The balsam pine didn't break any branches from the weight of the snow but it certainly did bow down. The birch in the background is glowing from the late afternoon sun. We are all fine. We ventured out to deliver a frame job Friday. It was not that safe as the snow was packed and frozen with great textures on different sides of the highways. We drove slowly and returned home as quickly after picking up groceries. The person was getting ready for Christmas and didn't want to pick up her four framed pictures so I offered to take them to her. She lived in the country and I couldn't make it up her drive completely so we walked the goods up half of the way.
We have our large Christmas tree up now and have a few more decorations to put up. Our shipping is done now but my wife and I still have not shopped for each other. We may hit the mall very early today and see what we can accomplish. Our Christmas plans are pretty minimal this year so we won't be too stressed for here on through the season. Our boys each will stay in their home areas and we will eat out breakfast with Della's brother and his wife Christmas day. Christmas eve services will be one tradition that we will keep.
It is cold with all this snow on the ground and I guess that is the one thing that I really don't like about this weather. The weatherman says the foot of snow really discourages the temperatures from getting very warm. We are warm enough in our old house but it would be more comfortable if it were quite so cold out there.
Thanks for stopping in today. Enjoy your Saturday.
