It's a bit like this old card at my house today. Snow is falling and I, like the cricket, didn't finish my fall work, like plant the bulbs I bought a few weeks ago. Be that as it may, it's Christmas!
The birds are busy at the feeders, enjoying the new seed cakes and posing for photos.
The dogs were sure they needed to come inside, despite having spent the night in my toasty warm workroom,
so in they came. If I don't have a rug by the stove for them, they sit and stare at me pointedly until I fetch one. Apparently I am well trained.
It's very quiet on the hill today, as seems to happen with snowfall of even a small amount. The world is hushed and still. Last night the wind howled as if to blow us all to the North Pole, but today it has laid down. Surprisingly all my porch decorations stayed in place.
So now I am off to read a new book, play some carols (which I am not tired of, since we don't have TV and don't go to many stores), and enjoy the fire and the dogs.
Hoping all of my friends out there are warm, full, content and full of joy on this day.
