Wassailing in Blue

Here we come a wassailing
Among the leaves so green,
Here we come a wandering
So fair to be seen.

Love and joy come to you,
And to you your wassail too,
And God bless you and send you a happy New Year.
And God send you a happy New Year.

The Time Traveller brewed some fine Amarone that we bottled today. Cat is definitely in the holiday spirit.

Is it any wonder that there is so much wassailing going on when the landscape is so blue? No, I do not have a blue filter on my camera. This is a typical winter day in Ontario. It's beautiful, in a stark, study-in-blue sort of way.

If not for the trees, it is difficult to differentiate the snow from the sky. Thankfully, the roads were clear and we had a lovely drive in the country.


  1. Dear Shari,
    As I have followed your journey this past year I have enjoyed so much seeing the world through your eyes. Your pictures and eloquent words have expressed such beauty, serenity and appreciation of all that is around you.
    May the blessings of Christmas fall on you, the Time Traveler and of course the omniscient and sagacious (I had to look those words up) Cat and I wish for you a happy and healthy New Year.

    Aunt S
    P.S. I'm sure that I am not the only one who is hoping that you will decide to continue writing your blog after February.

  2. Ah, George Gershwin's 'Wassail in Blue' - written before his better known large scale work... :0)

    You can substitute 'Blue' for 'New' and the verse still works well!

    BTW, Photoshops' 'Remove Color Cast' will drive the blues away.

    Happy (surreal) Christmas...
