It is another gray and gloomy day here and the lovely sound of the rain is like an invitation to stay in bed and read a good book. Then I walked into the room and saw the holiday lights dangling from our eaves and smiled because if it were not gloomy, I would not have seen them sparkling as they are against the holly tree outside the window. This is the same holly tree that attracts the birds and squirrels that are a constant and delightful distraction as I write.
I apologize for the poor quality of this photograph taken through a window screen. It was the best I could do.
