Fire and Snow December 22, 2008

As we continue to get more snow (and I’ll admit that I’m starting to think that enough is enough)- I am very grateful for being warm and having plently of food and not needing to travel out onto the dangerous roads.


We had a nice Winter Solstice. We made Santa Lucia buns on Saturday and our oldest daughter brought them to us on Sunday morning. We had a yummy dinner: pasta with chanterelle mushrooms (collected pre-snow by hubby) and meatballs in a cream sauce. After dinner, we went out and dug out the fire pit. Fire light on the snow is enchanting. I was asleep by 9:30- a fox in her den.

    Sounds like such a lovely day! Your St. Lucia buns looks so yummy!! I’d take some snow right about now – it’s just bitterly cold (in the single digits) and what good is that without snow??

    Wow, that image of the fire in the snow is just magical. The buns look delicious also! So glad you had a great Solstice!

    Ahhh a fire pit. After much work we got the fire going in the fireplace… but it is not the same. I miss the fire pit.
    I am so loving the snow here. 🙂 but maybe after 2 more months, not so much. LOL

    Jumbleberry~ do you have snow now? We’re really hoping for a slow melt!

    Thank you, Rachel! The fire with the snow was so lovely- my second favorite thing after the sledding.

    Heather~ man, I’m tired of the snow after two weeks! Good luck!
