Wishful thinking

 Click image to enlarge!
For Rains TAD I created a Snowy landscape. This image is what I want and some I want to remember. 
The snow is cotton. The house is created by my father and mother. 

The White dove of peace keeps my family healthy and safe in difficult times. 

A memory from Yellowstone, bison in snow

We had some frost today and I have been out sneaking on Fallow deer. I think those guys recognice me by now. They let me come rather close. Took a lot of shots but that will be for a later psot. 

I hope everybody has a great and healthy Chistmas. Now I am off to my Christmas dinner. Boiled ham and meatballs. 
Take care, greetings from Sweden.

Linking up with the following memes. My thanks to the hosts:

  5. Our family Christmas tree always had three white doves at the top. My son, my daughter and I could each place one. This entire page was a delight. Merry Christmas.

  6. When ever I see those red and white houses it brings a vision of Sweden to me, lovely scene. Wishing you a Happy Paint Party Friday Christmas Tracey x

  7. Hmmm ... boiled ham and meat balls. An interesting combination to say the least. I assume you will have some side dishes as well :) I love your scene with the house and trees and little people. It does look like what we would all wish for at Christmas. Your pictures are awesome too and believe it or not, my favorite is the "Little Moss in Snow". Everything about it is perfect. So, I know you are alone today and I won't say I am sorry because I that is way you will be safe as will your family. There will be a time when we can all be together again. Merry Christmas, Monica ... find ways to enjoy :)

  8. A lovely snowy landscape, although I am pleased that we don't have any snow. (yet) have a great holiday.

  9. I love how you depicted Christmas eve with the scene you created. This was such fun to see and read about. That dove of peace is stunning. I'm truly impressed and I love the Yellowstone image, too.

    I am sorry I'm late visiting. To be honest, on Thursday evening, "things" finally got to me. I simply shut down. I was not ready to celebrate or even visit my dear blogging friends. It was just too painful and I felt SO isolated and totally alone. I hope you understand why I haven't been by sooner to visit. Belated Merry Christmas, dear Monica.

    1. I understand Elizabeth, but I was surprised. I did not think you were so alone. Take care and a hug from me.

  10. Such a lovely post.
    Belated Christmas Wishes and a Happy New Year, let us hope 2021 will be better :)

    All the best Jan

  11. Hi there - really like that last, abstract image. Hope all is well.
