What has become a Christmas Tradition…

Twas two days before Christmas
And my house is a mess.
How will it ever be ready
for dinner and guests?

Christmas cheer

I’ve not begun baking
nor cleaning just yet
but soon as I’m done blogging,
to the kitchen I’ll get.

Cedric checks the presents

The gifts have been wrapped
on that step I’m ahead
but there’s still plenty to do
before this body hits bed.

wrapping nearly done

But poor Michaela had asked,
“What about snow?
Surely you can show me
some pictures ‘fore you go!”

Teddy enjoys the snow

Especially for you,
I tromped out into the white!
A true New Englander,
It gives me no fright!


little tree in the snow

I wish you no worries
from this silly blog of mine.
I wish you Merry Christmas
and a peaceful holiday time!

Little tree at night

ETA: I may have unintentionally given the impression, I’ve realized after reading some comments, that it is still snowy here. This past weekend brought temperatures near 60 degrees F – all snow is completely gone! It is green and muddy and mushy here now.


  1. What a creative piece, great job!

  2. Wonderful Karma! Merry Christmas to you and your family! It’s Christmas Eve morning here and I’m spending the day baking and cleaning myself. (After I drop by to leave Christmas wishes with all of my blogging friends first though….priorities!) πŸ™‚

  3. From the soggy shores of Nova Scotia to snowy New England … in other words from “new Scotland” to “new England” … the merriest of Christmas greetings and all the best for a joyous New Year !

    • Thank you Sybil and Merry Christmas to you too. This part of New England is no longer snowy. We are soggy too after a weekend of unseasonably warm temperatures.

    • Thanks Kathy. This is the third time I’ve used old Clement Moore’s format for a Christmas poem here on the blog, lol!

  6. I love your poem again this year! Such great writing and I love the pictures. It looks so Christmas-y. It doesn’t look that way on Cape Cod.

    • These pictures are all the snow you will see around here for Christmas. The weekend of 60 degree temps melted it all away.

    • Thank you Sonali – and best wishes for 2014 for you as well. My husband put up the little tree in the front yard so that he could add the extra Christmas lights there. He did a nice job.

  9. Awww….I’ve made it into your pre-Christmas poem! And I missed it!!! Never did have a chance to make my blog rounds before we left for Florida…was a nice surprise this morning and made me smile πŸ™‚
    LOOOOVE the picture of the lighted, snow covered tree! So beautiful! And I love your other pictures as well.
    Hope you got everything done that needed to be done, and had a really nice Christmas.
    We had a white Christmas, too, but it was snowy white sand, not snowy shite snow. Good enough πŸ™‚

    • I figured you’d enjoy that bit of my poem whenever you had the chance to read it πŸ™‚
      Thank you, and yes, I eventually got it all done like always, and collapsed into an exhausted heap once Christmas was over!

  10. Wonderful Christmas post! Your snow looks beautiful. Too bad it turned into mud and mush. I hope you and your family had a very Merry Christmas, and wishing you all the best for 2014!

    • Thanks so much Robin. The mud and mush is now crunchy and frozen – after the 60 degree temps the weekend before Christmas, then downpouring rain on Saturday (I think the same day you had it), we are back to really cold temps. It is only about 11 degrees this morning, and more snow expected Thursday night into Friday! That’s New England for you! We go back to school on Thursday – I’m wondering about a snow day on Friday now.

  11. […] Time for my annual traditional blog post, with apologies to C. Clement Moore! (You can see the last three years’ Christmas poems here, here and here.) […]
