Anyway, a few photos from around home and what I've been up to so far this December.
This has been a familiar scene everyday:
Pleeeeease take us for a walk!
Which of course I do, no matter what the weather. Because I love them so much! I try to take the camera and snap a few shots, in between throwing sticks and chasing them around. These are few things I photographed:
The berry photos were all taken a couple of weeks ago (very late blackberries and fairy-blasted no doubt) and there isn't a berry around today. Sure sign of a very cold winter!
Lovely pheasant - doesn't she blend in well?
And busy bird-feeders!
And, after all that, I come in to sit before our wood-burning stove and dry out the boots. I wish I could have pretty, flower covered, clean boots, but these ones really earn their keep!
Then there was a spot of baking, as that's something I love to do when it's cold and wet outside:
Dulche de Leche Brownie ingredients
The finished article! Notice the gooey caramel and slightly underdone centre? Yum!
Drunk with a cup of hot Earl Grey Tea.
So, that's been my December so far. Christmas is coming swiftly. I want to wish all of you a peaceful, happy and lovely Yule holiday, and I hope that you get everything that you wish for. Thank you so much for visiting my little blog all year and thank you for your lovely comments - they mean so much.
Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2012, from me to you ~Siobhan xox
