After The Storm

after the storm .. our front yard
Had a wild snow storm roll through yesterday .. in the midst the kids decided to blaze a sledding trail in the front yard.  Today was picture perfect .. with a cherry on top :) 

Waiting to ring in the new year tomorrow night at home.  It's cold .. and the best place is inside by the stove.  Christmas has come and gone .. and it's almost time to put the decorations away for another year.  Today was spent getting up early to make homemade cinnamon rolls to enjoy with friends, sledding, taking care of car maintenance, and fixing a nice pot roast dinner for my family.   Nothing profound .. simple everyday life .. ebb and flow stuff.  Still resting up from last summer's garden and enjoying the produce put away for winter.  My life speaks volumes of 'homebody' .. and that suits me just fine. 

I hope to get back to blogging more regularly once the new year rolls around.  Been hit or miss of late with Christmas and company.  Enjoy New Year's Eve .. be safe.
sledding .. oh what fun

Dear Mrs. Mac,
You are living so very Nordic.
To me your winter garden seems like the paradise of my childhood.
Slide riding, oh what fun for young and old.
I wish the Mac family a happy New Year with more blessings and peace coming like a good flow.

Dear Mrs. Mac ~ What a winter wonderland where you are. It is supposed to reach 80 here today. Sledding looks like fun, and staying home by the fire with family and a good dinner sounds perfect. I am a homebody also, as much as I can be. There's no place like home.

Have a wonderful 2011.

Absolutely beautiful!! We still
have some of our 9 1/2 inches
on the ground here. It began
on Christmas morning--perfect!
I love a beautiful snowfall
and sitting by the fire.
Nothing like it.
Happy New Year!
