Winter footsteps in Surrey
Mr. H asked me what I did today.
I recounted my day simply.
I spent a few hours at the hair salon
and an equal amount of time
driving in a snow storm.
I felt frustrated...
I wanted to do so much more.
As I was looking over my photos tonight,
I retraced my footsteps and
remembered a few other things...
I had a glance at the beautiful Christmas
displays at a local flower shop
and had a wander around our backyard to see
what the evening snow brought us.
I noticed Mr. H's footsteps in the snow
from his morning walk to the train station,
spied the holly that I will be cutting
when the snow melts
and made a note to empty my pots.
I passed this yummy bakery on the way to the hair salon...
and while waiting for my daughter at the end of the day
I had a wander around her school..
I always admire this window and it's many window panes.
This little garden reminds me of Alice in Wonderland.
When I returned home, daughter #1,
Miss Christine, was putting the finishing touches
on her first Beef Bourguignon...Julia style.
I always take it as a good sign when a recipe
is well marked. It was delicious.
and lastly, tonight,
I managed to put up the Christmas lights
on our two trees. One in the living room
and the other in the family room.
Yes...I ended up with two.
A Nordmann Fir (R)
and old faithful, our artificial tree (L).
we add the decorations.
When all was done,
I treated myself.
I decided to write to you
and then have a little of this..
I am still plugging away
and having fun.
