This is not a picture of the snow at my house (thank God). This is on my dad’s property in Wisconsin.
The header photo is also from my dad’s place. Both pictures are screenshots from videos he sent, so they may be a little blurry. It was his first snow for this season, and it happened about a week ago.
We’re only 84 miles south of him and we haven’t gotten any. I’m careful what I wish for….so….only a few flurries with a dusting would be nice for Christmas.
I’ve not been keeping up regularly with the blogging world. If I’m being honest, I don’t know how to pretend to be perky when there is much on my mind about the world’s affairs.
As I posted before, I’m grateful for all the simple things in life, but aside from the usual Christmas movie watching, baking cookies, and gift wrapping, there isn’t much else going on. Well . . . aside from those world affairs.Back to some peaceful scenery at Dad’s place – I think the deer took a break from pulling a certain sleigh for a bite to eat from the tree.
Last year, well, every year we usually go into the city for the ChristKindl Market (pronounced, Krist-Kindle). No, it’s not a store for the Amazon Kindle reader. It’s a cozy, outdoor German Christmas festival. It’s always packed with bundled bodies carrying hot chocolate from the stores. Very sad for the vendors this year.
I’ll likely not be around the blogging world through the holidays, so I wish everyone a Magical Christmas. May the coming year bring much better times and good health for everyone.
To add a little color after all that white stuff in the other photos, I’ll end with hand painted ornaments from the ChristKindl Market.
