Wordful Wednesday-Christmas Eve already?

*Wordful Wednesday is for those of us that like to showcase a photo but that just can’t seem keep our mouths shut about it. If you’d like to play along, post a photo on your blog, and let the words roll. Feel free to “capture” my 7 Clown Circus button on the left to link back to me, and be sure to add yourself to Mr. Linky. Thanks for playing along!

Bet you thought that you were actually going to get some Christmas photos, right? That’s the thing though………I’ve been so busy preparing for Christmas that I can’t be bothered actually downloading and selecting a picture for this week. I will next week though…..next week…..:)

Now, some of you are probably scratching your head if you are here on Tuesday the 23rd. Many have figured out that I publish my Wordful Wednesday posts on Tuesdays at 5pm Pacific time. It has worked out well for many who want to link up before they go to bed and live on the East Coast. I will continue to publish on Tuesdays, except for one week in January when I’ve promised a great bloggy pal to wait until Wednesday. Any preferences on which Wednesday in January this should be?

This weeks Wordful Wednesday is yet another installment of Halcomb Photography shots. What can I say? I love ’em and since I can’t show you all 300, I’ve just been picking some of my favorites. Like these:
