tonight we had more snow - even though we didn't have any in the forecast - well, quite a lot more actually! the header photo was taken around noon, and this one later in the afternoon. the sky already had this slightly pink tinge to it, when we went for a walk.
I pity the poor animals in the fields; they have to scratch for grass right now and when we went for that walk they all came running to the feeding ring, but we had nothing for them:(( several horses were trying to shelter behind a stone wall with small trees, but it must be extremely cold for them during the night!
our dog had a lot of fun in the snow though! she loves to dig tunnels with her nose, but she made a very funny face, when she did her usual scratching along the hedge - and was rewarded with a hefty snow shower:)) we also had to shake off the heavy snow load from some of the evergreen trees - the branches bend down - but don't snap upwards again, when the snow is gone! this makes them look extremely straggly, so as long as we can we try to prevent this.
I did manage to make some ornaments, with the perfect snowy background. they look complicated, but actually they are only squares, where you cut along the lines and fold the strips backwards and forwards. in the instructions it said glue, but I don't like to mix felt/fabric with glue, so I used some sewing thread and put a few beads on as deco.
the sunlight makes the colours a bit garish, they are not quite so "traffic light" inside:))
and I totally forgot to snap a photo of our christmas candle - but have a nice 1st advent anyway!
