Winter wonderland

We still have lots of winterapples for the blackbirds.

My husband lit the lantern for me,  darkness makes the winterland quite lovely.

We brought the christmastree out and stringed it up with the decorationlights, now it looks really nice.  This snow would have been nice on christmas but hopefully the children will have enough time for some snowracing up on the mountainside,  Stibyberget.

Some magical light and the window could be somewhere in Shire.

Unfortunately we are never prepared for this kind of weather nowadays. So our oldest daughter got caught on the bus and the bus started gliding down the slope and that was not the only one in the ditches. She is alright! But there have been several carcrashes and other accidents.  Here in our parts the wind is the tricky part, the amount of snow is not so bad really, but combined with the wind coming sideways across the fields, the snow will mount up in the most difficult places. I drove through several of those, being a nervous wreck when I got home. I have great difficulties driving in the dark these days, my eyes are not what they used to be.
But the snow is lovely if we just look at it in it's glittering and bright dress. Everything gets brighter and shimmery for a while. Winter can be beautiful.

    1. Thank you! If I wasn't all lazy I could have added quite a few more. Snow is covering everything today, the piles are meter high!!!!

  2. Spring is on the way! Squirrels red as foxes. Ducks with bright feathers dancing on the thawing ponds! A little more light every day.

  3. Thank you, Gwil, that made my day!!!!

  4. I feel for your daughter being on a skidding bus and for the driver too, for there is nothing worse than losing control of a vehicle and not being able to do very much about it. Oh' I know what 'the experts' say steer into a skid, well that does not always work either - I know that from experience.

    1. Yes, so do I. And before I realized she was alright, it was very frightening. There was in fact other accidents with very different outcome.
