Winter Lite (So Far)

We had our first snow here over the weekend. Not even an inch, but it looks like winter now. Not too much like winter, just a dusting. Looks pretty, doesn't it? I don't mind this kind of snow. It's pretty but it doesn't really get in your way. We do have heavier snow here in Kentucky, but usually not this early.

We have a tree in our back yard that decorates itself... see all the little red berries that have popped up? I think that looks prettier than any man-made decoration I've ever seen. (They show up better if you click on the photo.) I do have a few man-made decorations. There is an elf sitting on my front porch, and a stocking by my fireplace that says "Mele Kalikimako"... Hawaiian for "Merry Christmas". It's a sort of "amulet" that I keep in hopes of being able to live there one day.

Hello Judy and welcome to the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Don't ask me what "Commonwealth" means...and I was born and raised here. I'm guessing by the pic that you live in Louisville. Good blog...keep it up! I'll be back for a visit soon.

Hi bb, it's good to meet you. Yes, I moved from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
Thanks for encouraging me on my blog. I'm having fun with it!

E has his own stocking :) I've always liked the song that says Merry Christmas in Hawaiian.

Good morning, Judy....I got snow yesterday, only it was up to my thighs because of the drifting. I just cancelled my hair appointment in town and kept Katy home since we couldn't even get out of the garage! Had a great day actually.

I love your berry tree. Many more berry plants in your part of the country than in mine!
