Another day is done.
In the first photo above, notice the little sliver of clearing along the distant horizon. We were pretty sure a sweet sunset was on the way. We were not disappointed! Look carefully right above the sun in the second picture to see the sun pillar rising into the sky. "Light pillars occur when natural or artificial light reflects off flat ice crystals in the air close to the Earth's surface. Light pillars caused by the Sun are called Solar or Sun pillars."

The theme this week on Postcards for the Weekend is "December Holidays." We are linking up with Maria and have this from our collection, a determined Santa ... 1920s? ... signed Twelve trees .. and this little card inspired our Closing Thought for today.
I had no reindeer
And I had no sleigh
But I got in there

Closing thought ...
If you want to get somewhere you have to know where you want to go and how to get there. Then never, never, never give up.
