Welcome friends everywhere to Winter's first day!

December 21st, the shortest day of the year!

It's always exciting to see whose name will be drawn for the
gift giveaways!

And the winning name is....

Congratulations and Christmas hugs to Lauren!

Thank you and Christmas hugs to everyone who entered the drawing!

My next gift giveaway will be in January to

Do you have an old artificial Christmas tree in your stash? 
Look at how you can transform it...

Wow, what a great way to make your own "Feather Tree"!

A chilly Wintery Solstice morning here on the farm... 

Thick layer of frost on the farm fields with the sun rising in the
misty fog...a serenity now moment!

We had our first snow fall last Friday, the country side was so peaceful...

Neighboring horses resting in the newly fallen snow...sadly Friday's snow has
all melted away!

The final countdown to Christmas Day, I bet the North Pole
is busy, busy, busy!!

Trivia ~ Do you know all the names of Santa's Reindeer?


There was Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner,
Blitzen and the most famous of them all...Rudolph!

Weekly Soul Food...

Come unto me,
all ye that labour and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.
