A Happy New Year… From Narnia!

After days on end of snow, icy winds and grey skies, I could barely believe it when I pulled upΒ the shutters this morning: 2015 got off to a dazzling start.

Not my handiwork, but perfect for a New Year's Day pic :)

A walk in the woods was in order, to test out my new boots. Although snow shoes might have been a better choice. I had some fun with the camera, trying to catch the sunlight peeking through the trees.

Still with me? Let’s finish off with a nice brekkie πŸ™‚

      My mum certainly got a good workout… she’s got a bit of a cleaning compulsion and can’t pass a tree without shaking the snow off the lower branches. She got some of it down her neck, which she didn’t enjoy, lol.

        Some things you can’t get in photos, like the feel of the cold in your nostrils, and the smell of the snow. I’ve always liked winter, I just haven’t had a proper one in several years.

    I was enjoying the photos in the woods – a lot …. but then I started thinking, “Where’s the FOOD?” πŸ™‚ You did not disappoint. I am so happy to be able to coast behind on the joy you coax out of every situation. Hug hug hug.

    The photos of your last four posts are amazing (yes, they do include the cookies). Quite remarkably, I got to see the snow in the California desert this year. We are still freezing our asses off but I suppose it made for a more European Christmas. Happy New Year!

    happy new year!

    Simone, you have such a lovely photographic eye. I’m quite envious.

        Last night we got another 2.9″ to bring us to an all-time record of 109.something, or nearly nine feet of snow.

        We were only forecast to get a half-inch, so they didn’t salt the roads, which resulted in a somewhat crazy drive back from the store last night. Fortunately, no mishaps.

        Actually, a fair bit has melted in the last two weeks, the couple inches last night notwithstanding. And the house has a tallish foundation, so it’s well off the ground, more so in the front than the back.

        But a couple of weeks ago, I did dig a trench behind the house to keep the snow from touching the foundation as I didn’t want water damage or water in the basement. Initially the trench looked rather dramatic, but it has now melted enough that it doesn’t look so severe any more. Saludos. K
