Christmas Is Coming!

I love all my decorations and everything about Christmas! Okay - maybe not the frenzied shopping and trying to wrap everything on time! But I do love the look of Christmas. So do my cats! Here's Mooky getting into a bag for the nth time! My home made trifle made with pistachio pudding to make it more festive! I have fun decorating the old pump organ in a theme of angels and reindeer. We have outdoor lights on our arbour and around 5:10 p.m., this is what it looks like. I love the look of tranquility they give at that silent time of day when life is winding down for the evening.....

Hope you are enjoying thie festivities of the season, whatever they are for you. Take (or is that make?) time to paise and reflect on the beauty of the time.

Winter Seems to Be Here!

We've had our first snow and my husband has already been cross-country skiing 4 I guess that means winter has arrived!! BRRR! This morning it's -17C with the wind chill! Yes, now we talk about temperatures in wind chill terms...another sign that the season has turned over from fall to winter. Christmas lights are up outside and a few of our halls are decked. It's definitely coming soon. Shopping is almost done!! Office brunch is happening this Sunday. My 2 choir concerts are also here! Time is clipping along and I'm trying not to get stressed. How about you?

This frigid day calls for chile!
