The Week Before Christmas Scratched

Just doodling inspired by the frozen puddles

We live in a gem of a community.
So many talented people.
This evening we listened to the music of the community band
and the dulcet tones of the choir.
(Woops, I see I forgot half their mouths!)

It snowed all day

Out on the basin scooters caught our eye
they were staying in the same spot
..... must be good food about.
Then we spied the eagle above them
He fought strong winds to stay motionless
then dove into the waters near the birds
Three times
What a privilege

Grocery bags bulging
only two of us this Christmas
amazing how much food we buy

A glorious sunshiney day

but on Sunday it snowed all day

A week stretched back

and nearly another six months are done.

I hope your stockings are hanging by the chimney with care
in hopes that St Nicholas soon will be there!


  1. Lovely scratchings - it's going to be such a joy in years to come to look back over this stitched diary. I'm anxious to see what your project will be in 2013! Merry Christmas!

  2. Merry Scratchings and Merry Christmas!!

  3. You've silenced the singers!! My Dad and I went shopping yesterday, we, too had bulging bags! Have a peaceful and lovely day.

  4. No snow here....just bucket-loads of rain!!

    I think all the carol-singers have decided to stay inside in the all is calm but not very bright.

    Have a good one!
