The Weekend Roundup - Christmas & New Year

Last week's assignment: Starts with Christmas, Favorite, and Red & Green.

This week's assignment: New Year, Favorite, and Festive.

Starts with Christmas: What better post for 'Starts with CHRISTMAS' than this ornament which commemorates our first CHRISTMAS together.

Favorite: What? No horse? Dream on. This is my favorite pup, Gus, wearing his dreaded CHRISTMAS hat. I always try to get a good pic in a Santa hat, but it never works. :)

However, my favorite thing to do on CHRISTMAS day is to take a drive. During our drive we stopped to check on the mama-to-be horses.

Red & Green: I have a lot of pictures with RED & GREEN, but all have to do with Christmas decorations. However, Mr. Cardinal is looking mighty fine in RED with the GREEN cedar trees in the background.

Starts with New Year: The NEW YEAR last year brought snow and frigid temperatures. Here's hoping for a milder 2022 NEW YEAR.

Favorite: And my all-time favorite thing about a new year is the mamas and their new babies. 

Festive: There's nothing more FESTIVE at a party than live music. I tried to upload a video, but it didn't cooperate.

The Weekend Roundup - Y

 Today's assignment: Starts with Y, Favorite, and Yellow.

Starts with Y: YUCK! Starts with Y. Found this hawk enjoying a roadkill snack—unlucky raccoon? I had to drive around them. Mr. Hawk wouldn't budge.  

Favorite: How do I come up with a horse for the letter Y? I think a YOUNG one works.

Yellow: A goldfinch enjoying the sunflowers? Yep. Works for YELLOW.

An Excerpt from Blackthorne Cove

Emerson's hands shook so hard, it was difficult to move the slide lock. When the door opened, she quickly ran down the back steps and through the weeds in the yard. She slipped through a crack in the back gate and ran as fast as she could down the alley. Turning right onto a side street, she picked up her pace. Nothing was more important than putting distance between dying and living.

Weather: WAITING for the tornado WARNING that is bound to follow these clouds.

Looks like an X: This look like an X to me.
