November 19, 2010: Holly and Berries

In the midst of yet another busy day I stopped to walk myself and my pup before the skies opened up with their rain from a newly settling storm.

As if crunchy colorful leaves overhead and underfoot weren't gift enough, a shiny-leafed, plump-berried holly bush made itself known as it peeped out from amidst a hedge.

"Look Sammy! Christmas!"

Yes, I said it out loud. Yes, to a doggie. No, he didn't answer.

But my step was livelier for the duration of my most pleasant stroll.

Enthusiastic anticipation.

My mom mentioned a Christmas hymn to me last night (sang a few lines, in fact) and I was in the spirit. Yay for holly and the coming hollydays. :o)

ha ha... I've read that walking with a dog is better for a person than walking on their own. Maybe this is why! I've tried to nab my neighbour's dog for my early morning walks, but no success so far!
