Nothing new ;-)

... just the old moon.



As I see the world these days mostly from the windows of my office ;-) this was the outlook this evening with the raising moon. To the right the so called Holzturm (wood tower), 15th century, part of the former city walls in Mainz on Rhine River. The tower isn't made of wood though, but got its name because in former times wood was piled up nearby. Photo sure is nothing spectacular, because snow is lacking :( And no snow to expect for the next fortnight ...

Still some days to go with a lot of work. And no Christmas shopping done yet *sigh*.

Love this song, Mike. Thanks for posting!

Mary walks amid the thorns,

Kyrie eleison!
Mary walks amid the thorns
Which seven years no leaf have borne.
Jesus and Mary.

What ‘neath her heart doth Mary bear?
Kyrie eleison!
A little child doth Mary bear,
Beneath her heart he nestles there.
Jesus and Mary.

Lo! Roses on the thorns appear,
Kyrie eleison!
And as the two are passing near,
Roses on the thorns appear.
Jesus and Mary.
...

And no, I won't go to the beach of Rhine River but spend the holidays with my family in another place. But I visited Christmas Market today ... That's why I'm going to post a new blog, lol.

Maybe you will be going to Mainz beach for Christmas this year, Barb? I went to our beaches yesterday only to discover there were no beaches :(...15 feet/4.5 meter waves crashing in and washing the sand out to sea...just wet rocks left behind.

Yes, Scott, mild Christmas days. And if the cold will come in full force later in January, plants will suffer and freeze, like they did two years ago on my balcony :(

Hi Barbara,

It does look like a warm and wet Christmas this year, but not as warm as last year. Christmas day last year it was 22C (72F) in Stuttgart, which was a new record high temperature. I believe most of Deutschland was the same.

Quoting 1. airman45:
No white Christmas for us this year.

Not for us, either, Scott...

Hi Barbara - Winds picking up here, but poor Scotland will get the brunt of it again, with damaging gusts of over 80 mph!

Hope work eases off a little to let you enjoy Christmas!

Hi Barb, I was wondering where you went. Nice to see you back. I saw that moon also and in about the same size and color as I drove home from a long hard day at the beach yesterday :) It was beautiful, wasn't it? I like your view also. Sorry to hear you are too warm. Too warm is good here but not there, I agree.

Like your view from the office. My view is either through the door at a wall or looking out window to utility plant, pump motors, piping, tanks.
Have a great day.

Hey Scott, German caption of this youtube says husband has produced the sound. Guess he's out this night again, lol.

Hi Barbara,

Quite warm today, wasn´t it? No white Christmas for us this year.

The moon is very bright tonight. I can hear the werewolves howling already!
