it's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas ♫ ♫ ♫

Ready or not...winter has arrived!
  
At noon it began to snow lightly...
and by evening the ground was white. 


It seemed appropriate that I was off to a Christmas Extravaganza last night...
where a good friend was doing a cooking demo...
of seasonal appetizers and treats.  

It also seemed OK to turn on the Christmas lights...
and play Il Divo's Christmas Collection.
  
Bring on Christmas...I'm ready.   

Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. I had to run to the window, peer out into the dark and check after I read your post - but no snow here today, which is a good thing as I have to head up over the Malahat for work this morning. Keep that Christmas spirit!

  6. We've got the snow ---- and -20 temps. Driving is horrible and it's foggy today! Yup, winter is here and it's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!

  9. How do you have your lights UP this early? That's always my problem, getting them on the eaves before I want to turn them on. Good for you!

  10. I was hoping for snow, but alas, only rain fell. I'm glad Pondside won't have to drive in the snow over the Malahat but maybe it will start after she gets home tonight.

    Your home is welcoming with the lights.

  12. Yes, let me tell you, I hear those Christmas bells ringing in her house this past week...I said,
    Isn't the rule...DEC.1st? But then we both decided that we could also break rules.
    Your place looks lovely.

  13. How did you do those "notes"?
    We have a light covering of snow too! I was wishing I had my camera on my walk this morning ... snow on yellow leaves actually made me stop and look!

  17. Very pretty, but I can't believe that you beat me with the snow. Guess that means just one thing...it's on its way!

  18. What a beautiful, cozy, and inviting looking home. I like how the tiny lights outline the home, and the snow adds extra loveliness. May the countdown begin.

  19. Snow already?! Oh wow. Looks so pretty....

  20. Some of the folks here have their Christmas lights blazing away amidst the fall leaves. The high winds tonight should blow Autumn colors away then heavy snow will commense late Saturday. I'll opt for total seasonal confusion by flying to San Diego for some beach time with the family there. Did the Beach Boys ever cuts Christmas album for just such a confusing time?

  21. We've a forecast for our first snow today as well - nothing so far but one can always hope!! It's so much prettier than rain.

    The board games looks fun too - wonder if Ch'town made the map??

    It must have put you in the mood for Christmas decorating.

    I've been doing a lot of cooking for Thanksgiving...it's too early for me to dream about Christmas until after turkey day!
