Winter Memories

So the temperature has dropped here in England.  I woke up this morning to a damp cold morning with highs of 7 degrees.  7!   It feels like it should be snowing:).  I am sitting writing this with a blanket over me and a thick knit on listening to Christmas music.

There has been a lot of lazy school work in the house.  My brother decided to do his maths on the sofa with his quilt on top of him.

My twin, in order to keep herself warm decided she would chuck on a beanie. A Christmas beanie:)

Many cups of tea have been made in our whistling kettle.

That’s what is going on inside the house.  I decided to find some photos of the garden to show you. The leaves have turned red, golden and orange:

The log pile is slowly diminishing as fires are lit every night:

And our apple tree is slowly losing all its leaves leaving apples hanging desolately on the branches

To finish the outdoors.  The last roses are dying as the cold sweeps in.

Now a Christmas vibe has been going around our house as my twin, Charlotte, and I start planning  Christmas.  Charlotte  has already readied her room with Christmas lights

I really love Christmas as it gives me a sense of togetherness and I feel like this in the month and half running up to it.  There are nights where the fire is on and I  am sitting with Thomas and Charlotte watching TV and we are all happy and it reminds me of how blessed I am to be sitting in when its cold outside.  And how blessed I am to be sitting with my older brother and my twin.  Trust me winter could not get any better:)

    That was an amazingly lyrical sentence with great word choice. I just had to tell you how well written it was.
