In the Bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan, Earth stood hard as iron., water like a stone; Snow had fallen snow on snow, snow on snow, In the Bleak Midwinter, long long ago.
My favourite verse describing winter. We have been bamboozled with snow – close to six inches have fallen in the past twenty four hours with more to come – a sign that perhaps we are returning to the ‘traditional Canadian winters’ of years gone by? Fingers crossed! Spent an enjoyable evening putting up the tree – another Abies concolor – and assisting with the decorating. I love the citrus infused aroma that pervades the air while it is up.
I snagged an assortment of wonderful glass ornaments at work, in silver, white and of course, my personal favourite, blue in order to create an icy, shimmering effect. Combined with the newest lights – tiny clear nubs that are barely visible to the naked eye – it creates a most interesting aura when the house lights are off. Come to think of it, a glass or four of nog might also offer a different view as well!
