I live in Canada and I know I should be used to the cold but we have been a little spoiled this winter. The temperature has been more fall-like but last night it dipped to -10c. My husband went to work this morning and I cuddled up in my big chair and looked outside.
Layla quite enjoyed the little birds that sat on the trees outside our window. I remember my grandfather telling me that when you get a lot of birds early in the morning at the feeder colder weather was coming. I also remember my grandmother hating the winter months. She loved the warm weather. I always liked all of the seasons but as I get older I too do not look forward to the cold. I do not think it is just me, very rarely do I see kids playing outside in the winter. When I was little you could not get me to come in. Between building snowmen, snow forts and skating I practically lived outside in the winter.
It is such a cold day that I decided to catch up on my films. This morning I watched The King's Speech. I just loved this film. Colin Firth deserved his oscar and Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter were brilliant. Being part British, my heart swelled with pride at the end of this film. The rich heritage of the British Empire is so wonderful. This is a film worth watching.
I would like to share the very last Christmas pictures of the year today. I have so enjoyed this holiday season. Decorating my home and having this wonderful blog to share with my blogging friends. I will really miss my Christmas blog background when I change in the New Year.
I wanted to show how pretty it was under the tree before I had to take every single present to our sons house Christmas morning. Luca decided he was our gift this year. One last thing today. Carmen at Primcats is going in for emergency appendectomy surgery today, what a way to spend New Years. All the best to you Carmen and I hope you have a speedy recovery.
