Merry Christmas




 

I'm grabbing a few minutes before the festive chaos takes hold to share a few pictures with you. All is quiet for now with an almost full moon shining on the white fields around the village. The snow is beautiful but painful on the paws, as Magnus found out.


 

When the weather is cold  all I want to do is stay at home and keep warm and my newly found obsession with all things yeasty has been perfect for days such as these. I'm still learning though,  today I had to leap out of the bath when I realised that I'd mixed up a huge batch of dough and left it to rise but forgotten to add any yeast. Thankfully it turned out well in the end.






Whatever you do and however you celebrate at this time of the year,  I wish you every happiness.

Such beautiful photographs! Your village looks so pretty in the snow. (My Christmas is going to be scorchingly hot ~ 38 degrees celcius for Christmas Day.) I hope you all have a wonderful, restful break.

Good Lord! The photograph with the reflecting pond and snow looks like a slightly sentimental Xmas card, or a painting by Thomas (ack) Kinkaide. Lovely to see what all of those images are alluding to. So very pretty.
