Happy Winter Solstice!

Look!  It's the first day of Winter and we FINALLY 
have some snow!!!

This was our morning walk this AM - the wind was blowing, the snow was horizontal, but it was snow and that's all that counts in the end.  Huzzah!

Meanwhile, in the house, I finally got an extension cord for the tree and for the first time my tree was lit.  In fact, this is the first tree I have ever had on my own.  The bulk of the tree is still outdoors, where it's providing shelter for the birds (in fact, you can see it leaning against the maple tree in the first photo).

Have a Cool Yule, Everyone!


  1. ah there's nothing like a real tree -- and real snow to go with it ! Have a cozy Christmas !

  2. Ooh, SNOW! I hope some of that is heading our way, although since it's been warm and rainy and the ground is not frozen hard, it probably wouldn't stay. Your tree looks very pretty. Have a wonderful holiday, Ellen.

  3. Happy Solstice to you too! Your tree is very pretty.

  4. That road is perfect for adventure and bike trekking .
