Happy Holidays!

The illustration above is not far off the mark for weather conditions in my hometown.  Friday's snowstorm brought another six inches of the white stuff requiring two trips out to shovel snow on Friday and one more trip out to clear the driveway Saturday morning.  On top of the six or so inches already on the ground, Friday evening's snow will assure we all enjoy a white Christmas.

With holiday activities planned for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and my baking task completed, my Christmas List includes a brief respite this morning in the solitude of the painting desk.  That is, after I put in the required roadwork on the indoor bike!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

    1. Ed! For those of us living in the northern regions of the USA, nothing better than a white Christmas (provided we don't have to travel too far).
      Happy Holidays!

  7. Have a wonderful Christmas, Jonathan. A snow flurry this AM, followed by freezing rain (ugh!), then rain, then sunshine. Enough snow left on the ground from last weekend's storm for scenic effect, though!

    1. Looks like another storm is on the way and we will be digging out once again. We should plan a game of "Hold the Line" that you gifted to me. Looks quick and easy.

  10. Just to be different from all the other comments here Jonathan, we are basking in 35 (C) degree temperatures in a tropical Pacific Island, beside (and in) a glorious pool with a team of waiters delivering refreshments to us at regular intervals. No a snowflake in sight! Merry Christmas and a happy and safe New Year to you and your family
