Snowflakes spill from heaven’s hand
Lovely and chaste like smooth white sand.
A veil of wonder laced in light
Falling gently on a winters night.
Graceful beauty raining down
Giving magic to the lifeless ground.
Each snowflake like a falling star
Smiling beauty that’s spun afar.
Till the earth is dressed in a robe of white
Unspoken poem the hush of night.

We had our first significant snowfall one night this week and I have to say it was a beautiful winter wonderland outside the next morning.
The rosemary continues to flourish even after a couple of frosts and almost a foot of snow on it. I used some to sprinkle on a tray of roasted root vegetables for dinner.
An early Christmas present arrived by courier and I was delighted to find the Holiday Tea Collection plus a couple other varieties from our oldest daughter. I highly recommend the Roasted Chestnut.
What do you think, too much purple? I'll keep looking at it until speaks of overkill or thanks for the extra frills.
In the kitchen the ceramic tree I made back in the 70's contributes to the season's twinkling lights and you can see the snow is dwindling as I type. Not to worry, more is on the way and I enjoy afternoon tea all cozy inside while watching the twirling flakes outside.
Today while I wrapped a few presents Topaz had a snooze in his bed with a shaft of sunbeams dancing over his face. #magicmoment
Fresh figs don't show up at our grocery store very often but when a case of 15 was on sale for $10 I hurried in to snap one up. I cut them in half to eat but thoughts of 'figgy pudding' crossed my mind. #simplepleasures
