A cold beauty

There is nothing in the world more beautiful than the forest
clothed to its very hollows in snow.
It is the still ecstasy of nature, wherein every spray,
every blade of grass, every spire of reed,
every intricacy of twig, is clad with radiance.

It seems, as the cold weather is here to stay. It is -22°C today (-8°F) so we stay as close to the fire as we can — which is nice — and hope we won't run out of wood.
Today I need to tidy up — I don't understand how a house can get messy when you're sitting in your recliner reading most of the time. Gnomes?We'll keep the tree for another week so it needs new candles. I'm glad that my darling isn't very interested in the tree, he hides under it sometimes and we always are careful to keep an eye on him when we light the candles.

  1. We have been told that tonight the temp. will drop to -3C in Devon (England). Soon it will be as cold as where you are!

  2. I hope you don't get much colder, -3°C can be quite pleasant - but I find -20°C and below far too cold.

  3. We share the cold temperatures...but it is winter ;-) !! Greetings from a very frosty and again snow covered garden,
