The shortest day of the year is coming right up. And sometimes December feels this dark, even in the afternoon. But if you ask me (which you didn’t), “It is better to plug in a string of winkie lights than to curse the darkness.” To paraphrase and update the old proverb.

Beautiful . . . makes me wish I could paint.
The hardest part of painting, though is seeing, and I’m pretty sure you do that.
So lovely, twinkling Christmas lights always make me feel serene.
RE: Winkie lights against the cursed darkness. I only hope Bartlett’s has an agent in northern Michigan. Good gawd, you’re funny.
Sarah — winkie lights are my first line of defense. After coffee.
Love the picture! Looks like the piles of snow are in the sky. Thank goodness for those winky lights on the house!
The piles of snow are momentarily in the sky. About to fall on us. 🙂
Saw this on Facebook but had to come and leave a comment here. Love this image! Love the thought, too. The days are too darned short right now, but soon they’ll be turning longer again, and you’ve got the perfect antidote.
I have realized that sometimes you need more than one string, though.
