It is truly, stunningly beautiful to look at....but I am getting a bit tired of the shovelling, frozen hoses, and slippery walkways. We are expecting another 10-20 cm tonight.....I guess we'll just hunker down again, turn on the Christmas tunes and snuggle. However, Winter Solstice was a magical day for us. We made a cake that was complete with a snow scene of our family (Liv, Briar, Me, Jeff with a toothpick beard, Robo, Freckles, Moe, a turkey, and two chickens...we got a bit tired of making chickens....) made out of marshmallows.
We went for a walk in our snow covered neighbourhood. It's interesting to see how the local wildlife are dealing with the cold. I can now identify with the song that goes, "It's a marshmallow world in the Winter..." It truly looks like someone had a candy making accident. We finished off the day with a candlelit dinner of chili and cake and then off to bed to read their solstice gift of a book called 'Jack Frost'.
