Sunday in December

We've had two lots of snow in recent days. I was saying yesterday morning that my body was aching all over and figured I must be coming down with something but then remembered that the day before I had been shoveling snow and realized that was the problem. Just one of the joys of getting older.

It seems that I've been very busy but can't exactly say at what. This morning I tied some spruce branches around the archway coming onto the property and all I need now is a big red bow to hang on the top. I hung two more suet feeders in the trees, that makes five in all. The birds like to fill up on the suet blocks on very cold days. There have been lots of Juncos around along with the regulars. It's mild today...well about +4 C. A lot of the snow has melted off the trees but the ground is still covered.

I'm trying to contain my excitement about Laurie coming for the holidays. It's so close to that time now. As far as having everything ready....it's all done. Just a waiting game now.

A few pictures.

Your snow looks so inviting!! It fluffy and soft the limbs of those fir trees look professionally "powered". I am ready for Christmas to Happen--and then the clean up begins!! Im looking forward to having family come in!

I'm going to ban getting older...to avoid the nuisance aches and pains lol So exciting with Laurie's visit getting nearer....

Your garden looks so pretty with all the snow - definitely a winter wonderland (but then I don't have to shovel the snow).
