“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliott Erwitt

The Polar Express Has Arrived

...and it's going to be here for at least a week!
I woke up at 5 and could not get back to sleep, 
so I was quite available to grab on few shots of the sunrise.
First I fed Sophie and Seymour.

 It's a darn good thing the sun came out so the horses could catch a break from the cold.
 I was feeling pretty energetic early in the day and decided to make 
a big pot of ham and cabbage soup.

 By 2 in the afternoon it was all about napping and I finished the book I have been reading.
It felt so good not to have any commitments.

 A picture of a messy bowl, but the soup tasted great!

Time for a hot shower, jams and the fire.
Night all.


  1. One good thing this started after Santa had paid a visit. Guess it is freezing, as in Antarctica, one person said " down here there is COLD, and VERY COLD, nothing else" we had a cold start to the day here for us ,about 7 Celsius,( 45F ) and further south about 3 Celsius.( 37F), not coldfor you at all, For New Zealand, that is really quite cold for December, how do the doggies manage to survive out there? Have a warm time inside.Yummy soup.

  2. Love the header picture. Gonna be cold here too for the week. A fire sounds good.

  3. Looks like a wonderful evening. I often am up at 4...Mr. Morris demands it. I do love early mornings.
    Yes the cold is here.
