Waddle waddle in the snow. We finally got a little snow yesterday. It’s supposed to snow more within 48 hours according to the weather news.
It’s pretty when the snow sticks to the trees. I like how people put white lights on trees. You can leave the lights up year round and they just sparkle like star light.
The shooting star Christmas lights have the wow factor in my opinion. They are a Martha Stewart project that she has the directions to make them on her website. She just uses a star shape from a craft shop and attaches lights. So neat.
What a neat idea for Christmas lights.
New snow is pretty if you don’t have to be on the roads. The town I live in is all hills. Very steep hills and you really need 4-wheel drive. I just have a very light Prius that goes into anti-lock breaks and slips and slides if I have to go up a slippery hill. Oh, the times that I have had.
How cozy does the above little reading nook look? That’s a pond outside and that blogger’s husband and son built her that awesome cottage on their land in Nova Scotia. She has all kinds of beautiful gardens there in the summer. I just like that style.
I love a picket fence. It’s even beautiful in the winter.
I love old fashion traditions like steam pudding. I used to have a special mold that was just for steam pudding but it got lost in the shuffle somewhere.
Then the old fashion yule log is such a nice tradition. I love stuff like that.
And then little mincemeat pies. So good with vanilla ice cream.
Remember when fondue was all the rage. I still like it.
And then Kir Royals that are so bubbly.
I like those paper snowflakes. I made some with my grandsons a few days ago and they just turn out so cute.
My latest class that I took on Craftsy was a King Arthur Flour course with Jeff Yankellow who is an award winning baker. I just loved that class. So many tips and techniques plus recipes that can be printed out.
I loved seeing how he made the yeast rolls like my Gram used to make and bring to gatherings.
And then his Cinnamon Rolls that he made with his whole wheat dough that are tasty as well as more healthy. What a nice tradition to make them for Christmas morning. He gave a nice tip on how not to be afraid to try things and if they don’t come out the first time to take notes and figure out what needs to be adjusted.
