A White Christmas

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.

    Happy to hear you had a white Christmas, AC! Hope you and Cuppa have a few more days of relaxing in store. These pictures are beautiful.

    …is New Years at the farm in the forecast? Ben and I will be there. It would be so lovely to see you.

    Your photos are absolutely gorgeous, so glad you had a white Christmas. It was quite mild here but one of my best Christmas days in several years. I packed my camera and unpacked it when I came home. I wanted pictures but was so busy (in a good way)
    ………..:-)Hugs

  5. AC, your white Christmas may have been short-lived, but wonderful nevertheless. We were only dreaming of one here. Today has been a blowing, steady rain that if it were snow would have been a blizzard.

    Your last three posts have been so enjoyable. One of the things in which I shamefully took joy is that one of your pictures is “broken” in your most recent post. That just doesn’t happen to AC. If I choose to have resolutions this year, one of them will be to be more gracious.

    Very pretty, AC. We got a dusting this evening. I wonder if it will last.

    Really beautiful pictures of inspiring scenery. I’m hoping to see pictures of your grandchildren on Christmas. The dance practice pbotos were totally enjoyable. That little girl does seem to love life, doesn’t she?

    With your permission, may we use the top photo (fence, snow) for a reference photo for a painting? Although my husband is busy painting sail boats on Lake Erie and summer scenes for his summer shows, he likes to do a winter scene for our Christmas card.
