The trees on the mountain were frozen and looked beautiful.
It was foggy and the fog just froze on the trees.
The picture can only partially capture the beauty of it.
☃ ☃ ☃ ☃It was a bit chilly out there walking this morning but it was beautiful as well. It was cloudy, 25 degrees and just a bit breezy. Yesterday my face got a bit chapped from the cold wind and last night I put Vaseline on it and it was almost back to normal this morning. Put some more on this morning to protect my face from the cold and will start doing that on these cold mornings.
Walked out toward HT again and also up Barn Sale Rd, but just part way up to the wide open part. Just a bit too cold and windy to be out in the open. Headed into town and then just walked around there. Again I didn't see anyone else out. Didn't even spot any animals except for a some cows and they were huddled around hay pile eating.
I stayed warm in all my layers but it was still nice to come home to a cozy warm house.
I walked 6.2 miles.
☃ ☃ ☃ ☃Had a nice time last night at the restaurant and ornament exchange. I got a sparkly golden reindeer to hang on the tree. The food was very good and there was much laughter and just a good time.
After lunch we went out to the Shop and Save and replenished our ice cream. We wait until a sale and then stock up.
Still knitting on the baby sweater, but so far it is going smoothly and I've had no trouble. Hope I didn't speak too soon!!
The movie, Mr Blandings Builds His Dream House came in the mail from Netflix today and we plan on watching it this evening and eating home made pizza. A nice cozy thing to do on a cold evening. The movie is an old Cary Grant movie and my blogger friend Kerin recommended it.
It's been another good day here in western Maryland. Would like to see a little snow though. : )
Hope your day is a good one too and that you are happy and content.

The universal joy of Christmas is certainly wonderful.
We ring the bells when princes are born,
or toll a mournful dirge when great men pass away.
Nations have their red-letter days, their carnivals and festivals,
but once in a year and only once,
the whole world stands still to celebrate the advent of a life.
Thanks for all the prayers for Farmer Georg. I'll let you know if I hear anything else about him.
Barb - Thanks for stopping by. I often think of Centennial Lake and walking around it and I can't think of it without thinking of you. You are part of place. : ) I miss those awesome sunrises. Happy walking. : )
