Christmas is rapidly approaching, and here is the tree all decorated and with presents waiting... I must say I'm looking forward to the short break I will have from work. I work up to and including Christmas Eve, and after the year I've had I'm quite looking forward to a couple of days break to unwind and relax.
After the snow on Saturday, I didn't think anymore about it until I had to drive to work this morning. To say the landscape was breathtakingly beautiful would be an understatement - I was left in awe of the avenues of trees, bushes and shrubs which were in a palette of greys, silvers and whites. It was truly amazing to behold and I was very disappointed that I had no time to pull over and walk around and take photos of the beautiful surroundings. I must say that the snow in the town where I work was far heavier than what was experienced at home, so it was a stressful and slow drive in to work. Better safe than sorry I say.
The poor little creatures are definitely hungry and out and about looking for food. The bird feeder is a non-stop hive of activity. The squirrel was visiting and enjoying the food left out for him too.
My brother and his wife are expecting their first baby, due in March 2011. They are expecting a girl and I find myself constantly buying more and more pretty clothes and cute little things for her. My brother has a blog with the name of bumpy cat and for some reason, we've started referring to baby as bumpy kitten. So of course, I couldn't resist buying this little outfit when I saw it.
Hope you're all keeping warm and safe wherever you are in the world.
