Merry Christmas!

I have just written this message upside down with a broom handle, from my front doorstep.  My sons are coming later tonight, and I thought they'd get a kick out of it.  Perhaps I should have written, "Don't just stand there, grab a snow shovel."

We had some snow during the week, which never really melted before today's snowfall.  While it doesn't really amount to much, it does make corners a bit slick when driving.

Thank you to Mke and Dina for your lovely Christmas cards.  I'm sorry my blog seems to be dwindling away.  With Photobucket now requesting money for photos that have previously been uploaded, I find it quite disheartening.  Anyway, if I do blog, I will just upload the photos from my computer as I did above.

The hummingbirds are once again slurping up slushy nectar because of the freezing temperatures (usually 2 - 4 degrees below 0 C).  There are lots of winter birds around enjoying the suet blocks and seeds.

It's Christmas dinner day tomorrow, and I have made a steamed pudding for dessert.  There are a few cookies around, too, which, knowing my sons, may not last until tomorrow.
I wish you all a most delightful Christmas and very best wishes for 2018.


  1. Nice to see this post, and shame about Photobucket.
    I can never get used to you mentioning hummingbirds in such weather.
    Enjoy your dinner and dessert. Thanks, and for you too. xx

  2. I've used Photobucket from time to time. Now they have more than doubled the cost of the smallest paid for allowance they will get nothing from me in stead of the previous $25 a year.
    Great to hear from you again. Wishing you and yours a very happy Christmas.

  3. How lovely to see a post from you! Seems everyone is trying to make that extra buck, in the end they just lose people. Love your snowy message. All the very best to you and yours. xxxx

  4. I love the idea of your alternate message! Yes, we miss your blog, but understand the discouraging developments. I use Flickr now (paid account) but used to use Photobucket. Hope your dinner will your family was full of joy.
