A Late Christmas Present to My Readers

Between preparing for the holidays and my other commitments, 
I have barely had time to myself, let alone time to blog.

With that in mind, I gathered up a few pictures of the season that I had been saving
and decided to gift them to you in this rare moment of downtime that I have.

It also doesn't hurt that I am currently stuck inside due to an early season blizzard.


 Festive lights on a horse-drawn carriage in downtown Indianapolis.

I liked the effect here as we sped past them on the street.

 The Circle Centre Mall Conservatory over Illinois and Washington Streets is lit up for the season.

 Another group enjoying a carriage ride.

 Monument Circle is lit up like a Christmas tree.

 The tree on the first floor of the Scottish Rite Cathedral is decked out.

 We enjoyed a lovely sunset on one of the final days of autumn.

 And then we received snow on the first day of winter.

I took this picture for friend and fellow blogger,
Rosie Hawthorne, of Kitchens Are Monkey Business fame.

I know how she loves her snow.

After I took this picture out the back door, I had to go collect the cat, who decided to venture outside.  Bad Minx.

 The next morning we awoke to find that we had about 1 1/2 to 2 inches of snow.

The schools were cancelled for the day.

 Fast forward to the day after Christmas and see what we woke up to see outside our windows.

Now this is what you call snow.

Thus far we have 11" of snow on the ground.

 Of course, this also means that I am stuck at home with a house full of people who couldn't get to work.

 We wish you and yours a happy and safe holiday season,
from all of us at the Foodie household.

I love snow.

We're having thunderstorms
and pouring down rain all day long.

We had thunder snow this morning.

It looks like the snow has stopped for the most part. Now comes the digging out.

Merry Christmas, Marilyn. Thanks for the snow pictures and the Christmas decorations.

Your Monument Circle lights look like the Washington Monument lights we have here in Baltimore.
