Winter Is Here

Today started off cloudy but there was no wind and no sign of snow. Yet by this afternoon snow started to fall. Not much at first and it was melting as soon as it hit the ground.

The temperature started to drop and by 5 pm this is what the outside looked like.
Now there is a lot more and it is still coming down. Looks as if winter is here to stay as our temperature is not supposed to get above freezing any longer this month.

This turned out to be the perfect day to get a few chores done around the kitchen (tomorrow is supposed to be the same way).

I pulled out the slow cooker and started to make baked beans.
This is what they looked like when I started, and here is the finished product.

Just waiting for them to cool down enough to put into the freezer. Yummy goodness to eat later on this winter.

Then because making beans did not keep me busy enough I started my Christmas baking.

I made this Almond Bark first.

Next it was on to Butter Tarts. Sorry there is no picture of these beauties. I made 3 dozen and stuck them in the freezer as quickly as possible. If I leave them out for any length of time Harvey has a bad habit of snacking on them.

This was a very productive day in the old homestead. I just love the way the house smells getting ready for the Christmas celebrations. Between times I get to do crafty things!!!

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.
