Thursday generally means Thursday Doors, but I don’t have any holiday doors handy and no desire to go out to find some this late in the day. I got my Covid booster and flu shots today and fortunately only have a slightly sore arm on the Covid side. (I chose to get one in each arm.) I’ve been doing Christmas things at the house, including wrapping most of my husband’s gifts, putting on the French Christmas tablecloth that my s-i-l gave us some year ago, and playing Christmas songs on my keyboard (last year’s big and much-appreciated gift from my husband.) But although I don’t have doors, I do have something colorful to brighten your day.

Life in Colour: kaleidoscope

The last time I was in France, we came across a plethora of these beauties, but despite their colorful beauty, they’re deadly as seems to often be the case in the plant and animal world.

Thanks, Jude, for inviting us to share color and brightness in a month often lacking in both. That’s not true in the American Southwest where the plants are relaxing, enjoying the lack of high heat, I think, but no matter where we are, we can always use color so let’s have at it!

I’ll start with something whimsical, the “glass” that my drink came in while in San Diego months ago. The drink was good and the food absolutely delicious. Best of all, I didn’t have to pay. 🙂

On a more somber note, today is Pearl Harbor Day in the US as well as my mom’s 92nd birthday. I imagine that day wasn’t her best birthday, especially as her family lived in California.
