January brings the snow,
Makes our feet and fingers glow.

Happy New Year!

The days seem to have flown by since Christmas and it has been a week since I last posted. I hope that everyone enjoyed the festive season. We had a green Christmas, but as the nursery rhyme says, January brings the snow.... and it certainly has.

Actually, we don't have much snow, but we have been contending with extremely cold temperatures with wind-chills in the minus 20 C range. Even the shortest of walks has proved to be a test of endurance.

This lunchtime saw the temperature hovering around -7 C with only a -14 C wind-chill. Positively balmy really! So I took the opportunity to go for a short walk.

The last of the berries not discovered by the birds. If the snow remains on the ground for long, I am sure that these will soon be gone.

Heading back home to the warm for a welcome cup of tea.

Wishing you all health and happiness in 2010.
