Celebrations December 12, 2014

It's celebrations Friday again, and time for the Celebrate the Small Things blog hop, a brilliant idea conceived by Viklit .  Every Friday we post about the things that have happened that are worth celebrating, however small.  It's fun, free, and makes  you think - and there are some wonderful bloggers who participate. 

Today I'm kicking back and enjoying the season.

There are all sorts of things about this season that I like:

the end of the 'blast furnace' heat that seems to come in July and August.

falling leaves (to really like those, I need to celebrate a willing neighbor child who will rake leaves for me)

And for the rest, some images:

You *are* wearing your slippers and have your (chose 1) cat on your lap, dog at your feet, main squeeze in your arms...

They left out the cognac!
The difference between 'hot cocoa' and 'hot chocolate has been discussed.  I prefer 'hot chocolate', but if either is brought by a smiling loved one, then I am happy.  I do, of course, eat the whipped cream (if any) first.  A jigger of cognac helps matters, too...

Ah!  The snowplow is com-  Aaack!  Run!!!  **WHOOSH!**

Ideally, this last is a view out the window.  ...although after a nice day of making snow-angels in the snow, watching the dogs romp through the drifts, and seeing that your local municipal snow removal concern has managed to (a) remove the snow without (b) destroying your mail box or (c) blocking your driveway with icebergs that will require dynamite to shift, it is pleasent to bundle up and sit on front step and watch the snow.

...though, for myself, perhaps I will look at this scene out my picture window while toasting my toes by the fire and sipping hot chocolate.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

What are you celebrating?


  1. Your photos are always so beautiful. Have good holidays!

  2. Ha, I love the whole thing about the snowplow, and that fire looks wonderful! Some hot chocolate sounds really good right about now... Have a great weekend!

  3. Yay for kicking back, the end of heat, and a helpful leaf-raker! I love the pics, especially the snowy one. Have a great weekend! :)

  4. I completely agree about the snowplow and the hot chocolate. Here's wishing you and yours a wonderful Christmas season.

  5. So much to celebrate this time of year! Have a nice weekend!

  6. Sounds absolutely wonderful, Diana. Being from the Southern Hemisphere, it's the opposite down here, getting warmer every day. I've never had a white Christmas so I was enchanted by the pictures and your descriptions.

  7. Now I want some hot chocolate! I hope you're having a great weekend!

  8. The snowy tree is a wonderful image. I have a fireplace that's so inviting. I'm off of blog hop this month due to craft orders. Have a great week. :))
