Warmer... But Not Much!

It's positively balmy this morning -- it's only -20C. Haha! The skies look heavy with snow and methinks the sun has hied off to Hawaii today... no sign of Mr. Sunshine at present.

Even so, I begin turning my thoughts with eager anticipation towards preparing for the holidays. My list today includes gathering my ingredients for some Christmas baking. And, I want to put up the Christmas tree. We're a lot later at putting it up than most years -- but I have had my fig tree in the living room festooned with tiny white lights for weeks, so we haven't been totally bereft of cheery lights and cozy ambiance.

I just looked out my window. Snow crystals are forming and falling, so I may need to add shoveling to that to-do list. If you've followed this blog for a while, you may recall that I actually prefer snow shoveling to lawn mowing, so I won't mind bundling up for a brisk workout on the driveways!

Wishing you happy thoughts today.


  1. We woke up to rain and heavy snow!! I'm not a fan of winter!

  2. you certainly remained optimistic during the winter. You could be a weather reporter on the news...

  3. Sounds like you've got a Courier & Ives week ahead of you. Enjoy!


  4. Well sounds like you are cool and collected. I am letting all the hurry, hurry get to me and need to settle down and enjoy. It is cold, sleety, windy and I thing a big blizzard coming in. Well it's that time.

  5. So how deep is your snow?
    Yup, baking time. When it snows, I love to bake. Something about the sights and smells.
    I prefer to stay indoors. I'd be your neighbor watching you shovel.

  6. I like all of the pictures you share on your posts, especially this one. Hope you stay warm today.
