Christmas cookies have been baked. There are three more varieties to make and then I need to box them up for the handful of neighbors who I take some to every year.
I did end up decorating the pergola with garland and a wreath because Costco had their 25-foot garland on sale for $8 and I just couldn’t pass it up. It took me all of 45 minutes to get it hung so it was well worth the effort.
The Christmas cards will go out in today’s mail. I’m not thrilled with how the printing turned out on them, but that’s how it goes.
But what REALLY makes it look like Christmas around here is the small snowfall we got yesterday afternoon. It’s the first in 288 days which is a record.
I got home at dusk because I had to run a dog to the vet and happily pulled in with just enough light to snap a couple pictures of the pretty scene.
See? Wasn’t the garland worth it?
This is looking down the last hill to the turn off to the house. I’ve been stopping in the same spot on the road when I can and snapping a picture and putting it up on Instagram. I thought it would be fun to see how the view changes throughout the year. This is the 25th picture I’ve taken there and the first with snow. It should be noted, those are not my crazy tire tracks!
The window box looks so festive covered in snow and all lit up.
