Some photos to look at...

Looking up the hill from our front garden.
The young South African's who rent the house down from us had never seen snow before so they built a snowman on the pavement in their great excitement. You can see from here how difficult it is for us to negotiate the hill when there is snow lying.

Snow in the back garden.

The view up to the farm which sits on the fell top.

Hollie as a Dalmation- come- Zombie- Witch? Lol!

Ryan before having his face painted

Ryan as Denis The Menace/Zombie

Grandma finished off these lanterns hence the wobbly teeth or gaps in their mouths. Lol!

I hope you enjoy the selection of photos above.
Some are from our recent snowfall ,which as you can see can hamper us from getting out in the car, or on foot for that matter.
These have all been sitting in my camera as I could not find the lead which links it to the computer until yesterday. As I said then, in yesterday's entry, I found it in the suitcase which I had taken up to the Borders with me.

I spent Halloween up there with my daughter and grandchildren as they needed looking after whilst she was at University.
This is the waterfall which Bryan built during the summer. It's beginning to take shape. Once the plants grow it will look more natural. Mind you..I had to give up my footpath for this but it was worth it. I walked up it safely enough to view it from the top but I fell on my way down as the cobbles shifted underneath my feet. I was lucky not to break my wrist but 'all's well that ends well'.
The pastoral view photograph is me wending my way up to the farmhouse where my friend's daughter lives.
I found it dfficult last week to negotiate this road as it was still thick with ice. I had my heart in my mouth a few times I can tell you.
I miss AOL Albums as we were able to download all the photos we wanted to.
Here on Blogger they have to be embedded which is much slower.
Never mind

I hope these images appear ok. I have had a devil of a time trying to edit some of the Html which couldn't be accepted. Haven's knows what that is until I post it properly.
Toodle pip for now!

Love the 'snowy' pictures, and I too couldn't venture out on that hill.Would love a water feature, never mind a waterfall :>) No room I'm afraid....
Thanks for your recent visit!

Sybil said...

Goodness Jeanie, You sure had it bad up there.. As you say your road would not be very good in that kind of understatment I would say !!! You were brave to try to get up to the farm..or mad...take your choice !!
Like the look of Bryans waterfall, will have to inspect it next time we are up !!
Love for now Sybil xx

Lori J said...

Jeanie, Thank-you so much for stopping by to say hello. Your music just soothed me and I think I will head to bed.
Yes, we have lots of snow as well and very cold. Today it warmed up to -17C
I only went out across the street to play the piano for the old folks home while they had their Christmas party with family.

Blessings dear one and have a great Christmas with family and friends

Love Alberta LORI

Marie said...

Loved all the pictures Jeanne, especially the snow ones and your grandkids of course! My but they look so much like you, especially Ryan! I just upload my pictures onto Photo bucket and then put them in from there, easy peasy, lemon squeasy!

Gerry said...

That is the snowiest photo I have seen yet this season. No wonder the people who had never seen snow were so excited! I enjoyed the photos so much. It was nice getting a visit from you, but we must all watch ourselves not to overdo. I felt bad to think Jeannette has been ordered by her doctor to spend much less time on the computer for the sake of her health, but sometimes it is necessary to think health first! But she plans to make an entry atleast twice a week, and may have to cut back considerably on her rounds. I mised you, but I want you to put health first. So you will be around longer! Gerry

Joan said...

Lovely pictures what an amount of snow there is no way I wold try to negotiate that hill in the snow. I don't usually have the sound up on the pc but today it was on what lovely music you are playing it is so soothing. Love Joan.

Claudia's thoughts said...

Love the snow that amount of snow unusual for where you live. In Western PA we ususally get about 50 inches per year. The childrens pictures wer great..

Jenny said...

Photo's are lovely but far too much snow for my liking. I have a camera but never think about taking photos, i tend to pinch them off the net from other members of family.

Cathy said...

Your "Happy Christmas" entry wouldnt load so I wish you SWEET SATURNALIA AND WARMEST WINTER SOLSTICE!

Lisa said...

As always I enjoyed your photos. I can see you have been having your share of snow!! I can only imagine how hard it is to get up, or come to a stop going down...that hill. A white knuckle ride for certain. The kids are adorable in their costumes. I love the waterfall ~ I would love to having something like that.
Be careful getting around in the ice & snow.

Julie said...

Wow, lots more then your snow last year wasn't it. I love the snowman. Our snow has been that fine stuff you can't mold. Be careful being out and about. Your grandchildren are adorable.

I left a comment when this first was posted and I see it didn't take. Off into cyperspace I guess, LOL. LOved Loved the calendar. Thank you my dear friend.

Jeannette said...
