Sun on Ice

Weather here has been very cold with ice on any lying water roads quite treacherous again. Spent the 6th taking down the Christmas decorations all back up in the attic it was not a day for working outdoors as ground frozen even though the sun was shining. This morning woke up to a white scence once more due to freezing fog again the garden took on a Christmas card look but then around 9:30 the sun broke through and the fog has cleared looking out now at blue skies but very cold so no gardening today again more housework and then teaching this afternoon. Put up some photos in New year beginning .

Look very beautiful first thing in the morning with the sun rising I think Geraldine, also took my christmas tree down yesterday, it's been a bit milder down here today as we wait for the mysterious snow !!

My decos are down now too. Just a bare tree in the Living Room. Now, if only Santa had bought me a shredder!

Freezing here all day too, but luckily no snow!

lovely picture, cold here again today also. was out feeding the horses & ponies an hour or so ago and the outdoor tap was frozen already. Took the decorations down today, house looks clean again but very bare.

A Shredder, nice idea, think I might start dropping hints for the b'day present. Last day of holidays for me, back to work on monday, am both looking forward to it and dreading it at the same time. Friends over tonight for a glass or two of vino, so looking forward to that,

Enjoy the weekend everyone
