It is Bitterly Cold Now


Well .. we have our bitterly cold winter temps here now , with the wind chills it has been feeling like – 25C  BRR ! and that has kept us in for the most part , as well as being busy as it is that time of year  and I have been a bit under the weather to  . I cant believe Christmas is so close already .

The birds have been feasting at the feeders in the snow squalls we have been having and today we had a nice clear blue sky and sunshine whilst everyone north of us had been in a winter storm and all were closed and canceled , yeah know it is bad weather when snow plows are pulled off the roads .

I took these photos from inside the kitchen , these feeders are closest to the house , the others are across the yard in the back by our crab apple tree  and all are full of hungry birdies  and critters in the back .

Miggs keeps trying to go out and stay out in the sun but the temps and winds are just to cold so she wonders back to the house and barks to come in .

                    Just to cold out there for her now that she is getting older , I can relate to that  for sure lol !

We have a bit of Christmas shopping to do tomorrow as Papa is taking the day off and this weekend we are expecting a big snow storm , so we shall stock up and get all things we need done tomorrow and then by the weekend  we will be cozy inside with the wood stove going and watching movies I expect lol !

Well other then this things have been pretty quiet here , over the Christmas holidays Papa will be tearing the mudroom/laundry room apart and re vamping it with all new walls and storage cupboards and brightening it up , so looking forward to that and hopefully the kids can make it down for a day or two this year again over the holidays  that would be nice to see them .

On a sad note , these past few days  my in laws had to say goodbye to their old dog Shadow  . She was 10 and had bad hips and back legs and Sercombe to them . We will all miss you Shadow and Miggs will miss playing with you and having a visit .

Bitterly cold and windy here too and that storm is heading our way Friday night into Saturday. Sad news about Shadow, you will all miss him. Stay warm and safe.

We'll be getting that storm too. It's very cold today.

Sending healing wishes your way, and hope you feel better real soon.
So sorry to read that Shadow has passed, he will be sadly missed.
Pretty pictures as always, and looks so cold !

Winter has definitely arrived early but that's ok. Maybe it will leave early too. Haha. Sorry for the loss of Shadow. What a sweet pic of the two dogs together. Have a nice weekend!

Yes, it is cold now and we are in Lancaster, PA to celebrate the arrival of a new granddaughter late last week. We read that Nashua, NH, received several inches of snow in our absence. Sorry to read about Shadow, as it's as difficult to lose a pet as it is family and friends. They are all missed.

Sorry for your loss. It is never easy to let go.

Stay warm.

Merry Christmas.
