After weeks and weeks of rain or fine days, we finally have some snow today! It's falling very prettily here in rural Nova Scotia in Canada, where we've been spared the harsh weather hitting many other parts of the Northern Hemisphere (including, bizarrely, the UK).
Okay, there's not quite enough snow to equal that in the photo of St John's above, but we're getting there :)
St John's is the church I go to. Isn't it beautiful? It's in a style called "carpenter Gothic" because the shipbuilders of Lunenburg didn't have stone, they had wood and mad woodworking skills :) It's the second oldest Anglican church in Canada. It actually burned down in 2001, a year before David and I moved here from Toronto -- and the parish rebuilt it exactly as it was (but with improved systems). For the first few years I was in Lunenburg we worshipped in the Parish Hall as we watched the church rise, literally, from the ashes.
I'm singing with the choir this Christmas, and our service of Lessons and Carols is on Sunday morning, one of my favourite services of the year.
Anyway, I hope you're all well, whichever Hemisphere you're in, and whatever the weather's doing!
