View out the back door...poor old lilacs!
There are those who think this is perfect napping weather!

Merry Christmas! I hope your house is filled with warmth, sweet scents, and lots of family and friends. If you are here in the Midwest, you may be sitting alone in your dining room, staring at the mountains of goodies meant for a houseful of guests, and wondering if there's room in the freezer to hold it all until Sunday. I don't know if we've broken records yet, but this is the snowiest Christmas I've seen in Minnesota these past twelve years.
I awoke to the beep-beep-beep of the snowplow backing up(repeatedly), grumbled for about two seconds, and then realized some poor soul was out there on Christmas morning plowing yet more snow, while I lay tucked in and toasty. My gratitude to all of you who work this Holiday! It let up briefly this morning and I got some shots of the wonderland outside my doors.
I had almost decided to drive up to Minneapolis this afternoon, but it started snowing again, with flakes that would have hurt when they hit, had they been any bigger. Seriously, it was practically dropping snowballs by mid-morning! I've decided to stay put and enjoy the muffled quiet of a snowbound day, instead.
So, if you don't have your dear ones crowded around and underfoot, remember you always have them in your heart, where it really matters. You are all in my heart. Stay warm, and travel safe, if you must go out!
