It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!

We started our week getting into the festive mood, decorating our yurt and surrounding trees with Christmas lights and ornaments. How fun! Little did we know that later in the week nature was going to provide us with her own type of Christmas decoration!

Look how cozy this scene looks! Here's the yurt nestled among our decorated trees, under the full moon …

Then on Thursday evening, a rare and beautiful thing occured here in the Texas Hill Country ... Snowfall!

While Bill and I are well accustomed to snow, it felt like such a novelty here at the ranch, that we went a bit crazy taking photos! (Definitely would not be doing this if I was still in Canada!!) 

For all of you wondering if we stayed warm enough in our new yurt, the answer is a happy and resounding "yes"! We have a 3 ton mini-split system that provides air conditioning (for those hot Texan Summers), and heat (for those unexpected Texan snowfalls!).

For a Canadian, it was my perfect snowfall … gone the next day!

Wishing you all a beautiful festive season.

Until next week,

Marilyn & Bill.

Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.
I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.

The design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Many thanks

I believe what you published was very logical. However, what about this?
what if you added a little information? I am not saying your information is not good., however suppose you added a post title to maybe grab folk's attention? I mean The Cedars Ranch is kinda vanilla.
You ought to glance at Yahoo's home page and see how they create article titles to grab viewers to
open the links. You might add a video or a picture or two to get people interested
about everything've got to say. Just my opinion, it could bring
your posts a little livelier.

it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any methods to help stop content from being ripped off?
I'd really appreciate it.
