It’s a blustery day here on the Island – winds are gusting to 100 kph (62mph)
I took this picture to show you the tree down
and then just as I turned around to take a picture of this sweet kitty,
I heard a crrrack
and whoah! Two trees down!
I was just about to post this and the power went out.
In the meantime, the temperature dropped and the wind picked up even more.
Our stove keeps us warm and cozy when the power is out. But doing without running water isn’t much fun, so I was very glad when it came back on a few hours later.
And of course, I could finish my blog post to you 🙂
Today I’ve been working on my clove studded oranges – they’ll go in my Christmas gift baskets.
They have such a spicy, Christmassy smell
Too bad this picture’s not scratch and sniff.
This afternoon, I have a few more presents to wrap, some sugar cookies to bake and a menu to plan for Christmas Eve and Christmas day dinner.
Then, this evening, I think I’ll watch a movie from my Christmas collection ~ The Bishop’s Wife. Here’s one of my favourite scenes.
Hope you’re having a cozy day too!
