A Rare Alignment..... Venus, Jupiter & Moon

We have had rain since my last post about Venus & Jupiter. I was getting worried that we wouldn't experience this rare alignment. But, the day's clear skies held. And, while we toured our neighborhoods Christmas lights celebration, Rob and I celebrated as we witnessed something near and dear to our hearts..... our celestial wonder, the rare alignment of a crescent Moon, Venus and Jupiter ... not to be seen again until 2052. Peace be with you!

My kind of snow....

This morning, I ran into Beaufort to drop off a painting for the member show at the Beaufort Art Association Gallery. It's a windy day, wsw winds from 15 to 25 mph. with temps in the low 50's. Along Rt. 170, I encountered a flurry of large white snow flakes - the kind that are perfect for catching on you tongue! What a beautiful sight! The sun was shinning, the sky blue, and snow flakes everywhere! Well........... OK, it wasn't really snow but, the flying seeds of the Sea Myrtle sure did make a fine imitation of snow flakes :) Like I say..... my kind of snow. I'm living in the right place :)
