Storm brewing up! I was outside just at dawn and could here the wind high up brewing up a storm. Now the snow has started to fall and at times it's swirling around in the wind. I find it very energizing when this happens. To stand out with the force of nature all around, puts a big smile on my face.
Last night we had a few friends here for a Yule celebration. The first friends came through the door, put gifts on the table, then said "We'll be back in a few minutes." and went outside again. After what seemed like a long time, we were wondering what was going on. They came back in and said "You have to come outside and look, we have a surprise for you." Putting boots on I stepped out. They had made Ice Candles and had them lining the pathway up to the house all lit up. I was so overwhelmed, it was absolutely magical. What fantastic friends to do this. I took a picture of them on the pathway but the picture didn't do them justice. I did get a close up of one, they were about a foot high.
I was out before daylight to put them away, hoping they will last until xmas eve when I can set them along the pathway once again.
