Saturday Photo: Sun to Greet the New Year?

 Confession: the photo was taken some time ago when we actually had some sunny weather.  It's been gray and rainy for the last couple of days and all the snow is melting.  Would love to have the sun greet the new year, but the forecast says no.

Whatever, best wishes for a splendid 2023.

Saturday Photo: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Here's the tree.  Don't know who will be around to celebrate tonight and tomorrow, given the weather conditions and Covid amongst us.  But it looks pretty good, none the less.  

Here's the link to our holiday blog, too, in case you're interested.

Saturday Photo: Inside Looking out until the Side Walk Tractors Pass

 Lots of fluffy white stuff has been falling since the middle of the night.  Maybe we'll have a white Christmas...

But I'm not going out until the sidewalk tractors come by.  Snowy sidewalks are a good excuse to stay inside and read.

Saturday Photo: The Jade Plant Blooms, Again

 Always nice to see my big jade plant bloom.  It spends the summer in the sun outside, and then comes in as soon as it begins to get really cool.  After a month or so in a sunny window the little white, star-like flowers burst out.  A nice thing for the end of the year....

Saturday Photo: Sil for Christmas

 In recent years I've had trouble finding salt herring to make sil, Swedish pickled herring.  But this year I hit the jackpot: nice firm, fat herring from Marché Epicure

Spent a good part of the morning filleting and cleaning them, and now I have four large jars of sil in the fridge, ready for celebrations later this month.
