Sunday Snapshot: Twinkle, Twinkle

It’s after 11:00 p.m. and, despite contemplating it for much of the day, I’ve come up with nothing to write about for today. (I mean, I’m excited that we’ve been given a two-hour delay at work tomorrow due to a possible ice storm, but that’s not much to craft a post around.) I also didn’t take any photos this week that I haven’t shared, making even my usual lazy fallback complicated.

So, at the risk of this being the lament post ever, I decided to take inspiration from my neighbor Maggie – whom I know only on the Internet despite the fact that I live like 30 feet from her – and photograph the, uh, bold light display across the street. (Maggie posted a couple of pictures of said lights to Instagram yesterday.)

On the… ahem… bright side, I dig sparkly lights, so I kinda like these. Which is a good thing, since they’re basically right outside my bedroom window.

Twinkle, Twinkle

So maybe it’s time to make a suggestion box for blog topics, eh?

    Always inspiration in that set-up!

    When he was setting up before Christmas, Trevor was making conversation with him and he said, “Just wait for the final vision… you have no idea. The neighbors LOVE this.” I do admire his confidence ;-)…. and I’m intrigued by the new post-Christmas vision where he changed out the colors.

    At any rate, time to meet in real life! Duh.

    Love the lights & the colors — they brighten up the dreary January landscape. Kudos to your neighbor!! I was one of the last to extinguish my lighs in our neighborhood this past weekend — hate to see the twinke go away.

    I just took the stockings down yesterday. Maybe a blog post idea is ‘things we have in common with that neighbor’ 🙂

    The lights went on the outside of the house 1 month prior to Christmas, so the person that hung them (not me) said they WILL stay up until 1 month after Christmas. I like the twinkling, but I’m also embarrassed that they’re still up and ON at night. The sun is now up when the kids get home from school, so it’s OK for the lights to go.
