Nothing green around here just the pine tree and snow on them.

Coffee is on.

There certainly is nothing blooming around here. Currently we are covered by a blanket snow as is the rest of North America. Like you our temperatures are -5 to -18 in my area....other areas are as cold as -35 C with a wind chill factor....yes winter is upon us.

I am here via Peppylady and the calendar exchange I just got notification this morning that you are my exchange partner....I will endeavour to get a calendar in the mail to you with in the week...which hopefully will get to you for the beginning of January.

All the very best to you!

Cheers and Merry Christmas from Qualicum Bay British Columbia Canada!

Yes, we are buried in snow as well (which is unusual for here). It is novel for a few days, and then increasingly inconvenient as it makes any sort of driving an experiement in tractionless locomotion.

After the 25th, I will be thinking warm and springish thoughts!

Gerritnow, cheers!
Dora, your scenery looks lovely, lots of snow, we've just got wet yuck here!
GF, I was just thinking of those seed catalogues, plans to be made!
Mary Ann, thanks for dropping in, the calendar swap is a lovely idea, merry christmas to you too!!
Tara, no, driving in snow is not fun, you keep safe!!

i wish i could exchange places with you even for a day. we don't have snow here. honestly, i haven't seen real snow ever in my life. poor me... =D

i'm excited to get the calendar on january. i told dora that she should be getting hers on january too because here it's holiday starting tom (dec 25) until jan 4 including saturdays and sundays. we have the longest christmas celebration in the world. we start putting up our christmas tree and other ornaments on september 1 and put it down around mid january. but i put mine up after my birthday on oct 14 then put it back in the box by jan 1.

merry christmas!

I too am SO happy that the days are now getting longer. That always helps, though the last 6 weeks or so of winter can sometimes feel like a few months.

I love that sun flower!!
