A collage of pics on this sunny afternoon. From left to right and top to bottom:
my plant corner, a puzzle I'm working on (none to swiftly!), letter G shadow, snowman head
crocheted snowflake, 2 leftovers :), a sun catcher, new bird feeder,
sunshine on silver, cute bird coaster, new teapot and tin of tea, guests for supper.
January up to this point has been fairly quiet. Last week we enjoyed March-like weather with milder temperatures and sunshine. I don't have a lot to post about these days. I did go snowshoeing again on Friday afternoon with 3 dear friends. We took the same Alex Creek Trail that Murray and I took the week before.
The creek is still open and it was pretty with the ice formations along the sides.
On Saturday evening we had 4 friends over for supper. I made a delicious Tomato Corn Chowder from the Mennonite Girls Can Cook and we played a game of Mexican Train Dominoes. Guys against the girls and the guys won - by a great deal. Not a great way to start of the new year but we had fun and we girls will keep trying! It's not like the guys win every time!
We had rain, a warm temperature of 8C, and a southerly wind last night which melted down a lot of snow. Our driveway is now bare again. By 1:00 this afternoon the temperature had dropped to 0C with snow squalls then the sun came out as the wind switched over to the cold north. It's going to be a cold night so I'm grateful for my warm house.
We had some gorgeous sunrises lately.
This morning's was neat to see the sun shining on the city of Fredericton down the river valley then it got cloudy for a few hours.
The Amaryllis bloomed right after Christmas - 4 gorgeous buds all at once!
Thank you for sharing your insight regarding my photo issues with Blogger that I asked about last week. I'll keep working at it.
I've been trying to get around to visit more of you in between doing a bit of cleaning and purging around the house and putting my puzzle together. I finished season 4 of Downton Abbey on Netflix so now I have to wait, who knows how long, for Season 5 then 6 to come on.....some day!!
I guess we're in for some snow Tuesday night into Wednesday and maybe more on the weekend. We need it for snowmobiling, skiing and snowshoeing in our area so bring it on.
Thanks for visiting. I hope you all have a wonderful week.
