Let It Snow

Well, we're on our second major snow storm in December! It doesn't really snow much in Ireland, but when it does... At least this year. Last year was close, but not the accumulation. We've had 4-5 inches last night, several more this morning and it is still snowing. The amount doesn't sound extreme to those who are well seasoned, but without plows, salt, tires and cars equipped for such weather, it's a mess. No snow shovels either. We've resorted to dishwasher salt on the walkway to melt the ice. Works great!!

Roy and I walked the kids to school this morning. Found 10 euro on the ground and went for a coffee on the snowy way home! It's beautiful. Light, fluffy, not overly cold and perfect for this time of year.
We stopped off at our local organic butcher and picked up 3 kinds of boar sausage, and a large ham for Christmas dinner. We're expecting family from Indiana and Spain. I'm really hoping they open the airport back up by then.

Our little feeder for the starving birds. They're not use to fending for themselves.

Just saw your link from Clasheen's site, your work is delightful, it looks like you have a lot of fun mixing colors! My husband and I lived in Maynooth for several years, and miss Ireland so much. I've done some nuno and bought an embellishing machine, that's fun too. Have a lovely New Year! Mary Anne living near Seattle, Washington
