swing :)ReplyDelete
Fun post!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.ReplyDelete
Beautiful post, I love your sketch.ReplyDelete
Your sketch is wonderful! I love the whimsical Christmas tree. Gorgeous photos and sunrise. Wishing you a fabulous week.
you packed beauty in image and sentiment into thisReplyDelete
enjoy those moments with family
Love the roses and the sunset. Christmas is all about the family but I do love going into London and looking at all the wonderful window decorations and lights. Everywhere is so festive. Must take some photos of the decorations and share them soon.ReplyDelete
Beautiful and breathtaking! Your haiku poems are also very good. I love Christmas decorations. My twin and I got a lot as gifts over the years and we bought some every year! I also love the lights. All the very best at the sale. Your work should do very well. Take care and enjoy the holiday season.ReplyDelete
For some reason, my computer won't allow me to make a comment at day 10. But, I wanted you to know I had visited. I get annoyed when a glare comes off a piece of art with or without the flash. Sometimes I take the piece outdoors to photograph and the glare isn't as bad.ReplyDelete
