I am SICK of this Winter already! Just ice and snow, and when it's not doing that, it's snow and ice! Another day of hoping you don't fall and break a leg or a head, and I am so tired of shoveling. A little bit here, a little bit there, -- do the weathermen ever get it right? One minute it's a small "clipper system" that's coming through with only an inch or two, the next minute, they've changed their minds, and it's a full-blown ice-storm!

What the heck! Don't they have a window!?

Oh well, have a cup of tea I say...thank you, I think I will!

So this was Christmas .. .

There it goes. . . .say goodbye until next November. All I have now are the boxes in the garage which I finally managed to pack away with the last two trees and all their decorations, over the weekend. This year I put up Christmas decorations the week before Thanksgiving, since last year I had none of my stuff where we were living, but that horror is over and life goes on.
Gifts all under the tree and we really had a wonderful day! Rob & Lisa, Steph & Mike, and we went to Milford later on for dinner. All of December was special; each day coming closer, taking notice of the weeks of Advent as they slipped away, so quickly, amidst all the busy-ness that surrounds us.

Wednesday last we had an ice storm. It made the outdoors look just a jewel-box and best of all, the power stayed ON! You have no idea what a big deal that is here in Pike County PA. Once the electric goes out, you can't use the toilet because it's connected to the well, and there is no water either as that is well water driven. Our heat is electric, so we are truly up the creek with seemingly no boat, never mind the paddle.

Trying to walk Piper has been a challenge not to fall on an arm or a leg or a face! Slowly I dug out the entire driveway and then on Saturday we got another 5 inches of snow, and the ice is still shining through. But, it is Winter, and in its own way it is very pretty. Funny how only the winds howl, but the rest of nature is silent.

These are white birch trees down at the end of the road across from the mailboxes. Just bent over, and still that way today, yet, not broken, only resting quietly and waiting for a more gentle day.

Just a little reminder . . .

"I'm fixing a hole where the rain gets in . . and stops my mind from wandering . . . ."
Remember that? Just came to me; I love little reveries like that.
But this is an official reminder to myself, that in the next few days I am posting all Christmas pictures and memories from a Season which is fast disappearing! It's still the Christmas season by the Church calendar; and I'll go by that, because it is, and because I hate to see it all go away.
For now, I'm knitting the day away.
