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

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

sounds wonderful with 3 people playing trumpet

10C it doesn't look like December

No snow, just wet Nd a bit foggy

The winter has not started yet and it is
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
