These were taken in the late afternoon. Well about 4pm I think. I was walking home from the mountain base.
And this one just happens to be my favourite. Somehow, a random photo became spectacular. To me, I hasten to add. I just love seeing the mountain soaring out of the clouds!
And today it is snowing. It has been snowing since the middle of the night and will do for the rest ofthe day I think. But when it stops, and the blue skies appear, it will be Engelberg at its very best.
I am supposed to be making the mince pies (fruit). That was until I got the pastry I made yesterday out of the fridge. It is supposed to be chilled. Not as hard as a rock. Right now it could be used to build a wall. So everything is lined up and ready, and the pastry has to soften. Just a bit. Sigh.
We were going down the mountain today to do some shopping, but the snow is too heavy, and there was ice on the roads round Luzern and many accidents, so we are here, and my sister is making some Christmas presents. I am watching snowflakes drift down. The huge tree outside the window looks as if it is sculpted from ice. Beautiful.
I am off to poke the pastry to see if it is soft enough. Have a great day, and turn up that Christmas music!
