Freezing rain and a crackling fire

What a difference a day makes!  It is absolutely terrible outside today.  

High winds and freezing rain beating against the windows....

The windows on the front of our house are totally covered in a even layer 
of pebbly ice.  It's days like this that remind me that we do live on a large rock
in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean.....and it is January after-all.

Nothing to do but get hubby to light a nice fire in the fireplace 
and brew up a big mug of peppermint tea!!

(Notice that awesome mug-----quickly became my new "all time favorite", 
from our precious little granddaughter for Christmas.) 



  1. Whau!! That looks cold! Since we moved to North Dakota I felt that it has been the coldest place we have lived in so far. I can not imagine the type of cold you have in Canada. It must be super cold! Glad you have a beautiful fireplace to enjoy the fire. That is a pretty mug! Wishing you a wonderful year in 2017!!

  2. Great day to stay by the fire.

    Love the mug, Grandma.

  3. We are under some sort of freezing rain advisory starting any minute now. We shall see if tomorrow becomes another 'snow day' with the kids.
