I'm always happy to pull out my cozy moose mittens. I bought these in
Whitehorse Canada many years ago. They are definitely the warmest mittens
I own and I am very grateful for them when I go for walks in the winter months.
As I headed down our driveway I walked past these wonderful alder pine cones.
They are only about a half inch in length. They would make great
miniature Christmas decorations for a little doll house.
We had a light dusting of snow last night. These twisted roots
are dusted with snow, but the ground
underneath was left clean of snow.
The days are very short right now, and darkness approaches
early in the afternoon around four o'clock.
When I'm out on my walks I always look for spots of color.
I came across this beautiful birch tree. I love
the color and textures on this tree!!
The lake is now completely frozen, but I could
hear the water hitting the ice.
Every once in awhile I could also hear really loud bangs as the
ice contracts and expands.
High above the lake shore were beautiful icicle formations.
Everything has a light dusting of snow, even the lichen on the trees.
It's a overcast day, but still beautiful.
On my way back to the house, I stopped at one of
my favorite benches. This bench belongs to a neighbor.
I love the color of this bench, I think its beautiful!!!
It's a very worn bench with lots of lichen growing on it and
it has the color I'm craving during these long dark winter days.
It's great to get back to a warm house where I can dream of summer roses and get
back to the holiday cookies.
