White (for) Christmas

The white stuff officially arrived yesterday to bless those folks who think a white Christmas is worth having. I'll take a green Yuletide over the white variety every time because a lack of snow doesn't need to be shoveled nor blown. I'll admit that snow has the potential to look pretty like here on the deck planter...


...but on the street, pretty it ain't!


And when snow on the ground means that I'm grounded from riding, Bah Humbug!


The construction stuff you see beside the covered scooter? They started putting a new roof on the house last week. It's half done and here's hoping those tarps up there stay put before the next round of 2 - 4 inches arrives overnight and tomorrow.

There's some silver lining behind a snow day, however, and that would be the girls being home and baking Christmas cookies. Even better is when I get the first samples from the oven!


I don't know, with the hustle and bustle, if I'll be back here before the big day to post a Christmas wish, so if I don't here's wishing everyone who reads these words a very merry and blessed Christmas. Even if you don't celebrate the day itself, I hope something about the magic of the season will touch your heart in in a special way.

Those cookies look awesome! Enjoy the snow - we have about 8 inches at our place, so if you get bored looking at yours, come on over to my blog to see mine!

Here in Oregon the snow just keeps coming. This morning I woke up to find everything now has a glazed look to it. Guess we had a little freezing rain last night...sigh. First time I have visited your blog and I could almost smell those cookies. I'll be back

Bah, how can you not like the snow? :)

I love the pic of the planter with the snow on top. Unfortunately, we don't have nearly that much snow here in Lancaster PA.

My wife has been baking cookies, lots and lots of cookies. Those look like chocolate chip. They are the best cookies in the world!

In case I don't get another chance before the 25th, Merry Christmas to you!
