So those of you that have followed here for a while now, already know that I really don't like winter.
It's an unavoidable fact of life though where we live - here in Ontario.
If you follow us on Facebook - you already have seen the snow we received on New Year's Day... a lovely 8 inches! This has been the scene outside my front windows this week.
And here's a look out into the backyard.
I've kept the bird feeders full so the birds won't starve now that it's cold and snowy, but the only really regular visitors have been the squirrels.
Those pesky squirrels have even chewed through some of my strings of lights!
We packed away all the Christmas decorations this week as well.
However, I did create a winter vignette on top of the china cabinet - keeping out some of the faux pine branches and my cardinal plate.
I also left out the pine branches and pine cones in the tool box on the dining room table.
Here's a quick look at the living room now that the decorations are packed away.
It's hard to get a good picture with the glare from the snow coming in the front windows!!
We are in the midst of another big storm today - another 6-8 inches of snow!
Here's hoping the weather is better where you are!
Are you finding your home just a little bare now that the Christmas decorations are packed away?
If so, I'd love to know what you are doing to decorate for winter!!
