Ahhh, Those Ice-Encrusted Winterberries...

How they are sparkling this morning! We ended up with that wintry mix of snow, sleet, freezing rain, plain rain and general YUK yesterday. Lost power for three hours around suppertime, and again sometime during the night. But, this morning, it's just glorious out there! Especially beautiful are the clumps of vibrant red winterberrries, just glistening, so, so beautiful!

Lots of errands to run today as tomorrow looks like the first ice-fishing outing of this season. Although the ice is definitely only spotty-safe in places, we know it's plenty thick where we often fish, in the Belgrade Lakes area. Now to find some bait...

On Monday, we'll look at several more money-saving, gifts-from-your kitchen ideas. It's hard because we know America's overweight, we know that just about everyone says they're trying to lose weight, and yet we still give - and get - so many tempting treats at this time of year. And we do NOT resist them, do we? Now don't laugh, but one of my holiday favorites is the dreaded fruitcake... I've seldom met one I didn't like!

Have a wonderful weekend. Mary
