Friday morning I awoke to this gorgeous sunrise.
When I checked my Facebook I noticed a friend posted her photo of the same sunrise. I then posted mine and shortly after 3 other friends posted their photos. It was an interesting perspective to see the different views of this gorgeous sunrise all within several kilometres of each other.
The day was sunny with clouds but the wind finally had ceased after blowing all week long. I went to town and did a bit of Christmas shopping. I found a lot of great sales going on as if it was 'Black Friday' or something. Yes, we have Black Friday here now. I think it's next Friday though. The merchants are trying to keep the shoppers on this side of the border. :)
We went out for supper last night at The Diplomat, a popular Chinese/Canadian restaurant in Fredericton. It's always busy there and we don't go very often and last night it was so busy. There wasn't any parking as the hotel next to it had an event going on as well. Murray had to park on a side street. We met up with friends and joined them for supper. I had the No. 1 Chinese combo…. I ate half of it….way too much food.
A robin visited our yard on Thursday. Apparently there are many staying around this year as several friends have seen them.
This morning we woke up to our first snowfall.
Always pretty and magical.
It snowed for a couple of hours but melted in the above freezing temperatures. It'll be all melted later.
This is already melted. It was pretty while it lasted.
So, since we didn't get the outside Christmas lights up last weekend when it was 10 degrees Celsius we have to do it today….when it's 2 degrees and windy (very windy again!).
We dug out the Christmas tree and decorations from under the stairs a few minutes ago. I may tackle that later today. I'm doing something different this year with burlap garland. We'll see how that goes.
We also dug out some of the old vintage and antique dishes that I store there. I think I'm going to sell them. They are in boxes all the time and I have no place to display them. If I don't sell them I'll donate them to Kings Landing Historical Settlement. They need to be in a safe place where they might be seen and appreciated. (I'm not an ebay person as packaging and the cost of mailing is not worth it) I hate to part with them but someday they will be gotten rid of by our kids. We just can't keep everything. What would you do with them?
Well, that's what we're up to today.
Thanks for visiting and I'd like to welcome my new followers this week. I appreciate each one of you. Have a wonderful weekend!
