Dreaming of a White Christmas – Mission Accomplished

A White Christmas is beautiful and quiet

A white Christmas is a sure thing. When we woke up on December  18, one week before Christmas, we received 16 inches of  lovely snow – not too heavy. It took a good part of the day to clear streets and sidewalks. I think we were all glad to return to  our houses where we could sit near our brilliant Christmas trees and enjoy a hot toddy – or a cup of hot cocoa. We watched the old musical “White Christmas” with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye  and enjoyed a perfect evening of delight.

Garden in the winter snow

On December 19 we are enjoying  some sun but chilly temperatures. There is no traipsing out  to  the shed or any tools. When we celebrate white Christmas weather we hope it lasts for days.

Social Distancing seating

We have been sitting out on the gravel ‘patio’  where we could visit in proper social distance seating. The table is now covered with 16 inches of snow. A friend donated a metal cradle to hold a campfire, but our wood was wet and we never got it working properly, but we have hopes, after we dig out some. I don’t think the watchful Krishna has ever seen anything quite like this.

I wonder about other landscapes and will be watching.

Snow in Massachusetts north

Daughter Betsy sent us photos of snowfall in the northern part of the state, shown deep on the patio furniture. In just a few hours it  will officially be winter.

Daughter Kate has a very different readiness for Christmas In Texas.

Merry Christmas to All!
