Cuppa and I are sitting by our respective computers this morning after enjoying a wee bit of a lie-in. This is the second consecutive morning of sleeping-in after the enjoyable but tiring busy-ness of Christmas.
We spent Christmas Eve with the kids and slept over and didn’t come back home until the next night as tired little grandparents. Last evening we were back over there for leftover turkey and fixins (yum) and a viewing of Scrooge, so we were a little late to bed once again. Therefore, the lazy mornings are quite appreciated.
Most congenially, it snowed all of Christmas Day: a steady but most light and delightful of snowfalls. Along with the mildish temperatures, I couldn’t resist staying out long enough to shovel the driveway once we got home. Sometimes, shovelling is an onerous chore, but at other times, it is most enjoyable activity, and this time it was the latter.
Come Boxing Day, the 26th, we managed to resist the mayhem and madness of commercialism (it wasn’t a difficult choice) for a short drive after lunch. Although melting conditions had resulted in the loss of some snow, especially off the trees, we managed to find a few suitable scenes to photograph (below).
Perhaps I’ll manage to post a few family pics of the usual Christmas proceedings in days to come.
