Home For Christmas?




It was dusk, and beginning to lightly rain.




 Even a lady bug needs a home and this rose was just fine!




My dear mother-in-love is having an unplanned hospital stay tonight, maybe she's been too busy, like a lady bug. However she should be home tomorrow, in time for Christmas. Our 16 year old son has gone to spend the night with his Grandfather, to keep him company.

Hoping you all make it home safely for Christmas, wherever home may be!

Sharing at This or That Thursday.

Season's Greetings Pieces of Sunshine/Karen,
Nice way to think of your self... has me think of you as radiantly glowy...

The wonder of having a real camera with real lenses... love the Ladybird, truly beautiful photos.

Speedy recovery for you mother-in-love, and a lovely gesture by your Son...

good wishes from magda and crew in Queensland

Pieces of Sunshine said...

Seasons greetings in return Magda. I appreciate your comments.

Regarding my camera, its a superzoom, fixed lens camera, not a DSLR.
There's a post here on my camera

I find it very convenient and with some editing in iPhoto, am generally happy with the results.

Waiting for the Dr to assess my mother-in-love, hopefully so we can take her home today.

Pieces of Sunshine said...

Thank you to all for your wonderful greetings!

I do so appreciate your visits and time spent leaving encouraging and friendly comments.

Your images are wonderful as always, yet I must say its the heart of what you say in your words that I find precious.

Hope all is well with your family for Christmas. I can still remember staying with my grandmother years ago when my grandfather was having a hospital stay.
