My husband and I , with our dog, Tate, moved to Buenos Aires, 8 years ago. Life has never been the same since ~ Back in the USA ... life is still not the same !
It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Summer

Yes, this is the week between Christmas and New Years.. warm, sunny, bright.
The rooms are full of .. no, not Christmas greenery, no wreath, no tree ..
Flowers.
Summer flowers.
The window boxes on the balconies are bursting with new blooms and sweetly, one of the plants is sheltering a doves nest.
Two little eggs, one little mama bird sitting there all day and all night.
She was in the sun all day, but I moved a plant and made it shady for her.. I know, I have to move the "furniture" around for the birds too ~
She has finally stopped flying away when I open the door .. she waits, I go away, she relaxes.
We decided to go out to the Racetrack today, just for the fun of it. . being outdoors, seeing the horses..
Not thinking that they were perhaps not racing here in town but out at the beaches.
I guess even race horses like going to the beach in summer ..
It was still beautiful to be there.. horse free but beautiful.
We have been blessed with pretty much perfect weather so far.
The nights are still cooling down, the days are bright and not too humid and being outdoors is preferred to just about anything.
Now that the Christmas shopping chores are over, we can relax and enjoy the warm sunny days.

I love the story about the Mother dove nesting on your balcony. For years, in my former home, I would have a mother turtle dove sitting on her nest, the father nearby, then one day two babies would be born. Always two, never one, never three.

Love the third picture, looking up, through the trees.

Have a wonderful, prosperous New Year!

Thank you Madison !
She remains on her nest now when we open the doors or close the shutters, she trusts us not to steal her babies.
The trees here are so amazing, I could probably fill a book with tree photos :) Not too exciting but they are so very beautiful.
Happy Holidays !
