Sunrise on Friday morning.
I told you I'd be back if we got some snow didn't I? ;)
We had our first snowstorm of the season on Thursday night and woke up to a winter wonderland on Friday. It was calm on Friday so the snow stayed on the branches and trees all day making it a photographer's paradise. I didn't go far as the roads were pretty snow packed so I took a little walk around the yard and along the road to get some pictures.
We have new neighbours on one side of us as of Saturday. On Friday I snuck over to their yard after they 'closed' on the house and left (we had met them a few minutes before they left) to take a photo of the fence and the deer track through their yard. Isn't it pretty?
It had rained for 2 days here before the cold front brought the snow in so the snow was wet and heavy at first. Boughs and trees bent under the weight and thousands were without power due to trees on power lines, yet again. The power utility in New Brunswick cut back trees all summer after the disastrous damage and power outages of the last few winter storms but I guess they have a lot more to do. Some are still without power!
I'm hoping these lumps of grass all over this fields aren't ant hills!!
My favourite lane down in the field. There were lots of deer tracks in there.
This is our road. The plough went up the road early in the morning but didn't come down it until later.
Our little corner cedar fence looks pretty with the fluffy bows I made last year and the snow on them.
A beautiful natural wreath I bought with fresh snow.
Remember my dilemma of small tree vs. big tree this year? Well the big tree won out....again. I fought with the lights for 3 days, bought more, the new ones had several burnt out and one string keeps going off completely (nothing a little shake won't fix). What a frustration! Any who....it's up, lit and decorated and I'm enjoying it. I went to town and got some shopping done and the wrapping will begin as I have a couple parcels to mail asap. I dread the cost of mailing them. Postage rates here are atrocious.
Murray was away all weekend in Yarmouth, NS playing keyboard in the band for a local contemporary gospel group The LaPointes. They are on the ferry crossing the Bay of Fundy as I type. I hope it is as smooth a crossing as it was going over. I spent some time with a friend yesterday and helped her decorate her new fireplace mantel then we went to the local diner for supper and back to her house to watch a Christmas movie. After church today 2 friends and I went out to lunch. I went to Walmart after and stocked up on chocolate and candy for the holidays. (I hope they last until Christmas!) Sometimes it's nice to be able to do these things (right ladies??). :)
Today it was so warm and sunny it felt like spring. The snow melted down a lot. The week ahead looks pretty nice with temperatures above freezing every day.
I hope you all are doing well and had a great week last week.
And I wish you a blessed week ahead.
I have more photos to share so will be back in a few days, hopefully. Take care my friends.
