Girl's best friends

The title may be cheating. This post is not about gemstones, even though it is about some small, colourful, brilliant objects that bring much joy to our life.

There are many precious things that don't cost much. On a cool autumn morning, the rain drops sparkled like diamonds.

The weather would be sunny, with scattered clouds. "The air up there in the clouds is very pure and fine, bracing and delicious. And why shouldn't it be? - it is the same the angels breathe." Mark Twain in Roughing It (1872)

There is still one week till the first Sunday in Advent, but since there were family members visiting us this weekend, we already decorated the two small spruces in front of the main door with Christmas lights.

One can spend blissful moments contemplating the stars, or the clouds, or the Christmas lights...

And that was the more lyrical part of this post!

I have the habit of saying that a good dictionary is a girl's best friend. Then I started to wonder what else a girl needs... 

(The photos not mine are by the BBC, IsaDora, and Nikon.)

Linking with Mosaic Monday, hosted by Judith at Lavender Cottage!

Have a lovely new week!
