Simple things in Life


The first snow came last night.  I woke up to a blanket of snow that covered up all the leaves and weeds I still hadn’t finished gardening.  I went out for a short walk about to see what else I forgot in my fall cleanup.  There were small animal tracks all over the yard.   I wondered if they were dog, cat or fox.  When I got inside, I saw my buddy in the garden hunting for mice.

I love all animals, so I did not know who to cheer for.  Every time his snout went into the snow I was hoping he would not come out with a mouse.  On the other hand, I am not to fond of having the mice move into my house for the winter.  I have heard that on PEI, the mice have been particularly bothersome this fall.

I love the first snow.  The kids get excited and want to build snowmen.  Everything looks so pretty with that little wet snow clinging to the branches.  I have heard the first snow ploughs going down the road, but I have yet to hear the first snowmobiles running on the trail beside the house.  That will come soon enough and it will really be winter.

Some people complain on long cold winters. I look at them as a time to relax from a busy summer.  We also take some time to make our business plans for next year.  We make a few changes to our Bed and Breakfast, make a few renovations, and look for ways to make our guests stay more enjoyable.

Also in the winter I have more time to blog.  So check back soon to see what I have been up to.

cheers

Cindy

I often say if you can’t find me in the garden

you’ll find me in the workshop and that is true but

today you will find me frugal, and joining up with Sandi in Home and all things in it.

In the backyard I collected grape vines and boughs from the evergreens.

Then I made a circle from the vines and started to wrap.

A little messy but I saved $$ big time.

I added a few little wee things.

And added a few snowflakes. I wrapped it in lights and hung it beside the door.  

Then

I tried my hand at making a small wreath.  I found one of the girls toy bracelets for the circle.

Added some bells and whistles

I love making anything with wood slices.

Now to find a place to hang this little wreath

This will do just fine.

 

I hope you enjoyed making a wreath today?  This can be such a busy time of the year for so many. Be sure to take time out of your day to enjoy the things that matter most.  Then take some time for yourself, read a book, go for a walk or just sit and look at your Christmas decorations.  Thank you for stopping by today, leave me a note and let me know you were by the Trails of Hats’N Hospitalitea.
