Welcome to Ordinary Photos week #16. This week had many emotions to it. Sunday started out wonderful with a call from Steve’s Uncle Hugh who lives in Vancouver, Canada. Steve had called him a couple of times and not reached him so he was thrilled to connect and had a great time chatting.
It’s been cold so we have kept busy in the evenings putting a puzzle together in front of the fireplace.
We spent an evening walking in downtown Des Moines and enjoyed the lights at the Capitol Building.
We wandered along the riverfront in Des Moines and captured these photos with the iconic Travelers Insurance sign downtown.
I finally set out my nativity set. I haven’t felt like putting up all my decorations this year but this one was a must.
One of my favorite Christmas items. My dad made this for me years ago and I have treasured it since. Very simple yet beautiful.
Finally to end the week, Even though it’s hard to tell, Steve is very happy, excited and relieved. He just had his first Covid-19 vaccination! Hoping this is the beginning of the end. Unfortunately this pandemic will not end soon enough for so many. My dear Aunt passed this week from Covid complications. So very sad, not even her children could be with her.
This is it for well #16 of Ordinary Photos. Again, I am finding out no week is ordinary. I am grateful for all the blessings we have. Feeling very hopeful for the future and end of the pandemic! Have a Merry Christmas!
