Stubborn

There’s no doubt now – it’s going to be a white Christmas.  Well, I guess we could get a warm spell again that would melt the snow that fell continuously all day yesterday, but somehow I think it is here to stay.  Darn!  I have been stubbornly dreaming of a winter with warmer than normal temperatures and none of that white stuff.  I know, dream on right?

I was really busy yesterday cleaning my house in preparation for bringing out the Christmas decorations.  My hubby and I even went out and bought our Christmas tree.  As we pulled back into our driveway, I glanced over my neighbour’s snow-covered lawn at their poor naked apple tree and was surprised to see a couple of red apples still clinging to the leafless branches.  I kind of felt close to the apple tree at that moment because I think it, like me, is in denial about winter.  Oh well, it’s only a little over 6 months until summer.  I think I will start counting down!

    That’s a great photo. It is fun to see the last few apples that hang onto the tree.

    I wish we would have a white Christmas in London. It rained a lot last night, but I wished it was snow. I hope it warms up for you.

  4. Well, your wish worked. It’s going to be quite warm for the time of year this week. It would be nice to have a white Christmas, but I just worry about my parents because they are driving to our house for Christmas this year, and the driving where I live can get pretty nasty in the winter. As long as it doesn’t storm, I will be happy. I sure hope you get your white Christmas!!

    I love those last few stubborn apples every year. Bare branches, gray everywhere and then, out of the corner of my eye, a flash of red. I also like that time of year because it means no more giant piles of apple poop in the house from my apple loving dogs! 😉

  6. Yes, I was so drawn to the burst of colour in the midst of a gray day. It was like hope in a way, if that makes any sense. Glad you will be without the apple poop for a while, and thanks for visiting!!
