Christmas Sunday

Our lovely family Christmas got even more wonderful with a significant fall of snow last evening, and a freezing, crystal morning.

We're open as usual, but the Gallery has been dressed for Christmas:

a lovely Nordman tree - from up the hill at Legananny

the fireplace

we've moved the big table into the window
and the settee in front of the fire - very cosy for all!
The morning walk round the garden was a very sparkly affair!

charging around!

singing jingle bells

Ernie's first snow....

ice crystals on the cupboard

and from the puddles

across the lawn

and cuddles for Charlie

what a stunning day,
A quick trip to the local shop for milk and things was a great excuse for a walk to the Lighthouse Road viewpoint, about a mile away.

Slieve Garron - with famine fields picked out by the snow

looking South East to County Armagh

Slieve Gullion

a beautiful Mournes Panorama

 Back home - we baked some bread:

using antique 'Hovis' tins donated by Caroline

even turkey sandwiches taste great in this bread!
