I just noticed my little bear christmas header on my blog has an American flag in the basket ... perhaps I should have replaced it with an Aussie flag or a Canadian one... nah!!!! I love the Stars and the Stripes.. it's such a dramatic and pretty flag .. I even have one of my own.

There really is nothing like it. And I'm still amazed at the wonderful things I see when the snow has fallen and its landed on fence posts, railings, trees etc ... in all different patterns. I looked at our wooden fence the other day in the snow and it had swags of snow across it like fancy curtains in a dining room. So pretty..

A pretty desktop wallpaper for you.... One of my cups and saucers in this one ... I do enjoy my tea in a pretty cup instead of those mugs. I'm sure it all tastes so much nicer... Click on the image to see it full size... its a biggie ... and looks great on my big computer screen. It's very vintage.

Friend just phoned .. said he had a visitor up a tree. His beautiful golden retriever had chased a bear and it was sitting on the branches out of reach of Ben. So funny.... Ben got called inside and the bear made his journey down the tree and into the woods. I guess he's still getting the bird seed but he really should be sleeping or at least snuggled up in his den by now. It was so cold this morning... minus 20 and my walk with Dozer dog was short and shivery. He, of course didn't care. We came home and I threw a cheese bun out the door onto the snow for the birds ... but of course its in Dozer's belly because he didn't want anyone else to have it. One would think he's starving but instead he's being treated like royalty and because he's so big and grows a thick coat in the winter I guess he wants to keep eating as much as he can. Poor little birds will have to get another bread roll whilst old sleepy Dozer is having his afternoon nap.

lots of cold up here in the woods of British Columbia. I took old Dozer for a walk this morning and was really really glad to get back inside. All of my face was aching, my hands were cold, my nose was nearly frozen ... and it was excrutiatingly slippery trying to walk on the ice. I gently plodded my way around trying to step on the pebbles or ruts of ice that were there from tyre tracks.... but baby steps made the walk very long and exhausting. I think we'll be keeping inside a bit more if the cold continues. Perhaps I'm turning into a wimp ... :-) It never used to affect me like it has this past year and this November. Maybe its the old age creeping up that is also making me scared of falling over....

A nice old stash of Christmas images for you on one sheet. After my shopping trip yesterday it seems like Christmas is right around the corner. With snow everywhere, and trees covered and looking like christmas cards ... it sure isn't far away.

Surprise today out in the field to see four little deer. I wondered what my beautiful white Dozer dog was barking at .. it's usually a squirrel or a cat or the crows .. but today it was the deer. There is still lots of food for them to eat so we don't need to start giving them the cracked corn we usually do over the winter months... not yet anyway .... It was lovely to see them and they even started walking towards me when I spoke to them.

This little girl reminded me of one of our trick or treaters last night who came around for Halloween. We had quite a few visitors and they were all very sweet and polite ... which was extra nice. I watched the telly after everything had calmed down and saw a program where people had won the lottery. One guy paid $45,000 for a new mouth full of teeth. Good heavens .. then I got onto watching Rich Bride Poor Bride .. and one couple forked out $56,000 for their "very ordinary" wedding. Prices were incredible.. they went way over their budget ... It wasn't even a nice looking wedding although they seemed to enjoy it so I guess that's the main thing. But wow .. that would have made a good deposit on a nice house.
