At the beginning of this month I had the amusing notion that I didn't have much to do this December and would actually have moments of boredom. Not true after all! Perhaps this is what happens when one grows up or perhaps it's just what happens during December. Whatever the case may be, It has become increasingly difficult to find a time to take pictures. But alas amid the freezing weather and busyness of the past few days I was able to sneak outside in a moment of relative warmth and calm to get these pictures.
