All dressed up for Christmas, bring on the snow!
With the recent substantial snowfalls, our home and property is ready to celebrate a White Christmas. And when I awoke this morning, I found that yesterday’s wind and warm temperatures had sculpted the snow into an artful scalloped edge that neatly framed each Christmas bulb.
I have refused to relinquish my old school Christmas lights because they supply a brightness and sparkle like no others can match.
Even as dawn was breaking, the string of lights provided a warm glow.
Like sweet frosting dripping from the eaves of a gingerbread house, Mother Nature had draped the eaves in graceful loops worthy of any Christmas confection. I dashed outside this morning to capture the fanciful frill before it melted away.
A snowfall earlier in the week had banished the dull browns and greys from our spent garden in the backyard, and today’s cold temperature offered encouragement that indeed the snow might stick with us until the New Year.
It was that snowstorm that had me rolling oversized snowballs to build a snowman, this two days after getting home from sunny New Zealand.
Talk about a welcome home that helped to put us in the Christmas spirit.
Now, all we have to do is wait for Santa Claus to come down the chimney.
In the meantime, Frosty and I wish you a Merry Christmas!
