I am wondering if my last year's photos of my Christmas village is as close to snow as we'll get for Christmas in Ottawa this year.
Bing Crosby's got it right when he sings the words, "I'm dreaming of a White Christmas, just like the one's I used to know...." Aside form being one of my all time favourite Christmas movies to watch each year I too am dreaming of a white Christmas.
It is a rare December when we don't have snow in this area, but I do remember a number of years ago another green December. The reason I remember it is because my husband had made a comment about cutting the grass in December.
People in Ottawa typically do not cut their grass in December because the grass has stopped growing and is covered in snow.
I have been enjoying the very mild-record breaking temperatures however, I do like snow for Christmas. I also like snow when the temps are cold as it offers children something to play with when they're outside. This is particularly important during recess.
I know that it has been quiet here over the past couple of weeks. I've been doing a great deal of writing in my head as well as some writing for a couple of other places.
I have been writing some articles for Spur Ottawa and I have included the links below to my two most recent articles.
Gifts for Mr. and Mrs. Claus
The Big Give
I have also included links that are the topic of another article which will appear soon in Spur Ottawa.
Gospel For Asia

What has kept you busy over the past couple of weeks? Have you had record warm temps for December too?
