a dusting of snow near Caledon


just a nice layer of snow


in horse country


with our eyes we could see Mississauga
but not clear enough for the camera


love the black and White contrast


some expensive real estate here, requiring gates


The windows look a bit like a church, 
would love to see this place from inside


this house is for rent and has a gorgeous view


some of these places used to be farm land

Winter at the Bruce Trail


A beautiful day for a hike


the apples are done


mostly we were on the road



but some very nice stretches in the bush


interesting house


it was about 0C
cold on the road and warm in the bush


we found a spot out of the wind, nice for lunch


cup-a-soup and a sandwich


we climbed a few stiles


went underneath highway 10


in this tunnel, worked well

Freezing Rain ended


We had freezing rain over night
Rien went a bit sideways with the tractor


we still ate veggies from our own garden
yesterday Kale with Bill's country sausage


It's raining now, kind of a dreary day

A Very Green Christmas


The snow blower is attached



 But so far there is little snow


The wood pile is unusually high,
due to the weather they could keep on going


nice day to walk around the farm


unusually mild

Christmas 2015


we spent a lot of our Christmas in church
first the candle light service

video

Marc on the Cajon


preaching was in order of the words in light
Hope, Peace, Love, Joy & Light


Singing "Silent Night"


This morning we sang "Ere zij God"
for many people the only song they sing or at least have heard
in the Dutch language


Tradition!!!
sounds wonderful with 3 people playing trumpet

Already the shortest day

Les Amis Christmas


we did some fun games

 Rolling dice to uncover treasure

 backwards charades

 only one person guesses


 I think this was a nativity

 and we sang quite a few songs


that was a nice part of the evening too
