  7. You must have been visiting my neighborhood! ha ha. No, really, the scene looks just like Hokkaido, where I live. Except that we have such heavy snowfall, the first floor windows get covered up for five months of the year. I love the birch trees!!

  8. A beautiful winter scene....I can feel the fire and almost taste the hot cocoa (with marshmallows) as I watch the snow flakes drift down onto the Birch Trees....

    Lovely, lovely!!!!

  9. This makes me want to trudge through the thick snow and get to the little house where the homefires burn warm and strong!

    And there will be hot cocoa waiting for me there too, right?

    ciao bella!

    Yesterday I was bitten by 2 Big dogs out of the blue((:
    Then I had to defend myself,and Marja was so proud of Me when I just walked away...
    On my head I have a bump,so today I made the most of it even got some meatballs from the pasta :))

    Big wet kiss and a big hug from Marja
