Merry Christmas!

My apologies for not posting lately. No excuses. Just needed a break. Our cold spell has passed and we're back to normal moderate weather.

We went out to a Christmas Eve service at a church where nobody knew us and it was enjoyable. I've been in charge of Christmas Eve services every year for the past 30 or so years, so it was a nice break.

Tomorrow we'll have a family gathering here with a gift exchange and a ham dinner. It should be fun and I'm looking forward to it. Our youngest granddaughter won't be with us but here's a picture of her with her dad at Thanksgiving.
...and that's Ladybug trying not to get her picture taken in the middle!
I wish all of you a wonderful and joyful Christmas!

An Early Winter

Wow, has this been an early winter to beat all!  In an average winter we get night time temperatures down into the upper 20s to lower 30s F. And we might even get a dusting of snow. There have been winters where we didn't even get a serious hard frost. Not this year. So far we've broken four night time records for low temperatures and it looks like we'll do so for the next couple of nights at least. We even got a little snow to go with it today. This is way out of the ordinary.

No pictures right now. I've been too busy keeping warm...
