Today was the day ... with snow falling and nowhere to go, I delighted in the beginning of my Christmas preparations.

Today's window-scape.

The Christmas CD's came out of storage and tradition has it the first one always played are songs from an old Roger Whitaker record. With just the right song queued I called our daughter in the prairies for another tradition - Whitaker's 'Home for Christmas' which had her in happy tears - sorry! Only 28 sleeps till our little prairie family arrives for the holidays.

One more tradition on the day that the Christmas tunes begin in our home ... I bake some cookies. Today they were Cranberry/Almond/Candied Ginger Biscotti that were yummy with our after supper tea.

Just like the rest of the year."

Love how you captured the snow and yellow leaves through your front door. I have the same biscotti recipe on my counter ready for baking. Bala a town in Ontario grows cranberries and now dries sweetened and unsweetened and they are so soft and fresh.
