Home for Christmas

"I'm dreaming of a white Christmas. . . "

In North Carolina, we can dream all we want; almost never are our Christmases white. We've lived here for almost 17 years, and only once during that time did we have snow on Christmas day.

This year, though, we got a little taste of what a white Christmas could be like. No wonder this is the stuff of dreams.

Isn't it lovely?

When we lived in Michigan, a snowstorm meant that we needed to stay home for a few hours, waiting for the plows and salt trucks to clear the streets. In North Carolina, though, a snow like the one we had last week means that we hunker down for days and days.

After all that hunkering, I'm woefully behind on some of the errands I need to run. I've made lists and checked them twice, but a lot of things just haven't gotten done.

Oh well. The snow's all gone now.

Our skies are blue once again.

I'm finally getting the Christmas decorating done.

It really is beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

In the midst of all the holiday bustle, with or without snow, I sure am glad to be home for Christmas.

What are things looking like in your neck of the woods? Are you ready for Christmas?


  1. Wow all that snow was beautiful, but you really do have to stay in. Glad it is all gone.

  2. It does look beautiful but not being able to get out for days must be hard. This time of year the last thing you need.

    A few hours we are out in NJ. Your porch looks wonderful.

    Merry Christmas


  3. It has been a rainy December but not cold thank goodness. I am one of those that thinks a good Christmas is warm enough to get outside with toys that kids got from Santa. I am in the minority even here in north Florida. The snow was pretty though. Merry Christmas.

  4. It didn't get as snowy in Charlotte. We had rain beforehand so it melted and became icy. Snow would've been so much prettier. Wishing you a Merry Christmas.

  5. The snow was the perfect thing to get me in the mood for Christmas. Your house looks beautiful with a blanket of white and your porch is very welcoming. Merry Christmas my friend, and blessings in the year to come.

  6. Richella,
    Oh, how lovely is your home. . .but more so with the SNOW!
    Your porch looks lovely all decked out for Christmas!
    Merry Christmas and the happiest of New Year's!
