Happy Holidays, whether you're celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, Yule, Kwanzaa or just enjoying the winter solstice. We're over the hump here in Quebec. The days are starting to get longer again. Whew! Even at noon, it feels like the day is almost over. We got a load of snow dumped on us last week too. Here is a picture of the path that leads to pasture that I have to walk every day to see my horse, Booker.

On the plus side, with the shorter days, I'm up in time to see some spectacular sun rises, like this one:

I spent a full day out in the snow, playing lumberjack too. A recent storm toppled about 10 cedar trees in our little forest. Can't let those go to waste! Not when we have a pasture to fence by next year so Booker can come live at our farm instead of boarding with our neighbor. Here I am on our very old ATV that we inherited with the farm. My friend, Gord, is tying a massive trunk to the ATV so I can pull it out of the forest. We did this 8 times during a snowstorm. Much fun!

Ahead of another storm coming on Saturday, I'm getting ready to nest for a few days. It will be a quiet Christmas with only my husband and mom here, but we'll eat lots, drink a little, and play in the snow. I wish you a Merry Christmas, where ever you may be.
